— American Greetings: This company will pay you for your work, but doesn’t mention the amount. 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.
— 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.
