Galison Publishing LLC

Who are we?

Founded in 1979, Galison is now a team of more than 30, based in New York City.

In the beginning, we worked with museums to make select art imagery widely available in the form of smartly designed paper products. As the firm grew, so too did our product scope. With the successful publication of assorted calendars and books, we expanded our portfolio to include fine art stationery, boxed notecards, greeting cards, personalized holiday cards, journals and singular gift items for writers.

Today, we offer a dazzling array of puzzles, games, gifts, stationery, home decor products and desk accessories. Our innovation in puzzles and games, in particular, has set us on the path to becoming a key player in that market. At the same time, our intent with all our work remains to continue inspiring our customers — to bring more art into everyday life.

Galison is proud to partner with an eclectic mix of known and emerging artists in creating beautifully designed products for everyday use. Toward that end, we are passionate about discovering new artists, while working hard to utterly delight the vast spectrum of our customers.

Our products are sold at museum shops, top specialty retailers, and independent gift and toy stores everywhere.
