About Walsworth

Walsworth, among the 30 largest printing companies in the U.S. and top three book printers, is headquartered in Marceline, Mo., a town commonly known as the boyhood home of Walt Disney.

In 1937, Don Walsworth settled in Marceline to print playbills with a borrowed typewriter and a mimeograph machine. Soon the product line was expanded to include cookbooks and, following World War II, memorial books to honor those who had served their country.

In 1947, Walsworth began to produce yearbooks. In 1970, the Commercial printing division was established to balance the cyclical yearbook production schedule, adding textbooks, catalogs, magazines and other specialty publications to the Walsworth line.

Today, Walsworth is still a family-owned company that employs more than 1,250 people worldwide, and more than 250 of them have 20 or more years of service to the company. Several members of various families work for Walsworth, and at times, those families have included three generations simultaneously.

Walsworth boasts more than 675 employees who have attained the Master Printer of America status.

The company operates from administrative offices and printing and binding facilities in Marceline, Mo., a prepress facility in Brookfield, Mo., a sales and marketing office in Overland Park Ks., and a printing facility in Saint Joseph, Mich. Additionally, Walsworth owns the Donning Company Publishers in Virginia Beach, Va., a specialty book publisher, and The Ovid Bell Press in Fulton, Mo., a printer of journals and magazines.

Walsworth provides customers with the best possible solutions to grow revenue, improve customer engagement and realize meaningful results.
