Welcome

Welcome to Greetings by Jenny. Here you will find a variety of unique handmade postcards, greeting cards, wall art, and more.


Greetings by Jenny is a one-woman operation located in the city of Chicago. Each card is truly handmade (with few exceptions), often with upcycled & repurposed material. As of June 2019, Jenny only uses card blanks that are 100% recycled, minimum 20% post-consumer waste, and often FSC certified.

Jenny freehands all her lettering, frequently skipping pencil outlines and going straight to the Sharpie pen.

The entire business was built on the premise of bringing more fun, beautiful, and thoughtful cards that aren’t just an afterthought to a gift, but a gift in and of itself. Jenny wants to bring more happiness to the mailbox and Make America Greet Again.

Feel free to browse greetingsbyjenny.com and please reach out here if you can’t find what you are looking for or need a custom creation.

Creativity is intelligence having fun.

What it means to use upcycled, recycled, and repurposed materials (Part I)

Wondering what I mean when I say that I make my cards using upcycled, repurposed, and recycled materials? This blog series will explain exactly what I mean and why my cards are truly eco-friendly.

It doesn’t mean that I pick things out of the garbage, or off the street. It means I source my materials to create beautiful greeting cards from ethical suppliers.

As of June 2019, I switched my supplier for blank greeting cards, and now all of my greeting cards are 100% recycled. All of them are created with a minimum of 20% post-consumer waste. Many are FSC certified, and produced using green energy.

“OK, Jenny,” you might be saying. WhAt DoEs ThIs AcTuAlLy MeAn?
