Introducing In Other Words… Our Newest Greeting Card Line

Words can lift us up, comfort us, make us smile; they have the power to show us how much we’re loved and appreciated by others. And at Compendium, we know that finding the right words to share at the right time is important. That’s why we’re excited to introduce you to In Other Words…

We’ve only recently released these cards and they’re already a big hit! Here’s just one of the reactions we’ve received:

“When I started reading through the In Other Words… cards, I felt like, ‘Yes, I finally found the cards I’ve been looking for!’ …I’m in love with these cards. Reading through the In Other Words… catalog, for me, was like finding out the next book to your favorite story is coming out.” – Laura, Seattle, WA

And the inspiration for the line? It all started with an idea by Compendium’s CEO and president, Kobi Yamada. “We wanted to showcase creative storytelling in a way that was portable and fun to give,” says Kobi. “Our goal was to create cards that didn’t just surprise, delight, and entertain, but cards that also connected, encouraged, and inspired.”

Here are just a few of the special things that go into the making of our In Other Words… cards:

Wit with Big Heart

Our talented writers have crafted inspiring sentiments with smart, unexpected humor for a wonderful blend of playfulness, sincerity, and spirit. Every card has a warm, unique voice and is filled with a love of the written word.

Quality Design

“We didn’t just want to highlight great writing, we wanted to celebrate it,” says Kobi. The cards are printed on quality textured papers for a handcrafted feel, while the bright colors and simple, clean designs perfectly highlight the wit and whimsy of the words.

Community Spirit

A percentage of every card’s purchase goes to organizations that promote literacy and support readers of the future. And, like all of our greeting cards, In Other Words… is printed responsibly in the United States on FSC®-certified recycled paper.

We’re thrilled that these cards are getting such a positive response, and we look forward to hearing what you think. “In other words,” says Kobi, “we hope you are going to love these new cards as much as we do!”
