Proudly Canadian for more than seven decades, Regal was first established in 1928, when a young Canadian envelope salesman named William McCartney first put his entrepreneurial vision to the test. Intrigued with the idea of manufacturing his own greeting cards, he approached a small card company in Toronto, and with the support of a $500 investment from the woman who would later become his wife, William McCartney launched Regal.
Regal Gifts Corporation is an e-commerce, catalogue and direct marketing company operating in Canada using the Regal brand which has been part of the Canadian landscape for 8 decades. Regal Gifts re-entered the market in February of 2006, as the dominant player in the gift and gadget market for the direct selling industry in Canada.
