Design Group Americas is the world’s largest gift packaging company, producing paper, décor, creative play and dated good products for millions of customers throughout the United States and beyond. With a history spanning back more than 100 years, Design Group Americas’ story can be traced back to Hysil manufacturing, who pioneered the gift wrap industry.
Since then, our business has continued to grow both organically and through strategic acquisitions, welcoming The Gift Wrap Company, Lang, APP and, most recently, Impact Innovations to the Design Group Americas family.
Our locations in Atlanta, Savannah, Boston, Waukesha, Miami, Memphis, Clara City and Minneapolis provide state-of-the-art studios and manufacturing facilities.
We produce gift packaging, boxed and single greeting cards, gift bags, gift tags, stationery, bows and accessories. With two company-owned factories in China and over 50 sourcing experts in Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Ningbo and Shanghai, we are versatile to new manufacturing techniques and offer the latest in paper and product innovation across the paper category. We also continue to explore manufacturing capabilities globally. This will help us to build on our leadership position as a low-cost manufacturer. As we move into India, Taiwan, Indonesia, and Mexico plus other countries we have worked to grow our share in the value, mass, upscale, and speciality channels.
With strong retailer relationships, our aim is to drive profitable growth through exceptional customer service, industry-leading innovation, and great value. Our strengths in product innovation and design, combined with low-cost manufacturing, sourcing and logistics, enable us to sustain and develop excellent partnerships with major retailers throughout the world.
We are proud of the support facilities we have developed, efficient administrative procedures, vast warehousing facilities, rapid response to customer requirements and a sales force which is sensitive to and focused on their needs. We are the largest manufacturer in the market space adjacent to everyday single cards. We intend to continue to aggressively consolidate that space.
