2023 - December - Christmas Greeting Cards


As a writer, have you ever thought about the greeting card market? Here are a few statistics that I found interesting:

Revenue forecast for all greeting cards in 2023 is estimated at over 20 billion dollars. 

The traditional card segment accounted for 75.76% in 2022

The e-Card greeting cards segment is expected to grow at 4.2% during the forecast period from 2023-2030

According to the facts from the Greeting Card Association, Americans purchase an estimated 6.5 billion greeting cards each year

The average spending on greeting cards in the US is $29 per year.

Another statistic is that the average greeting card writer in the US earns $22.53 per hour. 

Then there are the independent crafters who make and sell their own greeting cards. Although I don't sell my greeting cards, I use my computer to generate the cards I make cards for my friends' and relatives' birthdays and the major holidays. I use my own photographs of flowers and scenery on the cover of the cards. I customize the words inside for the recipient. Although most of the time, I make up the inside greeting, sometimes I use quotes from famous people.

For you, my blog followers and readers, I send good wishes for your holiday season and —
