Mamelok originates from Breslau, now known as Wroclaw, in Poland, and was launched in the first half of the 19th century. One of the first commercial colour printing companies, Mamelok developed as a publisher by selling religious pictures (also known as oleographs) and embossed scrap reliefs. The company came to London in 1940 and in 1968 moved to Bury St Edmunds in 1968 before buying a German company called Heilbronn und Pinner (known as H&P Decorations).
Now based just outside Cambridge, Mamelok continues to manufacture and sell paper party masks, paper garlands, Christmas and everyday cards, scrap reliefs and flags and bunting to customers all over the world. As a result, you can now buy our products in shops, museums and galleries, via mail order and online.
