When my grandfather, Frank Parker Sr., started Parker Pad & Printing it was 1946. The NBA had played its inaugural game at Maple Leaf Gardens between the Toronto Huskies and the New York Knickerbockers, Jimmy Stewart was about to star in It’s a Wonderful Life, and Chuck Yeager was making history when his plane broke the sound barrier.
Although the original equipment list at Parker Pad & Printing was just a manual letterpress, Frank Parker also made a commitment to provide superior printing services to customers – a commitment that continues to this day.
From that original press, Parker Pad & Printing evolved our reputation through three generations of printing professionals that took our company to new heights in customer service and superior printing.
