Sandlapper Publishing Company was established in 1983 by Frank N. Handal (1931-2004).   Mr. Handal purchased the book publishing division of the Sandlapper Magazine of Lexington, South Carolina and began his company in Orangeburg, South Carolina.  Mr. Handal published books about South Carolina and added other publishers books to his list to create a central source of distribution. In 1997, the company was sold to Christian and Amanda Gallman of Orangeburg, South Carolina.
