Greeting cards are an important piece of communication that people don't often utilize as much they can. This paper explores many aspects of these small paper cards including the looks of the current greeting card market, an average consumer's relationship to greeting cards, and how professionals create them. With technology and social media as a distraction, it can be more difficult to remember to send cards, and their great impact can be forgotten. The project got its origins after reflecting upon how much greeting cards have had an impact on my own life and wondering how they affect the lives of other people. All of the research leads up to an investigation and attempt to making a mark in this market. This includes the creation of a line of professionally printed cards designed to encourage the causal exchange of greeting cards with in the local community.
