Mean Cards

Sometimes Hallmark just doesn't have the card that expressed exactly how you're feeling (case in point, the Prizon Greeting cards).

When Julianna Holowka lost her job, her apartment and her studio all in the span of a week, she was devastated. With her last $13.25, she bought art supplies to draw her gloom away. She gave them to friends (who loved the humor) and started selling them as uh, shall we say, anti-Hallmark greeting cards, and thus "Mean Cards" was born.

If dark humor is your cup of tea, definitely check out her work and blog: Link - via The Zeray Gazette

My favourites are from the Uncooked range:

it's your birthday
and quite honestly,
you've never looked
better. well, obviously
you looked better
a few years ago but
what can you do.

The trouble I have with cards is that they're always so specific. Good quality blank cards in which I can write my own message generally cost more than something from Hallmark that says exactly what I don't want to. Like their "Recent operation" range, which contains this gem...

"Glad you've had a hysterectomy.
You lately looked a nervous wreck to me.
Bet you're glad the plumbing's missing
and now you're up to more than kissing"
