GCA’s Card Talk

Issue 54
April, 2020

Like many of us, the GCA has had to alter plans. *Noted & the LOUIE Awards will be a little different this year! Now more than ever, it’s important to roll with the changes, and remember what’s special about our community. And always remember that sending greeting cards through the mail is a great way to connect. Read about what’s coming, and what’s not. Plus read the latest member news, industry updates & more in this edition of Card Talk.

#BridgeSocialDistance

Card Talk is a GCA member newsletter, published six times per year, providing members and others with information on the latest trends and issues that might impact the industry and their businesses, as well as meaningful opportunities for information exchange and business development. Content for Card Talk comes from GCA leaders, volunteers, members and staff. Questions regarding the latest issue may be directed to our Communications Manager, Maggie Schultz.

From the President

As we work through the enormous effects of COVID-19 on our industry, our nation’s health and economy, and indeed the world, I encourage those of us who love our industry to remind everyone that greeting cards can provide the connection that bridges the social distancing this awful disease is necessitating.
