Readers around the world turn to the New Yorker for its reporting, commentary, and photography—but they appreciate a laugh, too. Send your friends and family some of Eustace Tilley’s urbane wit with cards and invitations featuring the New Yorker’s iconic cartoons.
In a sentimental season, you could use a bit of martini-dry humor. New Yorker Christmas cards take a gimlet eye at the holidays, no matter what traditions you and your friends celebrate. If you’d prefer to mix drinks as effervescent as the wit on display, you’ll find holiday party invitations, too. There’s no need to limit your celebrations to December and January, though. Find invitations for dinner parties, conversation over cocktails, or any little evening of fun and games you have planned—each featuring a cartoon that anticipates your guests’ mirth. Plus, planning your party will be the very picture of convenience with our online RSVP tracking and guest messaging. Keep abreast of who’s attending, who’s declining, and who’s failed to even open your gracious invitation, and send a quick online message to any group or individual.
Even on days without a party, you can still send a card. Welcome your friend into the rarefied air of old age with a funny birthday card or celebrate an equally established partnership with an anniversary greeting. If there’s no appointed day on the calendar, you can still add a wry touch to any mood or moment. Wish a pal congratulations (sincerely or “tinged with irony,” to quote David Sipress), good luck, or something sweeter—but never saccharine. With the online design tool, you can add a personal message in fonts and colors of your choosing with a backdrop to match. Should you be writing the proverbial old lady from Dubuque, you can reach out to her in a medium she’s comfortable with. Many New Yorker designs are available printed, including a few folded options with room for a longhand note. Consider it your letter from the editor—she’ll be pleased she finally got a response.
