6 Niche Greeting Cards Business Success Stories 
Here are some real life success stories of starting a niche greeting cards business:
1. Joker Greeting ($1.2M/year)
Travis Peterson (from Irvine, California, USA) started Joker Greeting about 8 years ago.
I am Travis Peterson and started Joker Greeting. We make original prank gifts and prank non-gifts for friends, family, and offices. It all started with a non-stop musical greeting card that looped for 3-6 hours.
For 2.5 years, I have been working on making musical greeting cards interesting again. To be clear, I never intended on making a greeting card or joke company, but we launched on Kickstarter and raised $92,073 in 30 days with no marketing, so I decided to give it a shot.
2. Jordyn Alison Designs ($48K/year)
Jordyn (from Michigan, USA) started Jordyn Alison Designs about 5 years ago.
Hey, I’m Jordyn and I’m the owner of Jordyn Alison Designs. My intentions with my products are to bring joy to your daily life as well as help connect you with others.
As of February 2020, I’m currently averaging $3,000 a month. I know this number could (and will) be better but for now, I’m really content with this!
