Originally founded in Hartford CT at the end of the 19th century, Finlay is now in its 133rd year in business. Today, the award-winning company employs over 100 people and is one of the most successful and innovative printing and marketing solution firms in North America. Finlay’s customers tend to be highly branded companies in a variety of markets including: education, corporate, retail point-of-sale, financial services and design. The company’s reference list features some of the most respected companies, brands and organizations in the nation including Callaway Golf., Stanley Tools, Yankee Candle Co., Yale University, Nine West, New Balance, Guinness, and The Smithsonian Museums to name a few.

Over the years, Finlay has become a prime example of a firm that strives to continuously enhance the value offerings it delivers to clients, thereby ensuring its own growth and continued profitability. According to the firm’s CEO Kevin Kalagher, “Much of Finlay’s success can be attributed to the company’s ability to offer complete turnkey project management, from concept through delivery, supported by our consistent investment in state of the art technology”.

Over the last few decades, Finlay has significantly expanded its core printing capabilities, and has become an early adopter of peripheral services, such as scanning, typesetting and die cutting, that have been woven into a smooth and uninterrupted workflow. Recently, other services have also been added, such as fulfillment, digital printing, photography and design services, enabling Finlay to expand its capabilities even more.
