Greetings Today magazine, giving you the bigger picture

Meet the new editor

September Greetings Today issue online now – say hello to Rachel King and send your October copy now

RACHEL King is the big news at Greetings Today this month – you can meet the new editor of the magazine on the Leader page of the September issue that’s available online now.
Rachel can be contacted at and is taking over from Tracey Bearton, who has been at the mag since 2012 and is stepping down for a quieter life.
For the September issue we have Licensed Cards & Associated Products as the big feature on page 18 with Museums & Galleries, Pyramid International and Ardea, and cover stars Danilo are talking about their latest licences too (p16).
Animal Cards (p30) sees Kali Stileman, Eco-Friendly Card Co, Mint, Dandelion Stationery and Flying Teaspoons, unveil their designs, while Spotlight (p6) includes Leonard Smith, Enveco, and Simon Elvin.
Check out what happened at Autumn Fair in the review (p28) and find out why you should go to Insights-X (p14), the up-and-coming German stationery expo which runs in Nuremberg over October 9-12.
Don't forget you can read the monthly words of wisdom from our regular columnists John Ryan (p12), Henri Davis (p24), Four Corners retailers (p36), Ian Bradley in It’s All About Sales (p37), Ward’s Words (p38) and there are this month’s Talk of the Town (p26) contributors Natalie Marshall at the Card Cabin, Denton, Gtr Manchester, Kathy Starr from Gifted, Thaxted, Essex and Gill and Peter Dalliday of Mackies in Downham Market, Norfolk.
Now then – who wants to get naked with us?! We’re always looking ahead here at Greetings Today and with the drive to get rid of single-use plastic, publishers are finding ever more ingenious ways such as naked cards, Windles’ Kard Klasp and M&G’s corner banding, we’re planning a feature in our October issue to talk about the issue from all perspectives.
To get involved in this exciting venture please contact advertising manager Simon Davis on 01442 289930, or
For everything else in our October issue you can let buyers and indie retailers know what you have to offer by appearing in Greetings Today, the largest circulation trade magazine for the greetings industry.
