Eighty Years Ago - Our Association is Born


This year has seen the 80th anniversary of the formation of the forerunner of FESPA UK Association - The Silk Screen Printers and Display Producers Association - and we thought it would be interesting to take a trip back in time to see what our predecessors got up to in those early days.
