Like so many of their great cards, the colors, design, and especially the message will provide encouragement. We all need it! And a card given in person or mailed [it may take time; it’ll make it!] is a gift!

This makes me think of the late John Lewis, member of Congress fr GA, most of all a life-long mensch who “made good trouble”! Encourage someone who’s experiencing discrimination, fearful of speaking up for any reason, to do so.

It’s graduation season. It’s a time when many, coming out of layoffs resulting from COVID [pls get vaccinated] are looking for new places to work or ways to work differently. Think of the many reasons ppl need reassurance that being/becoming who they are is good. This is a perfect card.

Among my favorite cards, because it is a rainbow and because it reflects a message that matters. Pride month still so a great time. Then too we all need to show that we care.

There is always a time to send this card. There are more times when we know someone needs to know specifically. Not just that you think they know. Best to say it. And “real mail” v “e” is so much nicer.

A line created from love
Julia and Sara, the minds and hands behind Papersaurus Creative met way back in 2006. They dated, fell in love and got engaged. At their wedding in 2009 (in Connecticut, it wasn't legal in their home state of New York at the time) they were surrounded in what they like to call a "perfect bubble of happiness" - made up of family and friends from far-flung places.
After the reception, when they looked through the cards their friends and family had given them, they were impressed by the fact that there were no "straight" wedding cards with pronouns crossed out and changed (which they had kind of expected, since LGBT wedding cards are a bit hard to scrounge up), and there were no duplicate cards (which they had also kind of expected). What struck them though, was the amount of gender neutral cards they got. Now, while they don't think there's anything wrong with gender neutral cards, and they absolutely loved the fact that their loved ones went through all the trouble to find appropriate cards - a little kernel of thought got lodged in their brains. Gender is one of the most important parts of most any wedding - whether it's different genders or the same - chances are, the gender of who you love is a big part of why you love them.
So over the next couple of years, they voiced their thoughts to random friends and family - and their thoughts slowly began to morph into more concrete ideas. They kept getting told that they should start a line of cards specializing in LGBT life events that are still alarmingly ignored by major greeting card companies.
In November of 2011, they took the hint and started Papersaurus Creative. With Julia's brains and Sara's graphic design talents (and tech talents, because ... well... let's just say technology and Julia don't mix) they were off and running. Now they have a loyal, awesome fan base that is continuing to grow and they are working to cover even more areas of life that are under-represented. They have also branched out into inspirational (and often funny, because, well, they like funny things - especially each other) prints, t-shirts, buttons, magnets and mirrors.
They plan to continue creating original and unique cards for the LGBT community and its allies and always welcome feedback and new ideas. (Really, they just love getting mail on Etsy ... it gets lonely in the cold Rochester winters.)

Julia is working her way toward ordination with the United Church of Christ, so she is the inspiration for the inclusive religious cards and prints. She takes wicked joy in saying to Sara "I don't know how you're going to illustrate this ... but ..."
