If you are tired of the sugar-coated, polished and soulless messages of Hallmark cards these alternative greeting designs are going to enhance your life in a great way. Emily McDowell tells it like it is. Her cards are raw, honest, authentic and pretty damn awkward.
The cards below are made for a variety of occasions and express congratulations, thanks and appreciation in a playful hand-drawn typeface. The messages are really awkward, but embody within them a feeling that these cards actually mean what they say.

McDowell explains, “My work reflects our shared human experience, in all its different, messy forms, and I feel most satisfied when something I made helps somebody feel like someone else out there gets them.”
