Pirates seem to be the summer theme at JibJab. Not only do we call our office a Pirate Ship, but our new Birthday card this week features pirates celebrating in Party Your Arrr’s Off.

Let’s take a moment to touch base with our artists (pun intended). In order to make sure they had the right look for each of our 30 Major League Baseball teams, they had to spend weeks poring over logo designs, team colors and uniforms. The next step was sketching a first draft of the main […]
