Ernest J. Day vs. Garrod & Lofthouse

Published July 15th, 2011

During the sixties, EMI used two companies to manufacture its abum covers. Approximately 90% of EMI’s covers were made and printed by Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd., which had factories in London, Manchester, Catherham, Crawley and Redhill. The remaining 10% were manufactured by Ernest J. Day & Co. Ltd. Although the initial covers for the Beatles first album, “Please Please Me”, were made by Ernest J. Day, the bulk of future printed was handled by Garrod & Lofthouse. While six of the first eight album covers were printed by both companies, the other covers were made exclusively by Garrod & Lofthouse, including the gatefold cover of “Beatles For Sale” and gatefold cover for “The White Album”. Garrod & Lofthouse also printed the inserts for “Sgt. Pepper” and “The White Album”, as well as the “Let It Be” deluxe book and box.
