About Us

Ann Werme Group—formerly Ann Werme Stationers—was founded in 2003, in a spare bedroom. Ann began her business of creating custom wedding invitations. To accommodate growing business, she moved into an office suite, added others to her team, and established the business as a Certified Women’s Business Enterprise.

After selling his company, Rusty joined AWG to help with accounting and financials, but realized the growing requests of our clients for advice when shopping for exceptional and personalized gifts as well as branded favors. The distinguishing AWG gift ideas made such a statement with the recipients that they began inquiring about corporate gifts.

No longer a supplier of wedding invitations, the AWG marketing team continues to grow, and has become Houston’s best source for distinctive branded products and corporate gifts.
