Greeting Cards & Other Publishing in Canada
Over the five years to 2019, operators in the Greeting Cards and Other Publishing industry in Canada have grappled with the advent of paperless substitutes, which have rendered some industry products obsolete. Consumers' growing use of e-cards, or electronic greeting cards, has constrained demand for traditional greeting cards and postcards. The average retail price for greeting cards has declined, which can be partly attributed to many consumers purchasing greeting cards at discount or dollar stores. In response, many greeting card publishers have developed a market niche by catering to French-speaking individuals. Over the five years to 2024, the industry will likely continue to struggle to generate revenue due to mounting external competition. As more consumers connect to the internet, they will become increasingly likely to purchase e-cards and use virtual calendars and planners.
This industry publishes greeting cards in print and electronic form. Some companies also publish products such as postcards, colouring books, yearbooks and more. Operators do not publish newspapers, magazines, books, directories, maps, atlases, databases and music.
