About Giftstar

Giftstar.co.uk is based in the Weardale Business Centre, a grade two listed building in the centre of the historic market town of Stanhope in beautiful County Durham. The business has developed rapidly since it started trading in February 2008 and is proud to offer personalised gifts to customers around the world.


At Giftstar.co.uk we not only create bold, recognisable designs with memorable characters, but we also allow you to make these designs more personal through the process of customisation. You can add a name, slogan or nickname to each of our products, making your gift more special for whoever receives it. Giftstar.co.uk is a British company and we ensure your gifts reach you in high quality, both quickly and promptly.

We use a high-quality printing technique known as dye-sublimation to permanently transfer full-colour images and text onto specially prepared blank products using patented ink, heat and vacuum pressure. The image is permanently sealed onto the product, leaving a stunning product with a hard-wearing finish.

Search our extensive collection of artwork for your favourite films, tv programmes, characters and brands. With our brilliant designs increasing in range regularly, Giftstar.co.uk is a one-stop shop for our customers to discover exclusive products that engage, delight and bring happiness to the recipient of any gift.
