Here at Lip International we have been designing, publishing and distributing greeting cards and gift product since 1984. Currently based in Southport, UK, we always try to use UK based production and local printers wherever possible.
We started out publishing black and white photographic art cards and postcards before moving into the world of artist designed greeting cards and stationery products.
In 1989 Stephen Mackey, a renowned fine artist, joined the company and, along with Peter Seal and Scott Rhodes, created the extremely successful Celestial range of greeting cards. Since then Stephen has worked on numerous ranges and we currently publish his Porcelina and Oklahoma! ranges which are available to buy through this website.
Max Hernn, who was the first artist published by the company, started working with Stephen Mackey in 1995 to create the photographic Bikini range of greeting cards , postcards, poster wrap and other gift and stationery product. The Bikini range is continually being developed by Max Hernn and now boasts a wide range of designs all of which are available to purchase from this website.
At Lip International we have had an online presence for many years. We currently send orders for greetings cards, poster wrap and other gift product worldwide through our retail and trade online stores and are proud of our reputation as a reliable and responsible online retailer.
