In 1913 Nils Stabenfeldt establishes a small printing house in Stavanger, Norway, printing labels for sardine tins. Some years later he came up with the idea of printing and publishing books, in order to fill the free capacity of the printing machines.
In the 1950ies the comic series market opens up, and Stabenfeldt publishes in total 74 different comic series titles throughout the next 47 years.
In 1982 Stabenfeldt discovers horses! Penny, a comic magazine based on girls and horses is launched, and Pennyklubben follows shortly after. Both concepts are instant successes.
Some years later, Boing, a comic magazine for boys interested in football, is born. And in 1985 the Boing club is launched.
In 1987 TL klubben is established for girls aged 9-16, with a keen interest in reading entertaining fiction books.
In the 1990ies Stabenfeldt goes international! Pennyklubben and TL klubben is launched in Sweden, and later we also launch Pennyklubben in Germany and Finland.
In 2011, TL klubben changed profile and name to GIRL:IT.
In 2012, Pennyklubben changed profile and name to PennyGirl.
