Card - New Normal

Description

Grief and loss are a long, often shitty process. After the initial shock, the rest of the world moves on, leaving a grieving person in a foggy kind of limbo. And if they’re experiencing ambiguous or unresolved loss—or dealing with chronic illness—the fog can be even denser. Let them know you get it, and you’re here for them. 

  • Blank card, A2 size (4.25 inches x 5.5 inches)
  • Heavyweight uncoated stock
  • Blank card with matching kraft envelope
  • Comes in card sleeve derived from plant-based PLA that is certified compostable


     

     

    After a cancer diagnosis, founder, Emily McDowell, learned that sometimes people drift away simply because they don’t know what to say. She also learned that there wasn’t a huge supply of greeting cards available that spoke authentically to complex or nontraditional life experiences. So in 2012 she started writing and illustrating her own cards, reflecting her real, complicated life—like Valentines for people who are kinda ambiguously dating, Mother’s Day cards for people who aren’t technically your mom, and cards for seriously ill people who might find “get well” messages awkward at best.

    At Em & Friends, they make cards and products for the relationships people really have and the lives we really lead: relationships and lives that are messy and beautiful, tricky and wonderful, and a whole bunch of everything else in between.
