Greeting card companies are always looking for new talent to produce new greeting card verses. The website Thinking Out of the Box
shares the most popular greeting card companies.
The below are the best in my opinion:Blue Mountain Arts: Blue Mountain Arts wants prose or poetry written from personal experience and thoughts that are hard to put into words. They are not looking for rhyme or religious verse. Payment is $300.00 for exclusive worldwide rights.Oatmeal Studios: Oatmeal Studios wants humorous greeting card ideas for a range of ages and interests. They do not want anything mean. $100.00 per purchased idea.UK Greetings: UK Greetings is looking for editorial and humor. Payment is to be discussed.

Here are a few tips:
Before beginning to write greeting card verse, go to the greeting card section of a store and get the feel of some of the cards. When writing greeting card verse, ask yourself if you would like to receive such a card for yourself. Then, read the verse out loud to yourself. Next, read the verse to a family member or a friend. What do they think?
Do you have an illustration in mind? Tell the greeting card company about your idea when contacting. Greeting card verses make for a stress-free and creative way to work. You can make your own hours and work from wherever you want. You just may have the talent. Good luck.
