Press Craft Printers, our printer of choice for notecards, is a third-generation family-owned business located in our hometown of Pittsburgh. They print everything from business cards to booklets to wedding invitations. They digitally print our notecards on card stock so thick and white that our images practically jump from the page.
Calamityware is a tiny, five-person, one-dog company headquartered in Pittsburgh. We love bringing the darkly whimsical view of our founder and chief monster-maker, Don Moyer, to life. Our products are high quality, meticulously manufactured items that make wonderful gifts for you and other weird-adjacent people in your life. Our goal is to make you smile.
These note cards are exactly that. But to use the words of someone other than Don, Lynnette, Brandy, and Jack (really, they had nothing to do with this review), this is how I feel about all of the Calamityware products, of which I own three. They perfectly reflect the complete uncertainty of the world in which we live with style, grace, and humor. They are also reminiscent of the Willow Ware china patterns I grew up with as a child. And, remember, things could always be worse. Even when you think they couldn't.
I have several "Things Could Be Worse" mugs, the teapot, creamer, sugar, a couple of travel mugs, beast bowls, etc. I love this design. I'm equally pleased with the notecards. Delightful design. Nice stock. What's not to love?
Am I the only one who has friends who attract small disasters in their life? This is the perfect card for someone whose car leaked oil all over her garage after a dealership 'fixed' it; a daughter and her husband who were given 2 months notice to move out of their rental after living there for 7 years; you get the idea. The perfect card for all personal trials and tribulations.
