Nominate your top card publishers for The Henries

Retailer votes count for 2022’s Best Service To The Independent award


Your votes really count – if you want your best publishers to have their great service recognised with a Henries award!

Nominations are already coming in from independent card retailers for The Henries 2022 Best Service Award so, if you’re an indie yourself and want to make sure the card companies you think are tops when it comes to service are on the list, you have until 31 July to register your votes by clicking here.

As a retailer in these testing times, you are a master at providing a service to customers yourself – but which of your greeting card suppliers have provided you with the best service in the last year?
“We would really appreciate it, if you could just spare some time to nominate your top three suppliers in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place,” said Warren Lomax, Progressive Greetings co-owner and director of Max Publishing which owns and organises The Henries.
“Help us recognise and reward those publishers who are helping your business! It will only take you a couple of minutes – go on, do it now, I’m sure you know off the top of your head who are the best! Never fear, your nominations will remain fully confidential.”

IC&G has reigned supreme for the past six years, winning Gold each time, with Woodmansterne, UK Greetings, and Noel Tatt sharing the silver and bronze awards between them – but which companies have excelled over the last year?

Once you submit your nominations that’s all you have to do, the collective votes will be counted, and the finalists will be announced in mid-August while the winners of the Bronze, Silver and Gold trophies for this prestigious award category will be revealed at The Henries Awards Ball on Thursday, 6 October.
