About

Do you have every intention of getting cards out in time just like mom told you to? Would you like to support American small business with a artistic and unique take on the age old tradition of store bought cards? No matter how funny the canned saying on the inside of the “WallMark” card is, you DO realize that is one of one billion of the very same cards around the nation. 

We are starting a kickstarter program to change that. 

Our cards are 100% original and laser cut in limited runs. Our colored cards are custom cut and lovingly assembled. Have a 40th birthday coming up, put together some one of a kind invites. Christmas or Hanukkah cards needed? How about a card for the Systems Administrator at work on Sys Admin day (July, 29th) or GroundHog day? We can create something unique for those occasions as well!

Our ultimate goal is to create a service that makes sure all of the people on your list get their cards on time and with the custom made laser flair! Our two top reward levels will be the first time anywhere someone could line up their cards for the whole year. Imagine how proud your mom will be to get a card from you ON TIME. No more do you need to get the "Sorry the card is late" cards. Admittedly these aren't the macaroni cards you used to send mom, but they are made with love and laser! We think she'll be almost as proud! (We may be biased, actual card appreciation may vary. These claims have not been checked with by a doctor. Please consult your mom for full safety and gift card giving safety. These cards may cause side effects. These could include but are not limited to, smiles, good feelings for supporting a small business, remarks about how thoughtful you are.)

Almost all of our rewards will be made by us, with our Trotec laser and love. We really hope that our project conveys to you the passion we have for making things with lasers and just how excited we are to be doing this. Your support will help launch our Love and Lasers card service. Your investment in us will go right back into sourcing nicer materials which are when ever possible made by small business just like us. Think of us as a economic stimulus plan with lasers!

Thank you for taking the time to read this. We hope you tell all of your friends and family about us. And any questions, comments or funny stories you might have please feel free to contact us!
