Parr's

Parr's

Profile:
Parr's Print & Litho Ltd. was a Canadian printing company, the first in the country to specialise in printing record jackets.
See also artist profile: Parr's Print & Litho Ltd., Toronto.

Their logo is a capital P underscored by a line under with the Parr's name below it, boxed in a thick black rectangle. On the album covers, the mention "Litho in Canada" was found to the left of the logo. Pre-1962 albums (like the early 6000 series from Capitol) have a different looking Parr's logo.

Capitol Records (Canada) Ltd. used Parr's as a primary printer between the late 50s and 1968.
Sleeves printed by Parr's housed records from the RCA plant as well as Decca / The Compo Company Ltd. plant. They also printed for Columbia / Epic in the 60s, London Records and Capitol / Pathé / Angel Records from the late 50s to mid 1969. They were the exclusive printer for GRT Of Canada Ltd. when it launched.
