Submission Opportunity - Shade Tree Greeting Cards

Get your pens ready and dig out your old photos. Here's a market that sounds like fun for humor writers and owners of nostalgic photos. Or maybe I'm just nostalgic because today is my birthday.

Shade Tree Greetings wants funny verses and unique photos for their greeting card lines. Shade Tree Greetings card line is creating new birthday, anniversary, congratulation, thank you, and friendship cards and are giving writers the opportunity to write them. They pay $50.00 for every verse they select to be used on a greeting card.

They also accept photo submissions. Shade Tree Greetings photos will pay $50.00 for each photograph chosen to be used on a greeting card. They are looking for photographs taken between 1940 and 1975 for use in their line of "Actual Pictures." They want unique photos depicting the times as they were. "Actual Pictures" cards strive for nostaglia with humor.
