About P.J Bookbinders Cape Town

In 1985 Peter John Barnes started P.J Bookbinders Cape Town with a few tools and some hand operated machinery at his home in Crawford.

For many years, he worked alone. Struggling to source correct material & tools as a result of no accounts or financial assistance. It
was exceptionally challenging, but his positive thinking and desire to support his family, encouraged him to continue his business venture.

In 1989 his son, Gregory Barnes, a Boilermaker at the time, decided to join him. This has significantly contributed to the success
of PJ Bookbinders.

Gregory & Juanita Barnes, a phenomenal husband and wife team, have built the business into what it is today, thus, having the privilege of owning PJ Bookbinders Cape Town for the past 30 years.


PJ Bookbinders Cape Town has survived financial hardship, however, despite being disadvantaged, the business has
steadily grown over the past few years as a result of passion, perseverance and motivation to offer the best bookbinding & finishing
services in South Africa. 

All the machinery, equipment and premises belonging to P.J Bookbinders Cape Town have been acquired through hard work, tenacity
and courage. 

At PJ Bookbinders Cape Town, we look after our customers and our staff. With our customers always being our main priority, we aim to provide the best services at reasonable prices and we do it with a SMILE.

Finally, after 30 years of hard work, we received the opportunity to build a workshop at 322 Ottery Road, Ottery. We moved into the premises in November 2016 where we now offer fully functional bookbinding, printing and finishing services.

Furthermore, we would love to hear from you and help you with any bookbinding or printing requirement.
