The first Postmark opened in Balham, south-west London in 2004 by Mark Janson-Smith. Mark had worked for the previous couple of years at a gift shop in Clapham when he had the idea to open his own shop selling quality, design led greeting cards.
Many people thought it would never work but he really believed in the quality of the products he was selling and that there was a market in what was a changing part of south London.
He found a tiny shop to let and took a leap.
He wasn't wrong. Balham was changing and they loved Postmark.
Since then Mark, who was joined in the business by his wife Leona in 2015, has gone on to open three more shops - East Dulwich in 2009, Turnham Green Terrace in 2014 and Greenwich in 2017.
Named 'Best Independent Greeting Card Retailer - London' an unprecedented 3 times, Postmark went on to be voted 'Best Greeting Card Retailer - 2017' beating off competition from other major greeting card retailers including WH Smith.
