Call me fussy but most cards bore me. They’re either too samey, too cheesy, too unoriginal, too cringy, not funny, trying too hard to be funny, too cliched, too girly, too old-fashioned, too dull, too this and that… I like my cards with a dose of humour, whimsy, uniqueness and nostalgia. Ones that think outside the box, like these designed and created by Archivist Gallery, a small independent company based in England. I love them so much I’ve decided to dedicate a whole post to their selection of cards. Here are a few to get you in the mood:


Thank-you cards

Congratulations cards

Phew. Well, I think that covers it. And they did not pay me to write this post. I simply love what they do and enjoy supporting small local businesses.
