American Greetings Corporation has signed a licensing agreement with Ellen DeGeneres to develop a line of greeting cards that will feature illustrations of the comedian along with her quirky observations.
Entitled the "ellen collection", the set will include 32 specially designed cards featuring illustrations of the talk-show host cracking wise about birthdays, anniversaries and holidays; offering words of friendship and encouragement and many others, all of which has made her project "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" such a hit.
"I look at having a line of cards as another extension of being a host; helping you wish your loved ones well, piggybacking on your birthday greetings," DeGeneres said in a statement Tuesday March 20th. "I like to be up in the middle of everything and doing it this way is much easier than crashing parties."
The cards are expected to be available in stores this summer.
