• Comedian powered greeting card line launches

    Seattle stand-up staple David Crowe is breaking into the greeting card game — and inviting other comics to join him. Co-created with gift and greeting card company Compendium, Inc., Frank & Funny is the only greeting card line written completely and exclusively by professional stand-up comedians.

    The line currently features 48 cards by comics like Costaki Economopoulos, Meghan Flaherty, Dwight Slade, Crowe, and others. The cards range “from witty to downright irreverent” and contain messages for all occasions, including some just to make you laugh– like this one written by comedian Karen Rontowski.

    Each card is $2.95 and is printed in ‘Merica with soy ink and 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper. So, it’s good for the Earth and stuff.
