Find Gift Baskets & Personalized Gifts with Delivery For Any Occasion !


In 1979 Tom Riordan started Maple Ridge Farms from his kitchen table. At that time, Tom was producing gifts from home, putting blocks of Wisconsin Cheese in custom imprinted wooden boxes and selling them locally as holiday business-gifts. Today Maple Ridge Farms is the largest company the United States specializing in corporate food gift programs. In our gift line you will still find plenty of Wisconsin cheese along with handmade chocolates, fresh-roasted nuts, smoked meats, and more.

We have built our business on one, guiding principle: Your gifts should be recognized for their outstanding quality and exceptional flavor! We guarantee that every gift is one that you will be proud to give (and would be happy to receive). We continually develop new products and packaging to provide our customers with fresh options.

Business gifts are our only business. After 35 years of listening, we understand your needs. We also know what customers, clients and employees expect and enjoy. So take advantage of our expertise, sit back, relax, and enjoy the holidays.

Our quality is quite simply the best. Whether it's the richness of our handmade chocolates, the crunchy freshness of our fresh-roasted nuts, or the exceptional flavor of our smoked meats, we've built our reputation on high standards of excellence.

We ship on-time. Nothing is more frustrating than gifts shipped late. We've developed a 'fail-safe' system to process your order quickly and correctly. In fact, since 1979 we have shipped over 99.9% of all orders on time.

All About Gifts & Baskets is proud to be a Maple Ridge Farms Food Gift Distributor and we know that you will enjoy their gifts as much as we do.  They truly taste as good as they look!

Artwork Requirements

NOTE: When supplied artwork does not meet factory's requirements or clean-up, revisions and changes to artwork are requested, an art charge of $45 will apply. Add one additional day of production time.

1) Artwork Tips: 

Artwork must be one color high contrast with no gradients, halftones, screens, or shadows or bold typestyles.  All strokes and outlines should be 1 point or greater.  Type, characters or lines that are within 1/16' on finished art will fill in.  Very fine and intricate details cannot be clearly reproduced.

Artwork should be submitted in CMYK format. PMS matching available on items so noted.

Artwork should be submitted as EPS or PDF at 300 dpi or better.

2) Hard Copy for Verification: No matter what the format or transfer method, artwork should always be submitted with either a hard copy for verification or the electronic equivalent. Properly prepared PDF files or JPG files are often suitable as verification.

3) Size of Artwork: Indicate if supplied artwork is 'to size'. If not to size, indicate at what percentage it should be used or what the finished size should be (e.g.. make 1 1/4'' wide). Factory will enlarge or reduce artwork at no charge. When maximum imprint area is requested, or when percentage is not specified, factory will use its best judgment to achieve an attractive imprint and may reduce or enlarge artwork.

4) Graphics Program:  Preferred - Adobe Illustrator.  Accepted - Adobe Photoshop, Corel Draw.

5) File Formats:

Preferred Formats
Vector Artwork Files (EPS): Must be saved in the Postscript Format and contain no Postscript errors. All design elements in the file should be 1 point or greater. Failure to do so may compromise the final imprint quality. If the vector file contains any linked (placed) raster images, these images must meet the minimum requirement for resolution when rendered at 100% actual imprint size and must be submitted with the original vector file.

Acrobat Files (PDF): PDF files created from vector files must retain the editing capabilities of the program that was used to create them (e.g. Illustrator or Freehand). PDF files that contain raster elements must meet the minimum requirements for raster art files as outlined below. PDF files that contain vector elements must meet the minimum requirements for vector art files as indicated above. PDF files created from page layout documents should be submitted together with the source documents, fonts and all supporting files.

Acceptable Formats
Raster Artwork Files (TIFF or JPEG): All raster elements and art files must be sized to 100% or larger than the actual imprint size. All Raster images must meet or exceed 300 dpi (minimum resolution) and must be submitted in the proper color space (CMYK).

6) Font Information: The smallest font size that can be clearly reproduced is 8 pt. in sans serif or 12 pt. in serif fonts. Script fonts must be at least 12 pt.  Convert text to paths, curves or outlines (text that becomes an object and can no longer be edited as text.) If this is not possible, send in PC compatible screen and printer fonts used only for the job submitted. . There are a few simple steps that you can take to convert fonts to outlines: In Adobe Illustrator, select the text that needs to be converted, click on Type (in the top toolbar), and then click on Create Outlines. In Adobe Photoshop, select the text that needs to be converted, click on Layer (in the top toolbar), select Type, and then select Convert to Shape.  Be sure you've chosen one of our stock fonts (Typestyles shown below). If you desire a font other than one of our standard fonts submit it as vector art.

7) Ribbon Imprint Information: Repeat (foil-stamped ribbon only): Imprint repeats approximately every 3-5 inches. There is approximately 2-2 1/2 inches in between each imprint.

8) Artwork Proofs: A proof of artwork layout will be provided normally within 48 hours of receipt.  Note that the order will be placed on hold until receipt of the complete order including proof approval.

9) Stock Designs:

Don't have a logo or short on time?  Consider one of our stock designs:

Stock Firebrand Designs - available on our cutting boards and wooden collector's box designs.  Note the graphics shown have been reduced for illustrative purposes.


Stock Ribbon Designs - have any of the following text designs foil-printed on your ribbon instead of a custom logo.

Production Time & Shipping

Production Time - 5 working days from complete order (with the exception of items being pad printed)  for imprinted and unimprinted orders shipping to one location.  Complete order means: purchase order, artwork, proof approvals, enclosure cards, and shipping instructions.  Individual shipments to multiple addresses require 10 working days.  NOTE - these production time estimates do not include shipping transit times which vary based on distance from factory and shipping method selected.

Shipping Addresses - Please double-check all of your addresses prior to order submission.  Unfortunately, we must pass along address correction charges from UPS and FedEX that can run up to $15 per correction.  NOTE - UPS and Federal Express will not deliver to PO boxes and will not accept addresses with incorrect zip codes. While we are pleased to guarantee our products, we cannot guarantee or credit products lost, spoiled or returned because of inaccurate or incomplete shipping addresses.

Shipping Methods - We ship via UPS or FedEX ground, 2 day air or overnight air.  Due to the large shipping box sizes, air shipping costs can be exorbitant so we recommend shipping via ground whenever possible.  Your corporate gift specialist will provide estimated delivery dates and shipping costs.  The table below shows the estimated transit times for ground shipping from our Wisconsin factory.

Shipping to Multiple Addresses

We will gladly split and pack your custom gifts in specifically designed mailers or cushioned cartons, include greeting cards (see info below), and mark cartons with labels featuring your name or logo. Pricing for this service is $4 per location plus the standard delivery fee based on the weight of the item and location of each recipient. Your customer service representative can provide a custom shipping quote.

Note: If you need to ship items to multiple recipients at different addresses, please use our Corporate Order Form.

Greeting Cards

1) Enclosure of Customer Supplied Gift Cards

For your convenience, we can insert your Greeting Cards at no charge if all cards are the same and are provided with the order. Be sure to include 5 extra cards with your order.

Because of variations in gift size, we have a maximum card size that can be included with a given product.  Review the product description to see how large the gift cards can be.  The factory will use its best efforts to accomodate cards that exceed recommended dimensions, but folding and bending of cards may be required.

If cards must be matched to individual recipients or groups of recipients or if only certain packages get cards, the charge is $2.50 per card.  Or if cards must be enclosed in provided envelopes, the charge is $0.75 per card.

2) Stock Gift Cards

For extra convenience, we are happy to provide a variety of enclosure cards for your gifts. Your message (and logo, if you wish) is printed on the inside of the cards. Please limit your count for messages to 30 words without a logo or 15 words with a logo.

There is no additional charge when the message is identical on every card or $4 per card when custom messages are required on every card.

Cards are printed with black ink and the font is Times New Roman Italic.  Black & white logos can be included on the gift card at no charge. The logo will be placed toward the bottom of the card beneath your message.  The factory will use its best judgement for the layout of the text with the logo inside the card.  Proofs are sent on all layouts that are deemed questionable and order will be placed on hold until the proof is approved.

Please indicate which of the following 4 card designs you prefer to use with your order.

Order Changes & Additions

We do our best to accomodate changes and additions to orders, but unfortunately, orders shipping within 48 hours cannot be changed. Changes to orders already in production will result in delayed shipment and may incur additional charges. This includes changes to quantity, ship method, ship date, address(es), item or imprint. Please contact us as soon as you realize something needs to be changed so we can contact the factory to determine whether the change is possible.

Changes to orders already in production will result in delayed shipment. The possible charge for changing an order that is in production is $30 plus the cost of any work that must be redone. This includes changes in quantity, ship method, ship date, address, item or imprint.

Please note that an addition to the quantity can result in a less than minimum charge of $20 depending on the circumstances.  Pricing from the original order will be honored with the exception of promotional discount offers that have expired.

Product Perishability & Freshness

Natural cheeses and smoked meats need to be refrigerated within 24 hours of receipt. Note that we also offer shelf-stable (no refrigeration required) versions of many of our cheese gifts. Chocolates and nuts should be stored in a cool, dry place.  Baked goods should be enjoyed within 2 weeks, or stored in a freezer for up to three months.  Instructions for storage are included with each gift.



Please note that we do not accept returns on our Maple Ridge Farms food gifts due to perishability issues and local health regulations.  However if for some reason, you or your recipient's aren't happy with an item, please contact us immediately and our corporate gift specialist will work with you to resolve the situations.
