We've decided to do a new thing here at Hug and Kiss - we're going to have a "Card of the Week"! Each week we'll select a card, tell you a little bit about how it was made, then we'll mark it down to just $2.00! Sounds pretty great right? We think so, so let's get this shit started! Our very first "Card of the Week" is one of our "Friendship" cards (though it can be given for any number of occasions)...
I don't really remember how I came up with the idea for this card, but I do know it sat around for quite awhile before I finally decided to use it. Actually, it almost didn't make the cut, which is funny now seeing how it's definitely one of our top sellers! I remember debuting this card at the One of a Kind Show in Toronto several years ago. I was hesitant to put it out on display, but after selling out of one of my other cards I needed something to put in it's place. I chose this one and to my surprise (honestly, I was shocked!) it started selling right away! So who buys this card and what for? Well, as I'm sure you can guess it's primarily women that buy this one. One woman bought several to send out to her friends letting them know that her lady-parts were okay after a cancer scare and another lady bought a couple to hand out to her "suitors"... just to let them know how awesome her vagina is. I think this card mostly goes to women to give their partners on anniversaries and what-not. Either way, it sells like crazy and we're still surprised by it. So buy one (or several) and let the world know that your vagina is awesome!
Hey folks. So the holidays are over and now it's time to brace ourselves for the beginning of a new year. We love when a new year starts because we get to put up a new calendar and our calendars are fucking awesome! All our 2016 calendars sold out super fast, so if you're getting ready to hang your copy, consider yourself lucky. We had so many people asking us to make more, but we just couldn't do it. Next year we'll try to have enough for everyone!
We had a really great holiday season this year and at the risk of sounding super cheesy, we couldn't have done it without our wonderful customers - so thank you! Even if you're just coming to our website for a laugh, we thank you! Obviously it's better for us when you buy some of our shit (whether it's at one of our retailers, online or at a craft show), but we appreciate your love and support no matter how you give it. If you're a long time fan, then you might have noticed that we were missing from the craft show scene for awhile there... apologies for that. As it turns out getting pregnant, having a baby and raising it takes a lot of hard work and dedication. The good news is, that kid is old enough to raise herself now (a 2-year-old can be left alone, right?), so we're free to add a few shows to our schedule! We wrapped up 2015 with the Make It Show in Vancouver (and it was incredible) and we're going to start off 2016 with the One of a Kind Spring Show in Toronto (and we expect that one to be incredible too).
Now go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back... because if you're ready this then you must be awesome and for that, we thank you!
Hey Ontario! We have 10 free tickets for The One of a Kind Show to give away! If you've never been, you HAVE to check it out. Not only will we be there with our hilarious greeting cards, magnets, etc, but over 450 other amazing artisans will be too. (It's seriously awesome). If you HAVE been before, then you already know how awesome it is and you must be dying to know how to score one of the 10 free tickets I'm talking about...
Well, easy! Just follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (links are at the bottom of this page) and tag us in a post. On March 7th, we'll choose the winners at random. The show is on the Easter long weekend, so unless you're the Easter bunny you must have at least one day off between the 23rd and 27th.
Halloween hasn't even happened, but we're in total Christmas-mode over here. Have been for months, really! If you're thinking about buying some Christmas cards, we're happy to help! Now is a good time too, because we have everything in stock! You can always buy from us right here, or check out our awesome list of retailers here or come see us at one of our events! This year we're only doing shows in Vancouver and Toronto, so sorry to you folks in Edmonton (and elsewhere).
