Vintage Greeting Cards by Gibson

Gibson Greeting Cards published this Snow White birthday card from the 1980s. Embossed raised figures. Dimensions: 7.75" x 5.25". "Happy Birthday to Someone Special."


They also created a Snow White "get well soon" series in the 1950s, referred to as the 7 Day Illness Card Set. A stiff paper envelope (5" x 6") housed seven numbered greeting cards (4" x 4"). The idea was to "Send One A Day For A Week." The set is pictured in Hake's Official Price Guide to Disney Collectibles (2nd edition, 2007, p.859).
