Queenie Best

Queenie Best, Owner & Designer

It all began when Queenie received her first Valentine in kindergarten. This sparked her love of snail mail and passion for paper goods. Although the company was founded in 2008, it wasn’t until 6 years later that Queenie left her 9-5 to focus on the company full time. One day she was rocking her baby to sleep and she realized her calling went back to when she received that heart-shaped Valentine.

queenie’s cards debuted at the 2014 National Stationery Show in NYC and Queenie has been busy creating punny cartoons for you ever since! She lives with her husband, their little girl, a loud cat and a rambunctious golden retriever in Toronto.

Queenie is also the co-founder of Q&A Letterbox and the co-host of the Toronto Stationery Show and Toronto’s Pin + Patch Show.
