We couldn’t be happier about the launch of, an online printable greeting card company with cards that are specifically written and designed to celebrate same­ sex love and marriage. The icing on the (wedding) cake is that a portion of each card sale is going to a well­known LGBT charity.

Each beautiful card is written and designed by fellow blogger, Emily Belden of Chicago. The witty cards feature short­and­sweet copy along with a satirical, simple design.


Belden conceptualized HAPPY HAPPY GAY GAY after realizing there was a limited selection of cards dedicated to this demographic. “My gay friend was one of the first to get married after DOMA died. My option was to send him a greeting card clearly meant for a straight couple, or send nothing at all. So I sent nothing at all,” she explained. About a month later, she launched the slick eCommerce site where shoppers, gay or straight, can easily nab one of the printable designs for just $5 ­ with a portion of each purchase going to a popular LGBT non­profit.

“These foundations and projects have kept some of my best friends alive. They give countless people hope and strength everyday and I want my cards to help fund that.”After each purchase, shoppers receive a link to their email prompting the download. The process is quick, easy, and affordable. Customers are also encouraged to get creative with the print by using colored or thicker paper.
