On Thursday 7th October, the Henries Awards 2021 took place, with greetings card publishers from all over the UK making their way to The Royal Lancaster Hotel in London for the Boogie Wonderland themed celebration.
We are delighted to share that of the 4 categories in which we received nominations, we won Henries awards for ‘Best Service to the Independent Retailer’ and ‘Best Traditional Words and Sentiments’.
Having been nominated for the ‘Best Service to the Independent Retailer’ for the 11th consecutive year, the pressure was on to secure another win of this extremely prestigious award and so we were thrilled to take home the Bronze, once again!
Darren Cave, Commercial Director comments “We’re incredibly proud to receive an award in the best service category. This is a fantastic achievement by the many UKG colleagues who worked so hard to service retail during an incredibly challenging year. It’s really fantastic to be recognised by our customers in this way and I’d like to thank all who voted.”
We are also extremely proud to share our success in the ‘Best Traditional Words and Sentiments’ category with our beautiful ‘Helen Steiner Rice’ range.
Here is what Creative Director, Frances Billington had to say about the win: “I’m so proud that the ‘new look’ Helen Steiner Rice range has won a Henry, it’s a great accolade for one of UKG’s sentiment ranges and well-deserved recognition for the Editorial and Design teams”.
Congratulations to all those who were successful within their categories and a massive Thank You to all those who took the time to vote for us!
