Greeting cards are sent for a wide range of reasons; a birthday, to say thank you, to wish someone good health, to celebrate a birth or to offer support when someone dies and let us not forget the annual Christmas Card. Most cards are now sent with the use of the envelope; they come in all shapes and sizes and are produced through large publishing houses. But the Greeting card today isn’t just about the physical card; the advances in technology have opened the door to many other possibilities, for example the e-card, the app-card, email messaging and social media messaging. In a world where time is everything and instant gratification is paramount, has led to the popularity of communicating our feelings to one another using this new media. The earliest cards have been traced back to the ancient Chinese New Year greeting and the Egyptians who wrote their greetings using Papyrus scrolls. This social interaction has been going on for centuries and continues today in all shapes and form. But still the written message on a card is still as popular as ever, sales in the UK have overtaken the sales of tea and coffee combined with Christmas sales and everyday occasions being the biggest sellers today. The first Commercial Christmas card was invented by Sir Henry Cole in 1846 that through lack of time to personally handwrite his own Christmas cards employed an artist to design his Christmas card for him; this included an illustration and text. What remained from the collection was sold commercially for 6cts per card in a shop, recently a Christmas card to his grandmother sold for £22,500 at auction. He was the pioneer of the penny post and founder of the V&A Museum in London. Today in Holland there are over 8000 selling points for the Greeting Card and in 2005, Holland came in third place with “cards sent per head “. The internet industries are booming too with sales for big businesses such as Greetz, Vistaprint, Postnl, and Moonpig and let’s not forget Hallmark. Here they have diversified in their card ranges to produce the Photo Card, Pop-up card, app-card and cards with music alongside the traditional Greeting Card. Despite the strengths of these big names in the business, smaller companies (also known as Independent Traders) are growing too. Why are they growing in a time of recession and a time when the big names seem to have it all? They offer something unique, something that sets them apart from the mainstream, as a people we are always on the look-out for something that no-one else has yet and they offer this alternative to the consumer. Their popularity is also helped by the advances in technology, the socially active websites from Etsy, Pinterest, Facebook, Hyves,  Handmade Clubs and the local workshop have enabled the consumer to have a say,  to comment, to have an opinion about what a company is doing/designing and enables them to share their opinions freely and at the touch of a button. Within the Handmade sector Greeting card making is reported to be the Number 1 craft activity/hobby today. Does this suggest that we are tightening our financial belts or could it mean that we are finding ways of relieving out stress levels or could it mean that people are using technology intensively throughout the day that they need to revert to some form of handicraft to escape? But it’s not only card-making that is on the increase, knitting, sewing, crocheting and painting is increasing in popularity today.Cadeaushttp://www.cookycards.nl/c-1802137/cadeaus/Two great gift ideas now available at Cookycards.
