Arts and Cards, Inc. D/B/A Boston Souvenir Distributors, is a family owned and operated business started in 1981. Bob Tobin owned a pharmacy at the time, and was approached by his local postcard salesman about buying his inventory. A deal was struck, and the pharmacy basement became the first warehouse for Arts and cards, Inc. Steadily, the product line for Arts and Cards began to grow. Soon, this little venture became too big for a second business, so Bob launched Arts and Cards on a full time basis in Brookline, MA. Through the late eighties and early nineties, Arts and Cards grew into one of the larger souvenir suppliers in the Massachusetts area.
The company had grown so much that Bob needed some help. In 1994, Bob’s son Matt joined the family business. With two Tobins on board, things really began to pick up. The product line, customer base, and physical plant needs had grown so much, a move was necessary. In 1997, Arts and Cards moved to South Boston, MA. This move allowed tremendous flexibility for inventory and ease of delivery. By 2001, Arts and Cards had been established as the premier souvenir wholesale distributor in the greater Boston area.
Not only has our business grown, but our staff has as well! In 2005, Kerri-Ann Tobin joined on. And most recently, Phyllis Tobin has joined the team as well! We have full time warehouse support, as well as sales representation in three states.
We are a tried and true family run business with years of expertise in sales, merchandising and fulfillment. There is no better place to buy Boston and Massachusetts souvenir products. We can provide the smallest stock quantity all the way through large custom orders.
So, even though we have become a growing and successful business, we will never lose focus on the most important factor in our achievements: our customers. Our continued growth and success will be impossible to achieve without you. We will always give the best in service and support, and are only a call, email, or fax away to provide any assistance needed.
All of our Best,
