Festive Friday, 29th November 2019, is the special day for everyone in the card industry (and all lovers of cards) to send their personal Christmas cards.
This is to create a great first wave of beautiful cards arriving in early December to get the nation in the Christmas card-sending mood!
We have lots of ideas and a brilliant Festive Friday Toolkit (see below) to help inspire you to get creative and organise Christmas card-sending events in the lead up to or on the actual day itself!
Some ideas for taking part!
Change your Facebook and Twitter covers and email sign off images to Festive Friday ones in the lead up to the day – these are all in the toolkit below. And post lots of lovely pics on Instagram.
Donate some (old or new) Christmas cards to a good cause: contact your local school, play centre, an elderly people’s home, charity, hospital ward for elderly people or children, community centre or church group. Give them a lovely box of free Christmas cards, details of Festive Friday and a poster (see toolkit below) to help them to organise a Christmas card sending event on the day.
Organise a Festive Friday event at work. Get your staff together for an hour or two to write their Christmas cards, provide the cards and postage and send them all out on the day.
Take photos! Send them to me at email@example.com, post them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and remember to use the tag #sendacarddeliverasmile and tag us @GCAUK
And most important of all – just send lots of Christmas cards!
To help you we have lovely new toolkit imagery, with a banner, a flyer, a poster and social media banners.
Many thanks to The Art File for designing this for us.
