The Gallery Collection is pleased to announce a donation of 900 birthday cards and 1000 Thank You cards to Camp Quality USA. Camp Quality serves children with cancer and their families by providing year-round programs, experiences, and companionship at no cost. Camp Quality promotes hope and inspiration while helping children foster life skills and develop their full potential.
Camp Quality USA has existed in the United States for nearly 30 years. Originating in Australia, Camp Quality got its name when a doctor commented that while we can’t impact the quantity of someone’s life, everyone can improve the quality of another person’s life. With a week long residential camp for children with cancer as its hallmark annual event, Camp Quality grew into an organization that spread to several countries. From a single week of camp for 43 children in Northwest Missouri 28 years ago, Camp Quality USA now serves 900 children each summer at 16 camp locations in 12 states, and provides year round events for those children and more, as well as their families.
The greeting card donation provided by The Gallery Collection has been shared with Camp Quality USA local organizations for their use in sending birthday cards to campers and thank you cards to volunteers.

The Gallery Collection would like to give thanks to all members of our armed services on this Veterans Day. We appreciate your dedication and your service.
The work that the members of our armed services do is important to all of us. This is why The Gallery Collection works with organizations such as Operation Gratitude and Soldiers’ Angels, who create care packages for deployed military and have other programs that help our servicemen and women.
Along with the donations we’ve made to these organizations, we also offer a chance for you to help just by purchasing cards! When you’ve made a purchase you can use promo code LHEYC for Operation Gratitude, or promo code LHFYC for Soldiers’ Angels, and 10% of your order total will be donated to the organization of your choosing!
Sending out religious Christmas cards can be a gamble. When you are sending holiday cards for business it is usually best to be more generic and include everyone. “Season’s Greetings” and “Happy Holidays” are the sentiments normally sent out , especially for corporate cards. It is understandable, especially for businesses, that the sender would not want to offend any of their recipients.
But when it comes to personalized Christmas cards, I think most people are aware that Christmas is a religious holiday, and sending out a religious card is an acceptable way to recognize it. In fact, sending out a religious card, or at least one that actually mentions Christmas, is perfectly acceptable for those of you that want to share your holiday greetings with friends and family alike. If someone sends you a card for a holiday you don’t celebrate, it is not meant to insult, but rather to simply share the spirit of the season. Picture yourself receiving a card from someone wishing you a “Happy (insert holiday you don’t celebrate)”! Your reaction would probably be less “How dare they!” and more “That was nice of them to think of me.” So if you come across a lovely religious Christmas card that you would love to send and share, chances are the recipient will be happy to share the spirit in which it was sent.
The Gallery Collection is proud to announce a 4,000 holiday card donation to Canines for Disabled Kids. CDK is an education/advocacy group that educates the public about assistance dogs, and assists families in determining if a service dog is the right tool for their child.
Jozsi, the resident demonstration service dog for CDK, loves The Gallery Collection holiday cards!
CDK helps families select the best training program to serve their child’s needs, as well as assist with the application process. Canines for Disabled Kids also provide scholarships to offset the cost of dogs for children 18 and under, as well as advocacy work for all working service dog teams. They are often seen in schools or at civic groups educating interested parties about service dogs, how they are trained, and the multitude of ways they can help mitigate disabilities.
As a non-fee for service program that works nationwide, the 4,000 holiday card donation from The Gallery Collection will allow Canines for Disabled Kids to send warm holiday greetings and thanks to all of their supporters.

I remember when I began with what was, at that time, a “start up company” during the summer of 2004. Since our company was so new we were continuously working on smoothing out the bumps along the road and getting into the swing of things. Of course, we were super busy especially being that we were getting near to the end of the year closing. My co-workers and I became very close since it was the same group of us working together on most of the projects from the inception of the company. During one of our group lunches back in October 2004 we were discussing what we could do to show our gratitude to our clients and vendors for closing the end of the year successfully. We came to the conclusion on sending out business holiday cards as a thank you for doing business with our fairly new company. We decided to use The Gallery Collection as they had such a variety at such great prices. When we received our first order, I remember we could not believe the quality of the card and how thick the cardstock was.
It is now 2013 and our company is even busier than when we started. It has now become our company’s tradition to send out corporate Christmas cards from The Gallery Collection every year. Our longtime clients enjoy reading them as they are a reminder of how long we have been in business together since 2004. As for our newer clients, the feedback on the cards has been nothing but grateful and positive. Our holiday cards are also a reminder to us as it symbolizes just how far we come since that summer when we started. The Gallery Collection will always be synonymous with our company since they were there from the beginning. Cheers!
As part of The Gallery Collection’s charitable donation program, we recently donated 200 Thank You cards to Hannah & Friends. The mission of Hannah & Friends is to improve the quality of life for children and adults with special needs.
Maura and Charlie Weis founded Hannah & Friends in 2003, in honor of their daughter Hannah. They provide assistance and support through residential homes, day programs, summer camps, and Hannah’s Helping Hand Grants.
Hannah’s Helping Hands funds quality of life grants for Kansas, Kansas City Metropolitan area, Florida, Indiana, including the greater Michiana area, New York, and Rhode Island families that care for children and adults with special needs. The grants provide low and moderate-income families with stipends that may be used for a wide variety of supports related to their family member.
Hannah & Friends will be using their Thank You cards from The Gallery Collection to thank supporters, donors and volunteers. If you’d like more information on how you can help, visit www.hannahandfriends.org.
Ordering Christmas cards used to give me a stomachache. There, I said it.
As an office manager for a small plumbing company, it should have been one of my more pleasant tasks, but it was not. It would remind me of all the tasks that would be coming my way, both at work, and at home. You know what I mean. It’s that snowball effect: if it’s time to order Christmas cards, then it’s time to think about updating the mailing list, shopping for gifts, and wrapping and cooking, and on and on.
I agree with my boss that sending out business Christmas cards is a great way to keep in touch with our customers, and let them know they are important to us. Easy for her to say, she just has to say “Isn’t it time to think about ordering cards?” And guess who does all the work?
Recently, when the Gallery Collection catalog came, I made a conscious decision that this year would be different. I made myself a cup of coffee and sat down with the beautiful catalog to pick out several design options. It was hard to narrow it down because when it comes to cards, the Gallery Collection catalog has so many options. They really are gorgeous cards and the best part is that I know when I place my order I will be receiving a quality product , and I can cross one thing off of my long to-do list!
Halloween is almost here and that means one thing; the holidays are just around the corner! When we think of the holiday season there are many things that come to mind: snowmen, getting together with friends and family, the smell pies baking, and of course, holiday cards! Holiday cards help us remind people, especially those we do not see everyday, that we are still thinking of them.
This is precisely why Christmas cards for business have become so popular. Sending cards to clients and customers is the perfect way to remind them how much you value their business. As an administrative assistant, I am usually the point of communication between the company I work for and any services we need, and I always feel appreciated when I receive a holiday card from one of the companies we’ve worked with. Not to mention, they are usually the first ones I remember when I need to use that service again.
Last year, I suggested to my supervisor that we should send out our own business Christmas cards and he loved the idea! Although what he loved even more was how many of our customers mentioned how happy they were to receive them and how it really made them feel like we took a personal interest in their business. I definitely started a new tradition at our company; he’s already having me research the designs for this year’s card!
