Morgan Litho Co.


The most dominant litho company in the movie poster industry had it's beginning right after the Civil War when William J. Morgan and George William Morgan opened their doors in 1866. The initial name of the company was WJ Morgan Lithographers.

Some of the accomplishments include their claim to have invented the billboard and they were the first litho company handling movie posters to switch from stone litho to offset press.

They became the dominant lithographer until 1957 when National Screen Service bought Continental Litho to provide the plates. After a 2 year transitional period for NSS, Morgan closed their doors in 1960.
