— American Greetings: This company will pay you for your work, but the amount isn’t mentioned. To submit your ideas, you have to sign their Disclosure Agreement and send it in with your material. “We very seldom need to go outside our company to purchase new ideas, writings or designs,” the company says. “Nevertheless, we are sometimes willing to discuss with people not in the employ of
our company any ideas, writings or designs which might lead us to even greater creativity.” For details, click here.

— 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.

— RSVP: “We are always looking for new talent when it comes to writing! We publish cards with fresh and innovative messages that express sentiments in interesting, non-formulaic ways. Our line has a broad range of card types, from short and sweet to witty and sharp to long and heart-felt. While humor writing will always be slightly different than non-humor writing, here are some common qualities that we look for when it comes to writing for our greeting cards.” Payment amount not specified.
