About Us

About Emily McDowell: The Business

A few things about us: We believe humanity is an endless source of inspiration, we think funny and pretty don't have to be mutually exclusive, and we find it creepily satisfying whenever a customer asks if we've been reading their diary, because it means we're doing something right. 

This company was founded on the success of one card that spoke to a truth about Valentine's Day in a way that wasn't yet represented in Greeting Card World, and that's what we most like to do here: identify universal, emotional truths and observations on being human, and turn them into products that speak to people. 

We officially launched our wholesale collection of greeting cards and art prints in May of 2013, and at the time, "we" was actually just Emily drawing stuff in her bedroom. Today, we're a busy team based in Los Angeles, and our products now include textiles, mugs, stationery, and whatever else we can figure out how to make while retaining some semblance of sanity.
