He printed some books, but eventually the firm concentrated on limited-run printing of commercial documents including circulars, forms, cards, and booklets on behalf of clients drawn from local businesses, churches, and associations. This small jobbing printing works appears in the Glasgow Post Office directories from 1864 until 1964 .
