Tulsa’s Queen of Cards Wins International Award

SCREWED AGAIN: The Queen of Cards’ award-winning design features the above image with the inside caption “Screwed again. This year I thought Santa was bringing me an electric train.???

The Queen of Cards, a Tulsa-based manufacturer of greeting cards, has been named recipient of the LOUIE Award, the top international prize for creativity in greeting cards.

Sponsored by the industry trade group, The Greeting Card Association, the LOUIEs are named after the creator of the American greeting card, Louis Prang. Out of 1,100 entries in this year’s competition, one of the Queen of Cards designs was recognized as best in the Humor-Christmas/Holiday category.

The Queen’s Institute of Laugh Therapy line of cards features black and white, vintage photos with humorous captions. The winning holiday card pictures a scene in which a toddler is peering into the eyes of his baby sister, laying in a bassinet in front of a Christmas tree. The inside caption reads, “Screwed again. This year I thought Santa was bringing me an electric train.”

The award was presented at the 18th Annual LOUIE Award ceremonies, held in New York.

This is the second LOUIE Award for the Tulsa-based company. In 2003, the international honor was presented to the Queen of Cards for a humorous card designed by the firm’s founder, Deborah Colwell. After Colwell died in 2000, her husband Tim expanded her vision and today, the humorous cards are sold in every state and in Canada.

The Queen of Cards line is distributed exclusively by Emery-Burton Fine Cards & Gifts.

In Tulsa, The Queen of Cards is sold at the Snow Goose and Pengaro’s in Utica Square, You’re Invited, Paper Chase, Moto Photo at 82nd and Harvard, Lazy Day-z Gifts, and Rotary’s Elite Repeat at 83rd and Lewis. The Queen’s website is www.queenofcards.com
