OUTSIDE GREETING: Happy Birthday my friend.
INSIDE GREETING: Thanks for always being there.
This sweet image of unlikely companions makes a perfect birthday card from one friend to another. Our greeting cards are custom printed at our location in Seattle, WA. They come bagged with an envelope. We love illustration art from old children's books and early, printed ephemera. These cards reflect this interest in bringing delightful art back to life.
Made in United States of America
Laughing Elephant is a publisher of greeting cards, gifts, and stationery products emphasizing graphic design, great illustration, childhood, friendship and idealism. Founded as Green Tiger Press in 1967 by Harold and Sandra Darling, following their vision of bringing beautiful lost or forgotten images back into the public eye. Along the way, the 'Good Dog, Carl' series of best-selling children's books was created. Laughing Elephant is now the exclusive source of Good Dog Carl cards and prints, available signed by Alexandra Day and Carl. In 1993 the company moved to Seattle renamed Laughing Elephant. Laughing Elephant is now a second generation family business, headed by Chev Darling, and still passionate about Connecting People through Vintage. We have a very large library of antique illustrated books and pictorial ephemera collected over 50 years of shopping in flea markets, antique shops, bookshops and estate sales. This collection provides a rich resource of beautiful images to fuel our unique designs. We believe that the authenticity of our sources enables us to create products that have a particular power to inspire and connect people. We also commission modern artists, such as Hooligan Ruth and Corey Steffen, whose aesthetic broadens our offerings. A collaboration with Random House and Diane Muldrow's "Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Little Golden Book" allows us to offer images taken from the beloved Little Golden Books in a variety of forms.
