Why don’t you make cards for gay couples?

We get that question a lot. Other things we hear a lot: “You guys seem so accepting and make cards for everyone, so I’m surprised you don’t have cards for same-sex couples,” and “You guys need to make a gay wedding card,” and “You guys are the coolest, smartest ladies in the whole world.” Ok, maybe that last one I made up. Wishful thinking.

We thought about it for awhile. And then we started asking ourselves questions like “What is a ‘gay’ wedding?” and “How would a card for a same-sex couple be any different than what we’re doing?” and we drank a decent amount of wine and ate too many cookies (as we always do when trying to get to the bottom of something) and after all that traumatic thinking was over, we came to a fairly obvious conclusion: Love is love and looks the same no matter what.

We wanted to make our Valentine’s Day, Wedding, Engagement, Anniversary, and just general Love cards about… well, LOVE. Novel idea, right? Love doesn’t care if you’re a man or a woman, or black, white, or green. This is what Love cares about: doing it, loving you despite your absolutely horrendous gas, and feeling like you have a partner in this crazy world.

In conclusion (this is my 5th grade essay paper), it’s not that we don’t make cards for gay or straight people, it’s just that we make cards about love. Simple as that.
