Gateway Printing & Office Supply, Inc.

A Brief History

Gateway Printing & Office Supply, Inc., and its subsidiary, Jones & Cook Stationers, Inc., have been satisfying South Texas customer needs for over 100 years combined. Gateway Printing, in its current form, traces it roots to 1963, when W.G. "Dub" Bailey and partners bought the Edinburg company. Mr. Bailey later acquired sole ownership of the firm.

By the late 1990s, Gateway Printing & Office Supply, Inc., had become the Rio Grande Valley's largest commercial printer, held a substantial presence in the office supply business and was South Texas' leading provider of teaching supplies.

Jones & Cook Stationers dates back to 1926 when Amy Jones founded the firm in McAllen, lending books for a fee. As the company expanded into office supplies, it occupied a single downtown McAllen location until 1980, when then-owner Foss Jones launched a series of acquisitions that expanded the company across South Texas and grew it into one of the largest independent office supply and office furniture operations in Texas.

Gateway Printing purchased Jones & Cook in November of 2008. The company now has operations in six South Texas cities, stretching from Houston to McAllen, with corporate offices in Edinburg.

Together, the combined firms offer customers top-quality office supplies, teaching materials and printing, all at competitive prices with superior service.

Gateway/Jones&Cook is now one of the leading independent office supply operations in the State of Texas, offering our private sector and government customers a choice of more than 25,000 office supply items.

Gateway Printing/Jones & Cook's affiliation with American Office Products Distributors, Inc., allows us to efficiently service orders anywhere in the U.S. The firm's membership in the Trimega Purchasing Group, the largest American office products buying cooperative, lets us offer even greater value to our customers.

And Gateway Printing remains one of the largest teaching supply retailers in Texas, carrying a full line of classroom resources for teachers.

Gateway Printing remains South Texas' premier commercial printer. The company today focuses on producing high-quality, four-color printing for national and international businesses, as well as for local companies and organizations.

So whether you need commercial printing, office supplies or furniture, or educational aids, at Gateway Printing and Jones & Cook, we truly are dedicated to meeting all our customers' needs with superior service.
