    The Society was founded in 1944 by a Bristol printer, William R. Brace. He visualised an organisation which would enable printers to exchange views and experiences, pass on hints and tips, and generally promote a spirit of craftsmanship and friendliness. 

    Membership of the British Printing Society is open to anyone interested in printing, whether on an amateur or professional basis. Members include those who print for pleasure or profit, typographers, teachers, club officials and private publishers. Their common interest has proved a basis for lasting friendship. Overseas members are welcome.

    The Society publishes its own monthly magazine “Small Printer” which is distributed free to all members. Its contents include official and membership news, reviews, articles on the various aspects of printing, instructional features, correspondence, ideas and suggestions, details of suppliers and members' small advertisements.

    The Society has a library of several hundred books. These include advanced and elementary works on printing and crafts related to it, business organisation and costing, private press books, and specimens of printing. These books are available only to members resident in the British Isles. The loan period is eight weeks and no charge is made but borrowers are required to pay return postage.
