Exposure and Visibility!


  • Get your cards seen - All submissions are reviewed by our judges panel that is made up of buyers, retailers, members of the press, sales reps and others looking for the best new cards in the industry.


  • Learn where you stand - Applicants will receive access to the final scores for each entry as well as any comments from judges.


  • Be a part of the NSS - Cards that advance to the finalist round will be prominently displayed at the LOUIEs display at The National Stationery Show. This large booth is in a high traffic area just outside of the exhibit hall and is visited by thousands of attendees throughout the show.


  • Have your cards immortalized in the LOUIEs program book - This sought after program is collected by gala and NSS attendees and then often taken back home after the show. Your finalist cards, complete with photos and company info will be front and center.


  • Go social - All finalist cards will be showcased on the LOUIEs and GCA social media accounts.


  • Get into inboxes - Finalists will also be highlighted in our weekly emails.


  • Live on forever - Images of all finalists and winners will remain archived on the GCA site.
