For those of us that have friendships where pithy barbs are really compliments in disguise, have I got a greeting card line for you.

UglyNotes describes itself as “a ragtag group of designers and pessimists creating a collection of greeting cards that express what you’re really thinking.”

What I like most is the contrast of the gorgeous, ornate lettering with snarky verbiage.

Cards are available in black and white as well as full-color versions for your, er, most colorful prose. All are blank inside. $5 each, or you can get the “Friendship Package” of four cards for $15.

Got a great cutting line of your own? Submit it, and you’ll get six free cards if your put-down goes into print!
