Announcement    COVID 19 UPDATE
The last two years 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 now offer International Shipping for some of our products. All orders will be going via Australia Post International Standard Parcel Post. This method is expensive but allows us to track the parcels. We expect this service to have some delays due to the nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and want to warn customers before ordering that delays are to be expected. We have not listed every country, if you are wanting an item and we don't have your country listed please message us.

HEALTH AND SAFETY
We are a team of two and are making sure we follow Government guidelines on keeping safe while processing orders.

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. Australia Post have been experiencing delays and we are finding some orders are arriving later than expected.
If you are concerned, please message us. Not all of our domestic orders are tracked as they are sent as large letters. If you are wanting tracking on domestic orders we recommend upgrading to express post.

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/#/

ABOUT US
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.

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

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.

About ableandgame

Sales 33,826
On Etsy since 2009

We make fun greeting cards that celebrate everyday life.

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.

  • Anna and Gareth

    Owner

    We have a studio in Brunswick in Melbourne, Australia and we make greeting cards. We are inspired by everyday life, including all the mundane things we love to overlook. When we put them on a greeting card they suddenly become something special.

  • Anna Blandford

    Designer, Photographer

    Hi, I'm Anna and I grew up on a sheep farm in country Victoria and have been making greeting cards since I was young. I loved it so much I told her Auntie, age 10, that my dream job was to become a greeting card designer.

  • Gareth Meney

    General Manager

    Hi I'm Gareth and I'm originally from Scotland. I came to Australia on a one year working visa in the early 2000s and met Anna a few months later. I do the day to day running of Able And Game and have a background in Computer Science.
