Blue Barnhouse wishes you a Happy Colonoscopy


Blue Barnhouse Letterpress is simply awesome. I was idly coveting these classy anatomical heart thank-you cards when I discovered they actually have a special card FOR COLONOSCOPIES:


No, not even letterpress can make these brutal (and hopefully fictitious) colonoscopy implements "classy." But that's not stopping me from blogging it.

A few of my favorite holiday shopping suggestions from the past year of blogging. . . #1. Pandemic, the Board Game. Turn H1N1 into holiday fun for everyone! (Already have Pandemic? Z-Man games has an upgrade pack.) #2. Blue Barnhouse letterpress. Yeah, they're artistic and individually pressed,…

Just FYI: a DonorsChoose gift card is a great idea. The recipient gets to browse teachers' projects and pick one to fund, and when the project is complete, several weeks to months later, they'll get a letter from the teacher and thank-you notes from students. I just got the thank-you package for…

Couldn't resist the opportunity to comment on the coincidence.

Funny story about the Colonoscopy card: We not only make greeting cards, we also have a retail section in our store to sell our cards to the local folk.
