Some of Don's favorite patterns and drawings digitally printed on white card stock. Each package includes twelve identical 5-1/2" X 4-1/4" folded notecards.  Blank inside so you can write your own message. Twelve matching white envelopes included. Comes in a clear gift box.

Available designs are:

Batty
Bats get mixed reviews. In China they signal enormous good luck. In the West, bats are linked with darkness, malevolence, witchcraft, vampires, evil, and death. The pattern on these notecards is from Don Moyer’s sketchbook, where there is ample evidence the artist has bats in his belfry. This pattern also appears on a long scarf, square scarf, necktie and pocket square.

Sea Monster Jamboree
Humans have a tendency to fill up the unknown with monsters. A famous example is the sea monsters that enliven the wild places on early Renaissance maps. These notecards, loaded with cryptozoological marvels, are an over-the-top example based on Don Moyer’s limited-edition, letterpress print. This pattern is also available on the world's most beguiling shower curtain.

Strawberry Thieves
Talented Victorian designer, William Morris, created hundreds of beautiful patterns but, sadly, all these designs were missing one vital ingredient—dinosaurs. We’ve fixed that problem. Here is Don Moyer’s parody of one of Bill’s patterns from 1851—now with all the dinosaurs you could ever want. This pattern also appears on a long scarf, square scarf, necktie and pocket square.

Things Could Be Worse
We lose our keys. We lose our job. We lose our superpowers. But things could probably be worse. We could be plagued by pterodactyls, pursued by giant robots, or pestered by zombie poodles. These notecards, inspired by Don Moyer’s drawings of a discombobulated, blue-willow paradise, are a reminder to smile despite set backs. This pattern can also be found on a variety of products you can find here.

Variety Pack
A sampling of our four most-loved designs. Three of each of the following cards: Things Could Be Worse, Strawberry Thieves, Batty, and Sea Monster Jamboree.

My suggestion

Just a suggestion....I would buy many of these to give as gifts if it were an assortment of four or six (preferably six) different designs in a box. As it is I can buy them separately and mix them myself, but others may not feel so inclined. Needless to say, the designs are awesome.

Perhaps?

I'm all about choice and diversity, so I would LOVE to see a box of all the designs as a purchase option. Two of each card in a box of 14 cards, perhaps.

(Same idea for your bandanas . . . jus' sayin'. . . )

Love these cards

So one of my knitting buddies kept sharing links to a company called “Calamityware.” As one usually does, I ignored the links for a good long time. Then I took a closer look at the pictures. Hello? Flying bat monkeys? Flying UFO, ,Pterodactyl, pirate ships and so forth. Holy moly, color me hooked!!

My first set of note cards were the “Things Could Be Worse.” OMG, so freakin’ funny. This one has a giant robot, UFOs, a pirate ship and a few other surprising items to show that indeed, things could be worse. At least I still have my knitting super power.

It doesn’t hurt that the card stock is really nice, too.

Here’s the only problem with Calamityware. Just like potato chips or chocolate, you can’t stop at just one. I am now the happy owner of 5 sets of notecards.

Please join me on your own Calamityware journey to the fun side.

Batty Bandannas

Please consider creating BATTY BANDANNAS so I can use them as napkins for the Passover set I am putting together for my grandchildren. Next purchase: FLY shallow bowls for matzo ball soup!
Thank you ever so.

Totally agree with Frank R

Mixed boxes of cards would be great.
Also , more designs, maybe a little less busy.

The perfect touch

I think with the current events people are going to return to the practice of sending note cards to family/special friends. That's my $0.02 anyway. I already have mugs, cups and tea set that I enjoy. With the note cards I can share these great designs with a special friend of mine who has the same sense of humor. I know she appreciates these illustrations as much as I do!

High quality cards you would be proud to send describing your own calamities

I have purchased some of his previous sets. High quality paper that takes our inked woes down for posterity. I will definitely buy the Things Could Be Worse ones. These remind me of my all-time favorite greeting cards from a Far Side cartoon of a crisis clinic on fire being carried away by raging water towards a looming cliff. Sometimes our lives are like that and we need an appropriate Calamity card to express it.

Enjoy sending

I ordered two sets of cards which I have enjoyed sending to people, as they provide a little humor during these times.

Hard to Choose

I got 'Things Could be Worse' but will definitely be buying more of all the designs for thank you's, or just to write and catch up. The print quality and paper weight are great and the detail is spot on!

Perfect people who live in states with craptastic weather

I've loved you since I pledged for my first set of mugs to complement my blue willow and blue danube wedding china. Since I really don't need anymore tableware I've moved on to notecards! Beautiful and weighty, I bought the "Things Could Be Worse" design: worse than a blzzard? or a polar vortex cold spell? or another year of above average snowfall? I can gripe about it here.
Actually, in my case, these should be called "Things Are Looking Up"... Thanks for a great and beautiful set of cards! Highly recommend!
