Range Names Register

The GCA's Range Names Register is the only comprehensive database of greeting card range names in existence.

Although the register is unofficial and has no legal standing, it has become the first port of call for publishers needing to check if their proposed new range names are already in use. The register now has over 1500 entries and is growing by the day. There is no charge for GCA members to access the register or to enter new range names.

To check a range name send it to Sharon Little at gca@max-publishing.co.uk

If checking more than one name the best format to send them is as an unnumbered list in alphabetical order.

The register is not a replacement for the Register of Trademarks. The GCA advises that any proposed range names are also checked against the register of trademarks at the Intellectual Property Office under category 16 Paper Products, to ensure that no trademarks are infringed.
