Since 2004, every stunning Evergreen card and bookmark has been individually hand-cut by our skilled card-cutting ladies in rural Shanxi Province, China. Every purchase you make goes directly to the support of these hard-working women and their families.

Welcome to Evergreen Cards!

Begun in early 2004, Evergreen Cards is an economic development project dedicated to providing job skills' training and work opportunities for low-income women in the small villages of Yangqu County, Shanxi Province, China.

In this poor, primarily agricultural rural area—where the annual average family income is still less than U.S. $400—many minimally-educated women must find a way to help provide for their families.  Sadly, the availability of wholesome work in these subsistence farming communities and villages is still virtually non-existent. 

There are also a significant number of women in these villages who, due to personal disabilities, have limited mobility.  Others are the primary care-givers for family members with severe health issues or disabilities.  All need to be able to work from home to provide for the needs of their families.

Evergreen Cards’ focus is to identify and interview families—showing dignity and respect—who face these kinds of difficult circumstances.  And then, reach out and empower these women in a tangible way through God’s love by teaching them the skill of hand-cutting cards and providing employment.

Today, with around 30 active card-cutters, Evergreen Cards annually produces tens of thousands of nearly 150 different designs of intricately beautiful, individually hand-cut greeting cards and laminated bookmarks.  This site, Evergreen Cards USA, serves as our primary distribution arm for the North American market.
