Garland of the Week

Breaking from our usual Card of the Week tradition, we're thrilled to spotlight our Garland of the Week, and here's the exciting twist—it's the only one we offer! But don't let that fool you, as it's a star this time of year, loved for its die-cut retro charm.

Connecting people through vintage

Nice to Meet You!

We are Laughing Elephant, a greeting card and gift company founded in 1969. Our warehouse and retail store are located in Seattle, Washington, and we are the keepers of one of the largest libraries of illustrated books and ephemera in the United States. From this library, we draw inspiration and images that become the source material for all our offerings. We curate our collections with the goal of sharing beautiful images with the world. 

We celebrate the golden age of design, when artists and illustrators were an integral part of advertisements and merchandising. Their beautiful, hand drawn images inspire us to make gifts and cards you will love.
