TJ International Ltd


Privately owned Book Manufacturer producing around 6m books a year for a broad base of blue-chip publishing clients. Based in Padstow, Cornwall for over 40 years employing 135 people. Through an ongoing programme of investment in both people and machinery, the company provides publishers with a full lifecycle offering, from digital POD through to long run litho print runs.


Established as a London-based commercial printing business in 1970 by Tom Jaques, TJ soon relocated to Cornwall to establish a bindery to continue to develop its enduring association with Large Print books. Owned for many years by the Ulverscroft Large Print Publishing Group, the current directors completed a management buy-out in 2004, retaining ULPB as a key client.
