Irwin Hodson Company

The Irwin-Hodson Company was originally founded in 1892 as the Ben C. Irwin Company. A four-man printing and bookbinding business, the Company depended primarily upon banks for their business, providing forms, ledgers, blank-books, and other office supplies. Salesmen traveled by stagecoach and train for weeks at a time to banks scattered throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana. Today, they craft quality embossed metal signs perfect for pointing you in the right direction and alerting you to not-so-friendly four-legged friends.
