Submit Ideas for Greeting Cards - Part 4

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.

Designer Greetings

Specific guidelines for writers, photographers and artists vary as we have many different card lines. We produce humorous and traditional cards as well as all holidays. We are always interested in new markets and new ideas.

Examples of some categories for photographers and artists:

•Humorous – Pets, animals and children

•Everyday – Florals, (both close up arrangements and natural settings), scenic views, pets, children, romantic compositions, baby room compositions, and some New York City scenes.

•Holidays – Christmas scenes or items, Jewish holiday items, Valentine’s Day items, Feminine/Masculine compositions for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

For artists:

We look for a polished, contemporary, professional style in mediums such as watercolor, pencil, airbrush and computer generated images.

For writers and artists:

All submissions should be accompanied with a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you would like them returned.

Please do not send electronic submissions; they will not be accepted.
Thank you for your interest in Designer Greetings.
