It all started with a guy looking for thank-you cards for some friends who had thrown him a birthday party (thank you cards from a guy – questionable, but true). J-Dig co-founder Peter Henry was the grateful card-seeking guy, and everything he saw was too flowery and overdone and didn’t appeal to his sense of humor. Shortly after that, Peter’s brother, Josh, gave their mom a hand-drawn Mother’s Day card that cracked everyone up. The card was simple, but funny.
Thus J-Dig Cards was conceived. (*For the record, we do not condone incest.)
After a world-record gestation, J-Dig was born (without pain meds!) at the 62nd Annual National Stationery Show in New York City, weighing approximately 245 pounds.
Each J-Dig card is conceptualized by Josh Henry, and then given to Peter Henry, sometimes on a bar napkin or scrap of paper. Peter, a professional graphic designer, then turns the concept into a visually interesting piece. The well-designed cards contain simple and straightforward graphics that don’t compete with the message. Once a finished product is ready, Peter’s wife, Cathy Henry, a sales and marketing professional, presents the line to retailers and stationers.
J-Dig Cards is headquartered in Dallas, TX.
