The History of Harry's Printers
In 1929, Lalloo Harry, a cobbler by trade with a gift for spiritual writing, needed a way to distribute his religious works more easily. His son, Mohan, took on the task. He bought a hand-held press and started printing as a hobby.
Harry’s Printers grew from this humble beginning, eventually becoming a robust business and moving from St. Georges Road to premises on Kimberley Road. Vrij Harry, the current MD, took over the company in 1973 and has grown the business into the largest printer in the Eastern Cape.
Harry’s is still a family-owned business with branches in Pretoria, King William’s Town and Port Elizabeth, and a staff contingent of approximately 170.
Harry’s offers customers innovative solutions of the highest quality at the most reasonable prices. The group has branched out to offer digital and wide-format printing, marketing and communications services and IT solutions.
We are passionate about what we do and are very proud of our staff and our customers. At Harry’s, each job is treated with individual care and our clients are offered professional solutions.
A rich history
The story behind the Parrot
When L. Harry and Sons started printing commercially, we adopted the symbol of the parrot to represent the world of colour we became a part of. As the company and the industry have evolved, the parrot has changed to symbolise our growth. The latest incarnation is a vibrantly coloured bird in full flight and displaying a large wingspan, as the Harry’s Group has diversified into digital printing, design, communications and IT solutions.
