These cards may be generic, but they’re ridiculously adorable and add a little local flavour – quite literally – to your holiday cards. Brainchild of local illustrator Natalie Kwee, these cards, part of her Shiok Sonnets collection have quirky illustrations accompanied by little poems like “You are the chicken to my rice, life with you is just not nice” as an homage to her home. These generic cards are also perfect for recipients who are a little iffy about associating themselves with religious holidays! PEEPnPRESS also does custom illustrations and cards.
