ABOUT READ BETWEEN THE LINES®

HI. WE'RE SO TICKLED PINK AND HONORED YOU'RE HERE.
YOU COULD BE ANYWHERE RIGHT NOW...BUT YOU'RE HERE. PINCH ME!

My name is Melinda Jones. A few years ago, at the prompting of my good and fearless friend, Jean, I started a little blog called Super Much Love. Writing for it engaged more honesty and fun than I could ever have imagined. The feedback I received from readers gave me the courage I needed to try my hand at something I’d always really, truly, wildly dreamed about. (We all have something like that – it’s often the stuff you sketch on paper napkins and boarding passes and church programs.) For me, it was creating a line of cards.

I wanted to write words that moved people to braveness of the heart or a better day. I wanted to print them on paper so good it would make you sigh with the yum of it all. The design had to be modern, warm, and gender neutral, so that even my brother, Morgan (who writes the best dang letters), would feel comfortable using the line. Cards that serve men and women with equal amounts of thoughtfulness and quality. Laughter and relationships don’t really have a gender, after all. The good stuff is the good stuff.

It was important to me that the cards would speak to the feelings you have about events and the people involved, rather than focusing on the events themselves. That’s why our products don’t say ‘Happy Birthday!’ but, rather, ‘You’re The Best And The Mostest,’ or ‘Heck Yes.’ The whole reason you’re pumped for someone’s life event is because it’s an occasion to celebrate what he or she means to you, and the amazing role they play in your life and in this world. That’s what the cake and candles are really about. Amazingness.

My background is in advertising, marketing, real estate investment and one tech start-up. All were huge for me; they involved challenging work and were filled with super talented people to learn from. In retrospect, each undertaking taught me that words have always been my favorite thing. What’s more fun, more memorable or more drop-jaw powerful than the right words whispered over you or into your life? Words are part of music, part of art, part of love. They do the heavy lifting yet are light as air. I dig ‘em.

Read Between The Lines is all about things to make you smile. Cause we all need that. Right now. Tomorrow. And on the second Tuesday of next month, when a fender bender meets a weird text message meets a freaking pimple on your nose before THE meeting, for Pete’s sake. We all need reminders of joy, that things get better, that life is inherently funny and that people are for us. (A real note in the real mail really can change everything.)

Thanks, have fun here and please let us know how we can help you at any time. This might be the Internet, but it’s nothing useful if it doesn’t connect us beyond a pageview, K? ;) Call or shoot us an email and it’ll make our day, always!
