Would you like custom greeting cards to send to your AFC members?

The “sample” AFC cards below were made by Mary Heikkinen at Lake-Sumter State College (LSSC). If you’re interested in having cards made up for your college, let her know by emailing her at [email protected]

All orders can be placed by emailing Mary at LSSC.

10 cards $15.00 $1.50 each
20 cards $25.00 $1.25 each
30 cards $30.00 $1.00 each

The cards can be made up using any of the following sayings:

• Happy Birthday
• Thinking of You
• In Sympathy
• Thank You
• Get Well Soon
• Congratulations
• Best Wishes

NOTE: The logos on the “sample” cards were based on the logo that CF uses. If you would like to use your own school’s logo, please supply that when you place your order.
