New Geeky Valentine’s Day Selections From Ghost Girl Greetings
  |  @   |  

If you’re looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day card for the special geek in your life, look to no one but the Ghost Girls, Laurie and Toni at Ghost Girl Greetings. In business over a year, the ladies have their own Etsy store where they sell pop culture and horror-themed greeting cards for all occasions, and celebrations. They gained some great momentum in 2018 when their cards were endorsed by Dana DeLorenzo, who played Kelly Maxwell on Ash vs Evil Dead and they even did an AvED collaboration with her.

Their latest series for the upcoming holiday of love features beautiful artwork as well as pun-tastic messages.
