    Great list!

    Oddly enough, this is the very first freelancing market I considered when I started out as a freelance writer.

    I have to say that I never broke in, but it’s still something I’d like to try some time.

    With any market, I think persistence is key.

    Thanks for writing this post (and reminding me about greeting cards).

      Thanks, Laura. If you break in, you’ll have to come back and share some pointers with us.

    Thanks for doing this, Deb. I’ve applied to a couple of these earlier, but it’s nice to have a consolidated list like this to refer to. This is something I’m very interested in, but haven’t put too much effort into – hope to change that this year. I did land a gig for writing ecard verses and concepts a couple of years ago from FWJ. It was a lot of fun and it later extended to blogging and doing other types of writing for the client.

      Hi Rupa,

      I hear tell greeting cards can be a lucrative opportunity. I’m not very good with prose. However, I did once sell a T-shirt slogan.

    Interesting idea. I thought about writing greeting cards a few years ago but never really pursued it as I didn’t know where to begin. Thanks for the list!

    I have sold over 2000 humorous/studio ideas in my career and have breen quite successful in the business. I once had over 35 markets. I retired from writing in 2000 after my wife passed away and spend my time these days as a jazz and blues keyboard player/vocalist. My advise to all new freelance greeting card writers is don’t get discouraged as that first sale will come when you least expect it. Good luck! Mike

    Thank you for giving us these outlets for us to navigate thru. I have just sent one of my long poems for a car to Blue Mountain and I hope to hear something soon. I have been looking for places to send my poems to along with my artwork. So thank you for your website. This is just the place I will keep on hand so I can be kept on updates. Thanks again Deb..

    Hi there! Do you know of any companies that would be interested in freelance greeting cards of a religious nature????

      I used to take my mother in law to a religous bookstore she liked. I am sure they had cards. You could find a store and go look and see what companies make their cards. Just a thought. Good luck.

    Just discovered this site during my first few days ever of researching what to do with the writing I have done all my life- boy writing is soooooooooooo much more fun than being online. But now I see the necc…no one will find writing stuffed under one’s bed will they?

    Looking forward to reading this site more thoroughly and putting it’s resources to good use.

    Happy writing everyone!

    These are some great sources for greeting card freelancers, my guess is that the submission rate is very high. I know of a send out cards rep that creates her own artwork and card saying and sells them on her own.

    Found this sight quite by accident. Work in Elementary Edu. setting and have been writing poems for others for years. Have been looking into Greeting Card. The poetry I write rhymes. I am finding that most companies ask for poems that “do not” Did you come across any that accepted “rhyming” poetry. I feel sure I could do this as I am approached often to write for friends, school, ect. Any advice? Thank you so much.

    Had a question…..I have been looking into a few different companies for my writing. I know that when they decide to choose one of your writings and publish it, they are entitled to those writings and own them. I’ve noticed that many companies say they take weeks to months to even return any response to you in regards to being accepted or not. My question is, do we stick with one company for our writing, or do we submit our writing to several different companies? I would hate to sit around waiting for a “denial” letter, only to have to try another company that might accept my writing and have it be two years before I find one. My problem with this is, if I submit to three different companies the same writing, and one accepts it (or maybe more than one) how do I inform the other company that another company has purchased the rights to that writing? Does this make sense? I just dont want to get caught up with two companies “purchasing” my writing and dealing with which way to go, how to inform them its “not for sale” any longer etc etc.
