Tim Wilson - Owner & Founder
Tim Wilson is the owner and founder of Wilson Printing & Graphics. His unwavering insistence on the finest care to every detail of every facet of operation has made the company a success since he founded it in 1986. Tim is happiest when he’s working with customers, so give him a call for guidance through your project. He’s the go-to person for job quotes, project planning, mailing jobs, and many graphic design projects. Tim has the uncanny ability to solve any project issue, and he simply refuses to allow a sub-standard job to leave the doors of his shop. A self-made business man, Tim always keeps an eye toward his company maintaining strong community involvement and supporting the London (OH) and Madison County business community and economy.
Tim’s interest in the printing profession was born from his involvement in producing his school newspapers, newsletters, and yearbooks, and it can be traced far back to his schoolboy fascination with the ditto and mimeograph machines. Was it that familiar color that hooked him? Or, was it the smell of the duplicator fluid? Ditto and mimeograph days are long gone, but Tim’s keen business sense has paved the way for him to stay on top of the ever-evolving technology of the print industry.
Community involvements include a lifelong membership in his church (First United Methodist Church, London), where he is a trustee, building maintenance manager, and coordinator of the active kitchen. He has given lectures to students about printing and graphic design software at local high schools.
When not in the print shop, Tim can be found tinkering in his many mechanically based hobbies (he can fix just about anything!), including classic cars (he loves 1960′s Lincoln Continentals), pipe organs (he has one in his home!), Standard Electric Time Company clocks (visit the office to see an amazing installation of the reclaimed clock system from his elementary school), dishwashers, and most any other kitchen appliance.

In addition to supporting her girls in their sports activities, Barb participates in many of their other involvements as well, including advising the Green Range 4-H Club. She also is an active member of the Madison County Agricultural Society, which presents the Madison County Fair. Come July of each year, Barb takes her organizational skills to the fair’s central office almost around the clock!

Wilson Printing & Graphics is very fortunate to haveNeil Pierce as its press man, and we believe his talent at printing truly elevates WP&G to a class all its own.

You can count on his skills to bring you the cleanest registration, the truest colors, and very consistent ink coverage to any job you have. His attention to detail and his own extremely high work standards guarantee a quality print job every time. You can count on it! Neil also has a hand in pre-press and darkroom work.
