GCA Birthday Club
The GCA Birthday Club was born to allow our community to celebrate each other in snail mail every trip around the sun. After all, most of us have already carefully crafted product to celebrate birthdays, why don’t we showcase these more within our community? As such, the GCA Birthday Club will also offer members a valuable opportunity to use, understand, and better experience our medium of choice. So let’s sharpen our card-sending game as we celebrate every member’s special day!
