The trip to the greeting-card aisle can be an agonizing one, sifting through the overly sentimental and the inappropriately funny. But what if none of the cards actually works, say, if you’re looking for a wedding card for two brides or a Father’s Day card for two dads?
Enter Teazled, an LGBT-owned greeting-card company based here in Las Vegas. Dina Proto, who co-owns Teazled with her wife Dina “Dom” Poist-Proto, says a Mother’s Day card made by their daughter was the seed.
“She wrote how sad she was that there were no cards that identified her family.”
That inspired a journal full of ideas, and the company now has cards in local Albertsons stores and a presence online (teazled.com). With endearing sentiments, fun fonts and engagement-announcement-worthy photos, the cards are like those down the street at Hallmark, but they add vital nuance to love on paper.
