The Card Bureau is a woman and immigrant owned stationery and gift company. We got our start in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Washington DC selling DC-themed greeting cards in local bookshops in 2016. Since then, we've expanded to offer more products in more stores across the country (700 stores and counting!). The ideas behind our greeting cards and gift items are inspired by politics, feminism, and current events.
Founder & CEO
Janie is a recovering journalist turned greeting card entrepreneur. A Michigander, (though she was born in Albania and immigrated to the U.S. at 5 years old) she moved to Washington to work in politics after graduating from the University of Michigan in 2013. She started The Card Bureau in 2016 as a side hustle that served as a creative outlet from election coverage. As a journalist Janie has worked for FiveThirtyEight, Huffington Post, and CQ Roll Call/Economist. Now she just writes copy for cards. Janie enjoys making products that help people think, laugh and connect with those they care about.
