In 1901, the Federated Malay States Government Printing Office was moved to Brickfields where it handled printing needs for Perak, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan and Pahang.

In 1941, Federated Malay States Government built a printing office in Jalan Chan Sow Lin, what is now the headquarters of PNMB.

In 1967, in line with the Malaysia Government policy, the Government Printing Department was renamed to Jabatan Cetak Kerajaan.

In 1977, Jabatan Cetak Kerajaan was placed under the purview of the Ministry of Local and Federal Government. It was renamed Jabatan Percetakan Negara in 1979.

Jabatan Percetakan Negara was corporatised on 1 January 1993 and renamed Percetakan Nasional Malaysia Berhad (PNMB). It was a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Minister of Finance Inc (MoF) and became an agency under the Kementerian Dalam Negeri (KDN).

In 2017, PNMB was privatised when the sale of PNMB was finalised by the Ministry of Finance Inc.

Today, PNMB has a network of 10 branches in Alor Setar, Bukit Mertajam, Ipoh, Johor Bahru, Kota Bahru, Kota Kinabalu, Kuantan, Kuala Terengganu, Kuching, and Ayer Keroh.
