Irreverent Greeting Card Founders — Tom Polzin and Kris Jones


What do you get when you cross the style of a designer and the sense of humor of a middle school counselor? Roast Greeting Cards. What started out as light hearted insults between friends, a running gag via email, ended up becoming a second job for us. Wiping tears of laughter from our cheeks, we thought others might enjoy our off-beat sense of humor and irreverent messages...and we were right.

Roast Greeting Cards express the good-natured joking shared by friends and lovers everywhere when PC is set aside and laughter explodes. There cards ranging from Sarcastic Birthday Cards to Oregon Football Cards to the Rainbow Room — Gay and Lesbian Cards. You can pick out a card for any message you want to deliver, from mild teasing to full-on skewering.

Just to let you know that I received your cards… and they were EVERYTHING I expected. Irreverent with just a dash of black humor. My kind of cards, no doubt about it. Also wanted to let you know that I like the color of the envelopes. It's kinda like a "plain brown wrapper" statement. AND, on top of all that, I was flabbergasted by how quickly I received the order. It took only 5 days!! My hat's definitely off to you and your cohorts at Roast Greetings. A superior product, delivered with expedience…. who could ask for more??"
