Be An Artist

Hey, you talented, creative person, you...

Since the beginning, we've always worked with independent artists because we value the power of true individual expression. Together, we create the most productive (and awesome) greeting cards out there. We take great pride in our family of independent artists, a family we are always looking to grow.

To Submit Your Greeting Card Concepts:

  • Artwork should be designed to mimic a complete greeting card - message included (vertical 5”x7”).
  • Please send up to 10 Birthday ideas (labeled with your name, address and phone number) Please do not send holiday-specific cards, as we work far in advance of holidays.
  • Do not send slides, disks, tear sheets, or original artwork. Recycled Paper Greetings is not responsible for any damage to artwork submitted. We suggest submitting color copies or photographs of your art.
  • Do not send previously published cards.

All submissions must be complete greeting card concepts. We do not accept submissions of copy alone or photos/art alone.

Please include a self-addressed stamped envelope large enough to hold your submission.

The review process can take up to 2 months. Simultaneous submissions to other companies are perfectly acceptable. If your work is chosen, we will contact you to discuss all of the details. If your work is not selected, we will return it to you.
