Welcome New Member
We are pleased to welcome the following new member: Man Cards. Read about this new GCA member below and other new members in upcoming issues of Card Talk:
Man Cards was incorporated in April 2016 after realizing there is a distinct need in the marketplace for simple greeting cards than men won’t feel awkward receiving or sending. No cursive. No foliage. No GLITTER. I set a soft launch target date of early June in time for Father’s Day. Our initial launch included 25 card options only for Dads. Immediately after the holiday, we relaunched with Birthday, Graduation, Wedding, and Thank You cards. While working in Finance for a Fortune 50 company by day, our Man Cards Wingmen and I have managed to build a brand with over 100 card options, forge international and domestic strategic partnerships, and hire a team of sales reps to sell our brand in seven states…in under a year. We’re also in the final stages of launching our second brand – Shades on Point Sunglass Co. – a line of wooden sunglasses.
As a Financial professional with zero design experience, I had to build a network of artists and content creators. Freelancer sites like Fiverr were a huge help during this process. We’ve now had over 30 individuals in 16 different countries create content for Man Cards by writing copy, designing graphics, creating videos, animating, voiceover work, or photography.
We joined the GCA to join an amazing network! We’re constantly trying to learn the business, network, and market ourselves. We’re also always looking for constructive criticism and feedback, both of which the GCA can help provide.”
