I wasn't initially sure how to order cards from HoboThoreau in bulk but the seller answered my questions promptly. And after placing the order for 20 cards, they arrived quickly and with no damage. The cards are gorgeous and I love the quirky designs.

About

There's something special about sending a card; writing a handwritten message, stuffing it in an envelope, popping on postage, and then waiting a couple days for it to get there. It's not instantaneous. And that's what's nice, especially in this present-day world of instant communication. When you get that birthday card exactly on your birthday, it's that feeling of appreciation because you know that person took the time to figure out when to put it in the mail to reach you with perfect timing. When you can't hold a friend or family member during a hard time, it's the feeling of reassurance when you send a sympathy card to remind them of your open arms and ears. When you get that ridiculously hilarious card from your old friend, it's the feeling of happiness as you remember the inside joke it's referencing. When you write a letter to a lover, it's the nervous gut-wrenching feeling as the intimate words you've gotten the momentary courage to write get dropped into that locked postbox, to be opened by even more anxious hands. Communication is about messages, but greeting cards are about feelings.

And that's where I come in. I'm here to make greeting cards to help you say the things that can't be said. Mostly with puns. So who do you need to send some love and a laugh to?
