About Crescent

Crescent is at the top of the game when it comes to manufacturing and marketing high-quality paper and board products.

Just ask the thousands of artists and custom framers we serve.

With a focus on color, innovation, and design, we do business around the world across 6 continents (we’re still working on Antarctica).

Our Roots

Crescent was founded over 115 years ago (yep, shocks us too!) by the Ozmun family, which is now in its fifth generation of leadership and commitment to the company. Our private, family-owned company is headquartered in Wheeling, Illinois, but our reach is global.

Our Commitment

We’ve always been committed to providing the highest quality art and presentation products. We continue to innovate and develop new, on-trend products to meet the changing needs and interests of the talented artists and framers that trust us.

Nothing is too far in our effort to ensure that all of our products, activities and development reflect our commitment to integrity, community and the environment. This is why our Crescent art and preservation materials have been selected for decades by students, hobbyists, and professionals alike.


Find us in every corner of the world

We are recognized worldwide for our broad range of products, industry leadership in color, and quality commitment.

Now serving 6 continents, we continue to expand our facilities to service those markets. In addition to our U.S. Headquarters, we’ve set up shop in Europe, and have a number of worldwide distribution partners servicing the rest of the world. You can find Crescent products in thousands of retailers across the globe.
