Tuesday Bassen’s sassy and smart-mouthed illustrations make every message you send your favorite people appealingly sweet—and just a little bit tart. Her illustrations have graced the pages of publications as varied as Lucky Peach and the New Yorker and her brightly hand-drawn and lettered cards add a light and quirky touch to your correspondence.
Bassen’s anthropomorphic rabbits, lions, and cats and charmingly strange still lifes take their style cues from playful vintage comics and tongue-in-cheek Americana. With cards for every moment or sentiment (or excuses to catch up), your words of thanks, congratulations, or encouragement are wittily well-matched by her cast of animal oddballs. Her punny pop illustrations of food and drink are an enticing opener to your own strokes of verbal genius, too. Whatever you choose, our online design tool lets you customize whatever message you send to just your style. With many designs available on folded paper cards, your note can make a beautiful mantelpiece accessory, too.
For birthdays, holidays, and other appointed days on the calendar, send a card with the same quirky wit. You can even schedule it in advance—so you don’t show up empty-handed on the day-of. Serve your Valentine a little piece of your heart with romantic cards decorated in anything-but-the-usual love bites of rare steak and suckling pig. If you’re more of an animal lover than an animal eater, send a Mother’s or Father’s Day card with an illustration befitting your own mama or papa bear. Tuesday Bassen’s signature rabbits make a command performance on her Easter cards, which marry her playful comic style with the soft shades of spring (and the candy, too). When the big winter holidays roll around, send out your cheer with illustrated gingerbread men, eggnog, and fruitcake that your guests will find just as tempting as the real thing—well, maybe not the fruitcake.
