A Little History . . .

TR Press, Inc.

TR Press, Inc was formed with partners Tony Tedeschi and Rob Barbaris to meet the needs of the growing local printing market. Its foundation was made up of two previous local printing companies.   The Hunt Country Copy Center was located in the building across from The Carousel. It provided Fauquier County with its first quick print and desktop publishing service center, featuring an Apple Mac Plus with PageMaker 1.0 and an Apple Laser Writer printer.
