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.)

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

We love our wholesalers! Please message us at carolyn@carolyndraws.com and tell us a bit about your shop. We will follow up and send you a catalogue.

Tracking numbers and upgraded shipping

All of our items (except large, bulky orders) are shipped via Canada Post First Class letter mail. CANADA POST DOES NOT OFFER TRACKING ON FIRST CLASS LETTER MAIL.

If you'd like your package tracked, please message us about purchasing a shipping upgrade BEFORE you place your order.

How long does shipping a card or pin to the US take?

Shipping cards + pins to the US can take 5-14 business days from the date your order is SHIPPED, but usually is faster. This does NOT include processing time before shipping but I do make every effort to ship promptly. Please make sure allow plenty of time for delivery of holiday items!

Why is there no tracking on my order to the US?

Canada Post doesn't offer tracking on their very economical First Class Lettermail service, which we use for the delivery of cards and pins. The cost to add that service is quite high and doesn't necessarily include speedier delivery, but if you'd like it, please contact us PRIOR TO ORDERING so that we can upgrade your shipping fee.

What's your favourite ice cream flavour?

I am more of a chips girl, actually. Love Ms Vickie's Lime and Black Pepper :)
