Greeting Cards:

Greeting Cards A greeting card is an illustrated, folded card featuring an expression of friendship or other sentiment. Although greeting cards are usually given on special occasions such as Birthdays, Christmas or other  holidays , they are also sent to convey thanks or express other feeling. Greeting cards, usually packaged with an Envelope , come in a variety of styles. There are both mass-produced as well as handmade versions that are distributed by hundreds of companies large and small. While typically inexpensive, more elaborate cards with die-cuts or glued-on decorations may be more expensive.

The   Greeting Card Association  is an international trade   organization representing the interests of greeting card and stationery manufacturers. John Beemer, former president of the Greeting Card Association, says greeting cards are effective tools to communicate important feelings to people you care about: "Anyone feels great when they receive an unexpected card in the mail. For me, there’s nothing like a greeting card to send a special message. I’m proud to be a part of an industry that not only keeps people connected, but uses both imagery and the power of words to help us express our emotions .”
