Best Greeting Cards. Ever.

April 7, 2011

The One of a Kind Show is coming back to Toronto this spring and I could not be more excited.

I wholeheartedly plan to stuff my face at the ever present smorgasbord of free, gourmet samples. Of course, that is not the only reason I attend the winter and/or spring show every year. I always expect to discover some new artisans and there are several repeat exhibitors whom I watch for every year. Hug and Kiss Designs is the one designer that I showed up for the first time at the November 2011 show and I am really hoping they come back for spring.

When I discovered this most excellent and creative greeting card designer, I spent about half an hour obnoxiously cackling at every card I picked up. I did not feel at all self conscious because I was not alone. Okay, I may have stayed longer than most patrons (I did not leave until I had read every single card) but there were plenty of people who laughed just as hard as I did.  If I ever wrote greetings for cards, these are exactly the quips I hope would to spill forth from the recesses of my mind. I looked up the site online and was pleased to find the following disclaimer:

WARNING THIS SITE CONTAINS LANGUAGE
THAT SOME PEOPLE
| WITH NO SENSE OF HUMOUR |
MAY FIND OFFENSIVE.

Obviously a great start, right? And it only gets better from there. Here are some of the cards I bought back in November, cards which you can still purchase on the website:

Front:
Let’s Go Celebrate

Inside:
I’ll get the hookers.
You get the blow.

Front:
Your smile makes me smile.

Inside:
Because you look like a fucking goof

hug & Kiss Designs 3

Front:
Hey friend.

Inside:
Did you lose my number?
Jerk.

Front:.
Have you heard the news?

Inside:
My vagina is awesome.

And the next one is my personal favourite, the one that I am not sure I can give away.The one following the koala is for my brother, who insists on throwing himself a birthday party EVERY year (granted he is only 13 but I digress).

Front:
You know who loves birthday parties?

Inside:
Little sissies.

I found this next one on their website and, if they indeed return to the One of a Kind this spring, I  fully intend to purchase it there:

Front:
I don’t know what i’d do without you.

Inside:
I’d probably start fucking your mom.

There are so many more awesome cards on their site. They also have magnets, clothing and paintings. I hope that bring a good collection to their booth this year. Last year they had only cards and magnets so I am not sure if the clothing and art are new endeavours. I would LOVE a shirt that announces how awesome my vagina is. Or maybe I will buy it for my mom….

Visit the Hug and Kiss Designs website address. While you’re their, why not buy lots of awesomeness? Supporting Canadian artists is so easy.
