Here at Renton's we like to be different. Maybe it's our rarified mile-high air in Denver . Maybe it comes from marketing such a fun and unique product. Whatever the reason, we are not your typical company.
First, we believe that business can and should be fun, and so we try to add an element of fun to everything we do. That is why we have Cuddles, our cute and cuddly mascot.
We also believe that business is about people, and in particular about relationships between people. Those companies that embrace this way of doing business are not only the most successful and enduring companies, they are the most respected. We try to embrace these ideals and we encourage all our customers to as well. Our products can help in this regard, but to be truly successful it needs to be a natural part of the way you do business. Not only will you be more successful running a business this way it is a more enjoyable and honorable way to do business.
We believe business is still built on personal relationships. Anytime you have the opportunity to add a personal touch you are setting yourself apart from your competitors. We hope our products will help in this area.
Another one of our core philosophies can be summed up in two words: adding value. We always like to remind you that we have the largest selection of stickers in America . Our catalog and this web site clearly demonstrate that. But we try to give you much more than that. We provide all Renton 's customers with our quarterly newsletter ”Renton's Quarterly“ absolutely free. It contains both informative articles that will help you in your job as well as entertaining articles for you to enjoy. We hope you think that it adds value in your business relationship with Renton's.
Most businesses today do a good job. Few do a great job, and even fewer are outstanding. We try hard to belong in the last category.
History of Renton’s
Renton’s International Stationery began in Sydney, Australia back in 1965. Jack Renton, the founder, was working as the credit manager at a construction company at the time, when he heard about these little stickers that helped speed payments. He gave them a try and they were extremely effective. So much so, that his friends and colleagues wanted to use them.
Frustrated by the boring designs and lack of local availability he started designing his own labels and selling them on the side. So the idea for Renton’s was born. Initially a part time business run literally out of the family garage, it expanded rapidly in the early years, and soon became a fully-fledged operation with several employees.
This was a true family business. Jack’s wife Patience and their three children, Ian, Peter and Robyn all helped out in the family business whenever needed. Peter Renton joined the family business full time in 1989 barely a year out of college, with big plans to expand the business internationally. After a successful exploratory venture in New Zealand, Jack and Peter set their sights on the United States.
At this stage Ian, Jack’s eldest son, joined the family business in Sydney. So after an investigative trip to America to get an initial reaction and choose a city to start in (Denver won out over Portland and San Diego), Peter landed in America on October 7, 1991. The first mailing went out a week later. Renton’s has been serving the businesses of America ever since.
In July of 2005 Peter sold Renton’s to Gary and Dawn Goldwasser. Three years before, Peter started another company, Lightning Labels. It supplies Renton’s with stickers, and also provides custom product labels to small businesses around the country. Peter’s new company grew to where he couldn’t commit to both companies, and he needed someone who could devote the time and energy needed to grow and sustain Renton’s.
Since 1965, when Jack Renton first began selling stickers out of the family garage, Renton’s commitment to our customers has never changed. We will do everything we can to help you add a personal touch to your collections, to make your job easier and to make your job more enjoyable. Of course, we will always provide you with a large selection of Collection and Thank You stickers, and with our quarterly newsletters and new products we will try to keep you well informed as well as entertained.
