A new company uses art to express what many feel. With greeting cards that state: 'Nothing says drop dead like a NeilsNotes!' Or a motto like: 'When you want to tell them what you really think!' There is good reason to look this company over and see why there is truly something here for everyone.

A new company uses art to express what many feel. Artist and entrepreneur, Neil Notes debuted a new site offering hundreds of his unusual greeting cards, which he bills as "The World's Greatest Greeting Cards -- When you want to tell them what you really think!"

With advertising copy that states: 'Nothing says drop dead like a NeilsNotes!' Or a motto like: 'When you want to tell them what you really think!' Some are outrageous, others hilarious, some depict adult topics, and some may offend, but all are thought provoking. Love it or hate is the new Hot Spot on the Internet attracting over 600,000 unique guests per day.

A recent British movie depicting the fictional assassination of President George Bush seems to have outraged almost every journalist on cable television. Apart from whatever artistic merit the film may posses, commentators appear to stand shoulder to shoulder in their belief that such ideas alone amount to terrorism and treason.

While such arguments may have strong merit and are supported by millions of Americans, others worry that a climate of tight censorship may be well underway. "Everywhere you go, people feel they simply can't afford to express the more outrageous or creative of their views," says Notes.

"So many ideas aren't getting expressed these days. If you have an ounce of creativity or a healthy sense of humor, you may feel like you have to constantly censor yourself to stay out of hot water with the people you work with or even the government," says Notes.

One of the most controversial areas of the NeilsNotes site is a section titled "Politicize This!" Cards depict topics ranging from the 1960's Johnson Administration, to Nixon, to the JFK assassination to wry jabs for those who've had enough of George W. Bush.

"Yes, the criticism can be biting, but that's exactly why people seem to love this site." The vast majority of feedback has been very positive for this product as people seem to be taking them in the light in which they are intended. 'Refreshing, original and long overdue,' wrote one fan.

Exponential growth in sales would indicate that has hit a sweet spot with the card buying consumer.

"These are the kinds of ideas millions of people are thinking to themselves, but don't see reflected in our current public discourse," Notes said.

Other greeting cards at NeilsNotes include Axe The Ex, Jail Bait (know somebody in prison?), Coming Out (of the closet), and cards to improve Military morale. Along with very fresh takes on usual topics like: Birthday, Business, Cheer Up (my friend) and various holidays.

Currently the cards are priced as low as $2.95 with discounts for multiple cards. Visit the site for more information and easy, secure ordering at:
