Whew, let’s lighten the mood for a minute, shall we? Those mischief-makers toiling away in W+K Portland’s design studio follow up their cheeky Valentine’s Day effort with another timely letterpress greeting card project for, what else, Mothers Day (and Fathers, but to a minimum–dads never get as much props). The snarky/artsy approach remains in tow, with cards carrying titles like “Cradle to the Grave” (from studio artist Matthew Carroll) sure to warm the hearts of moms everywhere come May 13. See for yourself below:

Sure, dad gets some love to0 but just like Fathers Day compared to Mothers Day, the result is rather underwhelming. We do appreciate, though, how W+K’s designers tried to at least kill two birds with one stone here:

Anyhow, if you’d rather not do the usual thing and pick up a card at the last minute for Moms at Duane Reade or CVS, you can order one of these from W+K Studio Goodness store.
