This is such a small step but seeing it in the store today honestly made my day. We still have a long way to go but these little things make me smile.
I NEED THIS OMG
Whoa there! This is an area I am WEIRDLY KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT. You want to know where to buy them? LET ME RECOMMEND YOU SOME.
I work at a greeting card shop, a mom-and-pop (but really single mom shop) kind of place and I have to add to this!
Companies have just started to make wedding cards featuring same-sex couples in the last two years. This year for the first time a major distributor made same sex Valentines Day cards! I was over the moon!
This is from Papyrus! They are a great card company that you can get at loads of stores like Target.
BUT THEIR WEDDING ONES ARE BRAND NEW AND AWESOME.
See that matching set of ties? That was our best selling wedding card about four to six months after marriage equality became legal in our state! Do you know how many nervous old women I had to help pick out a same-sex card? LIKE SO MANY.
I had a man in his 90′s who was super nervous even ask me (quote), “I don’t mean to be offensive I just don’t know the word for a girl who likes girls and I don’t know what card to get my great niece.” And I was like, “The word is lesbian, you aren’t being at all offensive, and this card here will be perfect.” BEST DAY OF MY WORKING LIFE OKAY.
Meri-Meri cards also have great same sex cards!! The Mr. and Mr. banner is also one of our best selling wedding cards!
BUT HOLD THE FUCK UP.
BECAUSE LET’S TALK ABOUT ANOTHER CUSTOM CARD SHOP LESS THAN A BLOCK AWAY FROM US.
Ladyfingers Letterpress!! Run by a woke as fuck lesbian couple!!
You want a card for a transgender family member? FUCK YEAH YOU DO.
You want a polygamous/bisexual inclusive card? HELL YES.
You want to remind your family that you are the GAY COUSIN???
DON’T SUBSCRIBE TO ANY GENDER? ANY SEXUALITY? STILL QUESTIONING? LOOK AT THIS.
FUCK YEAH INCLUSIVE GREETING CARDS.
NOW YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND THEM AND WHAT COMPANIES TO SUPPORT.
See, we hate ads, but shit like this, where people get excited over things we would actually be interested in? 34,000 notes. I love our generation.
Thank you for the info!
