Our Story

Our changing identity

Our business began in 1979, designing, manufacturing and supplying gift wrap for retail and wholesale customers, under the name Scandinavian Design.

After rapid growth, in 1989 we rebranded as International Greetings– reflecting our evolution into an international business.

Since then, more growth and evolution has complicated our corporate structure. So now we have decided to simplify our branding: to make ourselves more coherent to our customers, suppliers, investors and our own team, and to help us communicate more effectively with them all.



We design, manufacture, source and distribute a wide array of products for life’s important occasions, which help to transform moments into memories.
