"IF NOT US, WHO? IF NOT NOW, WHEN?"
– Tattoo we saw on some guys arm
In 1998, our founder, Columbus Woodruff set out to create a company that would offer low cost, high-quality printing for all to enjoy.
He took in orders from his promoter buddies, designed projects himself, and delivered jobs each night after he got off the clock from his “real job.”
In 2012, serial-entrepreneur, John Gadd acquired Hotcards and would begin the process of rebranding, launching and developing new technology - and taking Hotcards to the next level.
Today, Hotcards prints over 10 million postcards each week and over 5 billion square inches of paper every year!

The primary goal of every business, band and brand is to BECOME KNOWN™. It’s simple; until you’re known – you don’t have sales, fans, or followers. Hotcards is all about helping you get your message out.
IT'S WHAT WE DO BEST - AND IT'S ALL WE DO
A technology company that happens to print
There would be no Hotcards without the Internet (thanks, Al Gore!). Nearly 100% of our orders come in via this website and are managed, processed and produced using incredible automation and state-of-the-art, computer-integrated manufacturing facilities. How else do you think we could offer products up to 80% less than your corner print shop?!
Focus on delivery
We're anything but normal at Hotcards. Many of us grew up a little bit different than our peers. What we do know, is we work great together as a team to deliver you insanely awesome, insanely fast, and insanely affordable products.Order now
If you think about it, 'cult' is over 50% of the word culture – and culture is the glue that bonds Hotcards. Every company has a culture by default. Some do nothing to improve it. Others (like us) do EVERYTHING to improve it. We realize that our success is a direct result of the culture we embrace, which is why we take it so seriously. On Hiring at Hotcards: Not a culture fit? Not a fit.
Guinness World Record Holder
Taking place at what was dubbed the "Hotcards Burn" in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, Hotcards organized a group of 21 daredevils to break the Guinness World Record for "The Most Number of People Performing Simultaneous Full Body Burns" - and raise over $10,000 for charity! The group included notable politicians, several CEOs, radio personalities and local business owners. The money raised went to the Cleveland Foodbank and Brick by Brick, an Ohio-based charity that aids women and children in South Africa.
The event made international news for days on end, and proved that Hotcards truly are... HOT.Watch Our Documentary
