Home | About


Alba has been established for over 25 years and continues to serve public, private and third sector clients locally and nationally through the provision of capable people, equipment and business processes.

John Currie, Managing Director, founded Alba in 1995. The 100-year old building in St Michael’s Street, Dumfries is now home to a contemporary suite of offices, studios and a high-tech print operation.

Print remains a core part of the business, but with a strong Design Team, Alba also provides creative and digital solutions for its clients.

With ongoing investment in staff and technology, Alba clients receive a first class, personal service. We welcome enquiries from anyone looking for advice, quotations or information about our services.

At our site in Dumfries we offer a one-stop design, print and sign display service, from one-off projects to complete marketing and sales campaigns, we can do it all!

With a dedicated management team, a highly experienced team of graphic designers and a professionally trained print production team, we pride ourselves in delivering quality products and outstanding customer service.

Kevin Laurie (right), Print Production Manager, joined the company in 1995. Kevin is a member of our Management Team and received his 25 year service award in 2020.

Moira Steed, General Manager, is also a longstanding member of our Management Team and has worked with us for 23 years.

Russell Milligan, our Design Studio Manager, joined us more recently in 2019. Russell is an experienced graphic designer and heads up our design team.

Alba also has a loyal and experienced team of employees, many of them being with the company for 10+ years.

Nurturing young talent is also important to Alba. We run a highly successful apprenticeship scheme and offer work experience through the local college and schools.

We are extremely proud of our current Apprentice, Russell Williamson, who won the Print Scotland ‘Scottish Print Apprentice of the Year’ Award in 2020. Well done Russell!

Wherever possible, we support local business in a range of sponsorship activities and have established firm roots in the community. 

At Alba we adhere to best practice standards and are proud to up-hold ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System, ISO 14001 Environmental Management System as well as membership of Print Scotland and Dumfries and Galloway Chamber of Commerce.


We have worked closely with Alba Printers on a number of projects, including the signage and menu boards for our new Bothy.  Alba have always provided us with a reliable friendly service, great designs and a quick turnaround.  We’re delighted with the printing they have done for our Bothy and would certainly recommend them to others.
