Wanted New Cards: Black Friday Shopping

November 12, 2015

GCU has added two new categories in need of cards.

Black Friday is the beginning of the official Christmas shopping season in the US. For many stores, it starts at midnight  November 26, Thanksgiving; other stores open at regular hours. Stores offer special deals and sales and many shoppers go in groups of family and friends. There’s a bit of a shopping frenzy, everyone looking for the very best deals! It’s estimated that in 2014, 133 million were out and about, stalking deals and having fun.

New categories:

Occasions >> Good Luck >> On Black Friday Shopping

Invitations >> Party by Theme >> Black Friday Shopping Party


We encourage artists to make cards to fill these two categories. These cards may be Fast Tracked and we encourage artists to make use of our Bigstock process. Information on Bigstock can be found here:

Artists should keep in mind that Black Friday is a day of shopping frenzy, with shoppers looking for special deals. It’s often done in groups of friends and family, and some shoppers get into the spirit of competition with much enthusiasm. More information about Black Friday can be found at Black Friday (shopping)

Remember, when you’re submitting your new card, add a little note about the intended category in your Notes to Reviewers – cards submitted for underused categories are much more likely to be approved provided they follow the Submission Guidelines. Be inventive,  be clever, be creative. Good luck!
