Welcome to the Elephant's Trunk- where we are making sending snail mail fun again!
Make sure you fan us on Facebook as we post a Card of the Week each Monday and offer FREE domestic shipping on that card:: www.facebook.com/elephantstrunkllb.

Growing up on a rainy day with nothing to do my sister and I always dug through my Mom’s craft trunk to find out what kinds of pipe cleaners, pom-poms, sequins, felt or other items we could put together to keep us busy for an afternoon. The trunk became a place of stimulation and entertainment for my sister and me. Thus when I decided to create my own business it was an easy transition to draw inspiration from this special place of my childhood, that trunk. Elephant’s as many of you know are a sign of luck, so I plopped the sign of luck in front of my inspiration and the Elephant’s Trunk was born.

The Elephant’s Trunk is a greeting card shop dedicated to making snail mail fun again. Finding inspiration for products comes from everywhere and anywhere, from current events to a unique magazine or an inspirational quote. A lot of my creativity and inspiration comes from things that make me laugh and I hope my humor signs through in my creations. These are the things that stimulate me to create.

One of my favorite things about my business is special greeting card orders. Designing unique pieces catered to a customer’s specific needs is the best kind of interaction I could ever ask for with customers.

The Elephant’s Trunk has allowed me to take a variety of creative as well as humorous ideas from the back of my head and place them into physical form on a greeting card. I can only hope my customers experience this spirit of enthusiasm I have for creating greeting cards when they sample the Elephant’s Trunk.
