Powis is the brainchild of founder Kevin Parker, a true inventor at heart. Kevin has spent 30+ years experimenting and researching, all with the goal of bringing beautiful, intuitive products to the market.

He began bookbinding at the age of twelve upon discovering an antique cast-iron bookbinding press in the basement of his parents’ house. While attending high school, Kevin handcrafted and bound portfolios for artists who worked with Crown Point Press. These early experiences taught him a deep appreciation for authentic relationships and quality presentation. He officially launched Powis Parker in 1983, while attending the University of California at Berkeley.

Today, Powis Parker employs over 100 people. Powis serves the on-demand bookbinding market through a network of 200 dealers and distributors around the world. We've also applied our inventive processes to eco-conscious, user experience consumer products for the tech industry. This began with the design of an iPad case with 9 different positions. Powis soon branched into iPhone wallets and have wholeheartedly embraced the Virtual Reality movement with Google Cardboard.
