Hey folks! I’ve been around, I’ve just been busy (#life). One of the things I was busy doing, was getting some Banners ready for their big debut! I’ve had these guys designed for awhile, but it took awhile to get them into production. I have a couple made and ready for you to take home… but I’m still figuring out the packaging and the pricing so I’m considering these my “prototypes” (though the actual product will likely stay exactly the same)! If you’d like to check them out, there all right here under Banners.
Today is Fried Chicken Day AND it's World Kissing Day. Sure, these weird little holidays might be silly, but they are a fun excuse to pick up a bucket of fried chicken for dinner and make-out with your lover. If you'd like to know when the best of the wacky holidays are happening, you can follow us on social media (instagram, facebook, twitter) or you can plan to purchase one of our wall calendars when they come out in the fall. (This particular comic strip came from July of our 2018 calendar). We also sell Postcards to mark a few of our favourite weird holidays. Like Ice Cream Day, which is coming up real soon!
And now that you're done thinking about how you must purchase one of our calendars and a bunch of our Postcards, you can start to think ahead to all the weddings that are happening this summer and all the pregnant ladies that you'll need to buy baby cards and gifts for. We got you covered with New Baby and Wedding Cards. Plus, of course, Birthday, Graduation and New Home cards.
Every so often I take time away from my creasing and cutting duties and I sit at my computer to make new cards! It's not always my favourite thing to do, but sometimes if the mood is right I can crank out several new cards in a single day! (Other times it can take DAYS just to get one card done right). I had a few good days a couple of weeks ago and I made several new cards that I've now posted under the NEW ARRIVALS section. Check them out then buy them all!
Most notably is a Get Well card that I came up with after hearing that a woman I know had just been diagnosed with a life changing illness. Seeing as this type of thing happens to men and women across the world on a daily basis, I thought that this might be a great opportunity for me to try and help… even just a little. So while it doesn't feel like much, I've decided to donate $1.00 from every sale of this card to cancer research! We'll go public with our earnings once in awhile and donate a lump sum to the Canadian Cancer Society once a year.
Now just because the money will be going to cancer research, doesn't mean the card has to be given to someone dealing with cancer. This card can be given to someone battling any illness or injury, or even a bad break up, or rough patch in life (job loss, death in family, etc). We just chose cancer because we fucking hate it (who doesn't?) and it affects so many people! So be fucking awesome and buy this card NOW!
Yesterday something major happened to our neighbours in the US of A (which I'm sure everyone in the world has heard by now). The Supreme Court ruled that banning gay marriage is illegal! It's crazy that it took until 2015 for this to happen, but at least it happened!
