The 1st Offset Printing had roots in Imperial Russia. It was founded in 1881 by Theodore Kibbel (Fedor Fyodorovich Kibbel) at Kronverkskaia and Mir Streets in St. Petersburg, (Petrograd). In 1917, the Council of People’s Commissars of Labor nationalized the Kibbel printing house and in 1918, the Soviets named it "1st State Lithography".
