Since 1938, retailers of men’s goods have shamelessly promoted recognition for the male authority figure in your life. In addition to ties, power tools, electronics, and other masculine merchandise, greeting cards are a popular method of expressing your feelings when you are incapable of coming up with words of your own. Most include a sentimental poem or a fart joke, but I have noticed one market that is disconcertingly overlooked: the father of an unexpected (and possibly unwanted) child.
Whether it be from a teen pregnancy or a drunken one-night stand, unplanned fatherhood is common. I only assume that this neglected niche is a result of shame or embarrassment, but being one that is fearless (or tactless, depending on whom you ask) when addressing taboo topics, I don’t mind tapping into this demographic with specialty Father’s Day cards of their very own.
If you have a baby daddy in your life, feel free to share. The graphics and layout of these cards may not be Hallmark-worthy, but what do you expect when you’re reading a free website.
The left panel is the front of the card. The right panel is inside the card.

From the angry father to baby daddy:
What do you think? Do I have a chance making enough money to retire on an untouched market?
