NobleWorks Cards seeks to raise $10,000 to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. NobleWorks’ office in New Jersey was spared from the damage of the storm that pounded the east coast, but many others were not as fortunate, which moved the company to start a fundraiser.
Hurricane Sandy was one of the biggest storms to ever hit the east coast leaving people without power, gas, food, clothing and homes. Even though it has been two weeks since the storm passed, many areas still have not recovered.
According to the Huffington Post, at least 121 people have perished in the storm, which caused an estimated $50 billion in property damage and economic losses and ranks as one of the most destructive natural disasters to hit the U.S. Northeast.
Ron Kanfi, president of NobleWorks Cards, wanted to take this opportunity to ask friends, family, customers and supporters of NobleWorks Cards to donate to the NobleWorks online fundraiser so NobleWorks can donate the directly to local charities in the area most at need.
People can donate directly to the NobleWorks fund online at FundRazr, an online fundraising website.

NobleWorks has added several hilarious new cartoons from the creative, crazy minds of illustrators Maria Scrivan and David Skidmore to its recent introduction of humorous everyday greeting cards.
The six new birthday cards from Maria Scrivan feature deceptively cute illustrations that set up some super-clever jokes - from bunny slippers that multiply in the closet to Rapunzel losing her hair extensions. David Skidmore's "Sweet & Sour" cartoons appear on six new birthday cards and one anniversary card. His unique illustrative style offers an in-your-face attitude towards aging, with messages such as "It's a dog-eat-dog world, and I'm one of the bitches."
Scrivan and Skidmore are among the latest to join the NobleWorks family of wacky cartoonists - which includes Tim Whyatt, Scott Metzger, Stan Eales, Tom Cheney, Glenn McCoy, John Billette and many others. Each of these artists brings just the right amount of "crazy" to NobleWorks' card lineup.
All of the hysterical new cards from Scrivan and Skidmore include full-color illustrations on the inside that continue the laugh-out-loud gags - and add more bang for the buck. These cards are printed on demand in the U.S. using recycled paper and retail for $2.95.###

NobleWorksCards (NobleWorks Inc) is generating tons of buzz with its latest release of the highly anticipated "Weeds" line of 18 greeting cards, featuring the pot-fueled imagery, characters and themes from the popular Showtime original series.
A bit on the edge and borderline legal, this initial roll-out of 18 hilarious cards includes numerous birthday designs as well as one get-well card and one "Grassias" (thank you) card. These cards deliver laugh-your-grass-off messages such as, "An Apple A Day Makes A Great Bong" and "Doobie, Or Not Doobie? What Was The Question Again?"
Entering its seventh season this year, "Weeds" is about a pot-selling single mom, played by Mary-Louise Parker, who dodges disaster but has a special talent for manipulating her friends, her family and the law. NobleWorks' "Weeds" cards feature many of the show's favorite characters, including Nancy, Andy, Silas, Shane and Doug.
NobleWorks' licensing agreement with Showtime Networks Inc., in partnership with CBS Consumer Products, grants NobleWorks the rights for "Weeds" greeting cards in the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia.
"We're reaching for new highs with our 'Weeds' line," states Ron Kanfi, president of NobleWorks. "We expect these cards to be a big hit!"
All of NobleWorks' new "Weeds" cards retail for $2.95 and are printed on demand in the U.S. using recycled paper. The cards will be available for sale on NobleWorks' website at http://www.nobleworkscards.com/humor-cards-by-line-weeds.html###

NobleWorks is giving the finger to cancer with the introduction of two "F*** Cancer" cards. Since cancer is really no joke, however, the company is donating 50% of proceeds from the sale of these cards to the American Cancer Society and the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Blatantly delivering the F-bomb to cancer, these cards are available in two designs - one emblazoned with a pink-ribbon, the other featuring a more masculine, striped pattern. Proceeds from sales of the pink-ribbon card benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.; proceeds from sales of the striped card go to the American Cancer Society.
"We believe these cards simply spell out what we all really think and wish to say," says NobleWorks President Ron Kanfi. "I suppose this is one of those situations when using the F word is really the only way to convey one's sentiment." He adds that NobleWorks - known for its irreverent line of humor greeting cards - is "probably the only publisher that can get away with tackling such a sensitive topic in such a blunt manner."
Both cards are blank inside, retail for $2.95, are printed on demand using recycled paper, and are available for immediate delivery. They're available at http://www.NobleWorksCards.com as well as through enGreet at http://www.engreet.com, which offers direct ship and customization of the cards.###

Says March: "I am excited to be working with NobleWorksCards.com on my new line of greeting cards. I love being able to make people laugh and smile, and these will certainly do that! I hope to reach a wide audience of my fans from 'Project Runway,' as well as people who have never seen or heard of me (there must be some somewhere!)." March says that the inspiration for his designs has always been humor. "If a wig is funny when it's two feet tall, why not make it three feet tall? Or ten? When they ask 'How high is your hair?' I say, '...how high is your ceiling?'

Hot off the press is the new humorous paperback book from Running Press, "Life Is Like a Box of Dirty Diapers: And Other Twisted Truisms" ($9.95 retail). Written by Ron Kanfi, president of the well-known humor company NobleWorks, Inc., "Life is Like a Box of Dirty Diapers" offers 128 pages of spoofs on classic corporate motivational posters.
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 1, 2010
Anything but corporate, this hilarious book features a collection of irreverent parodies that capitalizes on the familiar look and style of the traditional motivational (or demotivational) poster, but its original combination of outrageous text and full-color photos packs a surprising -- and hilarious -- punch. Covering a wide range of topical issues from career to politics, relationships to environmentalism, these parodies may not help people find their true potential, but they will make them laugh out loud!
Among the clever, sometimes off-color, "motivational posters" included in this book are and "Good Will: One that leaves you with a large inheritance," "Economics: The art of deciphering the charges on your phone bill" and "Purpose: Everyone has to have one; mine is watching TV."
Kanfi says that the motivational-poster format lent itself well to many jokes. "It's current and familiar," he explains. "It was a great vehicle to deliver jokes and to comment on day-to-day life situations." Kanfi describes the book as "a fun and entertaining book that's perfect for the coffee table or bathroom," adding, "It's visually appealing and it's hysterical. I haven't met one person who has been able to put it down!"

What's fun, a little naughty and just turned 30? It's NobleWorks, Inc.! Launched at the National Stationery Show in 1980, this Hoboken, NJ-based line of humor greeting cards has been keeping consumers laughing and retailers smiling for 30 years.
What's the secret to NobleWorks' and http://www.NobleWorksCards.com longtime success? "Publishing humor that is current and relevant to our customers' lives while continually developing new, updated looks and lines," states Ron Kanfi, who joined NobleWorks soon after its launch and today serves as the company's president and creative director. "Customer relations and rep relations are a top priority as well," he adds.
NobleWorks was founded by Christopher Noble, a house painter, and Jay Purvis, a magazine art director, who started the company in Noble's kitchen with a $400 loan from his mother. The original line of 12 cards was more artsy than edgy, and hand-painted with flat latex paint. (Sadly, both Noble and Purvis eventually succumbed to AIDS.)
Today, NobleWorks, also known as "The Humor Company," features more than 1,500 everyday and seasonal greeting cards designs -- ranging from slightly silly to somewhat risqué -- including birthday cards, Christmas cards, Valentine cards, Father's Day cards, Mother's Day cards, Graduation cards and more. The company partners with designers and cartoonists worldwide - offering humor greeting cards that feature cartoons from Tim Whyatt, McCoy Bros., Funny Paper and many others. The company's Talk Bubbles line, introduced in 1984, was the industry's first "retro" card concept - combining vintage imagery with hilarious verses. Other popular humor greeting card lines from NobleWorks include Planet Fabulous, Weekly World News, Hot Betty, Spot On Button (cards with removable message buttons) and much more.
In addition to greeting cards, the company offers several of its designs on memo pads and mugs. Also complementing the line are two humorous books authored by Kanfi and published by Running Press, including "Saint Misbehavin': Modern-Day Saints You've Never Heard Of" and "Life Is Like a Box of Dirty Diapers - And Other Twisted Truisms."
Politics, religion and current events are among themes given a humorous - and sometimes controversial - spin at NobleWorks "We're able to adapt the line at a moment's notice to keep it fresh and current," says Kanfi, noting that the company's slogan is "Dare to Laugh."
NobleWorks' complete product line can be viewed at its website - http://www.nobleworkscards.com - where visitors to the site can also access the company's blog as well as send free e-cards. A fully functional wholesale version of the site is soon to be launched.
