Announcement    COVID 19 UPDATE
The last few months have been a tricky time in small business. We hope everyone is coping okay, facing an uncertain future. We wanted to update you with how we are operating right now.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS
We are no longer offering delivery outside of Australia, due to the fact that we cannot guarentee delivery times and some delivery services have been suspended.

HEALTH AND SAFETY
We are a team of two and are making sure we follow Government guidelines on keeping safe while processing orders. We are making sure we keep contact with other people to a minimum.

DELIVERY TIMES
We are in the office processing orders for at least three days per week to make sure orders are going out as fast as possible. We have found there have been delays in delivery, with some orders arriving a week or two later than normal.


Custom Illustrations:
We are no longer doing custom illustrations. Running a business and a family with young children made it hard to juggle everything so sadly we made the decision to stop the custom illustrations. If you search Etsy there are lots of really talented people offering this service.

Able and Game offers cards and stationery that are quirky and cute rather than cliched and predictable. The cards feature hand drawn designs of weird and wonderful characters that are offbeat and stand out from the crowd.

We wholesale our products, so if you're interested in stocking them please email us for more information.

We aim to ship orders out 3-5 days a week and try to process them as quickly as possible. Generally if you order during the week before 3pm it will either be sent that day, or the following day. Orders made on the weekend are generally sent out the following Monday or Tuesday.

HOW LONG WILL MY ORDER TAKE?
Orders are shipped from Brunswick, VIC 3056, Australia. You can use this page to get an estimate of delivery time https://auspost.com.au/parcels-mail/calculate-postage-delivery-times/#/

Australia Post generally say around 3-6 business days for most of Australia, however it would be wise to generally add 3+ business days onto anything Australia Post says. If you need it for an occasion, please order well in advance (4 weeks) or consider Express Post (in the Express Shipping section of the shop, International orders contact us first for a price estimate.)

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS
We are in Melbourne, Australia so please allow up to 28 business days for international orders to arrive.

We make cards

Able And Game is a stationery label that aims to create greeting cards that stand out from the crowd. Launching in February 2009 with a unique range of Valentine’s Day cards, Able and Game used humour and real sentiment to convey messages that are quirky, poignant and personal. The Able and Game collection is always expanding, with cards to celebrate birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day and generally just to brighten people's days.

The cards feature hand drawn designs with references to pop culture and trends that people easily identify with. The statements made on the cards have people nodding and laughing in agreement and the illustrations are drawn by hand, giving the cards an innocent quality that harks back to the day when you used to draw cards yourself.

The creative team behind Able and Game are husband and wife Gareth Meney and Anna Blandford; Anna is the illustrator and Gareth works on the technical side.
