Greeting Card Designers and Writers
According to the Greeting Card Association (GCA), the greeting card industry's retail sales have increased steadily from $2.1 billion in 1980 to between $7 and $8 billion today. From designing animated e-mail messages to greeting card software programs, greeting card writers and designers will likely find more and more outlets for their work. Advances in Web technology should also aid the card designer in posting his or her ideas and images online to invite companies to browse, download, and purchase ideas.
