“The UK greeting card industry leads the world on the design front and, as evidenced by the launches at PG Live last week publishers’ creativity is certainly on fire at the moment – so competition in The Henries is likely to be fierce this year!” commented Warren Lomax, joint managing director of Progressive Greetings, which owns and organises The Henries.

Entering The Henries is free and easy, with the categories spanning the whole entire publishing spectrum. To see the entry criteria and download an entry form, click here. Entries are open to all ranges, or extensions to ranges that have been launched since August 2017.

All entries will judged by an extensive panel of retail buyers from right across the retail spectrum including specialist multiples, leading independents, small groups, department store and garden centre buyers.

The winners will be announced on Thursday 4 October at the industry’s BIG night (held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London), which this year will take on a fun 80s Electric Dreams theme.

The Henries, which were started in 1996, are named after Sir Henry Cole who introduced the first ever commercial Christmas card over 160 years ago.
