100+ years, through two world wars, two global pandemics, and countless changes to our industry, we’re standing strong and proud as part of the future of Canadian printing in 2021 and beyond.

Our History

It was 1919 – Canada had been a country for a mere 52 years and the province of Saskatchewan was just 14 years old when two local businessmen joined together to create a new printing company in their hometown.

Houghton Boston Printers NOW

Where does the name Houghton Boston Printers come from?

From our two founders, Alfred Houghton and Herbert Boston, who returned to Canada together after serving in World War One and joined their skills in the creation of a business to meet the growing printing needs of the newly incorporated City of Saskatoon.

What does the future hold for us?

Making it to 100 years as an independent business of choice in 2019 was an exceptionally proud moment for us, but we’re not slowing down now. In a rapidly changing world, we keep doing what we do best, helping our clients bring the written word to life in print.

Our dedicated staff of professionals and craftspeople continue to work together to bring high-quality printing to customers in our home province of Saskatchewan, across Canada and the Pacific North West, and worldwide.
