This week, we’ve prepared some cards for four of our favorite birthday celebrating -celebs of the week -Usher, Angela Lansbury, Zac Effron and John Krasinski – What do you think of them?!
We’re uber excited to bring to you another fantastic customer – Claudia Carey – from California. Claudia loves to send cards to her family and friends. Here’s just one of Claudia’s many testimonials from the past 6 months.
In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue…
Genoese-born Christopher Columbus loved sailing from a young age. Inspired by the travels of Marco Polo, he wanted to find a shorter route to the Far East by sailing west. He did not realize his dream, nor was he the first to discover America; however, his journey opened the way for further exploration and European settlement of the Americas.
Columbus Day was proclaimed a national holiday in 1937 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. It is widely celebrated among Italian-Americans as a day to honor their heritage.
Interesting facts about this day:
- The first Columbus Day was celebrated in 1792 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of his arrival to the New World.
- Hawaii and South Dakota do not celebrate Columbus Day, instead celebrating Discoverers’ Day and Native Americans’ Day, respectively.
- Leif Erikson is considered to be the first European to have discovered the Americas. Leif Erikson day is celebrated on October 9th.
Well it’s officially the first day of Autumn – we hope everything is golden where you are!

Now isn’t that clever… Stay tuned to see the change coming soon. We’ll have a new logo, app icon and whole new website and app user interface design. We think you’ll love the sleek new look and next week we’ll be previewing some of the new visuals and artwork.
