The Henries 2021 Winners Revealed

The winners of The Henries 2021 greeting card industry awards were announced this evening (Thursday 7 October) at a fabulous awards event, held at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London, hosted by comedian Tom Allen.

The industry’s big ‘comeback party’ event, which this year took on a Boogie Wonderland theme, was attended by over 500 members of the greeting card community who shared in the joy as the publishers of the UK’s most innovative greeting card ranges and suppliers who had gone the extra mile on service made their way to the stage to be crowned as winners.

Organised by Progressive Greetings, The Henries are accepted as the ultimate accolades in the greeting card industry. Friends and colleagues were thrilled to be part of the first big awards bash for two years, following the industry’s reunion at PG Live exhibition in July.

“We all deserve a great party after what has been a truly a torrid 20 months that have been brutal for all of us, both professionally and personally,” said Jakki Brown, co-owner of The Henries in her welcome speech. “That said, the resilience, passion and innovation of the UK greeting card community is here for all to see in the stunning finalists and winners.”

The emotionally uplifting grand finale was the presentation of Honorary Achievement Award, which was presented to Paul Taylor, co-founder and managing director of specialist greeting card retail group, Cardzone.
