“The Be Mine card [designed and printed by Inkwell Press] struck a chord with me. Love and friendship are as much a theme of music as they are Valentine’s Day. Despite its impossible finger positions, this card is perfect for the musician in your life.” —Andrea Rahal, shop owner

“This card, as are most of my cards, was made to fill a request from people who can’t find that ‘perfect’ card at the local Hallmark store. I love it when people have that ‘aha’ moment when they find just the right card. Most of my cards feature bad puns that usually produce an out loud giggle.” Jodie Hansen, designer


127 Portland Street,
“I am going to pick this one from local print artists Double Dare. They are a really great twin sister team. I like cards that don't necessarily say Happy Valentine's Day, and I think that this one says it all It is bright, fun and who doesn't love cat cards?” —Charlotte Jewer, shop owner

“This card is illustrated and screen printed by Geordan Moore of The Quarrelsome Yeti. It’s perfect for your Haligonian honey with its light-hearted nautical theme. We would love to receive it because what's cooler than The Quarrelsome Yeti? Nothing, that's what.” —Rebecca Dimock, Duly Noted designer
