Cut the Bullsh*t. Send a Greeting Card.


29th Aug, 2012


When it comes to birthdays and other celebratory occasions, for most of us it’s pretty standard to give a greeting card. Even if it’s totally f**king lame and it’s a toss up between a stupid f**king cat with pink hair on the front or a drawing of a goddamn flower with some gold glittery sh*t all over it. For some reason, we’ll still give a card (probably the cat with pink hair).

Thankfully IndieGogo, that wonderful place on the internet spewing out all sorts of cool and creative stuff, is once again here to answer our prayers.

A new project ingeniously called Calligraphuc, has taken to the funding platform to present its exquisitely profane letterpress cards. Stylish and totally bullsh*t-free, Callighraphuc cards allows you to speak to your loved ones through cards just as you would it real life … complete with swear words!



For example, the card above is word for eloquent word, the exact reaction I had when my best friend recently announced she was engaged.
Why beat around the push with pink kittens when there are stylish card designs out there to help convey your true sentiments from the heart?


Calligraphuc combines two wonderful things: beautiful hand-written lettering and obscene language. With just seven days left on the IndieGogo clock, the project only needs $825 to reach its $5000 funding target, and these babies will go into production and be available to buy online. Check out this hilarious video by Brisbane, Australia-based graphic designer Linus Boman explaining a little more about the project.
