The Company was founded in 1810. In 1868 Samuel Jones purchased 67 and 69 Peckham Grove for use as the centre for his stationery business. 1912 The factory and firm adopted the Camberwell Beauty butterfly emblem. (Two specimens were first caught in England in 1748, in Coldharbour Lane). The firm adopted the logo to demonstrate the possibility of printing several different colours on one piece of paper. By the 1920s the factory at 67 Peckham Grove had expanded into a complex of buildings that spanned Southampton Way and was one of the key employers in the area.
