I could count on one hand how many greeting cards I’ve actually liked. For me, they normally go one of two ways: cringe or all cheese! But with many boutique Aussie brands popping up, it seems finally there are some beautiful alternatives on offer. So, have an anniversary, birthday or just a day where you want to say: ‘I’ve been thinking of you’ coming up? If yes, check out the list below.
PennedBlack: Providing unique and stylish paper goods from a boutique studio in Brisbane, their signature look is hand-drawn prints and foiled typography. Simple but oh so sweet.
Olivia York: With a passion for all things Australia, Melbourne-based illustrator Olivia York creates whimsical watercolours worthy of framing. On a side note, she also specialises in pet portraits… just saying!
Rachel Kennedy Designs: With a mission to create Australian made, environmentally friendly paper goods with a positive message, Rachel Kennedy Designs is reminiscent of your child’s kindergarten painting… the one you’d actually want to keep!
Blacklist: Blacklist have come a long way from their humble beginnings as a design studio. Now stocked worldwide, their greeting cards feature the brand’s distinct hand lettering and graphic prints.
In the Daylight: Celebrating the beauty of common objects, the Brisbane-based brand’s range of greeting cards feature original hand illustrated designs, inspired by the simplicity and uniqueness of everyday items.
Blushing Confetti: Cheeky and stylish or as Blushing Confetti say “quirky and mostly inappropriate,” their cards are assembled by hand and made with only the highest quality materials.
For Me By Dee: One for the animal lovers, the Melbourne brand’s playful and vibrant characters are full of fun and perfect for children and adults alike. With over 35 characters in their range, there’s an animal for everyone.
