Father’s Day Cards: our faves

By Isabel Kallman

When we asked fathers last year what they wanted for Father’s Day it was clear that despite all our gift guides, it’s the cards from the kids that really stuck with them. And when rifling through our own memory boxes, it’s the bundles of handmade and funny and thoughtful cards that are lovingly tied up with a silk ribbon. I doubt my husband actually remembers that I bought him a copy of The Dangerous Book for Boys to enjoy with our son for Father’s Day back in 07.

If you’re not the crafty type, don’t worry we created some awesome print, cut and paste labels to put together a great personalized gift for your real-life hero dad. But, if you’d still prefer to buy than build, we did some scouting for you on the web. Our favorite resource is Etsy, the web’s home to artists and crafters from around the world. Act fast though because the cut-off dates to order some of these awesome personalized Father’s Day cards are approaching fast.

This one is by the shop, She’s So Creative.
Father's Day Cards (Superdad)

I’ve been in love with the handcut cards by the Storey Shop since last year.
Father's Day Cards (Fill in the blank)

I love this fill-in-the-blank mechanical wheel card from Molly Lee. It also goes along with all the superhero dad items this year!
Father's Day Cards (mini gift package)
We’re huge fans of the World’s Smallest Postal Service— having personally used and recommended their services before– and this time we’re gaga over their Father’s Day gift package which, surprise, is all about hero dad.
Father's Day Cards from Etsy
One of our favorite stationers, Tiny Prints, has a selection of individualized Father’s Day cards that you can personalize. I love this one for the bleary-eyed new dad especially.

Remember, you need to act fast on these items. Also, as with all Etsy items, if the item is sold out, convo the shop owner and ask if s/he plans to restock in time for the big day.  Of course, you can also check out the other cards from various sellers.
