map & directons to Old Trail Printing History    
The Old Trail Printing Company was founded by Mr. Fred Whiteman in 1928. The company took its name from the street that it was built on. It was the Old Trail, or Route 40, as it was known at the time. In 1964, Mr. Whiteman sold the printing company to a young man who worked as a press operator at a local printing operation. His name was Bernie Held. He was determined to grow Old Trail Printing into one of the finest printing companies in the greater Columbus area. Bernie laid the foundation for the key element that would separate us from the rest of the crowd for generations to come. His passion for excellence in printing extended well into the values and character of the people he employed.

In 1987, Bernie passed away at the age of 61, but his legacy lives on at Old Trail Printing. His wife Mary is still active in the company as CEO. Bernie’s three children, Mike Held, Dave Held, and Sue Horn run the company with the same ideals that Bernie embodied. Our people are still our most valued asset. The Held family’s passion for quality, people and excellence in printing services remain the same.

See for yourself. We know what really makes a printer great and you’ll find it all at Old Trail Printing. In this fast-paced, ever-changing world we live in, it’s good to know that some things haven’t changed and never will.
