Royal Mail will be supporting Thinking of You Week 2023 with a special postmark, which will be printed on all mail stamped and posted between September 18 and 24. The message will be: Send A Card, Deliver A Smile for Thinking of You Week.
Thinking of You Week is organised by the Greeting Card Association and sees people across the world send cards to friends, loved ones, work colleagues, neighbours to say hello, thinking of you, share a joke or just to reach out and connect.
Retailers signed up so far for this year’s event include Cardzone, Scribbler, Sainsburys, Tesco and Asda.
At PG Live last week, Amanda Fergusson, GCA CEO and Adriana Lovesy, marketing and membership coordinator, were busy getting the message across to the industry, handing out flyers encouraging retailers and suppliers to get involved.
Last year more than 1,000 retailers across the UK, plus many others in the US, Australia and New Zealand took part in this special week.
The GCA is encouraging early orders to ensure there is sufficient stock in store for September and to start planning activities to promote this occasion to your community.
One successful campaign from last year was the Schools Project for Thinking of You Week, which saw more than 6,000 of children in the UK and Ghana exchange cards. If you are interested in running a similar project for your local school contact email@example.com.
