Best Cards - 2004
If you love to give and send cards but hate the Hallmarked crap at your local Walgreens, check out Crafty Cards, where you can buy handmade, letterpress-printed (i.e., simple, beautiful) cards for just about any occasion. In addition to funny, pretty cards for birthdays, holidays, or any old day, you can find copies of the entertaining house zine, Ker-bloom!, and order custom invites for weddings, showers, or other parties. (The Fifth Street location is a studio; make an appointment to see samples, or buy online or at various local stores.) And even though everything at Crafty Cards is made by hand, none of it is expensive: A card will set you back $4, a zine just $2.
