About Rust Craft:

The Rust Craft Greeting Card Company was begun as a little bookshop by Fred Rust (1877-1949) in Kansas City, Missouri, 1906. He consolidated his business in Boston in 1914. In the 1950s the company relocated to Dedham, Massachusetts and in 1981 merged with the Norcross Company. Both the Norcross and Rust Craft companies collected antique greeting cards. In 1980, American Greetings purchased the rights to Rust Craft Greeting Cards of Toronto, Canada, and all of its subsidiaries.

Evolution of Wrapping Paper:

The look of wrapping paper has evolved with the times. Early wrapping paper was decorated in the ornate Victorian style, mainly with birds and flowers. In the 30's and 40's, more stylized paper was a reflection of the Art-Deco era, featuring scenes of Christmas trees, ivy, snowflakes, and candles. By the 70's and 80's, advertisers realized the marketing potential from gift wrapping, so many designs during this time had themes of movies and television shows. Also in the 80's, decorative plastic and paper gift bags were introduced. A custom revived from the Victorian Era, they were an instant hit, offering a quick and easy packaging alternative for gift giving.

When presenting gifts on an international level, keep in mind their particular etiquette when it comes to gift-giving. Unlike the U.S., many countries across the globe, from Norway to Costa Rica, place high value on the quality of the paper in which your gift is wrapped. In countries like Japan and Portugal, the emphasis of gift giving is on the presentation, and the cost of the wrapping sometimes exceeds the cost of the gift!

Wrapping paper will continue to evolve adding more choices from the traditional roll of wrapping paper to decorated gift bags and boxes. Today, virtual wrapping paper is available to shoppers online with the purchase of a gift card making it possible to wrap a gift without paper, though I still prefer the old fashioned ways!
