Jazmín Chávez and Armando Somoza started Pinxe Cards a few months ago, a concept that will surely resonate with Bloga folks everywhere.  

Here's how the project came about:

Pinxe Cards came to fruition due to a lack of creative and heartfelt Spanglish greeting cards that captured the humorous cultural nuances of the modern day Latino.  We strive to re-vive classic dichos, play-on-words, and slang in contemporary contexts and creative applications.  People have appreciated the optimistic outlook Pinxe Cards provides through creative, fun, and cross-generational exchanges.  Every design is created with the intention to bring a smile or giggle.  In our near future, we plan to expand to a full stationary line.  But for now, we are taking it one Pinxe Card at a time.

So gente, buy some Pinxe Cards, coño!
