The 2019 LOUIE Awards

Every year since 1988, the greeting card industry has come together to celebrate the best our industry has to offer. Hundreds of companies from around the world enter thousands of their best cards for the chance to win the coveted LOUIE Award. The entries will be judged by a collection of their peers and the finalists will be announced in late February. 

The “LOUIE Awards Celebration” is moving from downtown NYC to Brooklyn! Join us on Sunday, May 19 at 26 Bridge as we visit GCA’s own “speakeasy” and celebrate all of the winning cards in this year’s competition.
