Hispanics: The Search for Latin-Themed Christmas Cards is Over!

WESTON, FL – July 26, 2007 – The Occasions Group announces a partnership with Lantigua Designs that brings Spanish and bilingual Christmas greeting cards to the Hispanic market through the new retail catalog, Libre-Creación, la base para tus ideas .

“There was a lack of original Latin-flavored product in the Holiday market and a need for bilingual cards. We saw Lantigua Designs' ideas and knew they were what our market would want to send to their friends and family: Latino Holiday designs made especially for the Hispanic market,” said Claudia Goffan, Hispanic Market Business Development Director at The Occasions Group.

Lantigua Designs Christmas cards are colorful, witty and express the customs of many Latin ethnicities as well as the various traditions they all have in common. The Holiday cards are sold in boxed sets or personalized. They will be sold through the 30-page catalog, which was distributed to over 3,000 retailers of The Occasions Group nationwide. A local retailer can be found by calling 1-800-448-2839.

In addition to the Lantigua Designs' Christmas line, Libre-Creación also has a variety of blank invitations that can be used for baptism, communion, birthdays, anniversary, quinces, wedding and other special occasions. These invitations can be printed and assembled at home, allowing for unlimited creativity and personal expression.

“We are honored to have been chosen by the leading company in the greeting card and invitation industry,” said Liz Lantigua, Creative Director and Founder of Lantigua Designs, Inc. “They have a great vision and commitment to serving the Hispanic market with quality products.”
