We are looking for fresh and fun-looking artwork in any media and style. Also, sophisticated, funky cartoony-type art (people and/or animals) with or without words. Color work is best, but we will look at black and white. Overall, we're looking for exciting, innovative, clever, humorous, fun, and most important, original designs and ideas.

All work is speculative, so put your greeting cards ideas in rough sketch form. Be sure to include printed samples or tearsheets. If possible, you can provide us with a sample which we can keep on file for future assignments. Please indicate which ones we can keep. You will also need to include a stamped, self-addressed envelope large enough to accommodate the return of your artwork.

Our creative department often has concepts that call for a particular style. So even if you don't have specific greeting card ideas of your own, send us some samples of your work. Perhaps your style and our ideas will work well together.

The size of our cards is 5" x 7" and all artwork designed for us must match these requirements either exactly or proportionately. The cards are usually vertical and can be with or without a border.

And last but not least, payment. We negotiate payment with each artist depending on the complexity of the work. We look forward to reviewing your work!
