Postmark - Greeting card shops in Balham, Dulwich, Chiswick and Greenwich

The Postmark Story

The first Postmark opened in Balham, south-west London in 2004 and behind the counter was a young (er!) 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 (including his future wife ahem!) 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 it opened it's doors all those years ago it's become a real neighbourhood favourite.

Since then Mark, who was joined in the business by his wife Leona in 2015, has gone on to open three more shops. Postmark East Dulwich in 2009, Postmark Chiswick on Turnham Green Terrace in 2014

and Postmark Greenwich in 2017.






Award-winning retailer 

We love what we do and over the years we've been lucky enough to have that passion recognised.  In 2008 we were named 'Best Independent Greeting Card Retailer - London' at the RETAS ( the Oscar's for the

Greeting Card Industry!). We were so excited to win this award - our first ever - and couldn't believe it when we won for an unprecedented second time in 2009.


In 2015, following the opening of our Greenwich branch, we were again awarded 'Best Independent Greeting Card Retailer - London.'


In 2017 we were blown away to take home the title of 'Greeting Card Retailer of the Year' beating off strong comeptition from the likes of Tesco, WHSmith and The Card Factory. We also picked up a seperate award for our monthly 'Feel Good Friday' campaign, which encourages people to send cards 'just because' by giving them a free card to send and paying for their postage anywhere in the UK.
