Greeting Card Rep Talks about Trends

At our annual Art Licensing Party in Berkeley, I interviewed Ginger McCleskey, a Greeting Card Sales Representative in the San Francisco Bay Area.

She talks about:
  • Mistakes Greeting Card Designers Make
  • Trends in the Card Industry
  • The Future of the Industry

Great information Ginger and Kate! The challenge the "digital age" poses is complex as Ginger stated. People love the instant-ness of Facebook, Twitter, and texting but they inherently know that a real greeting card means much more to the recipient.

Atomic Greetings (http://atomicgreetings.com) is bridging these two worlds by combining the real, tangible greeting card with personal and private digital video messaging.
