A Review of 2016 Corporate Greeting Cards

Jim Hamilton
 Jan 22, 2017

This is the seventh time that I have recorded a video blog review of all the corporate greeting cards I received during the holiday season. This year I highlight cards I received from three different types of providers: technology/systems, support services, and printing/marketing. In this video you’ll see premium substrates, dye cuts and folds to create structural pieces, dimensional effects and foils, as well as eye-catching design and innovative personalization techniques.

If you have an interesting greeting card you’d like to send me, my address is Jim Hamilton, Keypoint Intelligence/InfoTrends, 97 Libbey Industrial Parkway, Suite 300, Weymouth, Massachusetts 02189, USA

This is the sixth year that I have done a video blog review of all the corporate greeting cards I received during the holiday season. This year’s collection was a particularly good one, and at the end of the video I highlight five examples that I think are outstanding.

A Review of 2014 Corporate Greeting Cards

This is the fifth year that I have done a video blog review of all the corporate greeting cards I received during the holiday season. This year’s collection includes InfoTrends’ own corporate greeting card, which was designed by the winner of the 2014 EDSF Charlie Corr Memorial Scholarship, Jessica Baratta. Jessica is a graduate student at the Emily Carr University of Art & Design in Vancouver. We were also very fortunate to have Mohawk provide the paper for the card, which has a rich beautiful feel because of the Mohawk Superfine Eggshell 120 cover that it’s printed on.

This is the third year that I’ve done a review of all the corporate greeting cards I received during the holiday season. This year’s collection is an interesting mix of traditional metallics and embossing, innovative digital printing techniques, and unique substrates.

How Much Is “Free” Worth? $19.99

The e-card below (sender’s name obscured to protect the guilty party) got me thinking about what people are willing to part with in exchange for their private information, their buying intent, or an advertisement on a message sent to a friend.

 

I have a problem with e-cards in general, but adding an advertisement to a personal message couldn’t be more impersonal. I mean, just look at it. I like Snorg Tees, but come on, who wants their holiday greeting to come with an advertisement?
