Society of Lithographic Artists, Designers, Engravers and Process Workers

 

The Society of Lithographic Artists, Designers, Engravers and Process Workers was founded in 1885 as the National Society of Lithographic Artists, Designers and Writers, Copperplate and Wood Engravers. After a number of name changes it became the Society of Lithographic Artists, Designers, Engravers and Process Workers in 1922.

The SLADE & PW remained distinct from the Amalgamated Society of Lithographic Printers.  In 1972 it absorbed the smaller United Society of Engravers.  It amalgamated with the National Graphical Association in 1982 to form the National Graphical Association (1982).

Records relating to this union can be found at the University of Warwick Modern Records Centre.
