Festive Friday - Friday 28 November 2014

A GCA initiative promoting team spirit and festive spirit in one glittery blow!

Join us for the 2nd annual Festive Friday! This is the special day for everyone in the greeting card industry to dedicate an hour (or two) to writing and sending their personal Christmas cards and get the Christmas sending season started with a bang!

We want everyone to join in - publishers, suppliers, retailers and everyone’s staff - sending Christmas cards to friends and family on this special day. 

Last year’s event was a huge success with thousands of Christmas cards being sent. We created our sparky snowstorm of lovely cards dropping through the nation’s letterboxes in the first week of December encouraging the whole country to get in the festive card- sending mood!

We have developed a special toolkit (see below) containing: a beautiful new Festive Friday flyer, event template posters (in A4 and A3 sizes) a Festive Friday banner, email sign offs and a Facebook cover photo.

We also have a special poster for retailers to help promote Festive Friday to their customers as an early Christmas sending event.

The posters have plenty of space for you to add details of what your company is doing.

These are all free to download here:

We also have these available as pdfs if you should need them.

Feel free to dress up and post photos of your fun Festive Friday event on our Facebook page - we’re awarding a prize for the most fun photo!

With 100,000 people working directly and indirectly in this industry, we have the potential to really get things moving.
We also have science on our side! Scientific research has proven that the sending and receiving of cards is good for you, making people feel cared for, appreciated, happier and mentally healthier!

A huge thank you goes to The Art File design team for all their work on our lovely toolkit!

Good luck and happy card sending on Festive Friday 28th November!
