Established in Invercargill in 1876, Craigs is one of the
oldest printing companies still operating in New Zealand today.
From humble beginnings in 1876 years ago, this illustrated history publication tells of the Southland firm’s long history – its highs and lows, its printing plant and retail stationery division and, of course, its people.
