I met Allison at an Christmas market, and purchased 5 lovely hand painted cards from her. I loved them so much I decided to ask for 10 more so that I could use them as Christmas cards. I contacted Allison and she made 10 more unique cards, and shipped them in 2 days! Beautiful cards and great service!


Responding to a Call for No More Generic Cards!

The idea behind Alley Cards started many years ago with a young girl who wanted to give family members a unique and quirky hand made card instead of a generic card with a standard greeting inside. Without a business name, the early cards were made with simple printer paper folded in half and drawn with a Crayola marker.

Since then, the cards have taken on a new, more sophisticated design (and don't worry, I use premium card stock these days). In 2015, the business was named Alley Cards, however, the idea of an individually hand-drawn card still remains. It is incredibly important to me to offer people the opportunity to give their loved ones and friends a very unique card that they are able to personalize with their own words.

    I am totally in love with anything DIY and I am completely aware that I am OCD about all my creations (in a good way of course!)
