The Dark Side of Valentine’s Day

My Creepy Valentine

What says “I love you” more than a Valentine’s Day card which features a feral cat that’s about to attach itself to your neck like a vampire who hasn’t had a drop of blood since flannel shirts were in style? My Creepy Valentine is the most disturbing, perverse and, in some cases, completely offensive collection of “vintage creepy” Valentine’s Day cards that the web has to offer.

Hey, maybe the cat’s just upset because he has a “Valentine Greetings” heart tied to his tail?

P22 Ephemera Pack

P22 Ephemera Pack

I’m so stoked to see that P22, one of my favorite type foundries, is offering an ephemera pack! Each pack contains over 40 different P22 items, from stickers to packaging (printed letterpress, offset, silkscreen, and more), for only $10! They also offer a Bigger Pack (80 items) and a Mega Pack (120 items) for $20 and $30, respectively. If you have a habit of saving catalogs, greeting/post/business cards, and other inspirational print collateral that you receive in the mail, then the P22 ephemera pack would be the perfect addition to your collection.

D.L. & Co. Stationery

I was already familiar with D.L & Co.’s insanely decadent scented candles — the scents, the packaging, the design, oh my — but they design stationery, as well. In keeping with their m.o., their stationery is also insanely decadent…and slightly macabre. Absolutely fabulous, and a visit to the D.L. & Co. website is a must!
