The company was founded in a bookstore in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1906 by its owner, Fred Winslow Rust. The company's first Christmas card was printed on heavy tan paper and included a brief message in two colors. The success of the Christmas card grew into a business letters, postcards, and greeting cards with envelopes. Rust revolutionized the use of the "French Fold," which turned a single piece of paper into a card by folding it into quarters. They were the first company to sell greeting cards with a fitted envelope. Rust was soon joined by his brother Donald The brothers eventually retired from the book store and moved to Massachusetts to focus on the greeting cards. At first the company was located at 1000 Washington Street in Boston's South End neighborhood. Needing more space, the company built a new facility on Rustcraft Road in nearby Dedham, Massachusetts in 1954. was at the time the largest greeting card factory in the world on what is today Rustcraft Road
