Today we’d like to introduce you to Thao Lam.
Hi Thao, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
We make offensive greeting cards so you get the glory of being funny as f**k. Why? You know your friends and family well. Really well. These are people you laugh with ‘til it fucking hurts. Your ride-or-dies. You’re inappropriate. You say offensive shit. No one judges.
We launched Dirty Pop Cards in July 2020 because we want people laughing together. Way more frequently. The harder the better. When people open our dirty 3D cards, half the room laughs out loud while the other half gasps, “that’s offensive”. B-fuckin-ingo.
It didn’t take long for us to adopt a company philosophy of “Fuck ‘Em”. Life’s too short to give a shit about not offending people. So, every time we see customers cackle like hyenas, we do a little happy dance. When someone complains because they’re offended, we do an aggressive happy dance and say, “Fuck ‘Em”.
Think about it… Ten years from now, is anyone going to remember that shitty, generic greeting card they’ve seen a thousand times? Not a fucking chance. Give them one of our offensive 3D pop-up cards and they’ll talk about your rude ass joke card for decades. If you’re lucky, it’ll end up on their refrigerator.
That’s Hall of Fame status. Whatever occasion you’re shopping for, our adult greeting cards will be worth every penny. Still, asking why? Because they actually “speak your language”. So stop with the sweet, boring, lovey, pharmacy-quality bullshit cards. That’s not how people talk. You know you’re funnier than that. We know you’re funnier than that.
Dirty Pop Cards is here to make you a fucking hero. Take advantage of any occasion. Make a joke. Be funny. Be fucking rude. You know it’s okay because this is for your people. Give them the gift of a big ass jaw-drop AND gut-busting laugh. You’ll thank us later.
Who the fuck are we? We are the greeting card company that never grew up. We make jaw-droppingly hilarious greeting cards for those with a ‘twisted’ sense of humor. We design shocking, funny, playful, and naughty 3D pop-up greeting cards inspired by sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll.
Still don’t get it? We removed the big words for you… Click the website, and buy 3D cards insult. Open the card and make pee pants. All people would laugh. Some people are shocked. One friend film. You’re hilarious as a person. Dirty Pop Cards are good. And a reminder for those who read good… We make offensive greeting cards so you get the glory of being funny as f**k.
Your equally rude friends at Dirty Pop Cards
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I wish I could say business was smooth and easy, but that’s far from the truth. Truth is, with any new business, you face many bumpy roads and obstacles. Some may say it’s too hard and give up, while others who are truly passionate and believe in their business will continuously learn from obstacles and evolve their business.
Dirty Pop Cards has had many and when I say many, I mean this was the most obstacles we’ve ever faced in any business we’ve started. It’s not all business struggles but also personal. Due to the nature of our cards, we’ve had both friends and family feel what we were doing is wrong and have since distanced themselves from us.
Business-wise – there are tons, for example, we are not able to advertise on any major platforms because our cards are considered pornography. One of the office spaces were attempted to lease was declined after viewing our Instagram and felt it was inappropriate. The list goes on, but I’m still here and I’m ready to take on what’s next.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I really love what I do. I get to work with an amazing team that I’ve built with individuals who are passionate about what they do. Together, we get to create products that connect people through humor. Laughter is the best cure for anything.
We’re most known for our NSFW designs, which you may have noticed on our site. They’re jaw-droppingly hilarious and unexpected. We take pride in our designs and hope that others can enjoy them as much as we do.
What do you like and dislike about the city?
We are located in Mesa, Arizona. What I like best about Mesa is all of its food options! We’re big foodies! What do I like least about our city? During the summer, our temperature peaks at around 120*. Stay inside, drink lots of water, and you won’t have a heat stroke. We don’t joke about the heat here, it’s the real deal.
