We are doing for greeting cards what Netflix did for movies: Make card-buying easy by bringing the distribution online, simplifying the process with easy online tools and creating a gratifying user experience. -- Joel Wishkovsky Co-Founder, Card Gnome
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) June 02, 2011
Card Gnome, a Boulder, Colorado-based online greeting card company that features independent artists and personalized eco-friendly printed cards, is launching its “Try Us Out for Father’s Day” promotion. Card Gnome will deliver all cards in time for Father’s Day when they are ordered June 14th.
Card Gnome is a start-up company that launched in November 2010. They have been growing extremely rapidly by combining an easy to use online interface with a high-quality physical product. “Chad (Chad McGimpsey, Card Gnome Co-founder) and I have always been fascinated by the idea of bridging the gap between the digital and physical worlds,” said Joel Wishkovsky, Co-founder of Card Gnome.
Since its launch in November 2010, the company has signed licensing agreements with over 100 card companies and now offers a large selection of cards online with over 2000 unique designs. The company has been growing its sales 100% every two months since its launch.
Card Gnome offers the ease of online ordering, the satisfaction of personalization, and the simplicity of mailing the card straight to your loved ones. They remain dedicated to preserving the long-established tradition of sending and receiving real cards in the mail. Through their numerous artists and designers, Card Gnome has a large range of distinct card lines – from birthday to holiday greetings to anniversary and thank you cards, each of which can be personalized with a custom message. Card Gnome takes the casual simplicity of online buying and gives card buyers who do not have the time to shop in a retail card store the ability to send a greeting card for a special occasion.
Card Gnome cards are printed on recycled paper using organic inks and powered by 100% wind energy. The independent artists who produce the cards are also offered a unique profit-sharing opportunity not typically paid by major greeting card companies, so more of your purchase goes back to them. Because Card Gnome appreciates its community of talented artists, each one is prominently featured on the back of every card they have designed; keeping true to Card Gnome’s mission of building a sustainable organization that creates value for artists, customers, and employees, alike.
Card Gnome is aware that greeting card giving is a time-honored tradition that begs to catch up with our digital reality. Whether you want to express your love, gratitude, respect, or condolences; Card Gnome makes sending greeting cards easy and personal.
