When it comes to choosing Christmas or Holiday cards this year, fans of nostalgia, vintage and all things mid-century modern will be thrilled to learn about The Retro Christmas Card Company. A huge selection of fabulously illustrated cards that harken back to the 50s and 60s.
Mid-century Modern Christmas Cards
Started and run by husband and wife team Brent and Diane Dempsey, the impressive selection of cards from The Retro Christmas card Company represent their love of mid-century style and kitschy Christmases of the past. The original illustrations by Diane Dempsey are an absolute treat to behold. Her work is like part Disney Animator Ralph Hulett and part Shag.
The beautifully rendered scenes of small towns, tree-trimming, vintage cars, mid-century modern architecture and furniture are sure to be displayed on a mantel as opposed to being tossed in the trash.
A refreshing alternative to expensive foil-printed cheesy cards with bad script, pre-designed photo cards, or pics of snowy owls and prancing elks, the cards from the Retro Christmas Card Company feature things like Santa snoozing in an Eames chair, a family trimming a flocked tree in their Kisel-like home and retro style type complete with sparkling highlights.
The greeting cards are varied in size and shape and sold in boxes of eight, complete with envelopes. They even have pre-printed messages inside with retro fonts and icons – a huge convenience if you’ve got a long list of Christmas card recipients.
Their original Christmas Cards are all designed, illustrated and photographed here in The Retro Christmas Card Company Studio and 100% Made In USA.
Here are many more of my favorites:
If you don’t buy them for this holiday season, get them for next year. It’s not like they will ever go out of style.
In addition to cards, they sell matching address labels, stamps, personalized cards and party invitations.
Purchase them here on Amazon.
