A Brief History


Our company has its roots in the 1800's and has evolved through the years. In the early 1900's, the company published a German language newspaper, "Deutsche Zeitung" in Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA for the many immigrants from Germany.

After World War I, Louis A.R. Nelson, (an Army veteran wounded five times in France) went to work at Southern Printing and eventually took over and the name was changed to Nelson's Southern Printing and Publishing Company. His sons L.A Rohde Nelson, Jr. and Rhame Nelson joined him in the 1940's.

Today, The Nelson Printing Corporation is owned and operated by Eric H. Nelson, Rohde's son. Nelson's basic philosophy is still to serve our customers the best we can while forming long term friendships.
