Editorial Navarrete S.R.L. was first established on the 12th of August, 1976. Initially a very small printing company with its main office at Av. Carretera Central 759, Km 2, Santa Anita Lima, Peru. During the 1980’s as the company began to expand, they published a multitude of sticker/trading card albums. The album topics focused on history, education, religion as well as TV and comic related subjects. Today, under new management, the company has flourished and now with two locations offers a very wide range of paper products and school supplies.
