Proud of our NEBRASKA roots
FROM BLUE HILL TO HASTINGS, NEBRASKA. WE ARE IN OUR FOURTH GENERATION.
In 1927, Bryon Vaughan started Vaughan’s Printers in Blue Hill, Nebraska as a commercial printing operation. He did this in conjunction with printing and publishing the Blue Hill Leader. Bryon’s two sons, William (Bill) and Thomas (Tom), learned the printing business as young boys. After serving in the military, Bill and Tom took over the business. They ran the commercial printing business out of the Blue Hill Leader office until 1958 when they moved to Hastings. Bill’s son, Bill R. Vaughan took over the family business in 2007 with a strong team moving the Vaughan tradition forward. Vaughan’s is now in its fourth generation. Bill’s daughter, Maggie, became owner in 2018.
PRINTING IN 2019
It’s no secret that the printing industry isn’t as vibrant as it once was with the advancements in technology. Vaughans Printers has evolved from a hand-set letterpress shop to a full-service offset printing plant. We offer one and two-color job work through four-color process printing. We also offer digital printing. To supplement our customer’s needs, we have equipment that produces perforating, scoring, numbering, plus various bindery services, including folding, stapling, padding. and bulk mail.
Printing is a old craft trade that has been passed down through the generations. With new modern techniques and equipment plus good old-fashioned quality, we at Vaughan’s Printers continue to offer quality printing and competitive pricing to all our customers.
A Message From Maggie
This is so exciting. A few years ago, I could have never predicted where we are today. A few years ago, I wasn’t sure if I would get the chance to be fourth generation owner of Vaughan’s Printers. After my dad’s passing in 2017, a big question mark floated over the future of Vaughan’s. In a short time the answer become obvious. Hastings is home for our family. Hastings is home for our business. The Hastings community embraces local and we are so fortunate to have a thriving and strong community supporting us as we move forward. So THANK YOU to you our customers for your continued business and for the future that’s ahead.
Vaughan’s has a great team behind it allowing me to continue my role at Hastings Economic Development Corporation while they run the show day in and day out.
