GCA’s Card Talk

Issue 55
June, 2020

Like many of us, the GCA has had to alter plans. The latest? The LOUIE Awards will be going virtual this year! But even though many events are going virtual, it’s important to stay connected with our greeting card community. Members and consumers know that sending greeting cards through the mail is always a great way to connect. Read about 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

Four months and a world-stopping virus later, I remain not only enthusiastic about the GCA, but more certain than ever of the relevance of greeting cards to today’s consumers, and of the importance of the GCA for our industry.
