At Home with Hirsch’s

“The Famous Publishing team have published the At Home with Hirsch’s magazine for the last 12 years. Initially an annual publication, we are now producing the magazine bi-annually due to high demand. As the editor, I have worked closely with the team at Famous Publishing and regard them extremely highly for their work ethic and total professionalism. The magazine is extremely popular – a credit to the team for always producing work of an exceptional quality.”
– Editor: Glenda Thompson

Old Town

“Famous Publishing has assisted our company, Rembrothers (Pty) Ltd, over the past few years in a number of branding and marketing campaigns. The articles that have been written and published by Famous Publishing have aided in promoting our hospitality group products and brands within the market place.
The Christmas Edition Newspaper that Famous Publishing produced for our Old Town Italy brand was hugely successful and we had fantastic feedback from our customers and advertisers.
Famous Publishing are professionals in their field and have a true understanding of our needs and brands.
It is always a pleasure to work on exciting projects with them, and I look forward to possibly doing another Old Town newspaper again this year.”

Travels in the South

“I used the services of Famous Publishing to produce Travels in the South – a history of South African roads. I was very pleased with the service I received – they provided professional and efficient editing and proofreading services, with strong capabilities in picture editing and sourcing. Page layouts were creative and on brief, and the books were completed and printed on time. I would be happy to use their services again.”
