International Cards & Gifts Ltd was formed by two brothers, Ian and Simon Wagstaff, in 2004. Between them they have over 30 years experience in the Greeting Card industry and play a big part in the running of the company today.
They started the business as an offshoot from their father Clive Wagstaff, who ran a successful Publishing Company supplying Greeting Cards into the network of Christian Bookshops throughout the U.K. With a huge amount of knowledge in dealing with Christian Bookshops, Ian and Simon decided to transfer their skills and bring them into the mainstream retail sector of the UK.
After years of hard work and determination they are recognised as one of the fastest growing UK greeting cards publishers in the industry, and have now become both a friend of the independent retailer and a well-known, trusted supplier of greeting cards, not just in the UK but all over the world. From innovation to in-house manufacturing in Dorset, IC&G have the capabilities of getting products to market in a very short space of time, delivering within 24 hours!
IC&G are proud to be recognised for their quality, service and fantastic prices. They are now recognised as being highly awarded for Customer Service in the industry - as voted for by customers in the Henries awards.
The company were delighted to have won the Gold Henries Award for 'Best Service to the Independent Retailer' in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021.. with Silver wins in 2015 and 2022, and Bronze in 2014. Understandably it is an achievement that we are very proud of!
