And the Award Goes to.....Hopefully Us!!!

The Greeting Card Association has annouced the finalists for the best greeting card and stationery products of the past year. Out of the thousands of cards and invitations published each year, 168 made it to the final round of the 22nd Annual International Greeting Card Awards competition, better known as the "LOUIEs". Paper House has four - count 'em - FOUR nominations:

Row of Butterflies Blank Card

Peace Sign - Wreath Christmas Greeted Card

Easter Egg Chicks Greeted Card

Chicken Soup Get Well Card

The awards are named after German lithographer Louis Prang, who is credited with the birth of the U.S. card industry in the 1870's.

Winners will be revealed during this year's LOUIE celebration on Monday, May 17th, 2010 in New York City. (Basically the Oscars for the card industry, without the gowns!) This coincides with the National Stationery show being held May 16th - May 19th at the Jacob Javits Center also in New York City.

Paper House has won several LOUIE Awards, most recently in 2007 for our insanely cute Row of Bunnies Card!
So cross your fingers and toes for us! And make sure to keep coming back to check out more exciting news, projects and annoucements.
