Hi again...glad you are here. As I mentioned earlier, I am the owner and creator of JC Designs. Here's a bit more about how we got started.
My love for greeting cards began at an early age and I loved not only receiving but giving cards to family and friends. But, it was when I was 13 years old that I developed the deeper understanding of how powerful it is to give a greeting card. My grandmother came to visit for my 13th birthday. When she and my grandfather headed home I wrote my Grandmother a note in a thank you card telling her how much I loved her. She unfortunately passed away suddenly before she received the card. When my family arrived to my grandparent's home, my grandfather greeting me in tears and embraced me in a long hug. He just kept repeating, "the card, the card" as he wept. My grandfather received and read the card that day just before I arrived. It was emotional but a card and moment that we will cherish forever. It was at this moment that I realized the power of a Greeting Card and I began dreaming of one day having my own greeting card line.
I dabbled in graphic designing and writing before discovering greeting cards are the perfect way to share my other life long passion of photography. Photography was something my family enjoyed together. Having our own dark room at the house enabled us to be creative and explore our talents and I went on to study photography at the New York Institute of Photography. After few years of specializing in portrait photography, I decided this wasn't my niche and took some time away to focus on discovering me and what inspired me creatively.
Greeting cards are a perfect way to share my photography. It's affordable - to anyone of all ages, anywhere in the world, and for all occasions. It is a way to help spread love and kindness around the world - by Giving the Gift of a Card - so in 2019, I made my dream a reality and created JC Designs.
Our mission is to create high quality and lasting photo greeting cards and stationery products that can be enjoyed by everyone.
