The Company

queenie’s cards is a stationery and gifts company based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Founded by Queenie Best in 2008, the cute, cartoony designs that make you smile and say “awww!” are inspired by everyday life, puns and inside jokes. The illustrations start off as greeting cards before they are designed into additional products, such as our popular enamel pins and plushies. Each cartoon has its own punny story to tell.

In May 2017, queenie’s cards opened up a brick and mortar shop! The grand opening drew hundreds of visitors and we also became an authorized retailer of popular licensed brands including Pusheen, tokidoki, Sanrio and Squishmallows. In September 2019, we moved to our current bigger and better space and grew even bigger. After pivoting to meet COVID-19 requirements, we closed our storefront in 2021 to refocus the company back to online online. Read the update HERE
