Greetings Today magazine, giving you the bigger picture

Guess the buyer!

June issue out now and packed with big show preview, features, comment and insight – read online

WHAT type of buyer are you? The June issue of Greetings Today has a special fun feature by sales agents and regular columnists Neil Anthony and Alina Clark identifying the main buyers they meet regularly.

And they’ve found lots of lovely retailers who measure up to their description – read the piece on page 14 of the latest issue which is already available online and will be in the post to all our subscribers very shortly.
We also have a look back at the banging event that was PG Live, where Punjabi performers Drummers Delight certainly made everyone sit up and take notice as they performed to open the show and celebrate Davora’s 10th anniversary.
With so many publishers and suppliers at the successful event, we can’t fit all our pictures in the magazine so more are available on our Facebook page  – take a look to see if you were caught on camera!
There’s also our review of the summer design-led show Pulse as well as the New York events of the National Stationery Show and Surtex, again with more pictures on our Facebook page. 
This latest issue of the biggest circulation trade magazine for the greetings industry also contains our Humour Cards, Children’s Cards & Wrap, and Gifts For Card Shops features, as well as a pre-preview for Home & Gift Harrogate.
It’s packed with interesting comment and insight from retailers and publishers along with regular monthly columnists John Ryan, Henri Davis and Sarah Porter joining Neil Anthony and Alina Clark – Jo Barber will be back next month having completed the opening of her new specialise home and gift shop – plus there’s the distillation of the month’s industry news from the full coverage we carry on our website

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 6,089 July 1, 2013-June 30, 2014.
Remember, we do our best 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.
