The Pepin Press are creators of high-quality art & design products, such as paper goods, illustrated books, art materials, bags and purses. Our subject matter: graphic design, fashion, costume, jewellery, pattern & ornament, typography, etc.

The company grew out of Pepin van Roojen’s one-man graphic design and book production operation in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, which started in 1988. In 1990, the first book under the Pepin Press imprint was published and we have since brought out some 500 titles.

In the mid-1990s, after many years in Asia, Pepin relocated back to his home town, Amsterdam. However, the link with the Far East was never severed: most of our production takes place in Asia and we have a logistic hub in Singapore.

The Pepin Press BV (Netherlands) and The Pepin Press LLC (U.S.A.) are subsidiaries of Pepin Holding BV.

Image Archive

Over the past 30 years we have built a huge archive of books, prints, decorative art originals, textiles and fashion items. In addition, we have an archive of tens of thousands of digitized, and often restored, patterns, ornaments and illustrations. Most of our products are developed using content selected from our archives.

Organization

In tandem with our creative focus, we have paid much attention to building an outstanding international distribution network. We maintain warehouses in Europe, Asia and the U.S.A. In addition, we have stockholding partners in some 60 countries. Our products are available worldwide in thousands of bookstores, art supply and craft stores, computer stores, museum stores, department stores, online retailers and many other types of outlets. Some of our best-selling products have sold over 1 million units worldwide.

Following a career as international sales manager with large German publishing companies, Pepin’s wife, Anette van Roojen, joined the company as Sales Director in 2000. At present Anette and Pepin jointly run the company with a small and dedicated team, assisted by a group of about 30 freelancers.

PEPIN® is the brand name and registerd trademark of our range of high-quality stationery and gift products.
