Matt and Andria Gibson founded the Reminisce retail store in February of 2002. Combining Andria's creative passion with Matt's marketing expertise, Reminisce was soon named one of the Midwest's best scrapbooking stores. During the store's first year in business, Matt and Andria took a front-row seat to the industry as they quickly learned what type of products their customers were looking for. Armed with this knowledge and the talent of two graphic designers, Matt and Andria took their business to the next level. The manufacturing side of the company was born in July of 2003 and began with two collections; Scrap in the Fast Lane papers and handmade Travel Tags. Today, Reminisce employs 13 individuals, along with over 30 independent contractors, and offers more than 60 collections of paper, stickers, albums and embellishments.

Andria Gibson is a graduate of the University of Iowa's College of Business and has been scrapbooking for more than eight years. Her passion for the craft became the genesis for Reminisce. Andria and her husband, Matt, have two beautiful daughters, Isabella and Vivian. When she is not in the store, Andria teaches at conventions around the country, spends time with her girls, and competes in marathons.

Matt Gibson received his degree in marketing from Cornell College. Before opening Reminisce, Matt successfully opened and grew multiple businesses, including an international mail-order company specializing in collectibles. Matt stays current with the trends of the scrapbooking industry by marketing and purchasing for the Reminisce retail store in Coralville, Iowa. In his free time, Matt pursues his passion for skiing, and enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters.

Matt and Andria would like to personally thank our incredible staff, design team, and you, our loyal customers.
