¡Nos Vemos!

It is not easy to find bilingual greeting cards...unless you know where to look! I was fortunate enough to discover Nos Vemos Greetings while I was in Dallas at the Gift Market. They have a fantastic line of greeting cards for all occasions with both English and Spanish translations on the front of the card, making them accessible to everyone.
Lena Hayden is the artistic genius behind the company. Graduating with a double major of Spanish and Graphic Design from Washburn University, the idea for Nos Vemos began after studying abroad in Puebla, Mexico (one of the most beautiful and friendly places in said country, I might add.) She couldn't find any Spanish cards that were trendy enough to send to her Latino friends. Lena is not Hispanic, but her love of the Spanish language and cultura, combined with her American aspirations and business savvy, has resulted in a popular and very marketable product. In only their second year of business, Nos Vemos greeting cards can already be found in nine states.

Naturally, my favorites are those dealing with children and families. But they have cards for every occasion, including a new and absolutely hilarious line for 2008 featuring comedian Jade Esteban Estrada (Comedy Central.)
