DANIPRESS : THE BEST CARD COMPANY IN THE WORLD.
When you get a card in the mail what does it leave you with? . . . joy, heart-felt thanks, bliss, elation + SO much more. In a world over-torn with e-mails, texts, e-cards, FB, Twitter, and every other outlet you have to send someone a message through technology, we have lost touch with the soulful creation of a material card that someone has taken the time to purchase, write and head to a post box to send. Not simply pressing send in a few rushed minutes. So when you get the card, you can literally FEEL the love from the other person.
I'm not THAT old, but I still remember the joy of communicating through letters - pen pals in school, writing home when I was at summer camp, getting actual cards in the mail on my birthday. . . .sadly these gestures are a thing of the past.
NOW enter in danipress - a card company with heart, soul, passion and a mission to change the world through air mail, words and photography.
I could try to put into words what it's all about, but Dani is the MASTER of words so I will let her explain :
I started dani press in my neighbourhood coffee shop in Vancouver, Canada after spending years eagerly pushing away from the shore in search of wild adventure, through over twenty countries, from Kenya to New Zealand, Panama to Holland.
These experiences gave me something I had always been looking for - something to contribute in a way only I could. With my own particular way with words, a keen little eye for photography, and an ardent desire to find more inspiring, concise, relatable greeting cards in the aisles of my favourite shops, I started stepping into the stationery industry.
I knew there had to be other like-minded stationery fans hunting for the same thing I was - cards that could get a tear going in your eye, cards you'd want to give a dude, cards you'd hesitate to give away. Cards that were motivating and beautiful and aided our collective need to tell people we love exactly how we feel about them. I went about creating exactly that, for us.
Since those humble 2010 beginnings, dani press has branched into North America and Europe, with world domination in sight.
See the thing is, not only do I know Dani, but she is one of my best, best friends a girl can have! Who else would fly to Africa 3 TIMES to visit me? And countless other times, not for pleasure, but to give her heart + time helping those that have no voice. Dani was there, and she continues to HELP by giving 10% of her profits to These Numbers Have Faces ::
In return for a university scholarship, These Numbers Have Faces students participate in community service, attend leadership & entrepreneurship trainings, and commit to giving one year of tuition back into the program for a new student behind them.
Our goal is to see thousands of talented young people get the opportunities they need to become educated leaders who will change their countries forever.
"Our partnership with dani press is changing lives all over Africa – putting students in college, empowering leaders, and transforming communities. When you make a purchase through dani press, you're partnering with the future leaders of Africa."
– Justin Zoradi, Founder and CEO
