San Ramon, CA (PRWEB) June 13, 2012
After World War II, the unofficial observance of Father’s Day in the U.S. was established. Since 1972, when President Richard Nixon proclaimed it an official national holiday, Father’s Day has been celebrated on the third Sunday in June. Many countries around the world also observe a special day for fathers, though not all on the same date.
“The modern Father’s Day is about all different kinds of dads,” says Mindy Rosso-Gaemi, Community Manager at Greeting Card Universe. “Today the holiday celebrates many special relations in a person’s life who are fathers like husband, brother, boyfriend, grandfather, grandson, son, uncle, first time father, birth father, co-worker, coach, and many more.”
Greeting Card Universe offers a large variety of traditional and popular card designs for Father’s Day, but has fortified their collection with unconventional and non-traditional cards.
“We’re offering a collection of greeting cards to fit such unusual categories as My Two Dads or For Baby Daddy,” says Rosso-Gaemi, “as well as Across the Miles, Father’s Day Photo Cards, Birthday on Father’s Day, Like a Father to Me, Father to be, Estranged Father, In Remembrance of Father, From the Pet, and with themes like Sports for the sporty dad, Humor for the funny dad or Rivers/Lakes for the outdoorsy dad for example. Once shoppers discover the variety of Father’s Day cards available in our collection, they’ll never shop anywhere else.”
According to the Washington Business Journal, last year Americans spent an estimated $11 billion dollars on Father’s Day gifts. $1.4 billion was spent on greeting cards - the same as the amount spent on electronics and clothing.
“Shoppers can personalize the inside of all cards at Greeting Card Universe with their own text and photo,” adds Rosso-Gaemi, “adding a personal touch while enjoying the ease of ordering online. Additionally, custom greeting cards can be created within 48 hours at no additional cost by requesting changes or a totally new design from our artist community of over 5,100 freelance artists from around the world.”
Greeting Card Universe’s traditional and niche offerings of over 550,000 cards gives nod to the importance of choice and personalization in today’s marketplace and stays true to its tagline “any card imaginable.”
