Our mission statement:
"Our goal is to put all that we’ve learnt into offering traditional British manufacturing to the world.
We will showcase our brand to the best of our ability to attract a global audience, to whom we will offer outstanding customer care and an honest service.
We endeavour to provide high quality artists materials and a plethora of choice through a range that is unrivalled by our competitors."
Pink Pig was created in 1992, a family run business with the aim to supply students with high quality drawing books, unlike any others available on the market!
Nick Wilson our Managing Director, understood the importance of high quality paper and the needs of artists and art students from his background in art, design and print-making.
Now, our team and Nick still hold the same vision 25 years on.
All our handmade covers are made by us in Yorkshire, England. We use the best quality acid free paper available, source sustainably or recycled where possible, deliver quickly and offer seemingly endless permutations. We’re confident in saying we have the world’s largest range of colours, cover designs, sizes & formats unmatched by any of our competitors.
We have increased our growth with many new developments online, using large marketing platforms, reaching out to new market sectors. We are also honoured to be seen on Hochanda TV our regular TV feature! To meet demand we now occupy a larger premises to fulfil consumer needs. Still located in the heart of Yorkshire, all our staff now work very closely under one roof as the sole manufacturers of our little piggies. With this move came new machinery, a large factory space and brand new offices. We also recruited additional members of staff and added 3 new advisories to our board of directors.
“I personally, am proud of what we have achieved, built and continue to maintain. From what started in a small terraced house, which we quickly outgrew, to now, a multi-channel global business. I am honoured to be involved with such a dedicated team of staff” – Nick Wilson, Chief Pig.
Nick is still very much involved in the day to day running of the business, just like he has been for the past 25 years. We think that this has been instrumental to the ethos of our business and what has kept us so true to our original values for so many years.
Our goal now is to put all that we’ve learnt into offering traditional British manufacturing to the world in the form of sketchbooks, notebooks, scrapbooks and watercolour books lovingly made by hand in England.
