In 1960, John Manno, Sr., originally from Brooklyn, New York, and his wife Angelina founded Southland Printing Company, Inc. in the basement of his father-in-law's home in Shreveport, LA. It soon became apparent that Southland would specialize in printing for the parking industry. John invented an array of products which sky-rocketed Southland into becoming the world leader in parking lot tickets and related items.
