History of Judges

In 1902, Fred Judge founded Judges Postcards in Hastings, East Sussex.

In 1927, Fred relocated the business from the town centre to its current iconic premises. Over the decades, the building was expanded, equipment modernised and today the company upholds Fred’s ethos of creativity and quality to cater for modern demands.

During his lifetime, Fred Judge won over 100 trophies, exhibited in America, Australia, Japan, and New Zealand. He was especially honoured with one-man shows in London, New York and Washington, and had 83 acceptances in the annual exhibitions of the Royal Photographic Society.

We now have Heidelberg lithographic equipment together with state-of-the-art digital printers and all our design and finishing takes place under the same roof.
