A puzzling greeting
When just any old greeting card won't do, send a PuzzleGram from Jig-Hellos. PuzzleGram -- a greeting card in puzzle form -- offers all the traditional messages: thinking of you, happy birthday, get well soon, etc. Personal messages can be written on the back. The PuzzleGram comes in a transparent mailing envelope and requires 43 cents in postage. It is available at Gundy's on Deepdene Road in Roland Park and at most Kinko's copying centers in Maryland. Priced from $3.25 to $3.95.
