Greeting card resources.
GREETINGS CARDS - "Listen again". In
Britain we send more greetings cards per head than any other country in the
world. Even more than in America where they invented Fathers' Day after the war
and the more recent 'Personal Administrative Assistants' Day' which is in the
process of replacing the less politically correct 'Secretaries' Day'.
There, the market is the biggest in the world by sheer numbers, but only 48
cards are sent per head compared with our 53.
Our market is worth £1.5 billion a year, and we spend more on cards that we do on tea and coffee. And it was in the UK that the industry was born 150 yrs ago by the man who was responsible for the penny post - Sir Henry Cole.

Tennyson, when he was the poet laureate, was reportedly offered one thousand pounds if he'd compose a thirty line verse for a card manufacturer. He sniffily turned it down and it's still true that greeting card messages, from the penny dreadfuls and the "Rude and Crudes" in Victorian times to the sometimes schmaltzy, sugary doggerel today, can still curl the toes.
