Our supplier members play a key role in the industry, working with and advising publishers and retailers on various aspects of running their businesses. Britain leads the world in greeting card design and creativity. We spend £1.7bn a year on greeting cards, and export our cards all over the globe; our innovative supplier members play a key part helping us retain this leading position.

GCA supplier members are approved specialist suppliers who are recommended and usually already working with other members. As GCA members you will also benefit from our resources and discounts, and be invited to attend and participate in networking events that provide opportunities to build business relationships with other members, including greeting card publishers and retailers.

As a member you can promote your business on the GCA website, a key trade source.

The GCA will keep you up to date with pressing industry and business issues. We also compile an annual greeting card market report which is available to supplier members free of charge.

Membership of the GCA also helps us to continue to promote the importance of greeting cards to consumers, through the media and initiatives such as Thinking of You Week, ensuring that we continue to drive card sales and build a healthy industry.
