Été Invincible founder, Naida Lynn, has always loved words and especially gifting greeting cards for special occasions. If you think of that person who spends way too much time trying to pick out the perfect card, that was her!
Fast forward to April 2016, and Naida found herself strapped for cash yet still desiring to express appreciation through greeting cards. Out of her dilemma arose the brilliant idea to create cards on her own, which would look exactly how she wanted and say exactly what she wanted them to say! Naida went on to hand-make a couple of cards for friends and family and each time, received praise for the quality and thoughtfulness of the cards.
One day when Naida’s father saw the card Naida made for her mother, he was so impressed that he strongly urged her to consider making cards in Haitian-Creole as a business because such a thing can’t be found in any local stores. Naida took the idea and ran with it, going on to officially launch Été Invincible in May 2016. Our company proudly provides quality cards that are sweet, funny, and celebrate Haitian-American Culture.
Été Invincible, (or É for short) derives its name from a famous quote by poet Albert Camus, which states, “Au milieu de l’hiver, j’apprenais enfin qu’il y avait en moi un été invincible.” This translates to say, “In the middle of winter, I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer.” The heart behind the concept is describing a hope that breaks through the darkness and overcomes all odds—just like the story of the Haitian people. Though we have been through so much—especially as of late—our strength, passion, and resilience continue to shed rays of hope for each coming generation.
Since launching, Naida has released a Mother’s Day collection, a Father’s Day collection, as well as a holiday collection–which again was received with open arms.
As of June 2nd, 2017, the Été Team is pleased to announce that our 2017 Father’s Day Collection is officially here!

“For father’s day, I bought my husband a beautiful card from Été Invincible and he absolutely loved it! I was very satisfied with the product quality. The card was very beautiful, creative and unique.”– Mich Thelemaque
“Love Ete Invincible! I was able to purchase my first ever Haitian Kreyol greeting cards this past Christmas and New Years, and it was such a blessing to be able to bless my parents with Holiday cards that reflected our culture – and what a joy it was to finally not have to translate lol. Ete Invincible is not only one of its kind, but the owner Naida is also intentional AND innovative 🙌🏾. Thanks for the birth of Ete Invincible and look forward to the many variety of cards to choose from .”- Darlene Noemie
