Hall Printing has a long and rich history of providing print to the communities of the West Kootenay. Hall Printing was founded in 1920 and has made many transformations in equipment and staff in the almost 100 years of print. We have some cases of letterpress type next to a windmill letterpress which is still used for numbering, scoring and perforating. In the modern print shop, heavy lead type has given way to massive amounts of network cable to connect all the computer controlled production machines.

Ingrid and Ron Hope are the current owners of Hall Printing after purchasing the business from Dave and Gail Chartres in 2005. When Ingrid started at Hall Printing in 1990 as the front office receptionist, the shop consisted of one slow copier, three presses and no computer. Now the two shops in Trail and Nelson depend on 6 copiers, 3 large format printers, 3 presses and 21 computers to print on tons of paper every year.


Large capital investments every year keep equipment current and improve the environmental footprint of Hall Printing. All our platemaking is chemical free, we use vegetable oil based ink, most of our house stock is FSC certified and all waste is recycled. We even have a carpool car for some employees.

Hall Printing staff is the reason for our success. Their dedication to their careers has allowed Hall Printing to have a reputation for quality and excellence in service. They are highly skilled professionals that have a combined total of over 200 years experience. Once you are in the business of print, the ink gets in your veins and becomes your life blood.
