George Frederick Smith’s guiding passion was a love for paper and a fascination for its limitless possibilities. This singular obsession led him to establish G . F Smith & Son in 1885. His passion took him across the Atlantic, seeking out the most beautiful materials, and created a legacy which, to this day, has put people at its heart.
Paper remains a profoundly important and valuable material. Today, more than ever, paper’s simple beauty reasserts its importance in our lives. In a world of transient communications and fleeting digital memories, paper offers texture, weight, and sensation. And, when used skilfully and creatively, can leave a lasting and powerful impression.
Proudly rooted in Hull and now a global supplier to the creative industries, G . F Smith works with some of the world’s most famous and discerning brands.
