“Humans are gifted with five senses to translate physical stimulus into usable data. Through touch, sight, sound, smell, and taste, the world animates in energetic vibrations of form, color, aroma, temperature, and texture. The sense of humor is in a category of its own. It hones in on the delightfully unexpected, induces a physical response of pleasure, and brings joy to the soul.” —Chris Dunmnire


No Frills Cards: Flaunt Your Frugality!


Free frugal FUNgus for the cheap amongus.


I bet you're writing a lot of Christmas cards about this time now, aren't you? It seems the closer to Christmas day we get, the yin joy of Christmastime has the yang of a thinning wallet.

If you're running low on funds or tired of paying top-dollar for your store-bought greeting cards that last a hot minute before being round-filed, and don't need a card that plays music, holds money, pops-up into a 3D sculpture, or cleans up after you, this totally No Frills solution is perfect. I've designed 15 bare-bones greeting cards and invitations for the minimalist of effort to simply download, print, sign your name to, and cheaply pass on to your recipient. The catch: You're on your own for the envelope!

Cheap Printing Tips and Frugal Ideas:

No Frills Party InvitationI know you're going the frugal route here, but you're still going to have to print the card yourself. Hey, that's a great bargain since all the other work has been done for you! For best results, print these spiffy cards on thick paper or card stock. Now if you're really, really cheap, regular paper will work too. It will result in a flimsy card however, but it will support (flimsily) the cheap theme we're running with here.

“Humor can make a serious difference. In the workplace, at home, in all areas of life — looking for a reason to laugh is necessary. A sense of humor helps us to get through the dull times, cope with the difficult times, enjoy the good times and manage the scary times.”
—Steve Goodier
