Save the date Just a Card – Indie Week 2021 22-26 November

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

JustJust+a+card+logo a Card – Indie Week is back! Now in its fifth year, Just a Card – Indie Week is about bringing the might of the Just a Card community together to shout from the rooftops about the importance of valuing and buying from artists, makers and independent shops and small businesses during the crucial Christmas period. An antidote to the fast-purchase culture of Black Friday, Just a Card – Indie Week is your chance to shine, your opportunity to celebrate and share your work, stories and communities, both on social media and in the wider world.

Last year's Just a Card – Indie Week saw over 55,000 independents take part and we can't wait to smash that number in 2021!

Everyone is warmly welcome to be a part of Just a Card – Indie Week, wherever you are in the world and whether you're an independent yourself or simply value and love them. During these challenging times the more we use our collective voice to raise awareness of how incredible independents are, the more everyone will benefit.

Here's how you can get involved:

  • Join in with the super popular JUST A CARD 5 DAY INSTAGRAM CHALLENGE.
  • Visit the page VISIBILITY FAIR to see the work of over 400 independents, and find out more about Visibility Fair.
  • Ensure you wear and display our ‘support independents' Christmas and Classic pins in your shops, at events and on social media.
  • Display and use the amazing resources including posters, online sale inserts, a web button and much more, all found in our Shop - everything you need to spread the SHOP INDEPENDENT message!.
  • Follow on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and share our posts and tweets far and wide.
  • Subscribe to our email newsletter for all the latest news and updates.
  • Tell the press - Download the JUST A CARD - INDIE WEEK Press Release and send it to every press/media outlet/contact you know. Please contact Roy ( for press enquires. Please feel free to speak to people on behalf of the campaign - it all helps get the message out there.
