An American Tradition

In 1949 Leanin' Tree founder and Chairman Ed Trumble started selling mail-order Christmas cards to western farmers and ranchers.  Leanin’ Tree greeting cards have been an American tradition ever since.  A lot has changed since 1949.  Leanin’ Tree has grown to offer over 3,000 unique greeting cards in many themes for everyday occasions and major holidays. Leanin' Tree now ships over 20 million greeting cards a year from their headquarters in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.

A simple Mission

Leanin’ Tree’s product mission for more than 60 years has remained unchanged: To bring the best in art and words together in a way that touches your heart.


Creating a Best-Selling Greeting Card Line

First, they comb the country to find the most talented independent artists.   Leanin' Tree does not directly employ a single artist, so the relationships built with these gifted artists are critical.  By working with independent artists and photographers, Leanin' Tree can offer a wide variety of art.  Next, come the verse writers.  They start with an inspiring work of art and then add just the right words to touch your heart.
