It all began when Queenie received her first Valentine in kindergarten. This sparked her love of snail mail and passion for paper goods. Although the company was founded in 2008, it wasn’t until 2014 that Queenie left her 9-5 to focus on the company full time. One day when she was rocking her baby to sleep, she realized her calling went back to when she received that heart-shaped Valentine. queenie’s cards made its debut at the 2014 National Stationery Show and Queenie has been busy creating punny cartoons for you ever since! She lives with her husband, their little girl, two loud cats and one rambunctious golden retriever in Toronto.
Just in time for the holidays, these colorful and festive pins are perfect for any collector. I am eagerly awaiting my birthday soot!
These are so cute! Great for backpacks, totes, jackets and vest. I love the patch trend and adding something bright and punny is always a must.
I love mailing out cards for thanks yous, birthdays and of course the winter holiday’s. I do tend to look for something different and Queenie’s cards definitely do just that! She has more than just holiday cards, she carries card for all occasions. Be sure to check out the full selection at the link above.
October is breast cancer awareness month and we made an exclusive PINK “let’s avocuddle” pin to spread awareness for both women AND men to reduce being at risk and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure, as well as to support those affected. Proceeds of every sale of this limited edition pin will be donated to Breast Cancer Research. Thank you for supporting the community toward a future without this disease.
These are so cute! After seeing Queenie’s ridiculously adorable photo with Daredevil’s Charlie Cox I knew these would make the list! The high quality pillow is available with or without the pillow insert. A great gift for any occasion.
