That courier typeface makes me want to cream my jeans.
Better than Comic Sans.
Better than Papyrus?
THANK YOU! What is with Papyrus?! I make invitations (sometimes) and people eat papyrus up! I don’t get it…
I’d still take Papyrus over Comic Sans.
Comic Sans and Papyrus need to have a fight to the death, that would be the only way to accurately decide which is “better” of the two.
Comic Sans and Papyrus need to have a fight to the desth, yes. Winner gets summarily beheaded.
See, I kinda like Papyrus, or did until everyfuckingbody used it for everyfuckingthing…
littlewidget, I like(d) Papyrus, too. So much so that years ago when I had my business logo designed, I okayed the use of Papyrus for the name. Now, I am just ashamed to use it because I know people hate it so much.
I’m sorry to say I did the same for my business… thanks to Vista Print, papyrus is slowly eeking it’s way out the door.
I used to work in a library. Just browse the religious section: Papyrus EVERYTHING. I even saw a children’s bible book, and the title font with Papyrus… colored in HOT PINK!!!
Yeah. I’m a graphic designer for my day job, and you would not catch me using that font for ANYTHING. X-P
My reasons for hating papyrus are due to how it does NOT translate well to embroidery… you get a product that looks like it was badly created instead of intentional. And yet folks keep using it in their logos… Those notches are NOT your friend.
Death before Comic Sans.
As I’ve read elsewhere… Comic Sans is the herpes of fonts.
Cake or death?
Chiller. I will never EVER be okay with the use of the “Chiller” font.

What’s the problem with comic sans?
Shit, it didn’t work. Ignore me.
Well, we’re out of cake! We only had three bits and we didn’t expect such a rush…
I’ll take the chicken, please.
Comic Sans responds: http://www.mcsweeneys.net/articles/im-comic-sans-asshole
She should have used the “Twilight” font if she really wanted to money.
I like the use of “money” as a verb.
What, so my choice is, ‘or death’?
Well pretty much anything beats Comic Sans.
I’m sorry, but that’s NOT courier font. It’s obviously “Urban Hammer Key Rough Fragment Carbon Chunk 1942.”
Ahem, I believe you mean “Urban Hammer Key Rough Fragment Carbon Chunk 1943″. No one uses the 1942 version anymore. Not even ironically.
I just sent this to my friend Abby, who loves crafting. I’m sure she’ll buy like a thousand of them.
Bitch gonna be writin’ her shit all straight and shit!
Meh, I’m more of a Times New Roman girl myself.
Garamond all the way!
Garamond 3 Italic here.
Adelaide, o Adelaide, you’re round and square, you’re always there, o Adelaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaide!
Technic Lite and University Roman. *love*
Partial to Baker Signet myself and Avenir for client work a lot of the time (jr. level designer)
MY EYES! THEY BURN!
unless someone just came in your eye, we don’t want to hear about it
…and even then, we still might probably don’t to hear about it.
Speak for yourself, dude.
Soooo, Helloheath…DID someone come in your eye? We’re all friends here.
If overpriced stationery causes you that kind of distress, I recommend leaving this site now and never coming back. You will stroke out fatally within the next few posts.
made my day.
They really have the Abigail market sewed up, but can I get it in other names?
I’ll be naming my secondborn Abigail, then when she’s 18 she can get this stuff and it’ll be VINTAGE, if it’s not already…
They have correctly anticipated an Abigail boom. Shit’s gonna make them rich, as long as the Dollar Tree down the street stays open!
NO MOTHERFUCKER JUST ABIGAIL
The “authenticity process” actually coats the cards with an impermeable varnish. You can’t actually write on them. IDIOTS.
Fuck Abigail and her fucking special-ass paper.
Can’t I just fuck Abigail on the barnwood and be done with it?
haters gonna hate
I think it looks a bit stiff to be used on ones ass. (Unless you like that kind of thing)
Cut him some slack, Jack! Chump don’ want no abigail, chump don’t GET da’ abigail!
Abigail’s momma din’t raise no dummy.
I dug Abigail’s rap.
Abigail’s not here man.
Neither is Dave.
I’m 6′-1″, male and hairy as an Indian rug, but fuggit…I’m changing my name legally to ABIGAIL in that FONT.
Well, since Abigail is a bit of ‘vintage’ name, they probably have only other ‘vintage’ names.
Now available in:
Myrtle, Getrude & Dorris
Could I get it with some family names? That’s vintage right? Valda and Vina please.
I’ll take Veda, Vaydon, and Odelene please.
My mom’s name is Doris…do you think she’d notice the extra “r,” or do I need to custom order?
Sorry, no custom orders. If the name is not deemed vintage enough it isn’t going on the card and there is nothing more un-vintage than Doris with one r. You should convince her to change her name to Dorris so she can be vintage like us.
How about Hortense? I discovered my old english teacher’s name from delivering a note for her to the office and it was on her stationary. So Hortense MUST be on the list since I’ve seen it on other old timey staionary
Sorry, MarchHare; one does not simply make a Hortense. Unless you try french-kissing her during your “session”.
How about Bertha. Would love some Bertha action!
But if we’re going to cover the market, we need some for boys as well. See what you can do about getting some with Edward, Jacob and Horatio on them (and no shortening it to ‘Eddie’)!
We need Muriel, right Helen?
I’d like to order some with the name VAGINA COCKHARD
Just choked on my ice cream, thanks for that!!
A friend of mine had “Dear Fuckface” notepaper. I was SO jealous.
that’s pronounced Vageena Coke-har of course
Of course! Just like how “Shithead” is pronounced “shith-AID”.
I’m gonna steal from Josh and request “Beardneck McFuckface”
ELASTIC SNAPHOLE OF THE LOVE BEAR
Some of my roleplaying friends were in a game once where every single player named their character some permutation of Cheese Bread. I remember Edam Baguette, Roquefort Focaccia and Stilton Granary.
The GM of the game did not notice.
And can you change the size of the spell?
Did the just choose the first name in the baby book when deciding what name to use?
Haters; I had to wait 23 years of my life to get my name on something”personalized”, and another 2 to get my nickname, (which I like better)!
All of the other Abigail’s on Etsy probably banded together to “favorite” this item until it was creamy enough to catch an Etsy Admin’s attention. LONG LIVE THE ABIGAILS!
So what is the nickname for WateryTart?
The Lady of the Lake, of course! You know…Monty Python and the Holy Grail:
(Dennis to King Arthur) “Oh, but you can’t expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.”
Help! Help! I’m being oppressed! Come and see the violence inherent in the system!
Supreme executive power comes from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony!
Oh, bite me – find me shit with “Deanna” on it, then we’ll talk.
Hell, nowadays – I can’t find my sons’ names on personalized shit – and they’re Joseph and Alexander. I blame it on all the fucking special snowflake names…
I’ll bet you can find 12 spellings of Jayden, though.
How about how there are fifty different ways to spell Caitlyn. My sister has never had anything with her name on it!
Aiden, Jayden, Kaitlyn, Hayden, Hayleigh, Brayden, Kaylee, Caiden. Phew! Imagine the poor elementary school teacher who has to do THAT roll call 5 days a week. Hopefully there are some Mackenzies, Sophias or Briannas to break the monotony. Well, not really, because those names always come in pairs!
But hey, at least there’s stuff for Kaiden, Kayden, Khaydhen AND Caiydyen, right??
My daughter’s name is Daelynn, which I thought unique until I was yelling at her to stop hiding in clothes racks in Target 5 years ago and some mom came up to me all excited and was like “Wow, that’s my son’s name!” ………. the fuck? Still makes me cringe. This year we have to deal with Daelynn, Daylen, Kaitlin, Kaylin, and Jayden in the same place. :s
Apparently I never spoke to any soon-to-be-moms when I was one. At least her personality is big enough to stand out. >.>
Try finding Randi, it doesn’t exist. Let’s hear it for the girls with boys names?
It’s only been fairly recently that I’ve been able to find personalised stuff with my name on it.
What’s my extremely unusual and complicated weirdo name? Anna.
No, the first name is the book is actually Abba
Nah, the first name in the book is AAAAA1 Auto Repair.
Don’t special characters come before letters? I think The Artist Formerly Known As Prince would be atop that list.
Don’t they know hipsters want the brown penmanship paper?
With the dotted lines so you can differentiate between capitals and lowercase, because making all your letters the same size is so f’n mainstream.
I give the fuck up.
I con-fucking-cede defeat.
My piddly little Esty shop will never have anything as hip and cool as an index card!
Gonna go close down my store and weep in defeat like the pathetic loser I am.
Kind of off topic, but I visited your store and you are really fucking talented.
SHHH!!!! Don’t tell anyone! I have to be a fat jealous loser who can’t craft good to be on Regretsy! Everyone NOT on Regretsy knows that!
(Thank you so much!)
No you don’t! You have to be a fat jealous loser who appreciates a good laugh, and has real skills. We only make fun and snark at those who suck!!
For real. And she’s my neighbor.
I’d feel fucking hip with your pear painting. But then I’m just another talentless fat pathetic loser like you and since I sell nothing personalized OR photographed on bloody fucking barnwood my life is over.
Yeah. Your monster bags are a mess! Which is why I may have to buy one. So that no one else is subjected to the horrors!
She’s amazingly talented. And you forgot “jealous.” We’re fat, jealous losers. I’m jealous of this : http://www.etsy.com/listing/75210438/painting-no-7-the-red-wall-giclee-print and I may have to shell out the $15 for it.
I really dig the pear, too. And shut the front door over the Red Fish wristlet and the Marie Antoinette bag, CrossedPromise! As a fellow non-talented, pathetic loser, I tip my proverbial hat to the both of you.
If I win the MegaMillions tonight, I’m buying all your fruit and veggie art for my dream kitchen in the house I plan to buy (haven’t yet decided if I take the husband with me)…
please please please don’t close your shop down.. it’s wonderful art, compared to this dreck ;D
Hell, I am a glorified junk dealer and I can’t even get this kind of props. I have notebook paper all over the house. If only I had known. Lets go cry at the bar together.
Do you have anything in a strawberry?
Well, not everyone has Courier 10 installed on their computer, and a colour printer, you know. NOT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD COULD MAKE THIS IF THEY CHOSE TO.
Oh man, I have a typewriter. You know what that means, right? I could FUCKING TYPE ABIGAIL on an index card.
Back the hell up, Basil! You forgot STEAMPUNK. If you use a typewriter, it’s also Steampunk. Instant Etsy cred, and a shot at the front page.
You could take one of the keys and bend it out of place a little bit so the letters don’t all line up–you would be rolling in gravy, my friend.
Not even a color printer. There are ruled index cards, but of course, there’s no fancy “Abigail” on them.
$20 for 10 cards? you are fucking shitting me.
I know, right? SUCH a bargain!
well, she did have to put each card into her typewriter, and type a seven-letter name correctly each time. That’s hard work.
It is on etsy, apparently…
and when you do write your damned recipes down you better damned well not make one penmanship error or you just tossed 2 bucks in the crapper that you coulda spent on the dollar menu at Burger King. But you know the penmanship will be good because all those fucking Abigails have great penmanship. I hate them so much. Stuck up ^&%$# *&^&%$ !#@^^%$#@!
And April makes use of one of my favorite memes. I am pleased.
I. hate. you. Etsy. SO MUCH.
This post brought a smile to my otherwise kind of downer of a day — so, Thank You, Helen! I am laughing and hoping not to piss myself while thinking about notebook paper.
IF IT’S NOT COLLEGE-RULED THEN FUCK NO!
hahaha, I all could think of is (said with a Keanu voice) College rules dude
smh… this makes the front page?
That’s the straw that blew my mind.
Okay, someone is lame/deluded/corrupt enough to try and flog this shit. I can accept that as an aspect of our imperfect world. But front page? When there is so much epic stuff on Etsy (hidden ‘mongst the resellers and cupcakes)?
Shoot me now.
Apparently this person is cornering the market on products for those too inept to use a printer.
You think they’d make a GOATSE header on there?
Or could I convince them that my name is Whimsicle Fuckery? Oh. Shit. I think I just blew my own goddamn mind.
Sure you can get this personalized the way you like, sliptheflitch.
Your real name is Whimsi C. LeFuckery, right? Easy-peasy.
I know what I want for Christmas!!!!
I was kind of hoping to convince them to personalize mine as Jesus H. Christ…
Just tell them your parents were hippies. Or nostalgic beatniks.
Okay, we need a set of those cards in the Regretsy Store…maybe the folks who had the Hobo Wedding could send out their thank you notes on Whimsical Fuckery notecards.
You supply that part yourself. CRAF TING.
If I had unlimited money for fucking around with people for no good reason, I would order these with increasingly weird things until they refused to fill them. I wonder what a good progression would be so see how far someone is willing to go. Goatse would have to be a few stages in.
Have you seen Jimmy Carr’s act, The Most Offensive Joke in the World in which he slowly ramps up the jokes to see how far he gets before the audience turns on him? Epic. And he gets a lot further inching up than he would dropping a bomb from the get go.
I am sure as long as you paid, they would craft them.
My neighbor, Abigail Paper-Mate, always has the coolest stationary. These cards are sure to look marvelous next to her personalized ballpoint pen collection — I don’t know where she finds this stuff!
I’m totally going to change my name to Sanford Prismacolor so I can steal my classmates’ art supplies and then claim they are RIGHTFULLY MINE.
Sanford Prismacolor – love it. Great band name too.
At only $2 per index card, this is a steal!
Theft seems an apt description.
I wonder if she’d type my name on $2 bills…double bonus.
If you need me, I’ll be in the corner weeping quietly.
As will I. I normally don’t get too butthurt over this crap, as it’s mostly hilarious, but once in awhile I get pissed…. I make jewelry that can sometimes take up to a month or more to make, but these shitheads make the front page.
K. Back to the snark.
I am with you on this one too.
With George Harrison’s guitar.
Screw quietly… I think this calls for heart wrenching sobs that cause the neighbors to call the cops.
The name actually looks photoshopped to me.
The price, the front page, the item … my mind has boggled and now I have a headache.
The good news is that you could use these PERSONALIZED paper-cut makers to let out some blood. You’ll completely forget you even have a headache!
Useful for blood-letting, huh? I guess that would make it vintage, too. No wonder it made the front page, it can be used multi-purpose!
For me, it’s Big Chief Tablet or GTFO!!
Pitch this to Levenger! They’ll eat that shit up! They’ll also display it with a fucking $200 fountain pen.
And offer a customized leather portfolio to carry your valuable, one-of-a-kind personalized cards.
Ten of a kind, technically.
Holy crap, someone still has an IBM Selectric typewriter and is typing these out? that’s funny stuff. I think I just had a font orgasm..
I should list sheets from my spiral notebooks from college, since the doodles I drew in the margins will be quite profitable.
Only if you put the name Abigail somewhere on it.
Pfft, while we all know Etsy is all about avoiding originality like the plague hat only affects hipsters, it could sell even better with an extra flair: Use “Abby” instead.
I’m… I’m genuinely speechless!
Come to my Etsy shop. I’m selling traditional vintage pencils for just $35. But WAIT! There is more! It’s laying on a wood table. http://www.etsy/urafuckingidiot.
Are they number two, pencils?
Number 2 is a little…mainstream.
I’m a number 6 pencil person myself.
You and me, both. I even went to Etsy and typed in “urafuckingidiot” in Search.
I prefer the 2 1/2 myself.
I…actually clicked that link to go see what I imagined would be a snarky fake listing or something.
Damn, I was hoping both of these shops actually existed.
Amazon, I replied to this…but it ended up above. I don’t know why, either.
Now now, don’t be ridiculous! I’m far too stupid to make a link. Why, just this morning I nearly bought vintage chalk tied with twine for $15.
I was so hopeful that I clicked that link!
April, I love you so much I would be gay for you.
Get in line sister.
My life is complete now.
LINED PAPER WOULD BE SO USEFUL OMG. WHERE DO I GET?
Holy shit, ya’ll, it’s PAPER designed to look like PAPER. And it made the FRONT PAGE OF ETSY, so you know it is quality.
I bet this shit ends up in FOUND magazine. What’s next? Printed grocery lists?
View the full listing here
Cardboard should be added to that list.
“This list also has plenty of blank lines for your write in needs. Makes shopping fun and easy!”
Or you could just write it all on a blank sheet.
Now, if someone came up with some crafty item that let my list travel on its own and meet me at the store when I forget it at home, I’d buy a dozen.
First, used envelopes are the green way to go. Second, I think I need to modify their “Vegetarian Vegan Grocery List.”
My blanks would have “steak, chicken, and cheese.” And of course “cole slaw” and “kale.”
I would totally buy a list that put the groceries away for me afterwards. Anything less, and it is ‘No Sale’.
that’s ridiculous. First, things like “mochi” and “tempeh” are listed under “dairy.” Second, I’m vegan and I think I know the typical foods – no one eats kasha (kasha?!) – but vegans fucking love hummus and chickpeas (don’t ask, I don’t know).
also… I think people know how to write their own grocery lists. Just sayin’.
Hummus is mostly chickpeas, but it is so good! It’s like crack. I can’t just have a little, and I keep buying more!
Geez. Don’t people use their cell phones for this stuff anymore?
There’s an App for that now — got to admit I use it on my phone because I never go anywhere without it so I always have my list with me.
But the envelopes match. And it comes in a clear box. You can even get shimmery white.
or order one of her thank you cards or stationary. You could make that shit on a like a dozen other sites and have it sent to your house cheaper but it wouldn’t be handmade bitches! Also it wouldn’t come in a clear box. Totally worth it. Jealous much!
also its a fun way to personalized your correspondence
Know what else is a fun way to personalize your correspondence? Sign your name at the bottom!
“Personalized.” Oh hell, I totally missed that.
Damn it! All this time I’ve been putting my name at the BOTTOM of my stationery to personalize it. This is so much more innovative!
Frack, sorry tiny giraffe. I should have looked one comment below. :/
I think I can forgive you this one time. Besides, I’m working on a new idea now. I’m going to make stationery with the name all over the paper. That way I can write a letter with me all over it.
“Dear Abigail Grandma,
Camp is Abigail really fun. Yesterday we went hiking Abigail up Mount Fuckery. It Abigail was really tiring Abigail, but the view from the Abigail top was breathAbigailtaking.”
and Grandma would be like, “who the fuck’s Abigail?”.
You owe me a new keyboard for that. LMAO.
HK is a genius. I’m going to start marketing my Etsy store like that. “You want something to write with? Look at this motherfucking pen! This ain’t yo granddaddy’s quill, it’s a goddamn ballpoint is what it is! That shit automatically spreads its own fucking ink! And it’s made of some motherfucking kickass wood, not that shitty plastic fuck from Walmart! You get a motherfucking pen that has “ball” AND “wood” in the description for only twenty goddamn dollars! You ain’t gonna see that fucking shit down at the corner store! Fuck yeah!”
I wish I could take credit for this. “Extreme Advertising” is an old meme.
And a great one, at that. YOU CAN ROCK FORWARD, YOU CAN ROCK THE FUCK BACKWARD.
Is that what one of those advertising awards was for?
Yes. Yes, any gathering of communications professionals is a circle jerk second only to Etsy’s main office.
Old meme or not, you’re still a genius and that’s only a 43% ass-kissing.
I really really really like your coffee scoop…next time I have that much moola, I’ll be visiting you!
My sister, abigail pincus is shitting herself, will love these.
Oh, Front Page, you torment me so. $8 for a page from an outdated encyclopedia?
I don’t know– I think this deserves some sort of fuckery award. Like the Regretsy “You’ve Got Balls” award, cause man- they have some serious cajones to be charging that kind of money for this shit. And probably laughing all the way to the bank after it gets featured on the front page.
So congratulations sir and/or madam- You’ve Got Balls
Makes me wonder why I bothered going to school to know how to make good looking shit when I have gotten away with using ugly generic Windows typefaces and fucking index cards. It’s almost as bad as the mom down the street telling everyone she’s a professional photographer because she knows how to click the shutter.
Just choked on my coffee and my 4 year old could not comprehend why mommy was having breathing issues over lined paper.
is anyone else thinking of the scene in American Psycho where they’re all drooling over new business cards?
Oh god, it has a watermark.
Upcycled and handwritten.
Taken on faux wood/ wood finish, because distressed and natural is so last week. Twenty bucks, please.
The distressed version for the hobo in you.
Jen, you are a crafting genius.
But it only comes in jen…right?
Of course; it’s OOAK. Better be a damn special letter.
Hey! My name is Jen. Well, Jennifer, but sometimes I let people call me Jen. I MUST HAVE THIS!
How much do you want? I will give you my firstborn!
Tell me you can stamp a name in placental fluids and we are READY TO DO BIZNESS.
Back the fuck up. Does this come in Helvetica?
I love targeted advertizing. Woot, barnwood decks!
Yes, next you’ll be wanting to build a deck in the backyard so you can place your personalized paper on it to admire it by candle light.
Maybe even erect a statue and do weekly sacrifices…
I went too far there, didn’t I?
I swear to fucking god April, if you get any fucking funnier I am not only going to have to a) pee my jeans, but also b) build you some kind of monument to awesome. Crease and desist, woman! XD
I have to look at something else some days to keep from erupting in laughter at the office. Don’t think some people would approve/understand.
I have to blank this entry because I’m writing about this already and YOU ARE SPOILING THINGS – HK
Great minds, laurlaur…
wow, that’s almost as tasteless as the colonial Africa wedding.
Ooh–I knew just the seller to do your invitations
Oops, she’s not in business anymore. Must have used up all the pages.
OK, what happened? This was in response to Amazon’s comment about her themed wedding and now her post is gone…was it because of the stated theme? If that’s the case, April, you can delete mine as well.
I bet she’s already been commissioned for the hobo-themed wedding, and is busy making invites out of pages torn from “Grapes of Wrath.”
You are posting the future! Impressive!
You’re fucking awesome!
sadly, I don’t think the lines helped poor Abigail write nice and strait…
Where do you think you are? There’s no calling out here! I’m going to shut down this thread. Thanks!
Aww. That’s no fun
The icing on my cupcake isn’t happy anymore.
She can’t spell stationEry correctly either. It’s from inahling all the excess glue and varnish on her overpriced etsy goods.
oh come now guy and gals lets give this person a chance..maybe she can make up for it if she tapes a HUGE ass mustache and a few paper clips to the sides..or better yet how about if she attaches the mustache WITH the paperclips, then she can make room for some Bejeweled Safety Pins along the bottom. NOW that is my idea of some Bad ass stationary!!
I read that as “huge ass-mustache” rather than “huge-ass mustache” and I nearly choked to death on a cheese nip as a result of the image conjured. Well played, well played indeed.
It would be cool if they would fill in the rest of my correspondence for me. Since we’re being lazy about writing our own names, why not let the etsy stranger fill in the rest of the blanks? Type up my recipes and notes to my mom and stuff.
My mom won’t know who abigail is, but she just throws my letters away unread anyway.
THAT would be worth $2/card.
Yeah! They could be really generic, like those blank greeting cards with the birds on them like my grandma always gives me.
Congratulations and/or condolences on your recent event. It is with great pleasure/sadness (circle one) that I think of you during this _______ time.
Or, they could be painfully specific for those times when you expect the unexpected:
Dear Jessica Tandy,
Thanks for the hot oral. I can’t believe how many chimps we were able to fit in your shower stall.
Write your own name out and quit being a lazy twat.
Signed, Etsy Stranger.
Shit is so fontastic I just had a forgasm all over my index card stockpile…I’M RUINED!!!
If by ruined you mean you just upcycled your index card stockpile!
Now that’s the attitude for Etsy Success!! I’ve been doing it all wrong this whole time! It’s not ‘ruined’, it’s ‘uniquely beautiful.’ It’s not ‘garbage’, it’s ‘upcycled treasure.’
I’m going to make a fucking fortune.
Okay, so has anyone bought this paper yet? Ya know it’s gonna happen.
So, I have a pile of index cards that my mom used for her notes for a historical novel, mostly typed, mostly bibliographical information with perhaps a quote or two; some hand-written.
I was using them for scrap paper, but do you think I could sell them for a couple of bucks each?
Are they yellowed with age? Is there any feces or semen on them?
If so, you are sitting on a goldmine.
there are no feces or semen on them…YET.
That’s the spirit!
So if I just gratuitously and promiscuously used that “This made it to the front page of Etsy” graphic on my listings, without the item actually making it to the front page, do you think anyone would notice or care?
I suspect the admins would fall on you like a holy terror for having the temerity to mock the utopia that is Etsy.
It would be an interesting experiment, but I can’t counsel anyone who values their shop to try it.
what if I made a “shop badge” that said “This did not make it to the front page of Etsy” but it looked exactly like the other one?
mad editing skillz.
I think everyone is underestimating the importance of index cards in today’s world. I mean yes, we live in an increasingly paperless society that limits the usefulness of the index card…and OK, I suppose personalised index cards wouldn’t help you index anything except maybe an extensive collection of photographs of yourself that you don’t wish to differentiate in any way…
But we needn’t be so literal- they can be used for so many other things! Maybe not something as pedestrian as ‘study notes’, ‘shopping lists’ or anything vaguely useful. BUT these index cards really come into their own when you need to write a ‘note to self’ WITHOUT the hassle of writing your name twice (and we all know what that’s like, am I right?).
Buy more personalised index cards.
Love and whimsy,
So who’s the dumb one now?
Okay, I just laughed so hard at the “jack off” line that I woke up the baby. Damn you, Helen.
what else is there to say?
i picture this post being read by the guy from epic meal time
“BACON STRIPS AND BACON STRIPS AND BACON STRIPS AND INDEX CARDS”
No no, this IS handmade. The cards are upcycled. It used to be an index card with ‘gail’ written on it. The added A & b make this a steal!
Guys, guys, guys. Calm down. My students are going to practice their cursive penmanship for you and we will sell our index cards for $10. That’s HALF off! And, it’s a real steal since it is in cursive and all. So much more professional.
Fresh Out of Gold Stars
So, this isn’t even a FULL sheet of paper? It’s just large note card sized? And 10 cards with 10 envelopes for $20? That’s a dollar per card and envelope. You can get a 100 pack of large note cards for $1 at the dollar store. I think I’d rather pay $0.01 per note card and just write my name at the bottom of the note card, you know … where it actually belongs.
i think april is a little pissy today. maybe?
I think this made her pissy.
“Criticizing Comic Sans” should be added to the list of Stuff White People Like.
I can’t tell if April needs less caffeine or more alcohol.
That’s why they make Black Russians and Irish Coffee.
Do they even regulate that “This item made it to the front page of etsy” things? What would stop me from just opening a shop and putting that on all my listings?
Dear Etsy seller,
I would like a set of your notecards. Please personalize with my name , Richard Smoker. If at all possible, could you please work in my nickname “Big Dick”.
Thanks for your attention to this matter.
Well there goes my handmade place cards idea. White 3x5s and comic sans font just does not compare to this wizardry.
I’m poor, so I buy my designer knockoff stationary at the dollar store. I have to use my ink-jet printer to put my name on the stationary, or on some days, just my hand and a pen. I’m such a wannabe.
Ah April, it’s posts like this that make me want to track you down, stalk you and become your best friend. That’s how stalking always ends, right? In bestfriendmenship. <—I just made up that word…for you…because I love you.
I require my Abigail stationery to use the actual Abigail font, for obviously obvious reasons!
Hey…I want a post card, and Abigail is MY NAME! Do I get a discount because you’ve already made up those cards?
This post is my favorite on Regretsy so far.
It was Abigail’s turn to pick the Etsy Front Page.
Haha, I know who codeslave is – he used to (probably still does) work on a mildly-amusing “comedy” site whose most popular feature was a completely unmoderated message board where people were insanely cruel to one another 24/7. All in the name of fun, of course. Talk about hypocrisy.
wtf, this is the wrong post! What happened? Where am I?
I’m late to the party buuuutttt.
You had me at AMAZEBALLS!!!!
Gosh, now I know why my stuff have never made the front page – I need to photograph against distressed wood!!!! Duh!
I like me some Trebuchet MS…
sigh, this is why i love you. it was that last line about distressed wood. embarrassed myself in front of coworker. nice.
This could be the best invention EVER! Love it!
Now, we just need the same thing on envelopes!

Helen, great find once again!
What’s the chance that we could see utensils with our names on them in the future? I love that idea since my kids are always hiding the forks and knives in the house. Kinda scary about the knives, recently we had to switch over to just butter knives and get rid of the steak knives with our 6 yr old boy who is “experimenting”…LOL
Kids, gotta love them!
