Cardmix finalists for THREE Henries Awards
The finalists for the premiere awards for the Greeting Card industry – the Henries – have now been announced and we are very happy to report Cardmix are have been nominated in THREE categories!
Our first finalist nomination is for our very popular new Sassafras range in the “Best Occasions or Relations Range” category.
Then, in the “Best Licensed Card Range” we’ve made the final listing with another new range Off The Leash by the very talented Rupert Fawcett.
Last, but by no means least, we are nominated for the prestigious “Henry Cole Classic Award” for our photographic Drama Queen range of humour cards.
The Henries (named after Sir Henry Cole who introduced the first commercially produced Christmas card over 160 years ago) were initiated by Max Publishing, who publish Progressive Greetings Worldwide magazine. The awards were introduced in 1996 as annual awards to highlight greeting card ranges.
The Henries Awards are the ultimate accolades in greeting card publishing, and each year around 15,000 cards are entered for consideration in the various categories.
The categories themselves cover every type of greeting card and also include special awards for promising new designers and artists and retailer service as well as special Henry Cole Classic and Lifetime Achievement awards.
Henries entries are judged by an extensive panel comprising top retail buyers from right across the retail spectrum from supermarkets and department stores to independents and online retailers.
The award winners will be announced at a special celebration in London on Thursday October 6th.
