Business Description

John Kemp is an embroidery and print business.  Established as a drapers shop in 1908 it was in the Kemp family for over 90 years spanning three generations. Today it is still a family run business, owned by Mary Laird and managed by daughter Karen.

We supply a wide range of workwear to businesses which we personalise with embroidery or printing to promote their business.

Sports Clubs and Teams also look to have their own identity on sportswear and we are the sole supplier of Orkney Rugby Club garments for both players and supporters.

In the past few years we have developed our printing business and now provide a wide range of goods for tourists and locals alike. We have a number of exclusive Orkney T shirt prints and are happy to personalise them further for that special souvenir.

Our range of baby gifts has increased and again that new baby gift is all the more special with a name embroidered or printed on it. Beautiful towels and blankets as well as a range of colours in sleepsuits and vests. We are also the exclusive local stockist of Sophie la Girafe, a first sensory development toy for baby.

Another popular print is the Stag and Hen party t shirts – personalised to the theme of the night!

Personalised Bunting, Cushions, Placemats and coasters are new and popular for gifts, birthday parties and weddings. Bring along your own pictures or choose from a wide range in shop.
