NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Take note, a married couple in New York have created the first ever line of ecards that don’t suck.

Nat and Armand Prifco are the brains behind the quirky greeting card company, Uncooked. They reject typical cheesy Hallmark cards and make snarky ones instead.

The duo are now “un-cheesing” the ecard market, notorious for producing really crappy cards that “make people want to throw up.”

They’ve made a line of animated ecards for every occasion – available at uncookedland.com – including one that reads: “I know you don’t like celebrating birthdays, but at least you still can. Most people your age are already dead.”

Nat says the public is “over traditional sappy cards” and ready for more sass. The couple believes people are also wittier these days, so sarcasm translates in print better than ever.

Still, they continually strive to find the balance to make cards that are “funny, random, and psychotic – with a hint of sentimental.”
