About Us

Pelican Publishers Limited is a modern, vanity publishing house which offers four main services namely:

Publishing

Our publishing services encapsulate all the processes involved in converting a manuscript- and sometimes even just an idea, into a book. These include editing, proofreading, design and layout and cover design, etc.

Publishing, however, is not an end in itself and the consumerable products are books and magazines of which we have. (Yearbooks and annual reports are to be added as of 2016). Our books which are diverse, interesting and well written are by authors of repute and authenticity in the subject areas they write on. To date, we have mainly focused on our niche area of ‘wellness publishing’ but we have been expanding to include educational, children and specialty publications such as cook books.

Graphic Design
