— Snafu Designs: Pays $100 per idea. “Our humorous cards use clever ideas that are simple, concisely delivered, and aimed at a ‘smart’ adult audience. We like our cards to invoke a laugh-out-loud response from the reader.” For guidelines, click here.
— Smart Alex: “Compensation discussed after submission is accepted.” Risqué. “We are always on the lookout for funny lines with an emphasis on humor for grown-ups. Our style of humor tends to be topical, witty, smart, ironic, or sexually suggestive. We like our cards to be surprising without being shocking, a bit dirty without being filthy, and we like to poke fun without being insulting.” For more, click here.
