Greetings Today magazine, giving you the bigger picture

New perspectives

For January we view Windles from a different angle plus there’s Top Drawer Spring, Bestsellers & Trends, Christmas Cards & Wrap – and you might just squeeze into February Spring Fair Preview if you hurry!

WITH THE new year looming, the January issue of Greetings Today takes a different perspective on the opening trade shows of the upcoming season, especially Top Drawer Spring.

Even though we haven’t quite finished this festive season, the latest magazine – which will shortly be available to read online and is in the post now – also features Christmas Cards & Wrap 2016 (page 43), and there’s some interesting insights with Bestsellers & Trends (page 17).
The fun and frivolity of Festive Friday is captured in pictures (page 49) with more pics on our Facebook page while Autism Friendly Birthday Greetings UK prove that cards really do bring happiness (page 27).
With our latest audited ABC figures showing 6,086 subscribers, this issue of the biggest-circulation trade magazine for the greetings industry also takes a look at cover stars RetroCo (page 24) and there’s a new perspective on Meet The Newbies sponsors Windles Group.
As always, the mag is packed with interesting comment and insight from retailers, publishers and our regular columnists Henri Davis, John Ryan, Neil Anthony and Alina Clark, plus there’s the distillation of the month’s industry news from the full coverage we carry on our website
When one issue is completed, we have to move straight on to the next Greetings Today magazine, and the upcoming months see these features planned:

February (technically the editorial deadline has passed but if you send copy and images before Christmas we’ll do our best to include you)
Paperworld Preview (Jan 30-Feb 2)
Spring Fair Preview (Feb 7-11)

March (editorial deadline February 12)
Male & Father’s Day Cards
Wedding & Anniversary Cards

April (editorial deadline March 3)
British Craft Trade Fair Preview (Apr 10-12)
London Stationery Show Preview (Apr 26-27)
Giftwrap, Bags & Accessories
Retro, Vintage & Nostalgia Cards

If you’d like more than 5,000 retailers, both independents and multiples, to discover your products then the place to be seen is the only independently-audited trade magazine for the greetings industry, which is also the one with the largest circulation – ABC figures 6,086 July 1, 2014-June 30, 2015.
Remember, we try to include as many publishers as possible to give retailers the best and most comprehensive information although priority has to be given to advertisers who support the magazine so are guaranteed editorial coverage although.
We also love to hear all publisher and retailer news, so if you’ve staff changes, charity events, or anything you’d like to tell the rest of the greetings industry about, tell Greetings Today first and we can include it on our regular email newsflash service as well as in the print and online versions.
