Gift Stationery and Social Stationery are the heart and soul of Jean Barrington, based in the scenic surroundings of the North York Moors. We have been manufacturing our own gift stationery and social stationery for nearly 20 years and is the brain child of Nigel and Jean Boyes.

Whilst owning several retail shops specialising in social stationery, we saw an opportunity in the market for traditional high quality Wedding and Party Invitations and after purchasing a Heidelberg platen and producing their first range of brand invitations they quickly realised that, as the products were selling so well for them, they should sell into other retailers. So Jean Barrington was formed. Nigel was out in his car, and from then on they have not had time to look back. We now proudly have a dedicated team of Heidelberg specialists who take every care in making sure the products we produce are of the highest quality before they leave our doors.

We expanded in to Gift Stationery in 2003, distributing for American company Lady Jayne and now distribute for Pictura and Lissom Design.
