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 I 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 and receive a greeting card. My grandmother came to visit for my 13th birthday. When she and my grandfather headed home I wrote her 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.

Photography was something I was passionate about throughout my childhood as well. Having our own dark room at the house enabled me to be creative and explore my talents. I later went on to study photography at the New York Institute of Photography. Creating art behind the camera and during post processing allows me to truly be myself and find joy - so in 2019, I made my dream a reality by starting my photo greeting card business - JC Designs.

During the process of naming my business, I kept going back to JC. My husband and I share the same initials - JC - but there was just something more that was drawing me to the name. A few years later, my mother gave me my late grandfather's cufflinks with the initial JC on them. My grandfather passed on his love of roses, flowers, and the sunset to me. We shared an incredible bond and his presence was right there with me and it was destiny to subconsciously name my business after him - JC Designs. 

Now, Oz is my partner in crime at JC Designs and we are dedicated to spreading kindness and bringing people together through the power of a greeting card. Each card features one of my original photographs inspired by bright colors, joyful spirits, and pure happiness and is suitable for framing; so it's more than just a card...it's a gift.

I created Oz's first greeting card in 2022 as a way to help raise funds for our friends in Ukraine. Due to the popularity of that card, I decided to continue creating designs featuring Oz. Modeling and showing off are Oz's favorite things to do; his personality shines through his cards and they are sure to bring a smile (even a giggle) to anyone!

Our mission is to create high quality and lasting photo greeting cards and stickers that can be enjoyed by everyone.

Give the Gift of a Card!
