Wrapping PaperDecember 9, 2016
The appearance of festive gift wrap in stores is one of the first signs that the Christmas season is here. But wrapping Christmas gifts is a relatively new custom.
Tissue paper “gift dressings” had been around for a while. The captain of that industry was Dennison Manufacturing of Framingham, MA.
Dennison operated in Framingham for nearly a century. The company was acquired by Avery in the 1990s.
In this episode we hear from Pat Lavin, author of Welcome to Dennison Manufacturing Co.
