Welcome to the GCU Wiki
Thanks to our growing community of artists (3,000+), Greeting Card Universe (GCU) has quickly become the world's largest online source for unique and hard to find paper greeting cards. With over 600,000 card designs, GCU has just about any card a shopper could want, and if we don't, shoppers can request a new design and our artist community will create some for their consideration within approximately 48 hours. With your help, GCU is well on the way to revolutionizing the paper greeting card industry.
About the GCU Artists' Wiki
This GCU Artists' wiki is a reference guide for artists creating greeting cards to sell at Greeting Card Universe. We have included sections covering account set-up, store set-up, card creating, and administrative features. Although some of of this information is found on the GCU site and discussed routinely in the GCU forum, this wiki is the primary set of GCU artists' guidelines.
WHAT IT IS NOT: This wiki is not the place to ask technical, usage, or account questions. Please refer to the GCU Forum Support, Feedback, and Artist Chatter sections as needed. If you need to contact us for individual reasons, such as an earnings issue, please use the GCU Contact us page. If you have feedback on this wiki, you can simply send us an email.
Below are several videos from our artists.
