Hip Products: Able and Game greeting cards

When Anna from Able and Game introduced herself to me on Twitter I almost died and went to cool card heaven. Anna Blandford and Gareth Meney's ultra-cool, ultra-dry greeting cards feature quirky illustrated characters and dead-pan witticisms.

You might know Melbourne-based Anna from her other label Anna Laura (of the cool badge and accessories line - watch out for an upcoming profile). When Anna and Gareth started creating the kind of cards they wanted to give (truthful and poignant but without the mush), they were in such high demand that they decided to launch their own card line. Lucky for us!

Grab a fun card for Mother's Day (and pocket a few for upcoming birthdays too). Tell me you can't resist 80's guy (isn't that the French hipster from Son of Rambo?). And who wouldn't want to be an Amazing Race partner?

You can find Able and Game products on Etsy and check out new designs on the blog. You'll also find designs on Anna Laura's Flickr photostream. Move over The Far Side!
