Announcing the sale of braille greeting cards by the Crafter’s Division at the NFB national convention.

This year our division will be selling an array of greeting cards containing tactile pictures on the front and a message of your choice inside. Three different message varieties will be for sale including Happy Birthday, Congratulations, and Get-well. Each message type will have a number of message options available. As for sizes of cards, there will be a large and a small card option, and a choice of two tactile pictures available for each of the card sizes. . In the large cards for sale at $5, select between a cat and a teddy bear with three hearts above his head. In the smaller cards, selling for $3, choose between a truck and a cuddly-looking teddy bear.
There will also be a selection of other cards for a variety of holidays available on a first come, first serve basis at a reduced price.
Please consider purchasing a card or more yourself and spreading the word.

If you are not planning to attend convention this year but would be interested in purchasing greeting cards, please be patient while the greeting card committee works out the details for choosing the best method for accepting payment for and shipping of the cards to individuals.

For any questions about the cards, please post to the list or contact Joyce K at blindhands@aol.com.
