)-- Did Hallmark Invent Gift Wrap? No, although often credited with inventing gift wrap, Rollie Hall of the Hallmark Brothers was not the first person to think of ‘dressing a gift’, as it was called in 1917. While most people were using cloth or tissue paper Rollie Hall started selling decorative papers from his stationary store one Christmas when he had run out of the traditional red and green tissue. All he had in inventory was imported paper from France that had been intended as envelope linings. As J.C. Hall stated “The decorative gift-wrapping business was born the day Rollie placed those French envelope linings on top of that showcase.”
Now in the 21st century decorative gift wrapping has expanded to immense proportions. There are all types from eco-friendly, re-useable, double-sided, bags, boxes and the list goes on. Here to showcase the finest offerings in gift wrapping from around the world is Artistry Gift Wrap. Announcing the launch of their e-commerce site, owner Melissa Ewing says “I am excited about our new website and I think this will be an immensely useful service in today’s fast-paced world.”
