Galison was founded in 1979 to work with museums to make artist imagery widely available in the form of well-designed paper products. Galison first published calendars and a few books before focusing primarily on fine art stationery, boxed notecards, greeting cards, personalized Christmas cards, journals, and other gift products for writers. During this time the company was known as Galison Books or GMG Publishing.

In 1993 Galison introduced Holiday cards and gifts to the product portfolio. Galison’s holiday collection includes Christmas and seasonal cards featuring unique as well as well-known, iconic imagery. This product line is sold at retail as well as custom products for corporations.

Although our products feature contemporary art and design, we maintain a core group of products using fine art images, making Galison products very popular in museum stores. Our fine art stationery is also sold at top specialty retailers such as Barnes & Noble, Papyrus, Indigo, Anthropologie, Pottery Barn Kids, Amazon and more. We are also proud to be in fine independent gift and bookstores everywhere.

Over the years, Galison has worked with museums, non-profit organizations, and diverse businesses and corporations to create private label custom products. The McEvoy Group, a media company based in San Francisco, acquired Galison in March 2012. McEvoy’s other holdings include Chronicle Books, and Princeton Architectural Press.

We pride ourselves in our ability to bring art into everyday life with our award winning collection of stationery and gift products. One of the hallmarks of Galison is our focus on collaborating with new artists and illustrators.
