Prank gifts are not like normal gifts. Prank gifts require patience and staging. I hear a lot of stories about how prank birthday cards are given and received and I have learned a lot over the past year.  1st rule of Fight club...do not talk about fight club. Pranks are the same.  Please do not warn them "it's a prank and you can't stop it!" That is like warning someone they have a surprise party waiting at home.     The table party:  In this scenario make sure you give your prank birthday card as the first.

Honeymoon Prank

Travis Peterson

Over the weekend I had a customer reach out to me and say thank you. They gave a prank Thinking of you card that plays the #macarena to their friend for their wedding.

We are but men!  (And women.) (And also some animals.) (And there's a little bit of gray area.) We are simply unequipped. Let us delve into the mysteries of the mind with a play-by-play of the most common reaction to the Joker Greeting Card: the inappropriate...

New Motto (for today)

Travis Peterson

Birthdays and babies, our new motto.  So we make the best prank birthday cards and the best prank greeting cards. My brother and I created the idea together. And the other day we talked about how long this company could last. We had the sudden realization that as long as there are birthdays and babies we will sell cards.  Funny birthday cards are the best birthday cards. And I don't think we will ever stop celebrating the year of birth. I mean the idea is always weird but we do it. We have a song that we all agreed is...
