While totally old fashioned and retro, I have a soft spot for all letterpress and stationary (gasp!). And I have totally fallen in love with the wittiness and humor of the cards from Dude and Chick Letterpress. The founders, self described as a dude and a chick from Minnesota, sell their cards at various boutiques nationwide and on etsy.
The cards are well drawn, cute, humorous, and unique. I love stocking up and having them around the house for the inevitable occasion or event that surprisingly pops up.
The three cards I recently bought.
I mean, COULD I GET A MORE PERFECT CARD FOR MY PAPA?
The fanny pack in action
BOTH my parents are guilty of this. I used to try to cover it up and hide from it, but I realized that my parents are both cooler, smarter, more talented, and more hip than me. Even with birkenstocks and socks. So be it. I lost.
Yes, this is my mom in a very fashionable outfit consisting of birkenstocks, green socks, and an apron with her name incorrectly spelled (it was a gift from some people she was helping who don’t speak English – or spell- well). But she is the most incredible grandmother, mother, chef, and master of everything. I swear she is fashionable, too.
Papa Proskurowski caught in action with the birkenstocks and socks (I swear these were not staged photos). But look what a loveable and loving Tata (grandfather) he is. Melts my heart.
Witty baby card.
More cards on etsy.
Fun, quirky, and original cards. Get them now and send to your friends — as there is nothing better than a snail mail hello. Hope you have a great week! (And check out my new banner – what do you think?)
