Submit Ideas for Greeting Cards - Part 3

Do you have what it takes to write funny lines, romantic anecdotes, or cutting humour? Or are you just one of those people who always has a joke on someone else? Well, maybe writing for greeting card companies is down your alley... Here's a list of places to submit to. Remember, this type of work is hit and miss. Only a small percentage of submissions get through.

Smart Alex

Smart Alex welcomes submissions from artists, photographers and writers who share Smart Alex's philosophy of keeping greeting cards strictly, "funny, edgy & risqué". This type of material is our specialty, our niche, which is what we are known for the greeting card industry, we DO NOT deviate from this format. If your work obviously falls out of our parameters, please do not submit.

Please get yourself acquainted with our Smart Alex's sense of humor (see), as you can see through our large selections, it should be apparent the type of greeting cards that we publish. If your work style is consistent with our Smart Alex's publishing strategy, your work can be submitted as finished, a working model, or in conceptual form. Our only requirement is that the subject matter be humorous.

Freedom Greetings

Freedom was founded in 1969 and was one of the first in the social expression industry to recognize a need for the African American market.

We have grown from our humble beginnings and are now considered to be on the leading edge of manufacturers in nearly every trend in the Traditional and Contemporary greeting card marketplace

We will consider all material, however, our current needs include contemporary humor for the Cheers line and contemporary, sophisticated messages for Cappuccino and DeCaf lines.

Witty humor is always in demand! Cute remarks, silly puns, clever quips, double entendres and simple visual gags all have their place within Papyrus humorous division. However, we tend to avoid off-color and sophomoric humor.
