Many makers and retailers face similar challenges, but can learn from one another. We encourage you to Share Your Story so we may in turn share it with others in the retail industry.

“Our cards are meant to give a personalized and scrapbook feel as if your family member, loved one and/or friend sat down to personally make you a card,” Agyeman shared.

Additionally, Zaria Cards offers a customization service that enables customers to customize a single or multiple card order. The customization can be made to the illustration, card stock, color and even the messaging.

“Our cards come in our one-of-a-kind Zaria Cards designer gift boxes to provide the full experience from the moment our customers order the card to the moment they receive a Zaria Card,” Agyeman said.


Agyeman noted that the most requested items in inventory at the time this was written were the Self Care Birthday Card, Stressed Spelled Backwards Birthday Card and A Toast Card.

Zaria Cards Retail Tip

“So far on our journey as a new company we have learned that finding the right printer is so important and probably the biggest challenge you’ll have when starting a greeting card company. It’s totally normal for it to take some time until you find the perfect fit for your brand and don’t feel the need to rush this part of the process,” Agyeman said. “Take your time so that you are genuinely happy with your product.”
