About Cypress Card Co.
Hi There! I'm Eschela – the designer and everything else here at Cypress Card Co..
Cypress Card Co. is run from my home in Stillwater, Oklahoma. I conceive, design, illustrate and package each card and love it! (some people call it crazy...) The aim is to create refreshingly funny, quirky cards that make people laugh, really laugh- laughter is the best medicine-right? Every card's message is designed to reflect how we ACTUALLY talk to our friends and family- there will be no fancy metaphor about how someone anchors you like the roots of an oak tree here or something equally stuffy- nope not here! So don’t be mistaken, these aren't your grandma's greeting cards!
Cypress Card Co. was started on the idea of creating modern, refreshing cards that are completely environmentally responsible- why not have the best of both worlds! (I'm a big believer in having your cake and eating it too!) And being green doesn't have to mean you compromise on cost or quality either! It just means I have taken the time to source materials from companies that carry the same high environmental standards that Cypress Card Co. believes in.
So...what does "environmentally responsible" mean you say? (Great question!)

This whole "environmentally responsible thing is why our logo is a tree- we like them!
ABOUT THE DESIGNER:
After a medical accident left me paralyzed in 2013, life changed dramatically for me. Having just graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) with a degree in Graphic Design, I was now at a major crossroad with what to do with my life. With some introspection at the major hurdles I had just overcome, I realized what a big impact the support and wonderful cards I received had made on me throughout my journey. Just that little laugh, that little escape from reality is what I needed to pull me through. I realized if those cards helped me, they would help others and I wanted to be a part of that! Then and there I decided to start Cypress Card Co and the rest is history!
Thanks for taking a look at Cypress Card Co.! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
