The countdown is on! In just over a week’s time, the greeting card industry’s big ‘comeback party’ will be happening, with The Henries awards all set to recognise and reward the very best greeting card ranges in the UK, the most promising young designer as well as the top three publishers who have provided the best service to the independent retailer.
Taking place a week tomorrow (Thursday 7 October) at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London, The Henries will be attended by over 500 greeting card publishers, retailers and trade suppliers and will be hosted by the one and only Tom Allen.
Among the retailers who will be there to applaud the publishing excellence will be Cardzone, Clintons, Great British Garden Centres, Fortnum & Mason, House of Cards, JP Pozzi, Paperchase, Postmark, Scribbler, Tesco and WHSmith while all the leading trade suppliers, from paper companies to printers, envelope manufacturers to ecommerce maestros will be there too for the evening of celebration.

“After the 18 months that we have all endured, The Henries will be the party we all need and deserve,” stated Warren Lomax, joint managing director of Max Publishing, which owns and organises The Henries. “With Boogie Wonderland as the theme, the vibe will be super positive and fun. A great chance for everyone to really let their hair down.”
