- About Us
Fravessi and Paper Street
Fravessi Greetings was founded in the late 1920s by entrepreneurial woman Essie Govett and later became Fravessi Lamont with Jean Lamont Woodland. Fravessi was purchased in the late 1990s by Olympia Sales Inc., a greeting card company founded in 1966 by Arthur O'Hara. Today, Shade Tree Greetings continues the tradition of value priced, full caption line of wholesale greeting cards for retailers of all sizes.
Paper Street was created in 2005 to offer a delightful variety of cards designed especially for today's card buyers. Paper Street is a high-end line of greeting cards featuring collections that are designed by well known American artists. Paper Street's unique collection of greeting cards features imaginative images, engaging sentiments, quirky humor, and inspiring quotes.
