Searching for a birthday card the other day, I noticed in Rite-Aid stores, there were no Hallmark cards only American Greetings and in Publix grocery store, they only stocked Hallmark greeting cards.   What was noticeably absent, or maybe not, because I can’t really recall hearing about them until today was “African-American Expressions” greeting cards.

Founder, Gregory Perkins, indicates on the company profile, AAE has been existence for 26 years. 

“Today, African American Expressions sells over 2,500,000 cards annually with over 500 original designs. This multimillion dollar operation has expanded to include many other inspirational gifts such as calendars, handcrafted figurines, journals, mugs, magnets, bookmarks, Christmas decorations and more.”    


The company also sells wholesale. Check them out at AmericasMart – Atlanta  . For retail customers; visit African American Expressions  at  and download their (pdf) catalog
