About the Company

The story of Picfare, now proud to be Uganda’s largest printed paper-products solutions provider began in 1981 in a small premise in 2nd Street, Kampala. By 1992, we began producing exercise books and catering to the import substitution in local markets. After learning the importance of education in Uganda, and acquiring Nytil, we moved to Njeru, Jinja to expand our capacity and consolidate synergy.

And now… We are on a rigorous development track - increasing our product range, by the day. We have ventured into the printing business - commercial and security - and have appeared as the first government approved “Security Printing Company”.

We have developed our own design studio with a highly qualified team. Today our products are not only available across the country but also cater to neighboring countries.

To serve our growing clientele needs, we have acquired a state-of-the-art Flexo printing press which has expanded our printing capabilities to labels.
