“Weddings are an opportunity to fix all the things you did wrong at the middle school dance.”
So reads one of the cards by Say More, a greeting card company launched this winter by East Isles resident Tanner Winslow.
A birthday greeting: “The unfortunate truth about birthdays is that even if you hate them, you still don’t want them to stop.”
Winslow, a writer who formerly worked at the Minnesota Attorney General’s office, calls the cards microstories.
“I thought it would be interesting to try in a card format,” he said.
He has also created custom pet sympathy cards, pregnancy announcements, wedding invites and thank-you notes. He receives nice feedback on his Sympathy cards in particular, which are also designed to express feelings through a microstory.
“This way they have a jumping off point,” he said.
One Sympathy card greeting: “He was tired at the end of a long journey, and he lay down upon the Earth. The Earth embraced him, and he never had to be alone.”
