Red Cap Cards is a Los Angeles-based greeting card company that celebrates the art of independent illustration and the joy of a handwritten letter.

Owned by husband-and-wife team, Hal Mertz and Carrie Gifford, Red Cap Cards has been in business for almost ten years, and strives to create a platform for emerging artists to reach a broad audience, fitting art into the every-day. Hal and Carrie have hand-selected a wide variety of artists and illustrators, notable for their work and achievements in children’s book illustration, animation, design and modern art. Each illustrator offers a unique perspective, and is seen as a storyteller, with a visual story to tell.
