Trim was started by Randolph Benson, one of the two founders of Grecian Guild Pictorial. (The other was John Bullock.) By 1960, Benson had sold Trim, and later Grecian Guild Pictorial, to H. Lynn Womack.

All of Womack's titles could be contacted through postal address boxes at Benjamin Franklin Station Washington, D.C. They shared similar graphic treatments and date annotation on their covers.
