Stickers & Greetings from Paper Pony Co.

Crazy Cat Lady Stickers from Paper Pony Co.

Paper Pony Co. first caught my attention this past holiday season with their snort-laugh-inducing “Happy Meownukkah” card, and my love for their sharp stationery goodies was solidified as soon as I laid my eyes on their Crazy Cat Lady stickers and Bites the Dust engagement card. What can I say? I’m a sucker for cats and Queen.

If you’re a fellow feline fanatic, or if you just like clever, sharp, and snarky stationery, then Paper Pony’s greeting cards, stickers, and art prints are an absolute must see. Check out some of my faves below, and head on over to the Paper Pony Co. shop to see everything that they offer.
