Check Out the Diverse Selection of Inspirational Greeting Cards from Graphic Anthology
All of our artist partners at CheerNotes bring their own unique personalities to our site, and Graphic Anthology, founded by Genesis, is no different. Much like us, she saw a need in the market and took the initiative to fill in the gaps.
"We believe in the power of thoughtful, written connection to uplift and inspire. Graphic Anthology began out of that space: a need for simple, heartfelt connection after the loss of a parent in 2010. Since then, we’ve been committed to helping people express themselves to those they love most."
- Genesis D., Founder of Graphic Anthology
The Graphic Anthology Story
You know that feeling you get when you receive a mailed letter and it’s not a bill? It’s pretty fantastic. It will brighten your whole day. That’s the feeling that inspired Graphic Anthology. Back in 2010, Graphic Anthology launched an Etsy store featuring three art prints. They needed something to brighten their spirits and weren’t finding it in any of the big box stores.
Since those humble beginnings, the brand has expanded to include a growing selection of greeting cards and gift items that focus on “joy and simplicity that encourage relationship making (and maintaining) with those you love most,” as their website says.
Her collection features a cheerful mix of bright colors with calming pastels, and thoughtful messages both in English and in Spanish. Here are some of our top picks that can be found on our site.
For Your Bestie who Loves Music in Their Birthday
Graphic Anthology is throwing it back with a fun illustration of an old-school cassette tape featuring a sweet birthday message on this card. You might have to be of a certain age to understand how major it was to receive a mix tape from someone, but this card gives that sentiment of really caring. The teal and yellow color palette give it a really cheerful vibe, too. Check it out and add one to your cart HERE.
To Celebrate Hanukkah with Style
We all know that big box stores aren’t exactly overflowing with Hanukkah cards. But this celebration deserves to be recognized with a beautiful greeting card too! The close-up view of the Star of David plays off the use of the word “shine” in the text in a very creative way, and the teal and white color palette pays homage to the traditional blue and white color palette of Hanukkah. Pick up your Hanukkah card HERE.
For the Person Who Lost a Pet
Losing a pet is like losing a family member and it can be hard to know what to say to someone who is going through such a hard time. Handing them a card with a heartfelt message that they can open and read when they are ready can be a really considerate way to show you care and that you understand what they’re going through. The pet collar with a heart tag keeps the identity of the animal ambiguous so you could give it to a dog owner, cat owner, or any other pet that would wear a collar. Purchase one HERE.
Para un Dulce y Feliz Cumpleaños
Inclusivity is a major pillar of our business, and that includes cards that are written in languages other than English. Graphic Anthology has a few different designs for your Spanish-speaking family and friends! There’s one for the person who has a serious sweet tooth. For the person whose favorite part of their birthday is the cake. And a few other varieties with the “Feliz Cumpleaños” message and bright, festive birthday designs that you can see HERE.
There’s Even More on the Website
