loving oscar wilde as i do, i really love this card. while he can come across as funny, and sometimes he strictly is, most of his quotes have such thought provoking meanings. thank you for this great card! :)

LOVED this seller. They shipped my order out a little later than they anticipated, so they gave me free shipping, without me even contacting them. Plus, the print looks amazing! I highly recommend!

About

A line created from love

Julia and Sara, the minds and hands behind Papersaurus Creative met way back in 2006. They dated, fell in love and got engaged. At their wedding in 2009 (in Connecticut, it wasn't legal in their home state of New York at the time) they were surrounded in what they like to call a "perfect bubble of happiness" - made up of family and friends from far-flung places.

After the reception, when they looked through the cards their friends and family had given them, they were impressed by the fact that there were no "straight" wedding cards with pronouns crossed out and changed (which they had kind of expected, since LGBT wedding cards are a bit hard to scrounge up), and there were no duplicate cards (which they had also kind of expected). What struck them though, was the amount of gender neutral cards they got. Now, while they don't think there's anything wrong with gender neutral cards, and they absolutely loved the fact that their loved ones went through all the trouble to find appropriate cards - a little kernel of thought got lodged in their brains. Gender is one of the most important parts of most any wedding - whether it's different genders or the same - chances are, the gender of who you love is a big part of why you love them.

So over the next couple of years, they voiced their thoughts to random friends and family - and their thoughts slowly began to morph into more concrete ideas. They kept getting told that they should start a line of cards specializing in LGBT life events that are still alarmingly ignored by major greeting card companies.

In November of 2011, they took the hint and started Papersaurus Creative. With Julia's brains and Sara's graphic design talents (and tech talents, because ... well... let's just say technology and Julia don't mix) they were off and running. Now they have a loyal, awesome fan base that is continuing to grow and they are working to cover even more areas of life that are under-represented. They have also branched out into inspirational (and often funny, because, well, they like funny things - especially each other) prints, t-shirts, buttons, magnets and mirrors.

They plan to continue creating original and unique cards for the LGBT community and its allies and always welcome feedback and new ideas. (Really, they just love getting mail on Etsy ... it gets lonely in the cold Rochester winters.)
