Stevens Graphics is a printing subsidiary of AT&T which specializes in printing telephone directories. It began as the Ruralist Press in the 1880s, printing seed catalogs for H. G. Hasting's company and later publishing The Southern Ruralist magazine, a monthly which merged with Progressive Farmer in the 1930s.
The Ruralist Press opened a plant in Birmingham in the 1960s. In 1971 the company was acquired by the J. P. Stevens Company and began operating as Stevens Graphics, a subsidiary. In 1980 the company purchased the former Oxmoor Press at 100 West Oxmoor Road, doubling its size and becoming the exclusive printer for the BellSouth Yellow Pages.
