SELLERS PUBLISHING MISSION STATEMENT

To create and market imaginative, life enhancing products

OUR STORY

We are an independent, New England-based publisher who focuses on all of the joys of life’s milestones and moments. During our 25 years in business, we’ve aimed to create products that are in tune with your lifestyle, help express your personal history, and celebrate a life well lived. We publish calendars, greeting cards, books, and stationery. Our staff of passionate creators strive to highlight the talent of artists and the power of encouraging words. We want to be right alongside you as you graduate college, marry your best friend, become a parent, reflect on the future and on years past, and carve out your place in the world around you.


COMPANY HISTORY

Sellers Publishing was founded in 1993 by Ronnie Sellers, who published just two pet calendars that first year. Over the next five years, the calendar line doubled in size every year, and today we offer over 200 titles in our calendar lines, including many different formats and numerous top-selling licensed titles. 

Sellers’ initial goal of being a book publisher also came to fruition early on, starting with the company publishing two books and quickly becoming a vendor for well-known national bookstores within the first few years. Sellers Publishing books have earned distinctive awards, including a Benjamin Franklin Book of the Year Award, an iParent Media Book of the Year Award, the Independent Publisher’s Book of the Year Award, Book of the Year Awards from Foreword Magazine, and more.  Twice each year, the company introduces a variety of new frontlist titles, and now offers over 340 popular gift books, cook books and trade books.  

In 2008, Sellers moved into our own 47,000 sq. ft. headquarters in South Portland, Maine, which includes a recently expanded 18,000 sq. foot warehouse and shipping facility to better serve the firm’s expanding customer base. The same year, we introduced the RSVP® Greeting Card line, and soon after that, the Wicked Funny® humor line was launched. RSVP has over 2,000 everyday and seasonal designs that are sold in large and small retail stores across North America. With one of the highest refresh rates in the industry, Sellers consistently introduces new designs.

In 2016, the High Note Premium Planners & Stationery line was introduced, and the products were picked up by several major retailers in 2017. By 2018, four new formats were introduced to the organizer line, and the High Note Premium Greeting Card line was expanded with 28 new designs and refreshed with handmade embellishments, unique processes, and additional decorative details.

 

“The idea for our High Note products was born out of our attention to growing market trends and an increased demand from our customers for modern, stylized, and high quality organizational and stationery products. In keeping with our mission here at Sellers Publishing, we created the sophisticated High Note premium line of products to combine fashion, art, and function in a way that appeals to a broad range of men and women.”     
                                                           
Lindsey Sellers, Executive Vice President 

 

Early on, Sellers Publishing placed high priority on building and maintaining long term relationships with our business partners, and emphasized the importance of creating unique, original, high quality products, providing superior customer service, and offering competitive pricing. All these factors are still the cornerstones of the company today.

OUR EVOLVING COMMITMENT TO OUR ENVIRONMENT

At Sellers Publishing, we’re committed to finding ways to minimize our impact on the environment. 

As a step toward this goal, all of our High Note calendars, planners, and stationery are printed entirely on paper that contains fiber from well managed and responsibly harvested forests that meet strict environmental and socioeconomic standards.
