The Henries Best Service finalists revealed

Indies vote in their droves for 2022’s top publishers on the service front


Independent retailers have been eagerly voting for which publishers pulled out the stops on the service front for them over the last year, to arrive at the finalists for the hotly-contested Henries’ Best Service To The Independent Retailer Award 2022.

The nomination process involved asking 1,750 independent greeting card retailers to submit their votes in a confidential online survey for the three card publishers they feel provided them with the best service over the past 12 months.

“The response has been incredible! Independent retailers are masters at providing a wonderful service to their customers but, to be able to do so, they in turn need to know they can rely on fabulous service from their card publisher suppliers,” commented Warren Lomax, director of Max Publishing, which owns and organises The Henries Awards.

“The Best Service To The Independent Retailer award category in The Henries is an indie’s chance to ensure these publisher service heroes receive their just rewards, and they have not been backwards in coming forwards to cast their votes for the publishers they feel have excelled on the service front over the last year.”

Without further ado, in alphabetical order, the Henries 2022 Best Service To The Independent Retailer Finalists are:

PrintAbacus Cards

The Art File

Dandelion Stationery

International Cards & Gifts (IC&G)

Nigel Quiney Publications

Noel Tatt

As in previous years there will be three trophies – for Bronze, Silver and Gold – for the Best Service To The Independent Retailer category which will be announced along with all winners of The Henries 2022 at a lavish awards event, the industry’s big night.

Taking place at The Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on Thursday, 6 October, 2022, The Henries 2022 awards event will be jumpin’, especially as it will take on an up-tempo 1950s theme this year!
