new on the greetings cards scene
We've been busy, busy hunting down the prettiest, the glitteriest, the coolest and meanest cards out there right now. Here’s a round-up of what's new in The Hambledon greetings card department.
IMOGEN OWEN: Imogen Owen started her stationery brand in 2013, and has become well known for her beautiful modern calligraphy style as well as her fun and sweary sentiments. The girl can do no wrong in our eyes, and here she is, back with this range of beauts - ranging from the super pretty to strong swears to a cool 70s-style red and pink combo complete with funky illustrated envelopes – all printed in her studio in rural Leicestershire on her 1940's Autovic letterpress. We can’t get enough.

THE SOCIAL TYPE: Based in sunny Los Angeles, friends Allison and Jessica founded their super fun stationery company 'The Social Type' in 2009. Girls after our own heart, their love of anything shiny and glittery knows no bounds; literally everything they do incorporates some sort of glitter or holographic foil element. Combine this with beautiful quality die cuts and fun designs, and we were sold, sold, sold.

MEAN MAIL: We are usually lovers not haters here but right now we’re loving Mean Mail. Launched earlier this year by Brit Art Director, Vicky Simmons, Mean Mail is for those you love and love to hate, inspired by Oscar Wilde’s wise words, “True friends stab you in the front.” Beautiful cards, laugh-out-loud funny, handmade in London (in the corner of Vicky’s Mum’s lounge) on a hot foil press, it's not hard to see why we're smitten.

SCOUT EDITIONS: Scout Editions are a small London-based brother and sister collective. Keen travellers, their shared interest in fashion, interiors, storytelling and folklore inspires their designs, many of which are limited editions, so catch them while you can. Printed on an energy efficient risograph (whereby artwork is burnt onto a master and then fed through a print drum layer by layer), each print varies slightly. Super sweet and unique, we couldn’t resist these.
