Still Frustrated.

Once again, the greeting card frustration happens. It just so happens that today is my anniversary. I went shopping the other day to pick out a card. There on the stand was the perfect anniversary card ever for Bob and I. However, I opened it up and what did it say inside? “Happy Anniversary to my Husband”! Damn. What do you think I did? I purchased it anyway. Oh well. It still fits (minus the husband thing). Anyway, after doing some research online I found another cool company for cards, Hello! Lucky.  They also have cool wrapping paper also.

Greeting Cards . . . ugh.

I came to the realization today that it’s just a disaster for me to go shopping for greeting cards. Being a designer, 99.9% of the time, I do not even read what the card says before I skip over to the next one. If the front is ugly, I don’t even open the card at all. I always judge the design by the cover, sad but true.

I was in a local greeting card shop the other day, and left the store empty handed. All the designs were cheesy, along with sappy rhymes. Yuck. Is it too much for clean, simple design? Not with a million hearts on the cover either. I hate hearts . . .  well, most of the time.

Anyway, here are a few of my favorite greeting card resources. Obviously if you wait until the last minute, these might be tough to fine locally, but buy now and give later! (Some advice I should use myself, right?)

The Paper Source has extraordinary greeting cards for all occasions. Very unique, some are handmade, but all are totally awesome. Smudge Ink has pretty snazzy designs as well which can be purchased online. Specialty Cards 4 U makes these adorable paper dress cards! Three Potato Four, another wonderful site, has great paper goods. Not only great greeting cards, but unique housewares, prints and much more!
