From the President
The holiday season is in full swing and our category looks spectacular at retail! In addition, according to the National Retail Federation, the holiday retail sales outlook is optimistic with expected year-over-year growth of 4.3 to 4.8%.
Ongoing USPS fiscal challenges have resulted in conflicting policies for greeting card mailers and support for our industry.
Thinking of You Week
We have two highly-active campaigns in place to build awareness leading up to next September’s Thinking of You Week!
And of course, we have the latest on Noted: the Greeting Card Expo.
