Our Art / Valentine & Sons

Valentine & Sons

In 1851, James Valentine founded a printing company in Scotland naming it Valentine & Sons, working closely with his family. The company grew to become Scotland's leading manufacturer of picture postcards. The company sold photographs of far-off places, from Jamaica to New Zealand, to European armchair travelers. The company was purchased by a leading publisher of card and board games in the United Kingdom, who sold it in turn to Hallmark Cards in 1980.
