Do you feel that gift wrapping is an art? I do! I love to gift wrap, and am always looking for that bit of flair to finish off a gift. I am also obsessed with vintage paper!! This lovely sheet is from 1978, and it is in great vintage shape!

Lovely soft colors of the era. A retrospective, whimsical take on a wedding day.

Some history on American Greetings:

For more than 100 years, American Greetings Corporation has been a manufacturer and retailer of innovative social expression products that assist consumers in enhancing their relationships.

The company's major greeting card brands are American Greetings, Carlton Cards, Gibson, Recycled Paper Greetings, and Papyrus, and other paper product offerings include DesignWare party goods, American Greetings and Plus Mark gift-wrap and boxed cards and Date Works calendars.

While today, the company helps millions of people worldwide stay connected and celebrate life's special occasions, it all started with $50 and the dreams of one determined young man.

Big dreams, humble beginnings

The success of American Greetings Corporation began in the heart of Jacob Sapirstein, a young Polish immigrant. Jacob believed that with ambition, ethics and hard work, anyone could achieve the American dream.

Shortly after his arrival in America in 1905, Jacob moved to Cleveland, Ohio, and became a jobber of post cards - a popular item of the times - buying the cards from German manufacturers and selling them to local merchants.

To start his business, Jacob borrowed $50 from a local bank to buy a supply of penny postcards, which he sold to drug stores, novelty shops and confectioners. By the end of the first week, he had sold enough cards to repay the loan, and had an extra $50 to fund the following week's business. The most popular designs in his early product line expressed feelings using rhymed verses and flowery Victorian artwork.

Jacob and his wife had four children: sons, Irving, Morris, and Harry; and daughter Bernice. Before long, the Sapirstein Greeting Card Company became a family operation. The children helped their father organize inventory, stuff fancy postcards into envelopes and make deliveries to accounts in the family's horse-drawn cart.
