Modern Braille Greeting Cards For All
Hello there! You have stumbled upon our ABOUT page!
[So who are we?] Our names are Karen & Tana and we have been together for 9 years and still counting! We met during our undergraduate years in College and have been together ever since. We are soon to be wed December of this year 2015 and couldn’t be happier :) Karen is an Occupational therapist with a passion for accessibility and inclusive design. She dreams of a world that is beautiful, functional, and enjoyed by everyone no matter their background or disabilities. When Karen isn’t hard at work she is a foodie through and through who lives to travel and make various crafts. Karen is very friendly so don’t feel shy to contact her! Tana is a doctor with a love for a wide group of patients ranging from children to the elderly. Tana is an avid nerd and video game player. Other than the obvious geeking out over technology and science, Tana loves loves loves food, business, and has a strong passion for education. He truly believes that anyone can learn and be taught anything as long as they are interested. Tana loves learning and meeting new people so don’t feel shy to reach out :) [Why “Inclusive Greetings”?] Karen loves making crafts and art. Tana has hobbies of business and photo/video editing. Plus, both of them have medical backgrounds and understand the importance of increasing accessibility and not excluding anyone. So they thought, why not extend that same idea to craft making! Just because someone has a disability such as vision impairment doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to enjoy the wonderful things everyone else does! Anddd…Ta-Daaaa! That’s how this idea was born; Making the world more inclusive one braille greeting card at a time :) [Should I touch?] YESSSS! Touch all you want! We want our customers, with or without sight impairments to FEEL & SEE our cards. Even children, teens, or adults who desire more sensory input can enjoy feeling the textures and Braille on our cards. So yes. PLEASE TOUCH!!!! We are constantly striving to find new ways to help all populations enjoy our products! [What do we offer?] - Originals - Prints : printed version of original designs. Budget friendly and still just as beautiful for everyone - Customizations : making it personal! To Braille or not to Braille? On prints or on originals? Braille the message, texture the design or both? Have a special request? We will be here to accommodate, just message :)
We dream that our braille greeting cards will raise awareness about being inclusive and to bridge the gap between different individuals. We hope that one day, having accessibility for all and braille on everything is just a normal part of life. We all live in this small world together, and we know that happiness is contagious so why don't we spread a ton of ridiculously happy germs together!
All the best,
Karen & Tana
