Wishes Nominated in the Greeting Card ‘Oscars’
We are delighted to announce that our Wishes greeting card range has been nominated for Best Traditional Words and Sentiments Range at The Henries 2016.
Over 40 top greeting card retailer buyers gave careful consideration to over 14,000 greeting card and wrap designs to arrive at the finalists for The Henries 2016 greeting card awards.
“The Henries are the ultimate accolades for the UK greeting card industry. Their stature relies on high quality entries and a judging panel and process with total integrity,” said Jakki Brown, editor of Progressive Greetings, which organises and owns The Henries, at the start of the judging day on August 3. “The entry level this year was stupendous and the judging panel was a real ‘who’s who’ of card retailing.”
An astonishing 14,000 cards were entered into this year’s Henries, across the 19 different product categories. Entering was free of charge and all cards and giftwrap samples were presented ‘blind’ without the publishers’ names.
This year’s impressive Judging Panel comprised over 40 top retailers, including buyers from Paperchase, John Lewis, Scribbler, Waterstones, WHSmith, Tesco, Fenwick, Clintons, National Trust, Longacres Garden Centre, Funky Pigeon, Frosts, Moonpig as well as many leading independents.
The winners will be announced at the Henries Ball on Thursday 6th October at The Lancaster London Hotel.
