The legend was alive when Charlie Morriss was still at the helm back in the 1960's. They were one of the top printers of hard-bound books in North America. The actual end for Morriss Printing came in 2003 when they were bought by Rolex Plastics. They carried on in name only to attract customers, but the old standards were long gone.
^Terrible news. They are a legendary local company.

"Morriss has 141 unsecured creditors claiming $2.194 million, four secured creditors seeking $1.55 million and 85 preferred creditors."
"Most of the secured creditors are former employees claiming wages totalling $182,351."
As a point of interest, less than a dozen Morriss Printing employees that worked in the original building at 1745 Blanshard, moved to the Colwood location when the company was bought by Rolex in 2003. And that, was the end of the Morriss era.
