About Greetz

From idea to success

From idea to success

Greetz was launched in 2004 and was the Netherlands' first online greeting card service. The idea - a print-on-demand version of the traditional greeting card - was the brainchild of the company's owners, Johan van Vulpen and Simen Schimmel. After various collaborations with Hallmark and TNT Post, Greetz embarked on a new phase in 2009, when it became an independent brand. Offering products like flowers, balloons and chocolate Greetz is now the ultimate online platform for personal gifting.
