Success Stories

Greeting Card Design

Meet Rick Redznak

Lettering Artist + Greeting Card Designer

Hi there! My name is Rick Redznak I’m a Brooklyn NY designer that enjoys making digitized lettering cards. My cards are colorful, script-style most of the time, and have words of encouragement. 

Tell us your story:

As I walk around Brooklyn, I see so many places that I could sell cards at. This past month I have been selling my cards at a wine store down the street. I went into the wine store and saw no greeting cards were there, then approached the owner and told her what I do and she was really into it. Sometimes you need to look at different locations to find a space. I try to avoid places that are overcrowded with greeting cards.

Meet Daksha Giri

I am a Freelance Illustrator, Lettering Artist and Greeting Card Designer from Thane, India. I am self-taught since 3 years. Art is like therapy to me and I hope to spread happiness through my art in this world!

Tell us your story:

I applied to a greeting card company in December 2020 and didn’t get the gig. Later in February 2021, I took Threeologie’s Greeting Cards Course 101 and 8 weeks later, I reapplied to the same company and got a contract with them! With a ready portfolio, I got my biggest greeting card gig for $500 as well! Currently, 3 of the greeting cards that I created with Natalie’s help, sold out to a company! I’ve seen a drastic change in my ability to create amazing cards, all thanks to this course.

Meet Angelica Mundrick

Lettering Artist + Greeting Card Designer

Hi there! My name is Angelica Mundrick. I am currently working as a full time graphic designer in New Jersey. I picked up hand lettering as a fun hobby originally in 2017, and since then I have opened an Etsy shop with my designs. 

Tell us your story:

I have always created my own cards for loved ones, but after I took the Threelogie Greeting Cards 101 course, I realized I could actually make a profit from licensing my greeting card designs. Recently, I submitted some of my card designs to Thortful, an online greeting card company based in the UK, and my Holly Jolly Christmas card was selected to be in their catalogue! I highly recommend this course as it takes you through all of the steps necessary to design successful greeting cards and get them licensed. 

Cynthia

Lettering Artist + Greeting Card Designer

Tell us your story:

Hello, my name is Cynthia. I work in Education full-time and illustration projects in my free time. I graduated from art school in 2010. One of my goals since then is to do a self-business with my illustration skills. You can find my illustration work below.

I never thought that I would ever be able to do designs for a greeting card company. After I took Threelogie Greeting cards 101 course it opened doors for me. I found a greeting card company through Linkedin and I applied last summer 2021. I surprisingly got a response back that they were interested. It was a long process but two of my greeting cards are now being sold through Parcel of Love under the name moonanima. I made up the name in art school from a cartoon and from the word animation if curious. I couldn’t have done it on my own without Natalie’s course. I really recommend it to anyone who wants to license greeting cards and diversify their creative skills.
