Categories of Greeting Cards

There are two categories of greeting cards. These are every day cards and seasonal cards. 

The top selling every day card is the birthday card which accounts for over half of the total sold. 

This is followed by wedding and anniversary, get well and sympathy, and friendship and encouragement cards. 

Top selling seasonal cards are Christmas and holidays cards. These account for more than 60 percent of all seasonal card sales. These are followed by Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Graduation cards. Again, these are average figures, therefore this might not reflect your range of handmade cards based on your customer requirements. This does, however, provide a good base to plan from when you are starting a handmade card business.
