We sell our products online and in store throughout North and South America, Europe and as far as Australia.

We are delighted to offer our customers exceptional trend and design. We have number one market share in many of our businesses and are able to provide our customers with a broad range of products at an exceptional value.

We are proud of our heritage, with a history spanning back more than 100 years, our story can be traced back to Hysil Manufacturing Company, who pioneered the gift wrap industry. Since then, we have grown organically and through acquisition to become a leader in the categories we sell in and have adapted to succeed in the rapidly changing retail climate.
