Welcome to Schoening-Verlag, based in Luebeck. We are one of the top tourism publishers in Germany, offering the specialist trade a comprehensive range of picture postcards, travel literature, calendars and local souvenirs.
Since our founding as a publishing house in 1919, we have served many German tourist locations, from Sylt to the Alps, from Aachen to Zwiesel. Our medium-sized company still designs and prints picture postcards.
In the 1980s and 1990s, we branched out into new product sectors: brochures, picture calendars, travel guides and from 2000 also souvenirs. With the switch to digital photography and printing technology, we have recently also been able to produce cards, souvenirs or calendars with customers’ own photos or image data simply and in small print runs.
Our sales structure has developed from the sale of picture postcards, and its form has remained up to the present day: we sell most of our approx. 30,000 articles directly at the relevant locations via 16 field service employees, who regularly visit our customers, from kiosk owner to supply chains. For some years now, we have successfully offered the Schoening Online-Shop.
Apart from our publishing house products, we also offer a print service. For the make-to-order production of cards, brochures or calendars in top quality, you can choose your favourites from all Schöning formats, qualities and bindings. You can yourself compile a selection from our archives with 100,000 pictures or send in your own photos so that we can design the product to meet your requirements. Our customers include leisure parks, clinics offering health cures, hotels and cultural institutions, for which we have produced for many years. Get in touch with our contact person in the production department and request an offer.
Photographs form the basis of our publishing work. We are in constant contact with many professional photographers, with whom we have been connected for years. We have the great advantage of being able to access photos directly and at short notice via a closely-knit network of contacts throughout Germany. If, for instance, a town hall has been newly painted or a church restored, our specialists on the spot already have that in focus and can provide us with up-to-the-minute shots.
