Ordering + Shipping Info


DECEMBER 16, 2014 | Well folks, that's a wrap on Christmas orders! If you're here to order Christmas cards, you're too late! We're still shipping orders, but there's no chance orders will arrive in time for the holidays. Sorry!

NOVEMBER 10, 2014 | Oh snap, it's November. We've been so caught up with Christmas cards and calendars and cats and cocaine (just kidding mom), that we haven't had the time to update our website. Actually, truth be told a new website is in production! So really, it just feels like a waste of time to update this site when the new one is getting ready to make its debut and blow minds.

So if you haven't already, take advantage of our laziness and buy our Christmas cards while they're still on sale! (The sale was supposed to end in early October).

SEPTEMBER 26, 2014 | Dudes! Our 2015 wall calendars are almost done being designed, which means they're almost ready to go in production! We have them available for a special pre-order price if you wanna call dibs on one...or two...or three... but hopefully more. Get 'em here on the calendar page.

And buy your Christmas cards while you're at it!

SEPTEMBER 23, 2014 | It only took us 20 days, but we finally got that Christmas sale up! Oooh yeah!!! (Read like the Kool-Aid guy) It includes Christmas cards, Hanukkah cards, and Christmas box sets. Fuck yes. Get the cards for only $2.95 each (instead of $4.95 each) or box-sets for $17.70 each (instead of $24.95 each) now until October 6, 2014.

Oh, and we have Christmas magnets up too, but those little fuckers aren't on sale.

For those of you in Ontario, you might want to take advantage of this sale, because we regret to inform you that we will NOT be taking part in the One of a Kind Show in Toronto this Christmas. So you won't be getting our sweet 5 cards for $20 show dealio.

For those of you in the Vancouver area, if you happen to miss the sale (or would just rather buy your cards from us in person [because we're so sexy]) you'll be able to find us at Portobello West on November 29th and 30th.

SEPTEMBER 3, 2014 | Holy crap, it's September. I think that means it's almost time for a Christmas card sale! Stay tuned!

JULY 30, 2014 | When I visit a website that hasn't been updated in awhile I can't help but think that they've gone out of business or are just too fat and lazy to keep people in the loop. Yet here we are 2 months without a single word of news. Geez. Well, we certainly haven't gone out of business and we may have our lazy and bloated moments, but the real reason for our lack of updates is that we're too fucking busy! We've been spending our days creasing, cutting, and folding cards for several of our wonderful retailers! And when we're not in production mode, we're off to the post office to ship orders or Starbucks for a caffeine fix. Plus our office baby (bookstores have "store cats", we have an office baby) has learned how to army crawl, so a great deal of time is spent chasing her around. But regardless, we suck and we should update you folks more often.

With that being said, there's really no big news to report. Isn't that exciting!

MAY 22, 2014 | For those of you in and around Vancouver - you should definitely visit us at Portobello West this weekend. Here's a FREE admission pass... even though it's only $2 to get in! We need to know that you love us, so you better stop by or we'll have to pack up and move to Toronto - where we KNOW we're appreciated.

A quick reminder that Father's Day is June 15th, so you best be gettin' your Father's Day card orders in soon! Ordering before June 6th would be ideal. It usually takes us a few days to process the order and depending on how far it has to travel (we're based out of BC), it will take Canada Post another few days to get it to you. So if you're mailing it to your dad, give yourself plenty of time and order now! NOW WE SAY!!! You might also want to check out our Men's T-shirts. Dads wear shirts and dads like swearing and dads will appreciate that you didn't pay full price... yes, our shirts are on SALE!

This is a NEW one and will likely be going to my dad this year (sorry if to ruin the surprise dad)...


You've been such a good parent.

Not the best. Not great. Just good.

MAY 18, 2014 | Hey Vancouver - we're going to be taking part in Portobello West this coming weekend! Yahoo!!! We haven't done PW in four years and a show in Vancouver in 3 years (shame on us!), so you better come down and give us heck AND your hard-earned money. We deserve it... especially your money.

A little history on our history with Portobello West.... I (Nikki) officially started Hug and Kiss Designs in January of 2007 and in October of that same year decided to take a risk and try out a craft show. That show was Portobello West! I borrowed some shitty card racks, bought a plastic table cloth from the dollar store and voila, I had a terrible display. (Pictured below.) But people liked my cards enough to buy them and so I continued with craft shows...

I like to think my display improved along the way. Here's my table less than a year later.

Anyway, you folks in Vancouver definitely need to come and visit. It'll be worth it. The show is May 24th and 25th from 11am-5pm at The Creekside Community Rec Centre in False Creek. Admission is $2 at the door or you can find a free pass in the Georgia Straight.

APRIL 16, 2014 | Spring is here, though it seems some areas of Canada haven't got the memo (snow in April? No thanks.) For most of us, spring means RAIN and we have one surefire way for you to stay dry and be happy - yep, we have UMBRELLAS! We mentioned them a few weeks ago, but now that April showers have arrived, we figured we should tell you again! We partnered with our buddies over at Cheeky Umbrella (another super awesome company from BC) to create the worlds greatest umbrellas, but we only made a few! With only a dozen of each made, these 2 umbrellas are EXTREMELY LIMITED EDITION! And they aren't just cheap-ass umbrellas that will fold at the first sign of wind - they're tough little mofos. They're only $35 a piece and shipping is FREE so buy them before they're sold out!

And while you're umbrella shopping, you should pick up your Mother's Day cards... heck, mom's use umbrellas too right?! Mother's Day is on May 11th this year.

MARCH 26, 2014 | The new boss here at the Hug and Kiss headquarters is so demanding that she forced us to skip out on this years One of a Kind Spring Show in Toronto in order to attend to her personal needs (ie. change her diaper, feed her, bathe her, etc., etc.) It's a thankless job, but we'll make her pay with years worth of child-labour...once her hand-eye coordination is developed enough to cut cards.

So apologies to all you folks out in Ontario that were looking forward to stocking up on our products. Good news is you can pick them up right here from our site!

And in more exciting news, we actually found the time to design some NEW cards! Oh lala! Incldued are 4 new Birthday cards, 4 new New Baby cards, 2 new New Job cards and 3 parenthood cards (ie. cards that can be used for either Mother's Day or Father's Day... or a parent's birthday or something).

MARCH 11, 2014 | Rain, rain, rain. Do you live somewhere that has to deal with a lot of rain? We do (just outside of Vancouver, BC) and we've learned that you absolutely MUST have a great umbrella in order to properly cope. So lucky us - our buddies over at Cheeky Umbrella decided to make a special run of umbrellas with Hug and Kiss Designs images! Yahoo!!! The umbrellas are of top quality and only a few of each were made (making them extremely LIMITED EDITION!) So get 'em while you can for only $35/each. Click here for more images and information.

FEBUARY 26, 2014 | Hey, so this is Nikki - President & CEO of this wonderful little greeting card company known as Hug and Kiss Designs. For those of you that have been following us for awhile, you might already know that our little company is primarily a one women show. I do have one part-time employee year-round (hooray for Joel!) and seasonal help at Christmas, but for the most part all the work is done by me... and boy it makes me wish I had a clone! Last month Hug and Kiss turned 7-years-old and over the years I've absolutley LOVED being my own boss! I work when I want to work and don't when I don't want to. I can stay in my pajamas all day and take breaks whenever I'd like. I get to travel and meet my wonderful customers and I write my own paycheques! At least I did... back in November I gave birth to my first child and I realized I am no longer my own boss. My sweet little girl is in charge now. She may only be 3-months-old, but she tells me when I can work and when I can't. Damn baby. So for the next year or so you may not see us at our usual events - including The One of a Kind Spring Show in Toronto, which we regretably have to skip this year (again, damn baby!). But at least you can purchase our goodies online! Spend over $25 and shipping is free!

FEBUARY 4, 2014 | Shame on all of you for not sending us cards and gifts in celebration of our 7th birthday!!! We're honestly really upset that you forgot... though we'd be extra upset if we hadn't forgotten about our birthday ourselves. Geesh. Who forgets their own birthday!?! Fucking idiots.

Anyway, you surely won't forget about Valentine's Day! It's coming up on the 14th and of course we have Love and Valentine's Day cards for you! Get your orders in BEFORE this Friday for timely delivery (in Canada only). If you want to add a little something extra to your Valentine's Day card - why not add a magnet in with it? Nothing says "I love you" like a "Show me your tits." magnet.


JANUARY 2, 2014 | ITS SALE TIME!!! Within the next couple of weeks we're stuck doing our inventory... BOO!!! That means counting every card, every magnet, every shirt, every single damn thing we sell! Since it's easier to sell our products than it is to count them, we've decided to have a New Years SALE!!!



Happy fucking New Year everyone! We hope that 2013 was a wonderful year for all of you and that 2014 is the cats ass (that saying makes no sense to me-whats so great about a cats ass?!?) We had a pretty crazy year with me (president/ceo/super awesome business owner) going on and getting knocked up this spring and giving birth in late November! While adjusting to working with an infant around the office is tricky, we will do our best to provide you all with our super awesome and fantastic products!!!
