ggcards

Have you ever been looking for a greeting card for someone and found your self disappointed because you have not been able to find a card that really relates to the recipient, and their culture!

Well look no further because your search is over! ggcards is a gift card company specialising in mixed race greeting cards aswell as greeting cards for many different cultures and nationalities.

ggcards was launched when my husband and I were in a greeting card shop looking for a card for our daughter’s 1st birthday. All we found were cards that catered for caucasian children which didn’t embrace our daughter’s mixed heritage. Seeing a gap in the market I got right to work photographing designing and drawing cards capturing and celebrating different ethnicities and I bought out my first line of greeting cards in 2009.

With ggcards you will be able to find just the right card to acccomadate every occassion and celebrate every milestone, and with new cards added regularly you’ll be left spoilt for choice!

Each card is hand made, and the photos are printed onto high quality photo paper. We hope you enjoy our products.

TO AN INDIAN PRINCESS An Indian girl wearing a traditional Indian sari and twirling around a pink ribbon saying 'TO AN INDIAN PRINCESS' with a rangoli patterned background.   ggcards has been a big hit worldwide and I thought it was time to expand and make it even more personal to my customers by giving them the option to have their greeting cards personalised to their recipient. This means they would send me a picture of the persons or person they would want in the greeting card and I would use my talents and turn the picture into a Dimitra 'half real life half cartoon' creation.  If you want a specific pose then the person/persons have to already be in the pose but I can add most props, accessories, objects etc... to the picture.  Here's an example of a before picture of gg and then an after picture of gg, after I have worked my magic and turned them into 'half real life half cartoon' master pieces (",)
