CHUX COLLAB #11 with our unsappy, uncrappy friends Old Tom Foolery
Old Tom Foolery is the brainchild of Joel Gryniewski and Lauren Gryniewski—two ad-industry vets who also happen to be married. Back when Joel was wooing Lauren, he had a tough time finding cards that were: a) funny, b) letterpressed (they’re both suckers for a deep impression), and c) not so dainty as to make her question his masculinity. So they set out to make their own witty letterpress cards that would appeal to both sexes. Old Tom Foolery launched its first line of "unsappy, uncrappy" greeting cards, The Footnotes Collection, at the National Stationery Show in 2008. Over the years, OTF has expanded its product lineup to include the Headlines Collection, Classic Collection, and Banner Collection. The company has won six LOUIE Awards (the Oscars of the greeting card industry), including the Rising Star award in 2010, and the Most Humorous award in 2012. Old Tom Foolery is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, and is proud to print all its products locally.
