Course content

Learn in 8 Week Sessions

Video Sessions

When you login to your account each week you’ll find a new video lesson. The video will cover the lesson each week.

Design Challenge

Each week you will design a new card. Each design will come with design challenges for a new greeting card.


With each card, use my list of free PSD card mock-up resources to mock-up your design. We’ll get back to that later.

Contract Sample

In Week 7 I'll share a sample licensing contract and go over all of the legal terms in the contract. Contracts are hard and confusing so this is a must!

Let’s Talk royalties

Diversify Your Income

When you license your art to greeting card companies you are essentially renting out your art!

Earn passive income by renting out your art! Licensing enables you to receive royalties based on the amount of sales your art produces for a certain product. 

Passive Income

It can be a great way to make passive income. This type of income is earned with little to no effort after designs are finalized.

Brand Exposure

With licensing your name might appear on said merchandise. This is practically free marketing for your business.


Licensing can increase the value of your brand. If your art is on merchandise from big companies your art will be seen as more valuable.

What are the benefits?

Here's what to expect

Success Stories

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

Lettering Artist + Greeting Card Designer

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. 


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.
