Mean Mail: Beautiful Cards, Brutal Words
Heads up, we have a new girl crush and she’s really mean, but we love her for it. Arriving on the greeting cards scene like a blast of super cool, somewhat icy fresh air, her name is Vicky Simmons. An Art Director by trade, Mean Mail is the side project she launched earlier this year, inspired by Oscar Wilde’s wise words,“True friends stab you in the front.”
No sweet nothings, heartfelt thanks or sentimental statements here, these are greetings cards for those you love and love to hate; straight-talking cards for every occasion and non-occasion; for calling out a friend, telling them how it is or having a laugh at their expense, safe in the knowledge it will be taken in good humour on the receiving end.
Keeping things real inside and out, the cards are handmade in London (in the corner of Vicky’s Mum’s lounge) on a hot foil press, and printed on FSC certified stock. The quality is top notch (both of her folks have a background in print and illustration), and Vicky's Instagram feed is also the business; beautiful squares of Mean Mail colour, brutal words and brilliant #meanmailloves (go check it out).Taking a leaf and cutting to the chase, there's nothing not to love here and we couldn't be happier to be brand new stockists. Time to say what you really think, people.
