Company History

Our story begins in 1923, when Shuford Futch Sr. started a small business called Advertising and Sales Service Company. In 1940, he officially changed the name to Futch Letter Shop. We moved into our downtown location on Forsyth Street in 1945, and incorporated in 1965 as Futch Printing & Mailing, Inc.

In 1967, Shuford Futch Jr. took over, and when he retired in 1995, the third generation - Shuford Futch III - took over the reigns. We added and modernized equipment, expanded our services (four-color-process, anyone?), and continued to grow. We stayed downtown until October 2004 (just a few months before Super Bowl XXXIX), at which point, in order to keep up with our customers' growing needs and to make ourselves more accessible to our clients, we moved to a much bigger location on the Westside of Jacksonville, and even started training the fourth generation in the business of printing and mailing! The Edgewood Ave. location served its purpose for the next ten years, to the point that in 2014, we decided to make Westside our permanent home. We purchased and moved into our current building at 4606 Shirley Avenue, and we couldn't be happier! We invite you to come visit our new shop - it's got a history of its own!

It seems like every company talks about the importance of customer service, but one of the lasting cornerstones of Futch Printing & Mailing is the way our clients feel about doing business with us. Our dependability and reliability have become very renowned. When you work fast, hardly ever miss a deadline, have fair prices, and treat people with dignity and respect, it's hard not to grow your business. That's what we do, and so we invite you to consider using Futch Printing & Mailing the next time your company needs printing or mailing services. We would love the opportunity to become your printing and mailing partner.  We do things very differently than the other printers in our community, and we believe we can provide the best all-around experience for you if you'll give us a try.

When you are ready to discuss your printing or mailing needs, please call us, email us, or just stop by. Or, if you prefer, we'll be happy to visit you at your office. Either way, we would be happy to discuss how we can help your business succeed and prosper - and to ADDRESS ALL YOUR PRINTING & PROMOTIONAL PRODUCT NEEDS.
