Signature Gifts, is a personalised gift company specialising in creative ideas in print. We create, develop and manufacture most of the gifts we sell, ensuring our products reach you in perfect condition.
Our range of personalised gifts are sold via many leading mail order and online retailers, however we can cater to all sizes of business.
The fact that we offer three specialist areas of personalisation skills, Signature Gifts specialises in print and original newspapers, Signature Books specialises in books, and Signature PG specialises in apparel, ceramics and engraving. This makes us a one-stop shop, not jack of all trades.
Signature Gifts are gift suppliers to the trade who specialise in personalised gifts. We were founded in 2003 by Kevin Spindler and Mike Herbert, who were determined to use the growing power of the internet to exploit the personalised gift market.
Things very much went according to plan and we quickly made a name for ourselves as a leading gift supplier in the design, manufacture and distribution of innovative personalised presents. This in-house policy continues to ensure our products reach you in perfect condition and is undoubtedly the key to our success.
A merger with Historic Newspapers – an established company in both the UK and the US – has also resulted in continued growth. As such, we now work with all of the main UK newspaper titles, the Washington Post, Dallas Morning News, Seattle TImes and the LA Times, who license us to reproduce their newspapers.
Today, we ship over 400,000 individual gifts every year, from premises in both the US and UK. Moreover, our trade gifts sell through a number of leading mail order and online retailers, as well as smaller retailers throughout the country.
In 2013 Signature Gifts reinforced its position as the Premier Personalised Gift Company, by teaming up with Debbi Hancock, founder of PGUK, to create Signature PG (SPG), a separate company that focuses on ceramics, glassware, engraving and embroidery.
Together, Signature Gifts and Signature PG have become a one stop shop for all things personalised, and boast the largest range of personalised giftware in the UK.
To expand the businesses further, within the last 18 months, both sides of the business have invested heavily in new properties in order to provide more product on a wider scale, whist still showing the same attention to detail. Signature PG's 9249 square foot warehouse has enabled us expand our in-house production by purchasing new equipment and new members of staff.

We take a great deal of pride in our Customer Service. Our contact details are easily found on all of our websites. And our phone lines are always answered promptly because we don’t believe in annoying multiple touchtone options.
We also provide easily accessible facilities to further enhance our after-care service. These include our online tracking service, through which an order status can be checked, as well as a facility that allows customers to change their personalisation details after ordering.
It’s worth noting that because we create and manufacture the products ourselves, there’s always the assurance that we can solve issues quickly, without having to go through numerous third parties.
Our companies are currently located in two locations in the UK. Our Head Office is in Harpenden in Hertfordshire while our warehouse including the newspaper archive is in Scotland, and our SPG warehouse and customer services are based in Stoke-on-Trent.
