Play Strong started on the kitchen table of a sports family in San Diego. A Dad and his 7-year-old soccer-loving-daughter teamed up to draw and color cards, invitations, and games for her upcoming soccer themed birthday party. That fun day - creating, drawing, expressing gratitude through art and special time together - was the beginning of something really fun.

At Play Strong spreading joy and connecting people through the love of sports is not just a job, it's our passion. We're a team of sports lovers, from active and former athletes, to coaches, to die-hard fanatics, united by a desire to bring a smile to the faces of everyone we reach and help them connect with their teammates and loved ones in meaningful ways through the shared language of sports.

We take great pride in our premium quality, made in the USA greeting cards and motivational products. Each is designed to deliver a message of joy, celebration,  encouragement and inspiration, along with authentic hand-drawn and painted sports art and illustration. So whether it's a birthday card for the little slugger in your life, a thank you card for the coach who inspired an unforgettable team experience, or an empowering note of encouragement for a teammate facing a challenge, give the expressive gift of encouragement and celebrate special sports moments!

Play Strong is built on the values of family, dedication, celebration, and hard work. We believe in the power of sports to bring people together, to teach valuable life lessons, and to create lasting memories. And we're committed to making a positive impact on the world one card at a time. Join us on this journey and let us help you celebrate the special athletes and sports fans in your life.

We believe that everyone deserves to feel the joy and connection that sports can bring. That's why we donate a portion of every sale to help kids in need around the world. Every card makes a powerful difference in so many ways!

And that's another cool story. The brother of the soccer-loving-daughter started a charity with a neighborhood basketball tournament called JamQuest as an eighth grader. JamQuest is still going strong, making a huge difference in the lives of kids and families. Check out their incredible mission to help kids around the world beat poverty through education at
