You KNOW You are a Greeting Card Designer When...


Here are my answers...What are YOURS? (Leave in comments below)




#1 You never run out of envelopes.



#2 You draw Easter eggs on Father's Day.






#3 "5x7" will never again mean multiplication problems or photograph sizes.





#4 Your relatives see your cards in a store, buy them, and then for some unknown reason, mail them back to you.





#5 Someone asks you for a deck of cards, and you go to the other room to get your card line.






#6 No one can exit your house without free samples.






#7 You forget to mail your own Christmas Cards.







#8 You can multiply any number by 12 while under the influence.





#9 People at parties tell you they want to quit their job and start a card business, because it sounds like a fun hobby.






#10 You spend 5 hours trying to think of witty words for the inside of a "Thank You" card, and finally realize the best words are "Thank You."

Love it! #2 is my favorite!
I have so many cards at home, all type or cards, I think I'll never run out of them... and I keep getting more.

You know you're a Greeting Card Designer when you know about the most obscure holidays and try to design cards for them

Judy Adamson said...

I really love the last one!!!

My offering would be: You know you're a Greeting Card designer 'when your offspring complain about how difficult it is for them to choose a birthday/Mother's day card for you!'

Wonderful!
We are packing to move and I am amazed just how many boxes of envelopes and cards I have, huge boxes full, some my work and others collected over the years because I can't resist a lovely card, paperholic, there must be a word of this:)
I agree with Judy, my son takes great pains to find just the right card for me!!

You know your're a greeting card designer when someone says something funny and unexpected, and you find yourself saying "I could use that on one of my cards!"

You know you are a greeting card designer when you forget to send your friends a birthday card

Bambi said...

You know you're a greeting card designer when you talk yourself out of giving your family birthday cards because you don't want to give them another one of yours and you didn't go buy new ones.
and...
you save each years in-coming Christmas cards and give a fake Emmy award for your favorite.

I would say you know you are a greeting card designer when, each and everytime you go to the mall, instead of seeing dresses and shoes(like most women)you cant wait to reach the greeting card store instead.and when you are in there you just cant resist,you start looking and you dont even realize it has been 3-4 hours!!!

You buy cards for relations you don't have, just so you can study the paper stock.

You know you are a car esigner when...receiving ANY card from family and friends, you spent more time inspecting the card, feeling the weight, looking to see were it is made, and weighing on a scale of 1-10 the sentiment made you feel!

You know you are greeting card designer when you love your card business so much that you would be willing to work day and night for free! (Well, for a long time, anyway!)

you know you're a greeting card designer when you automatically flip it over to see the particulars on the back side of the card. (I like to do this with dinnerware plates as well, but that's another blog! :)
