Amscan has two arms to its business: wholesale and retail. This website addresses the wholesale divisions of Amscan Inc.
Founded in 1947, Amscan Inc. is the largest designer, manufacturer, and distributor of decorated party goods and party accessories in the world. Our company is also a leading supplier of gifts, home décor, and tabletop products as well as the primary source for gift wrap, gift bags, stationery, and licensed products.
Our identity has a special meaning. Our founders were American and Scandinavian…hence AMSCAN. Our wholesale divisions employ approximately 2,200 associates worldwide, and we distribute products to 40,000 retail outlets throughout North America, Europe, Australia, and Japan.

To date, our specialty gift division has launched more than 10,000 everyday and seasonal specialty gift products, including our Baby, Garden, Inspirational, Holiday, Fall, Halloween, Spring, and Summer collections.
