They say that you shouldn't let your past define you...we say that depends on your past. In 1865, Andrew Marshall and J.H. Bruce founded Marshall & Bruce Printing Co., eventually finding itself here in Nashville's Gulch. Surviving a fire, the Great Depression, and World War II, this printing company, known for it's quality and heritage would eventually leave this location to an office on Davidson Street - but not before making an indelible mark on the area. You can still see the red and blue "MB" logo painted on our exterior. We feel that the same passion for quality that drove Marshall & Bruce to persist are imbued within these humble brick and mortar walls. We intend to continue that legacy of quality and a commitment to people.
