OUR MISSION

Card My Yard exists to serve our communities with joy and partner with local organizations to help them celebrate. As the original yard sign and yard greeting company we strive to grow and expand while serving the needs of our customers.

OUR STORY

Card My Yard is the original yard greeting service based in Austin, Texas, that specializes in celebrating life's big moments with a customized yard greeting service. Amy Arnold and Jessica Stanley, both moms of three, met at a women's Bible Study and quickly became friends. In October 2014, the two moms founded Card My Yard with a simple goal to serve families and make a positive impact in the community as small business owners. Amy and Jessica made a commitment to say “yes” to everything they could. By 2017, the company had grown so much in volume and interest, they knew that in order to continue reaching new markets, they would need to take the company to the next level and franchise. In May 2017, their husbands James Stanley and Josh Arnold joined the effort as the four founded Card My Yard Franchising, LLC, to launch the brand across the United States. The company now includes 470+ franchises in 45 states and has helped celebrate hundreds of thousands of birthdays and celebrations across the country. They are honored to share in celebrating milestone moments in others' lives and hearing stories of great joy and accomplishment.
