About

Doodling + Letterpress = Getting Out for Recess

For years I drew.

I drew in school -- both when I was asked to and maybe sometimes when I wasn't.
I drew at home. And I drew for work -- being an art director in an ad agency, it came in handy. (So did having a healthy sense of humour.)

With markers, pencils, paintbrushes and crayons, I drew and drew from the trenches of real life and thus, carolyndraws was born.

Then one Christmas, I got an antique letterpress. It took some elbow grease, lots of patience (some swear words) and some really good teachers, but not long afterward, I woke that little press up from its decades long slumber for a real workout.

Every day I mix truckloads of real-life inspiration with a pinch of snark, a handful of illustrations and lots of hand-lettering to create greeting cards that people love to receive and give. And when I'm done, I round those off with handmade Super Magnets, the coolest Temporary Tattoos and calendars.

Get into the Shop. Check it out.
Send. More. Mail. (It's good for the soul.)
