The Pepin Press are creators and publishers high-quality books, paper products and gifts. Our subject matter: graphic design, fashion, costume, jewellery, pattern & ornament, typography, etc.
Originally strictly book publishers, The Pepin Press is currently developing a wide range of paper products, gift items & artist materials.
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 1994, after some eight 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.
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.
In tandem with our creative focus, we have paid much attention to building an outstanding international distribution network. We maintain warehouses in Singapore, the U.S.A., the U.K., France and Germany. 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 titles have sold over 500,000 copies.
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 50 freelancers.
PEPIN® is the brand name and registerd trademark of our range of high-quality stationery and gift products.
