We're a young company with a long history and proud to have been based in Bristol for over 150 years. Take a look at our exciting journey...



John Lodge forms Lodge and Sons, a Stationer and Bookseller based in West Street, Bristol.


Lodge and Sons merge with Young and Humphrys to create Young Humphrys and Lodge. All print production is moved to Young and Humphrys site in central Bristol.


PRISM move to a new office, warehouse and print production facility in Emersons Green, Bristol.


PRISM launch their iconic Superhero branding. New digital printing equipment is installed, a new office is opened in Melksham and turnover doubles in the year.


Investments continue in technology, print equipment and the development of our industry-leading sales force.


We relocated our Taunton office to a purpose built location providing us with the space to continue to invest in our South West regional sales team, and build a dedicated customer service team within the region it serves. Investments in additional litho and digital presses also took place enabling us to continue providing superb quality print to our customers.


We launched our managed document services offering combining printer fleet management and a secure shredding solution. We also grew our presence further in the South West with the acquisition of the highly regarded Samson Office business. Based out of Ilminster, we maintained the existing team and added new resource as sales of new product areas including office furniture, print and managed document services started to grow.



Lodge and Sons start to print items on their own premises. 1932 Frank Lodge takes control of the business from his father. 1947 Lodge and Sons becomes an incorporated company.


Young Humphrys and Lodge changes its name to Print and Stationery Management, becoming PRISM.


PRISM undergoes a change of ownership, and together with a new management team sets about the latest phase of its development evolving the business into a national provider of office products, print and associated services.


Many new contracts are won supplying well-known businesses throughout the UK. Further investments are made in printing equipment and associated technology, a new office is opened in Taunton and sales grow by over 40% in the year.


As a result of further continued growth throughout the business and the launch of our office interiors division, PRISM moved to much larger premises. The new facility greatly increases our capacity to support new print management and office interiors contracts.


Having acquired the well-respected FX Direct business, we expanded into Surrey and London opening a new office to serve this market.
