McMillan has been established since 1987. The Company's business is distribution and it operates from its owned warehouse and office in Sydney, despatching to destinations all over Australia.
McMillan (known initially as McMillan Cards & Paper Pty Ltd) is an established and respected supplier to the Australian greeting card, gift and homewares market and participates in the major Australian Gift trade fairs.
The beginnings of McMillan and still our cornerstone is the very beautiful ranges of greeting cards we offer. Mostly sourced in the UK, many of our suppliers are awarded publishers. The extensive range represents the very top end of quality, the latest boards, special finishes and design fashions all assure high pocket turns. The range covers all occasions and includes art cards and intellectual humour. We have recently added Squirrel to our collection, a diverse range of humour and art, 100% Australian made.
McMillan also offers a huge range of FSC accredited European manufactured 3-ply paper serviettes, a great mix of classic/creative and modern design. We work with the acknowledged top 3 European manufacturers: the very respected design leaders at Germany’s IHR (Ideal Home Range) who feature a large range by the Finnish designers at Marimekko; based in the USA, Caspari Inc. are a rich and bold design house who offer a napkin and tabletop collection; and the ever modern and creative PPD (PaperProducts Designs). The associated products from these suppliers plus some quirky gift lines, European pillar and taper candles, rolled wrapping paper and gift bags form the balance of our product ranges. Additionally we are now working with the Danish based ‘Sirius Collection’ of LED gift boxed light decorations. Sirius incorporates beautiful Danish design and clever, remote functionality. Our latest addition is the very popular Räder. Based in Germany and working mostly in hand-finished porcelain items they supply beautifully boxed, contemporary gift lines and homewares including their signature product ‘the lighthouses’. Go to the Räder tab on the menu bar and see a whole street of them!
The McMillan customer base is gold, a wonderfully diverse collection of talented retailers gathered over our 30 odd years of trading. These retailers include the best in Australia: national chains, independent card retailers, gift stores, homewares stores, book shops, garden centres and children’s stores. They can access McMillan at the trade shows, at private showings, the head office customer service team and via our popular website which has again recently been upgraded for ease of access and movement across the associated product lines. Most popular are our sales representatives who unbelievably cover most of Australia. Based in their home State they use an electronic on-road ordering system and carry relevant samples.
My staff and I have a passion for this business. We aim to provide our customers with a unique level of contemporary product choice and personal service.
