Gunder-friend Productions



You are invited to listen to music by Helen's friends while you browse through the notecard scenes. Go to the music room, select a song, then return to this page. The music files have been prepared for a 28K modem, and the speed would seem to work for most computers.

The notecards:
Each notecard consists of folded, high quality, heavy, linen paper that measures 5x7 inches and is embossed with Helen's name and a simple inset box for a 3 1/2 x 5 inch color photo. The notecards are hand-assembled and come with envelopes made of matching linen paper. If requested, the notecards can be autographed and/or packaged in cellophane sleeves or in gift boxes. Click here to view a reasonable facsimile sample of the notecard format.


For the most part, Helen has discontinued offering notecards. However, you may contact her to see what she still has in her limited inventory or to have her produce a notecard or photograph for you. BTW, she no longer sells blank notecard stock.

You may custom order enlargements of these scenes. The common sizes are 6x9, 8x12, and 12x16 inches. We can have the matting done at the Frame Shop in Ames using a signed, photo white mat or deliver your photographs unmatted. Let us know your photo needs, and we will help you make the right choice and quote a price.
Gift certificates:
These cards and enlargements make excellent gifts that friends, colleagues, or relatives can use for correspondence or to display as fine art. If you would like a gift certificate, go to the gift certificate order form. If you are daring, you could select the images you think would make the best gift; however, the advantage of this web site is that the recipients of your gifts could come to the show room and select the images that appeal most to them. Go to: gift certificate order form.
Order fulfillment:
Ours is a small business with one staff person who is a generalist who doesn't devote herself full-time to filling orders. Also, we don't keep huge inventories on hand. The most efficient system for us is to accumulate orders for a month then take the time to focus on getting them assembled and mailed. However, if you need immediate attention, please say so on your order.
