Our History W J Nigh & Sons Limited was founded in 1903 by WILLIAM JAMES NIGH in the town of Ventnor on the south coast of the Isle of Wight. He started his business by publishing Isle of Wight postcards and distributing stationery products.

As the business developed, William was joined by his four sons and in the 1930’s the company began printing black and white photographic postcards which were sold on the Isle of Wight and the South of England.

As time progressed, souvenirs became an important addition to the business and the company originated many of today’s most popular Isle of Wight souvenir products (for example, the Six Wonders of the Isle of Wight). Over successive years, the range has been expanded to meet the high demand of its customers and today boasts a stock of over 8000 lines.

W. J. Nigh & Sons Limited is still privately owned and is currently operated by the fourth generation of the family (two brothers and a cousin), who continue to maintain the personal commitment of the past with an efficient, modern service and an ever-changing range of merchandise. Within the last generations involvement, the company has moved to a new purpose built warehouse facility, with offices and permanent fully air conditioned showrooms for customers to view the different ranges.

W. J. Nigh & Sons Limited is a long-standing family business, with modern ways and traditional values. Contact Us for further details on our extensive range and services or to enquire about becoming a Trade Client.
