Designer Greetings, Inc. Announces New Acquisitions

Designer Greetings, Inc., one of the largest greeting card companies in the United States, announced that it has acquired Red Farm Studio from Quadriga Art LLC and Glitterwrap, Inc.

Red Farm Studio has been recognized for its niche in the gift and stationery industry in nautical/coastal card and paper products for over 50 years, with the relationship between Designer Greetings and Quadriga Art, a 70-year old multi-faceted, full-service fundraising and direct mail marketing company, extending back decades.

"The fine reputation of Red Farm Studio and its specialty product are highly synergistic with Designer Greetings and our extensive offerings," said Steven Gimbelman, president of Designer Greetings. "We look forward to providing top-notch product and service to our Designer Greetings customers and new and existing Red Farm Studio customers via our combined sales representatives."

Glitterwrap, Inc., a manufacturer of high design gift bags and wrap, via the U.S. subsidiary of International Greetings PLC, has been one of the world's largest manufacturers of paper and stationery products. Similar in history, Designer Greetings and Glitterwrap have both been family-owned companies, as well as operated by brother and sister.

"We are excited about the opportunity to combine the fine and extensive Glitterwrap and Festive gift wrap offerings with our outstanding Designer Greetings reputation for service and turnaround time," Gimbelman said.
