Book Now for the Ladder Club 2017

19-20 September 2017

The Ladder Club was launched approaching 20 years ago by the much missed Lynn Tait of The Lynn Tait Gallery and Jakki Brown, joint general secretary of the GCA and editor of Progressive Greetings magazine. It's a non-profit making initiative to help would-be or fledgling greeting card publishers climb onto ‘the greeting card ‘ladder’.

Held once a year, there are now two separate day’s seminars. The first, Getting on the Ladder, is for absolute beginners and the other, Climbing the Ladder, is for publishers which have exhibited at least one trade fair and have an annual turnover of over £3k.

It is only possible to attend one day out of the two in a year.

Both seminars are packed full of essential information and feature a publishers, retailers, an agent and specialist suppliers including digital and litho printers, paper suppliers and GCA CEO, Sharon Little.

Held in Westcliff on Sea in Essex, the cost for each day including lunch is  £65 inc VAT. Publishers are encouraged to come up the evening before, stay over in local B&Bs and join the speakers at dinner to break the ice.

After attending the seminar, publishers then join the ‘club’ which is a peer to peer support network and facebook group.
