After last year’s 2010 National Stationery Show, I posted some of the funny, snarky, or just plain sarcastic cards I saw. It’s a trend that hasn’t gone away, although this year’s cards seemed a bit softer. Perhaps being nice is back in vogue again….
Here are some entries from the 2011 show that made me chuckle:
Very Punny collection by Made to Keep. I love these plays on words, especially “I am Hear for You.”
Thurber Quote Birthday Greeting Card ($4.75) by Crane & Co.. My college friends and I all turn 40 next year. I may have to buy a bunch of these. We sure do wish we could go back to age 28 with the knowledge we have now!
Stationery & accessories by Anne Taintor. How awesome are these? In case you can’t read the first one, it says, “Hopes and dreams would only distract me from making these awesome casseroles.”
Graduation card (about $4.50) by Flywheel Press. Know someone who dragged their feet through school?
Stay tuned for more coverage of the 2011 National Stationery Show!
