Create-your-own note cards make artistic greetings

We get some mighty clever orders here at CrinkledNose. From birth announcements and birthday invitations to holiday photo cards and photo calendars, we provide a unique outlet for folks to craft their own special occasion inventions.

Our customers are a diverse group, hailing from the farthest and widest parts, and among their orders we’ve seen creativity at its finest. Lovely family photos adorn some of the sweetest personalized greetings, dripping with sentiment so sweet, confectioners can’t touch ‘em.

I must say, our Crinkled wares are delightfully original. It’s a great day when we get a personalized coffee order with a cleverly composed limerick, or a New Year’s card with an out-there, wacky photo.

Just like in every checkout line in America, we’ve seen a few things that made us cringe a little too. These cards are usually built around photos of poorly lit, hapless-looking subjects who look like they just woke up.

But that’s okay. We kinda love those too.

Picasso once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Had Picasso known about CrinkledNose, he could’ve referred the creatively budding – and bloomed – to us.
Because all of our products are personalized, kids and adults really get to show off their artwork, using a medium that’s not only attractive, but functional. Of all our customized goods, our note cards are probably the most versatile. Everybody needs a set of handy, any-occasion note cards to pen an occasional thank you, thinking-about-you, or stop-being-sick greeting.

With your own painting, stunning photo, or child’s watercolor, you can create one-of-a-kind note cards to share all these special messages and more with your family and friends.

Most of us will never present our work in a major gallery. But by creating your own personalized note cards, you can happily distribute your masterpiece, as well as your well wishes, to the mailboxes of those you love.

When it comes to creative expression, true “art” doesn’t just belong to the world’s greatest painters – it lies in the imagination of the eager, the heart of the sincere, and the eye of the proud parent. Your pièce de résistance – or toddler’s finger-painting – should be shared with the people most important to you, as many as possible, and the easiest way to display your fine work is inside a pretty envelope with a postage stamp on the front.

Besides, museums are a tad stuffy anyway, and card stock is cheaper than canvas.


  1. I personally like the art work of the house with all the windows. Someone very creative must have drawn that.

  2. Yes, I would be very proud if I were the parent of this creative young lad!

  3. Ha! I can even stay within the lines on my 1974 Hong Kong Phooey coloring book. I bet that kid can't do that!
