About

Tired of cards that suck?

I was too.

Shopping for cards was the worst.

I had seen my mother go through it countless times: rush to the nearest purveyor of paper goods at the very last minute, rifle through millions of impersonal and mass-produced cards in search of one that fits, only to have the receiver's eyes gloss over once they tore open the envelope. Cards, for both the giver and the receiver, are almost always a chore. An obstacle in the way to the real prize.

I wanted to make cards that people were as excited to open as their gifts.

I've been making personal, pun-inspired cards for friends and family since I could hold a crayon.

All my cards are:

- Guaranteed to thrill both giver and receiver
- My own original artwork, thoughts and general silliness
- Made with a specific person in mind, so they feel intimate, as if made just for the person you’re intending it for
- Printed on sustainabley sourced, luxoriously thick card stock with a satin coating that makes drawings pop
- Blank inside and easy to personalize for any and all occasions
- Individually scored with a seamless fold


My aim is to create the best cards you'll ever send.

Most of all, I hope to make you laugh.

2. http://etsy.me/2jiAkAw --- because we all have a sushi-eating partner :)
3. http://etsy.me/2qMGZ9x --- it rhymes ;)
4. http://etsy.me/2rKXOPm --- the cheesier, the better!

Frequently asked questions
Can you mail this card on my behalf?

Yes! Normally, I ship the card to you and you would give it to the person of your choice. I can, however, mail it directly to the person of your choice. Please tell me at check out what you would like the inside of the card to say/how you would like it to be signed, and I will mail the card for you!

How come I can't order more than one of a design?

If you're having trouble purchasing more than one of a design, please message me. I don't always list my entire inventory.

How fast do these ship?

I usually get my orders out the day of purchase. Most domestic customers receive their cards 2-3 days after purchase.
