Announcement    Hope everyone is staying safe and sane! Right now is a great time to send cards and support small businesses! Every order I receive right now helps to keep this little business afloat. Every order means the world to me. Thank you for all of your support!

I’m sure you are aware that USPS is experiencing major overload while dealing with COVID and cuts. Thank you for understanding that Rachel and I get your packages out as fast as we can and drop them off in the big overflowing bins at the post office. They sometimes arrive the next day and sometimes move slowly and get delayed. I would give anything to make them all arrive the next day!!! Alas, there is nothing I can do after that nightly drop off. Thank you for your patience and understanding!! They will arrive!

Please follow @LaFamiliaGreen on Instagram for weekly specials and updates!

Free shipping for orders over $35!

And just a $3.00 flat shipping fee for orders under $35. First class domestic mail only. If you need your order by a specific date, let me know. It might be a good idea to upgrade to Priority Mail.

We donate a portion of our sales to a pet rescue or charity. Currently, all proceeds from the sales of digital downloads (for yard signs & garden flags) will be donated to JUSTice Cream. A WOC-led Chicago-based nondairy nonprofit (mutual aid) ice cream for and by the people to fund liberation, build critical consciousness and decolonize veganism.

La Familia Green is a woman-run, eco-friendly company.

All packages ship from Chicago via USPS first class mail in a padded or rigid mailer. PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS!!!! LFG is not responsible for packages after they are dropped off at the post office. Please let me know if you do not want your card shipped in a plastic sleeve.

Because all cards start out as drawing or collage, single cards can't be customized. But we do offer customization for larger quantities!

Wholesale inquiries are welcome.

All La Familia Green products begin in my Chicago studio as an original drawing, print, or collage. Cards and prints are printed by Catprint in Rochester, NY. Buttons and magnets are produced by Busy Beaver in Chicago, IL.

Thanks for stopping by!

Dogs and cards.

I grew up among the dusty tumbleweeds of Lubbock, Texas. And after moving to the Midwest in high school, I completed a BFA in painting and printmaking at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Graduation forced the lesson of how to live and work as an artist—that meant retail by day, artist by night. Attempting to integrate retail skills with artistic training and a love of multiples led to the birth of La Familia Green in 2005. I am a fourth generation small business owner. I love the immediacy and intimacy of cards. You buy a card, write a note and send it out into the world. I never know how many people will experience - hold, use, enjoy - my work. I also love that I can easily and quickly express my interests through this medium. As new card ideas come to me, I jot them down in notes app. And all illustrations are done by hand, by me.
Running and rescue pets are my passions. I donate 10% a month back to local charities. I am also proud to be vegan - so keep in mind that all of those corndogs and nachos in my work are plant based! ;)
My studio is located in the Greenleaf Art Center on the far north side of Chicago. My dogs Zuzu and Stickers greet visitors at the door. --Mollie
