'Abbey Gift' to start shipping soon 

CA Gift has announced the purchase of the gift division of Abbey Press. In business for more than 50 years, Abbey Press is well-respected for its artistic, inspirational and religious product. The new acquisition will do business as Abbey Gift and begin shipping from CA Gift’s Providence, Rhode Island-based facility in early June.

“We are thrilled to add this time-honored business to the CA Gift family,” said President Leo Tracey. “We expect a seamless transition as we retain both the creative and sales teams and move forward with such highly regarded collections as Amazing Woman and Woman of Faith, in addition to special-occasion giftware and the ever popular Advent and Irish collections.”

Abbey Press is owned and operated by Saint Meinrad Archabbey, a 160-year-old Benedictine monastic community located in St. Meinrad, Indiana. In December 2016, the archabbey decided to cease operation of its wholesale gift and printing divisions. CA believed the cohesiveness of the two product lines presented a unique opportunity to continue and expand its offerings to both CA and Abbey Press customers.

CA Gift designs and markets its inspirational gift line from its Providence headquarters in addition to operating its own manufacturing facility in El Salvador, Central America.

“We look forward to working with Abbey Press’ loyal customers and to introducing this line to CA Gift customers,” Tracey said. “We invite all retailers and buyers to visit the beautiful CA Gift showroom at the Atlanta Gift Mart, Building 2, #1335A. Both the Abbey Gift and CA Gift collections will be on display, including exciting new introductions from both."

Because of the transition, Abbey Gift and CA Gift will not be participating in CBA's UNITE show this summer in Cincinnati.
