Louie Awards Finalists!

The Greeting Card Association just released the list of finalists for the 21st Annual LOUIE Awards! We are SO excited to announce that Paper House is nominated for 3 awards, in the following categories:

Christmas / Holiday / Seasonal ($3 & below)
Easter ($3 & below)
Valentine's Day ($3 & below)

According to the Greeting Card Associations' website:
"The LOUIE Awards represent the greeting card industry's highest honor for creative and publishing excellence.
Officially known as the International Greeting Card Awards Competition, the LOUIEs are named after Louis Prang, the German-born Boston lithographer credited with the birth of the U.S. Christmas card in the 1870s.
The  prestigious LOUIE awards recognize the most outstanding cards marketed in the U.S. during the previous calendar year. Sponsored by the Greeting Card Association, the competition is open to all domestic and foreign greeting card publishers.
The LOUIE award winners are announced each May at gala in New York City."
Last year, Paper House was announced as the LOUIE Award winner of the Easter ($3.00 & under) category for their cut-out greeting card "Bunnies." 

Wish us luck this year for the awards ceremony during the National Stationery Show!
