As members of the Greeting Card Association (GCA) Card Connection have once again supported the ‘Festive Friday’ initiative, which took place on Friday 1st December.
This is a special day for everyone in the card industry (and all lovers of cards) to send their Christmas cards and continuing to enjoy them as part of the seasonal decorations in their homes. Here at Farnham our post box was made ready early in November and staff were encouraged to bring in cards so they can be delivered to friends and family at the start of December. It is hoped that Festive Friday will create a great first wave of beautiful cards arriving in early December to get the nation in the Christmas card-sending mood especially with no price increase on 2nd class stamps!
We in the card industry need to lead by example – we asked everyone to write their cards in November, and also to work within their community to have cards ready to post by 1st December to start that first wave of card sending!
