How old are your cards?


10 Years? 20 Years? 30 Years?


As stated on Designer Greetings’ website, the company was established in 1982 in Staten Island, NY, and moved to Edison, NJ in 2008.   It is now year 2020, so the youngest cards with “Staten Island, NY” printed on the back are 12 years old, and can be as old as 38 years.

Below are pictures taken from a Card$mart store on Friday, Feb.21, 2020.

It shows tremendous leftover for Valentine’s Day cards, and people may wonder if the sales for Valentine’s day cards ever started.

Flipping 144 designs of the above section revealed that more than half (75 designs) have “Staten Island, NY” printed on the back.


Many designs have 12 pieces or more.
