Robert Smails Printing Works

Robert Smails Printing Works

I’ll be showing work in progress from my residency at Robert Smail’s Printing Works,  Innerleithen.

For one hundred and twenty years Robert Smail’s Printing Works was the hub of the Scottish Borders’ town of Innerleithen, fulfilling the many printing needs of the local area and more until their closure in 1986, when the property was taken over by the National Trust for Scotland. It remains the only operational jobbing printer of its kind in the nation.
