The Story of Rose Publishing

Rose Publishing was started by a Sunday school teacher and a public school teacher in 1991. The mother-daughter team realized there were very few good Bible charts, time lines, and maps on the market for their classes and began creating their own. Other teachers started asking for the charts and the company was born.

From those few charts locally, to thousands of loyal customers worldwide today, Rose Publishing is the only Christian publisher that specializes in graphics-rich products. Rose has become known for providing quality products developed by expert authors, including professors and consultants from evangelical Christian colleges and seminaries. The management team and sales staff is made of up industry professionals with years of experience.
