Gemini Greetings Review & Giveaway

Share

The winner of the Chris Sligh CD is #48 Donna Clark. Congrats!

According to the greeting card association, there are an estimated 3,000 greeting card publishers in America. These companies range from small businesses to major corporations, selling over $7 billion in greeting cards in the US each year. Of these companies, most do not publish a specialized line of greetings for families with multiples.

As a mother of three-year-old twins, Angelice Tyson has created Gemini Greetings, to satisfy that need. Gemini Greetings focuses on offering greeting cards for families with multiples.


They also offer gift items such as diaper cakes, layette milkshakes & bouquets.....

and tee-shirts for Moms of multiples!


Angelice was kind enough to send me some samples of her cards to review. They arrived quickly and I am quite impressed! These cards are made of high quality, smooth paper, bright & fun envelopes, and have the cutest designs on them! They are in fun colors & have a wide variety of holiday cards. Everything from Father's Day, to Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Thanksgiving, to a fun assortment of Birthday cards. (I took a picture of them but my hubby has a new camera & I don't know how to download pics yet...argh!)


Here is what inspired Angelice to start Gemini Greetings:
"It was a chilly morning in January 2007. My twins were invited to their first playmates' birthday party. After picking out the perfect two-part gift, the search was on for a birthday card with two boys saying, "Happy Birthday from us!". I wasn't looking for the perfect "twin" card, just one to fit my situation. Unfortunately, there were none to be found. The frustration nested in the back of my head and lurked for months. I knew that if I really wanted to do something about this, I could, and during my recovery from a hysterectomy, the idea began to take shape.

Gemini Greetings was a distant dream and with the resurgence of energy, I decided to make this dream a reality. It was only in September that I began my search for an illustrator. I envisioned warm & cheerful characters on greeting cards for families with multiples, from twins to quads and possibly more! I just knew that if I had a hard time finding cards for my twins, it has to be even more difficult for those with triplets and quads. Ideally, these cards will be suited for first time parents with no other children ages four and younger. Of course, I place no restrictions on my work, I just hope that my creations bring smiles to many faces and happiness to many homes.

It's a tough choice because I have some Gemini Greetings cards, and I absolutely love them. So, I think I'd spend my gift certificate on a combination of cards and one of the T-shirts!
