A Brief History of Forbes Printing Company

Forbes Printing began on May 15th 1984 when Esley H. Forbes III and Diana Bost purchased a small downtown Lenoir NC business known as “the Printing House”. With prior experience in the printing industry, Esley and Diana began to transform the small print shop into one of the largest privately held commercial printing companies in Western NC. Forbes Printing has since grown into a top quality full service provider of commercial printing, servicing the “ink on paper” needs for many industries throughout the State of NC and across the nation. Three facility expansions(to over 21,000 square ft) over the years have allowed us to upgrade our technology and increase our capacity to keep pace with the growing demand for our services. The dedicated employees of Forbes Printing wish to express our ongoing thanks and appreciation to all of our customers for giving us the opportunity to serve you and manufacture for you and the companies you represent.
