New Cards of The New Yorker’s Witty Cartoons

Launched in 2009, Paperless Post is a New York-based company that has quickly risen to become the one-stop-shop to send well-designed online (and paper) invitations and cards. Founded by sibling entrepreneurs James and Alexa Hirschfeld (who were just 23 and 25 years old at the time, talk about inspiring), the company has been wildly successful and, to date, boast 2 million users that have collectively sent over 75 million cards.

In staying true to their focus on design, Paperless Post has been collaborating with designers to create some super swanky cards. Last September, fashion brand Kate Spade joined in, creating bright and colorful e-cards and invitations. Even famed photographic cooperative Magnum Photos is on board, selling cards that feature a selection of their most iconic images (from the likes of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Herbert List and Eliott Erwitt).

Today, a new collaboration was just announced with the magazine The New Yorker, a collection that features some of their wittiest cartoons. Paired with a sweet message, they’re the perfect way to brighten someone’s day. Here are some of our favorites.
