The Art File takes home TWO Henry Awards!

8 October 2018

irstly, we would like to thank Jakki, Warren and the rest of the Progressive Greetings team for organising such a fantastic Henries Awards once more, each and every year the team continue to pull out all of the stops, really making the awards a very special occasion for our industry.

We’re absolutely delighted to announce that our Christmas Trio Box won the prestigious Henry award in the best Christmas Box Category on Thursday evening at The Henries awards in London! A brand-new format for 2018, these triple card boxes create wonderful displays in store. Each box contains 12 cards and is finished with hot foils and die cutting. We’re so happy that a new product to us has been recognised by the industry so quickly and positively.  We still have a small amount of stock left for re-orders!

Secondly- Ged Mace, our fearless leader and Managing Director picked up the lifetime achievement award on the evening, which was indeed a very pleasant surprise for both himself and The Art File team. Ged was recognised for his 35 year career in the Greeting Card industry, his contributions to the industry through his time on the GCA council, and as GCA President from 2015-2017. He was also recognised for the creation of The Art File 21 years ago (alongside his partner, Karen Mace), and how him and The Art File team have continued to forge success for the brand. Ged had this to say about receiving the award, ‘ I am absolutely thrilled to have been recognised for this prestigious award, and I very much look forward to continuing my work with The Art File and the industry for years to come.’

The Art File continues to design, produce and sell unique and original greeting cards, stationery, gifts and gift packaging to retailers worldwide. We love what we do, and we cannot do it without the inspirational design talent we are so fortunate to work with, our fantastic production team, and of course- our amazing customers.  Here’s to the next 21 years!
