More About Us

Frustrated with greeting cards that failed to capture what she wished to convey, our CEO, Asha Banks, founded CheerNotes, a company that helps EVERYONE share a special, authentic moment with their loved ones.

Asha Banks CEO CheerNotes

"I always felt I had to make a compromise when searching for the right card for my family members. I shared the idea of a new way to shop for greeting cards with some friends and classmates and learned that a number of other people had very similar issues. Along with feeling they had to compromise, my friends of various cultures shared that they rarely found cards with the likeness, language or proper references for their culture."


Through her classes within the Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon she continued to research and test a way to provide a better selection and easier process for buying greeting cards. Her classmates, Hannah Poulson and Shana Pradeep joined her on the journey to making CheerNotes a reality which led to our January 26, 2020 launch! 

As we embark on our first year of business, our values remain a priority: 

  • Deliver wow-worthy moments  
  • Nurture yourself by nurturing your relationships 
  • Remain curious and be open to evolving  
  • Practice empathy - respect and celebrate individuality  
  • Be transparent with each other, our partners, our customers and the communities we impact

    We are currently working out of the Swartz Center for Entrepreneurship at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.
