Biography of Fox & Fox (Show Cards)
Erie County, NY Biographies


Fox & Fox, Buffalo. - The largest show card and label finishing establishment of its kind in the world is that of Fox & Fox of Buffalo. This business was established in 1882 in Rochester, and branched out in Buffalo in 1888. It increased so rapidly in the West that they were compelled to move the main office and works in 1889 to Buffalo, where they now occupy ample premises, conveniently located on Erie street. The building is brick, three stories in height, with basement, 25 by 150 feet in dimensions. It is equipped with ample steam power, and the best improvements in machinery and appliances suitable to the business. From thirty to fifty skilled operators are employed, who turn out the very finest work. Fine labels, maps, book covers aud show cards are much improved by embossing and varnishing and the work made much more serviceable for shelf and store ware. Gummed paper is made to order, or is gummed after being printed. It lays fiat and keeps in every climate. Maps, show cards, hangers, etc., cloth backed, taped and tin mounted, are neatly and promptly executed. They cut straight paper and dies of all odd and intricate shapes, labels, show cards, fans, calendars, tags, cigarette boxes, envelopes, seed bags and all work required by lithographers, printers and publishers. The firm has no connection with any printing or lithographing establishment, but are general finishers for the trade. All work entrusted to them is treated in a confidental manner, and under no circumstances is any person permitted to inspect the premises beyond the office. Therefore all work is treated with the utmost confidence. The members of the firm are Frederick G. and Albert E. Fox, brothers, natives of Rochester, and business men of the highest standing and largest ability. Their trade is increasing very rapidly, and is already the most extensive, in this branch, in the world.
