10 great Toronto made cards to give this Valentine's Day
Valentine's Day cards in Toronto let you bypass Hallmark cheese for a very specific, locally-handmade kind of cheese. V-Day is corny at the best of times - but Toronto's artists and designers navigate the sappiness with ease by making dorky puns, poking fun at the awkward side of relationships, or making artwork so beautiful and intricate it'll melt even the coldest, Grinchiest heart.
Here are my picks for some of the best locally made cards to give this Valentine's Day.
This one is printed on heat-sensitive (thermochromic) paper - how cool is that? The price is steep for a card, but this will definitely thrill the nerd in your life ($20.58, minouette on Etsy).
Light & Paper
For a card alternative that you know will stay on display after Valentine's, check out these ornate papercut hearts, customizable with you and your beloved's names. You can even change the paper colour - and the quote, for a fee ($41.16, lightpaper on Etsy).
Is your significant other not into waffles? That's cool - Queenie's Cards has every eyeroll-inducing food pun available, from "let's avocuddle" to "you've stolen a pizza my heart". ($4.95, available at Queenie's Cards).
