J-Mart Publishing Company in Spanish Fork has been named the December Business of the Month by the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce.

One cannot think of one without thinking of the other – that is, historic Spanish Fork Main Street and J-Mart Publishing Company, which came into being in 1962 when J.C. Henderson and his wife, Maureen, bought a small printing business and a web press. Through the years, J-Mart, as it affectionately became known, has printed literally thousands of announcements for weddings, baby births and missionary farewells as well as  family histories and everything from school to Sunday school lessons. For decades, J-Mart also published the news of the community in the Spanish Fork Press.

r

Today, the web press is gone; sadly, J.C. is as well, and Maureen is rarely seen in the shop. In their places, however, are son Lane Henderson and his wife, Leslie Money Henderson, along with equipment that includes both digital laser printers and offset presses capable of accommodating print jobs as small as a few scrapbook pages or as large as thousands of business forms. J-Mart can provide copies on demand or produce hardbound books.

r

A veteran of the Spanish Fork Salem Area Chamber of Commerce, Lane Henderson has served on the chamber’s board of directors and as president of the organization. His mother and father were also active in helping the community’s chamber come together and work for the good of the customer.

r

When the Henderson family was publishing the Spanish Fork Press, the newspaper was the winner of many local, state and national reporting awards. During the floods of 1983, it  was instrumental in helping residents keep up to date on the Thistle Slide and make preparations for what might come with rising river and lake waters.

r

J-Mart has been active in the community in everything from Scouting to Fiesta Days and most especially in helping keep the city’s historic Main Street vibrant and customer friendly. Both Lane and Leslie Henderson have been and are active in many civic and community duties and affairs.
