We are celebrating our company's 25th year in business this year! Happy Birthday to us!
Who we are:
Affirmations Publishing House is a vibrant company on a mission to pass positive messages around the globe. The word Affirmation means "a positive statement or judgement" and this definition totally supports our company philosophy.
In 1987, we travelled throughout Australia and could not find a collection of cards anywhere that really inspired us, that were creative, special and yet succinct in the messages they conveyed. We realised this was something we could do together from anywhere in the world, and so the idea for the Affirmations company was born in August 1988 in Sydney with just 24 cards designed on our dining room table.
We have developed a business we are proud of and we owe much of our success to the power of positive thinking. Each year we send literally millions of positive messages out into the world which is adding to the lives of others.
Where you will find us:
In 1990, we chose a charming country town called Bellingen on the Mid North Coast of Eastern Australia to live and work. Whether it’s the Arts, Music, Food or Architecture, the Bellinger Valley houses some of the most colourful communities and events in NSW. The 3500 locals come from all walks of life: some third generation families, others from cities nationally and internationally, all with their story of how they ‘found’ Bellingen.
This picturesque setting is the ideal environment for Affirmations Publishing House to radiate from and we have been happily situated in a beautiful art deco building built in 1930, in the main street of town for most of the company's life. Pouring heart and soul into our growing venture, we have created a unique range of products that make a difference in people's lives. All our products are designed to inspire, uplift and enlighten. We believe passing inspirational messages from one person to another is helping to create a positive shift in values on this planet, thus making a better world for us all. It is also because of the enthusiasm and desire of so many people for this type of product that has inspired us to continue to build Affirmations as a channel for positive communication.
Our aim is to help you achieve a more positive life, give you a fantastic feeling and hope that those you pass our products onto receive something special too. Helping us to feel good on the inside are the gentle affirmations we see every day in the course of our work with our products. Affirming ourselves, reminding us to think positively and having fun on our journey through life helps to improve the quality of our lives, helps us grow and frees up energy for things that matter the most.
At our warehouse we recycle everything that comes in. All our power comes from renewable energy sources. We print on recycled paper using vegetable-based inks, shred all paper for packaging and use environmentally sound packing beads when we send your orders.
It is our pledge to take active responsibility in reshaping the role of business in society and the environment as well as to provide secure, stable and meaningful employment for our staff both here in Bellingen and people around the globe. We invite people into a world that delivers an environment where they can participate, enjoy and create. We want to make it fun and engaging and strive for a mutually beneficial outcome.
You will be positively delighted when you deal with Affirmations - Suzi, Dan and everyone at Affirmations.
