Here at NobleWorks Cards, we don't just have a regular old owner, creative director or president, we have a chief cardologist. As one of the original members of the NobleWorks crew, our Chief Cardologist Ron Kanfi joined his good friends Christopher Noble, a house painter, and Jay Purvis, art director for Conde Nast's Vanity Fair and GQ magazines, to create NobleWorks Cards in 1980. Back then, NobleWorks was a bit more squeaky clean (despite its location: the Meatpacking District in New York City, which was once a self-admittedly sleazy Manhattan neighborhood) and printed cards using Noble's leftover latex paint. It has since grown to reinvent the world of adult greeting cards and create a new meaning behind "naughty, funny" cards. Kanfi became NobleWorks' creative director after the company tragically lost Chris Noble to AIDS in 2001.
Today, you can find NobleWorks greeting cards in Michigan, Montana and Malaysia thanks to their ever-expanding online store. Now known as "The Humor Company," NobleWorks sells funny cards wholesale, and acts as a publisher, online retailer and industry leader. Their online store is stocked with over 3,000 funny cards, images and comics that range from family-friendly to slightly silly to full-on risqué. Kanfi says nothing is too off-the-wall for NobleWorks, and their cards touch on religion, politics and current events and use the F-word whenever possible.

Kanfi doesn't do it all himself, though. NobleWorks is staffed by a crew of card-loving humorists, some of which have been with the company for over 15 years. Together, they strive to create high-quality, hilarious greeting cards that are made with eco-friendly materials at a good price. It is the belief of Kanfi and crew that "No matter how the world around us changes, humor will always provide great relief and healing."
