Please send us your News stories and jpegs of cards for our Gallery to feature on our Thinking of You Week website and take advantage of all the activity planning for this year.
Thinking of You Week 2022 is 19th-25th September. We already have key retailers and Royal Mail signed up to join in, in addition we are planning lots of consumer PR activity. This means that lots of consumers are going to be googling to find out what it is all about – and visit our Thinking of You Week website .
We want to use this to encourage everyone to send cards and also to promote your businesses and help raise your brand profile and hopefully send customers to your website.
Thinking of You Week takes place in September every year. This event is designed to harness the emotional power of cards, to create a wave of love, caring and happiness, by encouraging everyone to send cards to different people during the week, just to say ‘hello’ share a joke, ‘thinking of you’.
Paper Salad kindly designed wonderful branding for this event, which retailers across the UK use to shout about the event to their customers, encouraging card sales and sending people to our Thinking of You Week website to see what it’s all about. Royal Mail and others work with us to support this activity through consumer PR and social media.
Launched in 2014 by the UK GCA Thinking of You Week has now spread to other countries such as the USA and Australia, who have their own websites, but use our branding.
