Our story began in the early 1950s. Gaetano Gagliano and his growing family emigrated from Italy shortly after the war. Upon their arrival to Canada, Gaetano found work laying track for CP Rail. But as he worked long days over the next two years, Gaetano couldn’t forget about his life-long dream of becoming a printer. So in 1956, Gaetano started a small print business in the basement of his small family home. He specialized in letterpress work such as birth announcements, invitations and business cards.
With an unwavering commitment to his values of hard work and integrity, Gaetano expanded his small print business through new equipment and technology, strategic acquisitions and bigger facilities. By the 1980s, St. Joseph Print was one of largest privately owned print companies in Canada.
The 1990s to early 2000s was a time of incredible growth. St. Joseph continued to grow its print business as well as expand into photography, content creation, publishing and media. Today, we are a full-service marketing and communications provider with strong ties to our humble beginnings.
