Ahead of Valentine's Day, caring boyfriends, girlfriends, and spouses are looking for the perfect, sincere postcard to send to their significant others, and the rest of us will be overjoyed to find a company like 'Mean Mail'. The cheeky UK card company offers simple, minimalist designs with brutally honest messages.
Mean Mail's cards are an exercise in contrast. One the one hand, they're printed on supple card stock in pleasing pastel colors, and the font is a classy sans serif that's all the rage in the typography world. However, reading those fonts is when the cutesy facade falls apart. Messages run the gamut of life events, from "I think I prefer your old place." as a moving in present to "It's always about you." as a harsh birthday card.
