HUMOURCARDS


Really rather rude BRIGHT colours, simple typewriter text,


cartoon illustrations – oh! and a smattering of tongue-in-cheek naughtiness.


Say hello to Short Stories, a rather risqué


range from Really Good UK for those on the edge of boundaries!


This collection is not for the faint hearted but, be prepared to laugh out loud at these wisecracks, illustrated with the innocent drawings reminiscent of early 90s computing!


Tell you a story INTRODUCING the newest additions to


Purpose & Worth Etc’s True Stories range of everyday cards with a literary twist, and owner Daphne Diamant has put a few naughty words in there.


With new titles such as Bloody Well Done, Shit Happens, and Sorry You’re Feeling Shit, there are greetings for pretty well every life occasion that might arise – plus a few you might not have thought of! Blank inside, there are 18 designs, 105x148mm, and they come cello-bagged with a recycled brown Kraft envelope.

A funny little company


A BRAND-new card company specialising in design-led humour is the vision of Richard Tillotson, a designer and writer with over 15 years experience in the greetings industry. Twice a Henries award winner, Richard has worked for big industry names such as Tigerprint, Hallmark and Moonpig before deciding to go it alone and now creates all of Tillovison’s cards from a small studio in his West Yorkshire back garden. The funny little card company have just launched a selection of new humour ranges which vary from Plasticine models to illustration. Comic Sandra stars the industry’s only Plasticine stand-up comedian, delivering a variety of one liners while Dangledown Wood is a cute but cheeky range of plasticine woodland animals. Inspirational quote cards with a twist is the format for Just Help Yourself, and Send Her Victorians uses old-fashioned illustrations for a female send. Other humour ranges are set to follow, all in preparation for Tillovsion’s fi rst trade show at Harrogate Home and Gift.

Risqué twist on vintage cute


A WIDE range of witty and entertaining humour cards are on offer from Hallmark, sure to make loved ones smile, giggle and roar with laughter. The most recent innovation to join the established collections is Mucky Pup, a range created to add something different to the Hallmark humour portfolio and entertain audiences by combining cute and cuddly designs with cheeky captions. Mucky Pup fuses modern, mischievous humour with charming, vintage illustrations of pets, many painted by Florence E Valter, that were originally used for postcard ranges by Valentines of Dundee between the 1930s and 1950s.


Hallmark have since taken over the brand and inherited their beautiful image library which is as rich in history as it is great artwork. These 12 classic cards have a contemporary twist, the beautiful colour illustrations are as cute as they are risqué and make perfect humour cards for friends, retailing for £1.69.
