Invitation Buzz is an online marketplace that will bring exposure to designers, retailers, publishers and all those related to the greeting card and stationery industry. Our website will offer a business directory along with highlighting the latest trends, from eco-friendly paper to the most stylish baby announcements. We will also appeal to the professional design community by offering an online submission system for contest holders to launch their own design contests to keep their collections fresh.
Invitation Buzz is run by women in their early 30’s, very trend forward business women looking for that perfect landing page for their website to represent Invitation Buzz.
