It all started with imperial stamps
Our story began in 1859 when our small printing unit of four became the first staff members of the newly founded Imperial Senate Printing House located in downtown Helsinki. Back then Finland was not an independent nation but part of the Russian Empire and our very first job was to print stamps for Tsar Alexander II. He liked them.
How we became the trusted printers of the Finnish governmental institutions
When Finland gained independency on December 6th 1917 we, in addition to the very first Finnish paper bills called markka and plenty of new account books, started printing stamps for the Finnish Postal Service instead. From early on we understood that our work mattered and realized the comprehensive importance of stamps. They were crucial not only for reliable and well-functioning communication but a symbol of liberty and free speech of a new-born northern nation of Finland that would soon develop to become one of the happiest and most equal countries in the world. For decades that followed Finland’s independency we acted as the trusted printing experts of the Finnish governmental institutions and continued to innovate new printing techniques for stamps, letters, menus, envelopes, lottery coupons, schoolbooks, poem collections, menu cards, pamphlets, newspapers, law texts, magazines and election forms and tax forms and others print products alike. In short, we helped Finland learn how to communicate more efficiently.
For more than 160 years we have lead the way towards more sustainable paperless future
Even in the very beginning the ideas of customer journey were in the core of our field of expertise. Over the past 160 years we have successfully updated our approach and expanded from old analog printing to paperless digital services. We still print a lot of quality paper such as election forms, law documents and contract forms but more and more our main task is to turn digital data friendly and the sea of numbers useful for our clients. But despite of new medias, technologies, channels and platforms our main job hasn’t change. We still help our clients communicate more efficiently and our plan is to keep on orchestrating automated customer journeys to perfection for another 160 years and beyond. In short term we want to lead the way towards more sustainable future that soon enough will be paperless. One day we aim to provide digital stamps for space communication between Earth and Mars. That is our mission.
