A recent note to our president:
My order arrived yesterday and I am SO pleased with it and the swift service I received. I ordered the bird stickers and the paris labels with the dogs and cats on them.
Both are delightful and although at first I couldn't see why I should order a three-pack, I am so glad I did because now I can have a "stash" of these goodies at work to use as needed, and have some at home, too. The paper, printing and packaging is also super.
Thanks and happy holidays!
We were a little nervous about how you would like our three-per-pack packaging for some smaller formats. So thanks for feedback!
I just wanted to check & see if you still have the Edward Hopper sea side note cards. I believe it had 4 different designs, all with lighthouses or boats. They were beautiful & I'd love to get a set of the cards.
We're sorry, but our Edward Hopper cards are out of print. You might like the seaside scenes in our American Impressionists Seaside Holiday box of cards.
Painting outdoors like their French Impressionist counterparts, Frank W. Benson, Edward Potthast, and William Glackens captured cheerful scenes of families enjoying a seaside holiday.
I recently bought several of your puzzles for my two and a half year daughter. Specifically, four 2 sided puzzles and a first puzzles set.
All of them have been a big hit with my daughter and she spends a good amount of time everyday playing with them. We love the large pieces and the artwork. With the 2-sided ones she loves to complete one side, flip it over and look at the other side....
...I had beeen looking for beginner puzzles for my daughter for a few months now and wasn't having much success finding any....
....I will definitely be checking your website for new products and have also signed up for your mailing list.
I have been trying to locate an Internet Organizer for a very dear friend who has recently purchased her first computer; she is 81 years old and would like to have an alphabetized book to keep her friends’ email addresses in, that looks like mine, given to me in 2000 or 2001 and it is one of the most important books that I own.
I want to purchase the Write On! Journals that include eight grid-lined pages located in the back of the journal. I have used these journals since 2005, and am addicted. The bookstore in which I purchase these from no longer carry this particular style
and I’ve not found them on the Galison website. I hope they are still available. I will purchase several. Can you provide these journals or direct me to a source?
I just completed an order with you a week ago. I usually order from you once a year as I like the quality of your products. I was disappointed this year not to find the small notebook (about 5.25 x 3.5) I found it so handy and the bright colors (this year was brown background with vari-colored polkadots, the year before colored stripes, and the year before that, red with a kitty on front cover), that made them so easy to find in my cluttered office. I also liked the elastic band that kept it neat.
I did order notebooks again this year but they were either smaller or larger than the one I really liked. Did you discontinue that size or did I not look hard enough?
Editor's note: Sorry, but the small Write On Journal format you have been purchasing in the past has indeed been discontinued. I've passed your comments along to our editorial/creative team.
I love your [Our World] world puzzle but you need to fix a major mistake. There are not penguins in the north pole. It is impossible for a penguin to survive with polar bears and other predators. Please fix the mistake so I can buy the puzzle and recommended to others.
Great product but big mistake.
Thanks for your note. We're glad you like our Mudppupy Our World floor puzzle. It's not a mistake, though! What you are looking at as Greenland, and the bird shown is a puffin. You're right that there would not be penguins there, but puffins nest on the coasts of Russia, Iceland, Norway, Greenland, and even Maine!
i just wanted to tell you how amazing and wonderfull all of your designs are! i love art and designs adn to look through your site makes me so happy! Your weekly organizers are so perfect for writing down my home work!! they r so pretty and cute!! Thank you for not making me buy any ugly assignment book for school!
I just want to comment that I love the new Galison 1000 piece puzzles.
I just bought one from Exclusive Books today, the Van Gogh one. Are you going to make any other artists or pictures? And is your old range of 1000 piece discontinued.
Thanks for your note. Yes, we have 1000 piece Galison puzzles that use images by artists other than Van Gogh, including Monet, Renoir, and Andy Warhol. The rectangular box, which includes an insert sheet with information about the artist and the image, is our only current format for 1000 piece puzzles.
Readers in the United States and Canada may order these on this website. International fans: please ask your local store to stock Galison/Mudpuppy! Please have a look!
A note from a Galison/Mudpuppy e-newsletter subscriber:
JUST LOVE YOUR STATIONARY AND PADS, AND STICKY NOTES, ETC. I JUST CONFIRMED THAT I WANT TO STAY ON YOUR EMAIL LIST.
IT'S NICE TO SEE A COMPANY WHO STILL BELIEVES IN REAL-MAIL!! OH, AND YOU ARE A GREAT SOURCE FOR GIFTS, TOO!

We received a letter from a group of friends who assembled a Galison jigsaw puzzle based on Francine Barkan's "Red Paisley" painting:
Being very methodical and experience 'puzzlers" we began with the borders, working from the edges on it...It took us three days. It was a very challenging puzzle! But we enjoyed it so much and everyone loved the painting...Couldn't bear to break it up! Thanks for the pleasure it gave us all.
Alas, that particular puzzle is now out of print, but we really appreciate hearing how much people love this cheerful, colorful painting. Other puzzle fans: Please have a look at our Galison 1000 Piece Puzzles.
I have noticed the William Morris Clover Pretty File Tote is not available on your website or any other internet retailer. Will this item be available again soon? It is one of my favorite home office accessories, and I will be crushed if I cannot get more.
Sorry, but the William Morris Clover File Totes have gone out of print. We have replaced them with a different William Morris pattern, Morning Garden.
I picked up one of your Modern Geometry Mini Journals--and now I'm hooked. It's the best little journal I've found yet (I love that the pages easily detach, that the notebook fully opens, and that the elastic keeps it properly closed). ...Before I order more: Are the pages graph-lined as mine is?
Thanks--we're glad you like the mini journals so much. In answer to the graph paper question: in each design, 144 pages are lined, and 16 are graph. Currently we have about twenty different designs from cute cats through classic William Morris patterns, Monet Waterlilies, Andy Warhol...
I am a newly-made mudpuppy fan. I got several things for my daughter this last year and they were gorgeous and she played with them for a long time. Thank you so much! I appreciate your company even more now :)
No problem, just want to inform you how pleased I was with my order. So well made, beautiful. Had to sit right down and make another order, went through my list and of course had to have some for myself!!! And the shipping, they were here so quickly. Keep up the good work, I will be passing your website on to others. Happy Holidays!
I brought my kids a robot card making kit and it was a big hit. Every birthday they went to, they would make a beautiful card. Do you still make these kits? It was boxed so beautifully.
It's great to hear that you and your creative kids make your own birthday cards with the Mudpuppy Create a Card sets. The Robots were my favorite, too. Unfortunately, these sets have been discontinued and are now all out of print. I miss them, too!
I was thrilled to get your email back!! Recently I was sent a cute card from a girlfriend and on the back of the card I saw the brand galison, so being a lover of cards and sending cards I decided to google this brand and came across your website which then made me become more in awe of your designs!!! I live in a country town and don't have any stores that supply these types of cards.
I have not visited your site for awhile till today, and it seems you have had a major shift in design emphasis on your wonderful products. I loved the note cards with gorgeous and elegant seasonal designs. Now it appears that most of your designs have grown "cute," if you know what I mean.
Is there a chance you might being back some of the more graceful and grown-up designs, such as "Seasons of the North," maybe for Christmas? (I am not much of a fan of the famous artists' designs, such as Van Gogh.)
Editor's note: We are sorry our customer hadn't checked in with us recently, but are glad she returned.
Yes, our designs have gotten trendier and less traditional, and we are correcting the imbalance. As one example, our next collection of new products will offer a truly beautiful set of journals, cards, and stationery based on William Morris designs from the Victoria and Albert Museum.
We are looking forward to receiving our recent order. 12 years ago we were given a beautiful guest book as a wedding present. It may well be our most cherished gift - we travel a lot within the US and internationally, have set up various homes and this book is one that is always with us. It helps us stay connected with friends and remember precious times with very interesting people.
I sought books for a wedding gift and a housewarming gift. Barnes and Nobles, Borders, and Hallmark had nothing that I wanted. You did. Ours came from your company and that's how we found you...
I am very new to your products (just started using them this past weekend) and absolutely love them. They are gorgeous and perfect for my son, who is now 2.
I see you've just added a whole new bunch of products to your website, so will have fun window shopping.
I bought the Horse Ranch Mini Play sticker set for my son and he loves it. I don't give him any of the big stickers and am with him when he uses it. It kept him happily occupied in church on Easter ...
Finally, I also bought the large zoo sticker set and like it as well. However, I was a bit disappointed that there were already animals preprinted in the various zoo enclosures. That really limits a child's creativity since you are basically told where all the animals go. I think it would be more fun to have no animals on the board and let the children put the giraffes wherever they wanted, for example.
Anyway, you've got lots of fabulous products. The dinosaur 24-piece puzzle was also a huge hit this weekend. Keep up the good work!
Received [my order] today. Thank you. Love your designs, they are so cheerful. Did miss seeing "Poppies" as I received "Poppies" note cards for Christmas present and wanted to purchase a box for someone. Let me know if it becomes available.
Just bought my first Galison products today and love them. My home office has a jungle theme and I'm wondering if you've considered animal prints for the file totes and folders. I'd love something in cheetah or leopard, perhaps zebra & giraffe as well.
I just wanted to let you know that I love your stationery. I heard about you as my college roommate lives in NYC and she sent me an "owl" christmas card which was so cute, I saw the name on the back and went to my computer.
I just wanted to let you know that I love your stationery. It's so cute. My mom got it for me for Christmas and it comes in handy for my letters....I live at a boarding school, so I do a lot of letter writing. I am always getting compliments on my stationery , and how pretty it is.
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your quick turnaround getting orders out the door. So critical this time of year and surprising that other companies don't realize how much more can be sold just by getting the orders out. Go figure! Your efficiency and organization is commendable!
What's happened to the Write On journals? You used to offer a beautiful selection, including Waterlilies, Van Gogh, and other art- inspired covers. Now there are only chocolate dots. I hope you're not planning to discontinue this line; I've been using these journals for years. They're lightweight, have narrow ruled lines, and are aesthetically pleasing. Plus, they're very popular in the where I live; I know many writers who use them.
Please continue to offer these journals -- they're an excellent alternative for those of us who don't care for Moleskines.
Editor's note: Sorry, but the Write On Journal format has indeed been discontinued. I've passed your comments along to our editorial/creative team. In the meantime, please have a look at our replacement journal:
I was delighted to find your website, where I will be able to purchase some of your other beautiful products right from the comfort of my home. I am on my annual search to find a "Mother and Child" aka a "Madonna" Christmas card. I will need lots of time and luck, as they are slowly but surely not featured, as once they were.
Your company's products are lovely, and your customer service is sincerely appreciated.
I recently received the order I placed with Galison and I am very pleased with all the items I ordered. This is my second order, I believe, from Galison, and the rpoducts are all that I expected. I particulary like the items from the William Morris collections, but I have ordered from other collections and been very pleased.
Hi - Where can I find a store that sells the mini journals with the elastic band in Wisconsin, specifically the Milwaukee area? I have one and want to get another one and don't remember where I bought it. They are fantastic for purses. I never leave home without it in my purse.
I bought the Monsters! puzzle designed by Micheal Slack/Mudpuppy. My son and I have completed the puzzle and have mourned the fact that there is no poster included of this enchanting picture!!! Is there any way I can get my claws on a print or poster of this?
I fell in love with your file totes at a trade show. Showroom. I work at (a small New York book publisher) Do you know where in New York, preferably near SOHO I might be able to buy some of your file totes and
coordinating file folders? I simple must have them, they are so cute!
From the Texas city that everyone wants to keep weird*:
Hi. I received your folders and your really fun monster stickers today, and I LOVE THEM. Of course, I had the robot folders before, so I knew I wanted more. I'll be ordering more as funds become available because I am hopelessly in love with them and want to stock my office with them. As to the monster stickers: GOOD WORK. They're fantastic, fabulous, and funny.
As to your product line, I suggest expanding into rubber stamps and making some of your designs available in that form. Most of the rubber stamps in the American market are very sweetie-pie, yuck. Your work has genuine wit. A few robot stamps and definitely some monster stamps would sell well with the juvenile crowd and also with adults who collect such things.
You go. You're terrific. I'll be buying more. I'd buy from a local retailer if they kept your stuff stocked -- but I tracked you down from the name on the back of the folder. I wish you every success.
I just went to write this into my notebook and turned it over and saw it was a Galison book! I assume this is your firm that makes my wonderful polka-dotted scratch pad? Thank you for keeping me organized!
I have bought your product here, but cannot get the beautiful thank you cards.
A thank you from the National Trust, Australia:
This is to thank you for the great service you gave to us in creating the portfolio cards, "Visions of Port Phillip."
From beginning to end you managed to combine creativity with a professional approach to achieve what we consider to be an outstanding result in Box 4 Folder. Also thanks for your recommendations for the best design re marketing.
Will said I would hear from you when the proofs come in. He is interested in doing more cards.
No reply expected, have a nice weekend.
I have one of your exquisite National Art Gallery address books, spiral bound with cloth spine, published in 1993. I understand that this publication has been discontinued. Online estimates for the current value range from CAD $15 to $108.
I just wanted pass along a thanks and tell you I am very pleased with my transaction with Galison/Mudpuppy. I used a William Morris note card by Galison for our wedding announcements. I bought them originally at Anthropologie, and I bought too few. I was able to make up for it quickly and affordably directly from Galison/Mudpuppy! That took a big load off my mind! Thanks! Your staff does a great job!
I am a UK based company and I love your stuff! I would like to order a few
of the to do memo mouse pads for our office in the UK, could you let me know
if this is possible and how much it would be?
I would like to congratulate you because of the great products you have in this site.
I live in Mexico and I am interested to order the following products.
December 12, 2008.
I bought one of your beautiful sticky notes pads in Fortum and Masons in London and wanted to know more about your products, I love them!
Thank you for your prompt reply. I enjoy your web site.
I appreciate your help so much at this time of the year despite of our small order....embarrassing. A person like you, I believe, make the world nice.
“I just used Google to search for stationary and up ye came. You have some very lovely things very different to what’s offered here.”
- Also, a well wishing from a UK customer –
“p.s. congratulations on your new President!”
“I bought one of these items in Fornum & Mason's in London and loved it and want to buy some for Christmas presents for family and friends and search Google for you.”
So cold in Ireland…

Thank you very much! We love your products and so do my customers!! I appreciate the excellent service.

Hi there! We love your cards! We were wondering if you could send us a list of best-sellers. We like everything and we are having a hard time making up our minds! We manage the Art Center Gift Shop here in Sioux City, IA.
Thanks a lot-

I just wanted to let you know that I have had your "Redoute" Address book for several years. It is beautifully designed and the quality of the binding and the paper are excellent. I have used and abused this book but it is still in great shape. I have simply run out of room and I need a new one. Yours is the only company I would buy from and I am looking forward to several more years of use from my new book,. Thank you for making such an outstanding product!
October 13, 2008
Thank you for responding so quickly. I am ordering my organizer and some as gifts. I will return to this site many times!
August 24, 2008
Thank you for your fabulous paper products. Your designs and colors are always so great!
The Folks at AC
I bought one of your Write on and on Journals in the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC and I love it because of the quality of the paper. I like to write with a fountain pen, and your paper is thick enough for me to do this easily.
Thank you very much

My 10 month-old niece loves the first puzzles, even though she’s a little young for them, she likes the colors & the pieces are big.
May 29, 2008
Got the puzzle yesterday. Thanks for the attention and great service. My grandkids love puzzles and I will certainly remember you guys in the future.
April 30, 2008
Hello. I just came across your awesome (but out of stock) Magnetic Monster Figures. I would love to buy them so please let me know when they are in stock again. Thanks a bunch!
April 28, 2008>br>
I also want to buy some puzzles. I am a huge fan of your notecards and puzzles! I have a closet full of Museum Puzzles. There are some from the past that I missed that I wish I could still get.
Thanks so much.
April 15, 2008
I am just writing to tell you that I love my large accordion organizer. I work at a group home with at risk youth, and it helps me to stay organized. I think it is a great product.
April 3, 2008
I have only compliments, no questions, about your site. CUTE AS A BUTTON!! I have already recommended your site...and that was before I even got thru with my online shopping. Thanks for quality, fun, and appealing items. Total eye candy!!
Have a great day-
March 29, 2008
In another month I am celebrating my 40th birthday with a large gathering of family and friends and wanted beautiful stationery for my thank-you notes and I found it at Galison!!
March 12, 2008
The envelopes arrived and are perfect! Thank you very much! I really appreciate it and will be a loyal Galison customer for life…. Great customer service! Thanks!
March 6, 2008
I have to tell you that my grand daughter and her whole family were impressed by the diary that I ordered from your web site. Not only did it get there in time for her birthday, which I didn't expect (she didn't tell me what she wanted until a few days before her birthday), but my son told me she was thrilled with the beauty of the diary and the quality of the paper. And for only ten dollars. A real bargain.
Dixie, February 18, 2008
Thank you for doing that. I already liked your stuff and now I see that your customer service matches, so I will definitely recommend. Thanks again,
January 28, 2008.
Thanks for all your terrific products, for kids and grownups alike.
We're big fans.
January 22, 2008.
Just a brief note to say what a beautiful line of cards you have. After almost finishing up a set of Monet note cards, I went to your Web site to see what else you offer and regret that the holiday season is over because I
saw such beautiful cards.
Anyway, thought you'd like to hear from someone who admires your products.
I've made a note to return to your site for next year's cards.
Hello Mr. Galison.
I eagerly await my order and the one I sent to my mom in her nursing home.
My idea, after viewing all of your lovely products was that she and I could communicate more frequently with some pretty stationary.
My Dad and I have also sent some of your ecards back and forth.
I will browse our site often and recommend it to others.
Thank you for your wonderful products.
I was wondering if you could tell me how much it would cost to ship 1 Mothers and Babies 2 piece puzzle and 1 Basic words French/English to the United Kingdom Please.
The flashcards are brilliant and would make a great gift for Christmas.
From a thank you for a donation letter:
The journals were beautiful—and every teen found one she or he just loved.
Your online site and the quality of your products are outstanding and soooo welcome in this little town that doesn't carry your line..
Hi! I use your beautiful folders in my studio kitchen to hold my cooking instruction labels for customers. I’ve gotten so many comments I’d like to find out if I’m able to order your products for re-sale at my store.
Hope this finds you well… I just wanted to send a quick note to commend you and your staff on their hard work and commitment to your customers. I sent this last ordered in over the weekend and arrived today – less than a week later! I couldn’t believe it. I’m so pleased that your products continue to sell well here at my store and your turnaround time make my life much easier!
Keep up the great work
My daughter received one of these as a gift and absolutely loves it! We do too and would like to buy her more. I saw on your website that you are in NY. We'll be there on vacation in a couple of months and I was wondering if you have a retail store there we can visit or do we need to order our puzzles online?
Thank you for making such great products!
I'm just curious if you have an estimate for when some of the flower-themed sticky notes will be available again. I'm just kicking myself for not stocking up while I could! Now I'm wondering if I should buy up some houndstooth before that's gone, too....
Thanks for your help!
May 10, 2007.
I jut received an issue of wonder time magazine featuring your puzzles…
Jumped right online and was so impressed that I not only purchased a few of the puzzles but I called a friends to share the website with her for her daughter…
Anxiously awaiting the arrival of our order!
Mother of a 2 year old toddler.

I just wanted to thank you for such unique and wonderful products. I recently ordered a couple of puzzles for my Grandson Caleb. He loves playing with them so very much. I also presented him with a "Tickle me Elmo" toy on the same day he received your puzzles. He played with Elmo for only a few minutes, but your puzzles kept him fascinated. Who ever created them - a special , "thank you" is extended. Have a great day.
Thanks for the note. I wanted to let you know you are the only vendor that responds in such a polite way.
It is greatly appreciated and the staff and students love the product. My co-worker and I would like to request a sample of the memo mouse pads(meadowsweet and modern geometry) and also Mud Puppy(world travel magnetic doll only).
Thank you for the prompt, efficient way my order was handled. I received the thank you cards so quickly and they were even nicer than I had anticipated.
Just a note to let you know that I've mailed my Galison Christmas cards.
I've actually received some phone calls and emails from friends and family letting me know how adorable the cards are.
Wow, your Vintage Holiday Cards really made an impression!
Thank you and hoping the staff at Galison Printing have a wonderful Holiday!
I had bought one of your mini-cube 36 piece puzzles (from Barnes & Noble) for my son when he turned 2. He started playing with it right away and when he turned 27 months, he was able to finish the puzzle all by himself without any help from me or his Dad. So I purchased another 5 mini-cube puzzles for him and he absolutely LOVES playing with it and can put all the puzzles together by himself.
Barnes & Noble only had a limited selection of the mini-cube puzzles and I was so happy to find you guys on the Internet. I purchased another 4 for him. It's one of his favorite toys. I love the vast selection/designs you guys have on these puzzles. Even though the box said 3 and up, our son was able to do it.
I've given many of these away as gifts also. I'll be a returning customer, that's for sure.
Keep up the good work.
Thank you for sending the replacement address books. You are on the ball! It's very refreshing to work with someone who does what they say they will do.
Galison is fast becoming my favorite vendor.
Thank you very much for your work on our store's Christmas cards. We received a LOT of compliments on them and people were asking where they could buy a box for themselves. Next year I will definitely order more printed AND blank... and earlier!
Dear Sir or Madame:
I am a great fan of Galison nostalgic cards. The images are truly wonderful.
Dear Galison personnel,
For the last couple of years, I have received your cards from a friend of mine. They have been so unique and adorable that I wanted to know where she got them.
For the past two years, I have enjoyed sending your Monet holiday cards. The quality is excellent, and the "Happy Holidays" and "Season's Greetings" inside messages are appropriate for virtually everyone at the holiday season.
West Hartford, CT
Thank you for sending the Skating Lovers cards. They arrived yesterday. They are just as pretty as I remembered. I appreciate your efforts in checking inventory and sending them to me.
Happy Holidays -
Your website is fantastic - I was able to order so quickly and most others I am not.
I found the link to your site through PetsAlive.com and would just like to state that your selection of products are great and your prices are just as good. I'll be able to afford many products for Christmas gifts.
Thank you and I'll be spreading the word about your site.
I received your shipment of my cards today, and I can’t tell you how pleased I am. The cards and the boxes are lovely. They are exactly what I hoped for, and they were sent out most promptly.
