Hello and welcome to the Krafters Korner braille greeting card page.
Have you ever wished for a card that will receive more than a few seconds of attention when it is received? The Krafters Korner, a division of the National Federation of the Blind, largest organization of blind people in the country, has created just what you need!
Greeting cards are available for a number of occasions. Each card has a tactile picture on the front with no ink. A child or anyone young at heart can color or paint the design within the tactile lines of the shape displayed. Since blind people prefer simple designs, our cards show simple designs that are readily recognizable to touch or by sight. Inside the card is a simple wish in uncontracted Braille only. Included with each card is the Braille alphabet with a little information about Braille. Thus, you are sending your wishes along with a little learning. And best of all, you are supporting a non-profit organization that helps scores of blind and visually impaired people as well.
Each card is made from heavy cardstock in a variety of colors. The card is made of an outer card with the tactile picture on the front and an inner card in white containing a greeting in grade 1 braille on the right-hand side and a blank page on the left side to allow you to add your own personal message if desired. Each card comes with an envelope for mailing.
On this page you will first find a list of the available occasion cards including what the greeting says. Following this, you will find a form for ordering each type of tactile picture card. A description of the card is included. The combo box will allow you to select the occasion for that card and then an edit box will allow you to type in the color you like for that card.
If you do not want the card listed, move down the page to find the next card and use the form to order that card.
Here are the six greetings available for your card/cards.
1. All occasion (Large cards only):
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.”
2. Best wishes:
