When I was 3 or 4 years old, with all the boldness that the innocent possess, I dashed into my closet, donned a Superman outfit, and jumped out of my bedroom window. I don’t remember now, these many years later, how I dealt with the disappointment I must have felt along with the bruises, but I still like making hopeful leaps in my life.

I vividly remember certain events as a boy that drove me to become an artist. The first time I pulled N C Wyeth's ‘Treasure Island’ off the library shelves. Visiting Chicago’s Palette and Chisel Club with my dad and feeling submerged in that lovely smell of oil paint.

Years ago, as I picked up my tired little daughter from pre-school, I asked her how her day went. “We did art,” she sighed. “It was tufficult.” I know just how she feels.

I live encircled by volcanoes on an island in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.

Experience Great Arrow silkscreened cards – the bold hues and velvety feel of ink printed by hand, layered one color at a time. In 1984, Alan Friedman and Donna Massimo began making silkscreened cards for holidays and every day in a small studio in Buffalo, New York. 35 years and 7000 cards later, the tradition continues with the help of a crew of talented local artists working with wonderful designers from around the world.

In a shop, a Great Arrow card is unmistakable… an oasis of brilliant, luscious color. The greetings are simple (sometimes punny) to inspire the sender to say what they feel.   We purchase FSC certified papers, use recycled materials wherever possible and print with U.S. made inks. In the end, it's love that makes our cards something worth sending and keeping. A Great Arrow hand silkscreened card is a hug that fits in an envelope.
