About Us

The Caxton Printers, Ltd. is a family-owned business with a rich tradition of over 120 years in the printing industry. Our journey began in 1895 when Albert E. Gipson established a newspaper publishing company in Caldwell, Idaho. From horticultural magazines to commercial printing, we have evolved into a renowned printing and publishing enterprise deeply rooted in our commitment to excellence.

At Caxton, we understand the power of books as more than mere commodities. We share J.H. Gipson’s belief that books are a reflection of our culture and should be created with utmost care and dedication. This philosophy has guided us throughout our history, fueling our passion for producing exceptional publications that endure the test of time.



Rich Tradition and Bright Future

Over the years, our services have expanded to include commercial printing, textbook distribution, school supplies, and private book production. Our printing capabilities range from process color offset to toner-based digital printing, allowing us to cater to a diverse range of projects with precision and efficiency.

As we look to the future, we remain committed to evolving with the changing landscape of the printing industry. We embrace new technologies and delivery methods while upholding our core customer service and product excellence values. Our dedicated team of professionals, combined with state-of-the-art equipment, ensures that we consistently meet the evolving needs of our clients.

Proud Publishing Source

One of our proudest achievements is our publishing department, which has produced renowned titles in Western Americana. Books like Yellow Wolf and Hear Me, My Chiefs! continue to be influential works in Nez Perce Indian studies, reflecting our commitment to preserving and sharing the stories that have shaped the West. Other more recent titles such as Dreamers on the Trail of the Nez Perce (Pacific Northwest Book Award), From Sand Creek to Summit Springs: Colorado’s Indian Wars (2023 Will Rogers Award), and Fishes of Idaho (2020 Idaho Library Association Book Award) continue to reflect the quality writing, intellectual rigor, and craftsmanship that we have become known for.

At Caxton, we value our community, our customers, and our employees. We treat our customers as part of our extended family, offering personalized service and attention to detail. Our long-standing tradition of knowledge and expertise sets us apart from our competitors, guaranteeing that your printing projects are in the hands of experienced professionals.
