Become a Member

Our Association has a proud history. And we are especially pleased when new companies and young, innovative entrepreneurs join our ranks.

The GCA represents nearly 200 diverse businesses from the United States and around the world – ranging from young start-ups to established companies of all sizes, including suppliers that provide materials, services and product distribution at the wholesale level.

New companies need to do their homework, think long-term, and perhaps have a little luck, to achieve success. At the same time, established businesses need to reassess their offerings and explore new revenue-generating models to remain fresh and achieve success over time. GCA membership can be an important step in achieving that success. We help members explore a wide variety of topics, and keep up on the latest trends, in a friendly, creative environment.

Through member communications, industry data, information exchanges, educational conferences and mentoring opportunities, the GCA supports the companies and their professional staff who design, produce and distribute greeting cards.

Get started

The biggest reason I am a GCA member is because of the contacts that are made and the relationships that are formed. Events like our open Board meetings, committee work and our annual convention allow us to learn from other industry leaders, as we fight the important issues facing our industry together. There is also great value in the connections that are made with Associate members. They are valuable suppliers to us all.
