Greeting Card Designers and Writers
Greeting card designers and writers either work as freelancers or as staff members of greeting card and gift manufacturers. Designers use artistic skills to create illustrated or photographic images for cards, posters, mugs, and other items generally sold in card shops and on the Internet; writers compose the expressions, poems, and jokes that accompany the images. The Greeting Card Association estimates that there are approximately 3,000 large and small greeting card publishers in America.
