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 setbacks.

Things Could Be Worse Notecards come in a box of 12 with white envelopes.

Identical design. Blank inside.

Printed on white card stock.

Sufficiently silly and superb

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 wanted something fun and qurkey for notecards. They fit the bill perfectly


Looks amazing came in quick and still looks weirder than the picture(good thing)

I love you designs. They always make me smile. These cards will be my "go to" ca4d for just about every occasion. The materials are great and so is the design!

Don M.

I was not familiar with your exceedlingly funny products until a friend sent me a notecard last year at the holidays. This year I ordered a pack to send out myself. Naturally, I sent one back to the friend who initiated me.
We're hoping for a full set of the china when things allow.

Really cute notecards

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?

Calamity comfort for friends

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.
