Have you met Pandi? For that matter, what's a Pandi?

Have you ever wondered why our company is named Pandi Press? Well, I'll tell you why...


How did Pandi Press get its name?

Now, you might be wondering, what in the world does "Pandi" actually mean? Is it a secret code? A hidden message? Nope, it's just a fun combination of words that stuck. "Pandi" doesn't have a specific meaning, but it sure does make you smile when you say it out loud!

So picture this: a father and a daughter, sitting around a table, brainstorming ideas for what to do with the father's substantial backlist of publishing. They wanted a name that was catchy, memorable, and a little bit quirky. Mostly though, they thought it would be cute to take the nickname the father had for the daughter, Panda, and use that as the springboard for the name. Somehow, it became Pandi, which would insinuate multiples, and the rest is history. 

Why stick with such a unique name?

Some might say that choosing a name like Pandi Press is risky. After all, it's not your typical, serious-sounding business name. But that's exactly why we loved it! We wanted a name that would stand out, make people curious, and reflect the fun-loving spirit of the company.

So, the next time you see the name "Pandi Press" on a business card or website, remember that behind that quirky name is a team of passionate individuals who aren't afraid to be a little different. And hey, who doesn't love a logo created by the talented artist, Timothy Truman?


Word on the street?

A Pandi is a mythical creature that dwells in the darkness where they read book after book. Typically docile unless provoked, we suggest you proceed with caution, and expect the unexpected.


There, that cleared it all up, right?
