Our story

For over 35 years, we provide printed matter in all kinds of variants. From theses, to magazines, almanacs and lesson materials. Always with a lot of fun and passion. How Gildeprint has started, you can read below.

Start of Febodruk

Next to his job as professor at the University of Twente, Ap Hendriks is responsible for the printing of post-graduate education printing matter. Through this way he came in contact with the printing industry. In the summer of 1980, Ap decides to start for himself. With a company named Febodruk. He becomes a real entrepreneur and in a short period Febodruk becomes a well known company in the region.

Moving from the Blekerstraat to the Javastraat

The building on the Blekerstraat, in the city centre of Enschede, soon became too small for Febodruk. There came a possibility to get a bigger building at the Javastraat. In this building is enough space for the machines, printing presses and there is room for an office.

Takeover Peter Hendriks

Because of health problems, Ap Hendriks transfers his company to his son, Peter Hendriks. Peter, at the time 21 years old, is waiting a great challenge. Full of enthusiasm he enters the company and has great plans.

Febodruk becomes Gildeprint

What do you think? Does Febodruk reminds you of the famous Dutch snack chain? This is the reason Peter changed the name into Gildeprint. The name Gildeprint represents 'Gilde', which means 'an association of colleagues' (Van Dale) and of course what we do: printing.

Planting trees

Ilse Schrauwers, the graphic designer we work together with, has the dream to inspire the graphic sector to plant more trees. And thereby making the world greener. We think it’s a fantastic idea.

We plant one three per thesis order. Nice to know is that you can ensure that more than one tree is planted. In case you let us make the design for the cover and inside of your thesis as well, we will plant three trees.
