      ABOUT         BRAILLE
 

Braille Cards is just one website of many that fall under the Braille Mission which is located in Omaha, Nebraska.

Below is a picture after the first day of preparing braille cards to go live.  The picture was taken in the Braille Art Studio which is also part of the Braille Mission.

The wall in the background is part of the Braille Art Gallery which displays the first creations from the Braille Art Studio.
 
About Us
 
The history of Braille Cards Dot Com began with a meeting between two friends; one sighted and one blind. The blind friend wanted to provide greeting cards that were available in Braille and other raised images since 1976. The sighted friend wanted to be able to send his blind friend an accessible braille card that he could re-read over and over again without the assistance of a reader.

On March 4, 2000, in Lamar, Missouri, Bob Varney had the idea to to produce braille greeting cards.  Using AT&T dial up internet service, the domain BrailleCards.com was registered.  Later that month Braillecards, LLC was created and what started out as an idea became Bob's dream come true.
