Greetings Today magazine, giving you the bigger picture

A licence for success

October issue is online now featuring I Like Birds, Danilo, Words ’n’ Wishes and Belly Button

I LIKE Birds have had a licence for success since they were one of the finalists in License This!, the competition which culminates at Brand Licensing Europe.

And in the October issue of Greetings Today, that's available to read online now, there’s a special focus on page 14 for the publishers-turned-brand who are now partnered with companies such as The Art File, Quadrille and My Gifts Trade.
Our cover stars are Danilo Promotions, who are celebrating the 40th anniversary of chairman and founder Laurence Prince’s kick-starting of the modern licensing industry, and we keep with the theme for Licensed Cards & Associated Products (p18), spotlighting Museums & Galleries, Cherry Orchard, and Redback Cards, as well as a focus on Words ’n’ Wishes.
Feminine-Themed & Mother’s Day is another feature showcasing Rosanna Rossi, Mint, Enveco and Paper Bird – and check out Spotlight where Belly Button Designs have a fab new releases well as the benefits of exhibiting at the perfectly-timed Harrogate Christmas & Gift Fair in mid-January (p9), plus find out what retailers found at both Autumn Fair and Top Drawer A/W18.
In Talk Of The Town (p36) retailers The Card Shop, Silverdale Stationers, Northwood Cards & Gifts, and Spirals Cards & Gifts share their thoughts and celebrations, while our regular columnists Sarah Ward (p42), John Ryan (p34), Henri Davis (p33), Ian Bradley (p40), Chris Fox (p47) and the Four Corners quartet (p51) have their say, as does guest writer Denise Laird (p38) on the rewards of awards.
