Emotions Greeting Cards was founded by Vivian Krug.  Some might call it destiny, but Vivian says her love of holidays, her life long hobby of photography and her passion for animals is what prompted her to create a line of greeting cards and fine prints that benefit environmental and pet friendly causes.  (see Life/Arts article for more) 

Emotions offers fine prints and greeting cards for birthdays,
holidays, special occasions, or just to give as a present!
Each card is handmade featuring a unique original photograph.  The images look at the world around us with a unique view and have been created to bring a smile to your face, evoke moods and fond memories, tell stories or simply entertain you.  The photographs have been taken from around the world, from such places as the Tahiti, Bora Bora, Switzerland, England, Costa Rica, Germany, Austria, Mexico, Italy, Monaco, Czech Republic, Holland, Norway, France, Hawaii and the continental United States.

The photo cards measure 5 1/4 by 7 1/4 with a matching envelope and tissue insert.  Each card is sealed in a clear plastic protective envelope and is signed by the artist.  Cards are blank inside for personal sentiments.

The Chocolate Cat Collection Cards (coming soon) will measure 4 3/4 by 6 1/4 and feature unique original art produced from the most popular photo cards in the Emotions line as well as many images from our Vintage Greeting Card Collection.  These cards will each have a sentiment inside, come with a matching envelope and be sealed in a clear plastic protective cover.

Everyone at Emotions Greeting Cards strives to produce a quality product, and work to help people, the environment, and to promote the welfare of animals, by donating 20% of profits to humanitarian and charitable organizations. (some of the organizations and links listed below)
