Cards for Veterans Day


Today, November 11th, we honor our military veterans.

This day is the anniversary of the signing of the Amistice that ended
World War 1 in 1918.
Also known as Remembrance Day, it is a day to remember the members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty since World War 1.

There are many organizations that have been making & sending cards to soldiers who are serving our country right now. It's so uplifting for them to receive these notes of encouragement.

Today we’d like to share some cards with you that some members of our Design Team have created.
