What is Convivial Brands and The High Five GR?

Convivial Brands started 34 years ago with just one brand – Design Design – which strived to create connections and celebrate moments through greeting cards. Since then, we have grown and expanded to five brands – Design Design, Verdant Graphics, Style Life, The High Five GR, and Tableau – and we now offer a wide range of products such as greeting cards, paper tableware, gift wrap, notebooks/journals, candles, mugs, and high-end home entertaining and home décor items, as well as event planning and printing services.


The High Five GR is an expansive, beautifully renovated loft space that exemplifies the best in “old world meets new” with original roller rink hardwood floors and exposed brick, combined with beautiful chandeliers and hip artisan tile and glass. It’s the perfect space for any occasion.
