About Us


Established in 1987, McMillan has always been about distribution to destinations all over Australia, supplying the greeting card, gift and homewares markets. The Company operates from its owned warehouse and office complex situated in the Northern Beaches area of Sydney.

The cornerstone of McMillan is our greeting cards. Sourced mainly in the UK, they include those British publishers who are most highly regarded and have received awards as such. The ranges are exclusive to McMillan, diverse, cover all occasions and include art cards and intellectual humour. Squirrel, based in Queensland, is our first 100% Australian made range.

McMillan also distributes an amazing collection of paper serviettes. The napkins are sourced from the 3 acknowledged best European manufacturers: the respected design leaders at Germany’s IHR (Ideal Home Range) who feature the international design Company Marimekko; Caspari Inc., based in the USA, are a rich and bold design house who offer a beautifully co-ordinated napkin and tabletop collection; the ever-modern and creative PPD (PaperProducts Designs). All napkins are FSC accredited, 3-ply quality and printed with up to 12 colours. The variation in design and colour that we offer works with any tabletop story.
