Renato Calandrelli begins

First Card Company in

Cranston, RI

with a staff of 4-5 employees and

   three power-press hot stamping

      machines to produce jewelry

         packaging cards.


First Card Company

relocates to Grosvenor

Ave, East Providence, RI

and expands their manufacturing

capabilities by adding plastic

extrusion — allowing the product

offering to expand to include

custom extrude profiles.


Lamination capabilities evolved

allowing the product offering to include

pressure sensitive label stocks, bar code

labels, and security labels.


First Card Company relocates to 79

Commercial Way, East Providence

which is where we still call home today! The

additional modern space allows for further investment in equipment by adding flexographic

printing and expanding the power-press and hot

stamping departments to support growth


Investments continued throughout

this period as technology evolved

into the computerized graphics and

business systems to better serve

our customers

Anthony Calandrelli,

second generation, takes

over the business from his

father Renato


Printing capabilities expand to

include digital printing

allowing for shorter runs, lower cost,

and quicker turn-around on orders


First Card Develops revolutionary

products — EZ RING solutions, a one piece system

These products provide a better presentation of carded and box jewelry rings and reduces losses at the retail level due to theft


Daniel Calandrelli, third generation, joins the business

leading the company into the next generation in innovative manufacturing to keep us ahead of the future trends in packaging


We are now called FIRST CARD PACKAGING

a worldwide supplier of packaging to the jewelry and accessory markets for over 35 years. The name change reflects our commitment
