Gay-Lesbian Greeting Card Entrepreneur Expands Product Line, Goes National
BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Homoquotables, the leading gay-lesbian greeting card company, is expanding its product line and adding national distribution.
“Since news of our tasteful line of gay and lesbian greeting cards was first announced, requests for our products have soared,” said Dan McLellan. “My focus now is on making my cards more accessible. Two stores on the East Coast and one here in Boulder are stocking them. I’ve also found a way to give customers a much quicker turnaround.”
McLellan has made good on his promise to expand his line of cards. His website, www.Homoquotables.com, now carries cards for gays and lesbians both, and has increased the number photographs to choose from to 24.
“We changed printers, too, and the quality of the printing has gone from good to exceptional,” he says proudly.
Homoquotables.com came to national attention a few months ago as a site offering gays and lesbians a place to find that rare product, a romantic, tender card to express deep feelings for a mate. The interest in these cards is booming, and McLellan believes that stores across the country will soon be stocking them.
The cards showcased on Homoquotables.com are rare in the marketplace. The full line of 24 cards is targeted not only to gays and lesbians in love with their partners, but also to family members who want to send their gay and lesbian loved ones appropriate wedding, anniversary, and birthday cards. Loving sentiment is captured in stunning black and white photography and all cards are printed on high quality paper. Online cards can be customized to suit the buyer’s needs.

“Right now our cards are being carried in Giovanni’s Room in Philadelphia, Blue Stocking in New York, and Boulder Bookstore. I’m hoping to interest a national chain so that gays and lesbians and their families across the country will have easy access to tasteful cards. I want people to be able to pick up a card for a gay or lesbian loved one’s birthday, or wedding, or any other occasion, without any hassle.”
McLellan welcomes inquiries from all stores, local as well as national, inviting interested parties to contact him.

“I’m sort of working from the East Coast and the West Coast toward the middle,” McLellan explains. “I’ve also had inquiries from Britain, France, and Germany, so who knows? Homoquotables could go world-wide!” He grins engagingly, and adds, “Of course I have another full-time job right now, so that may take a few more months.”
Homoquotables.com also hosts McLellan’s blog, which he says puts a positive spin on today’s news that concerns the gay and lesbian community. “Right now I’m doing a lot of blogging about marriage equality and how that is progressing through the courts,” he explains. I want people to be able to keep up with the issues, but I work really hard to keep the site upbeat.”
