More About Simple Salutations


What is your business and where can we find it?

Simple Salutations is an online store for holiday cards, invitations for various events from bridal showers & baby showers to birthdays and rehearsal dinners.

Our website is www.simplesalutations.com

Is it mom-owned, invented, created . . .?

Our company is small and mighty – with just two sisters who are both stay at home moms with sons two months apart. The designer sister worked for Disney Animation for 8 years before becoming a freelance graphic designer and mom to Charlie. The organized sister worked for the American Red Cross before becoming mom to baby Brady.

A little about your entrepreneur journey so far?

We are having a great time working together! Its been so fun to share a business with each other. We have truly enjoyed helping make invitations and cards as custom as the client needs them to be.

The folded notecards are great and the contemporary design as well as more traditional.
I liked the Retro Cocktails - it reminds me of my life before kids, I'd send them to my friends from that time.
