Enlightenment Greeting Cards was started as a small company in 1984 in Perth, Australia. Working around a kitchen table, often late into the night, Jen Rogers was busy transforming small pieces of clay into buttons of all shapes and sizes. Many of the first designs, which are still popular today, were inspired by Australia’s aboriginal rich ethnic artworks and distinctive wild animals. Over the years Incomparable began specializing in the creation of handmade greeting cards.
As the company evolved, ladies from the local community were hired and trained in the art of button making. Today, Jen’s entire family, as well as 45 women from the local community are involved in the business. Most of the Incomparable team had never held a paintbrush before they joined the company and are now absolute masters of their brushes and justifiably proud of their work. The ladies sense of belonging within the company and skills as crafters not only gives them tremendous pleasure but also provides them with economic empowerment and has uplifted all their families.
If you’re in the Eastern US and interested in joining our company as an employee or part-time (we’re expanding!) then please let us know. We’re always looking for strong dedicated women for our greeting cards.
