The Effing Card Company

First, here’s a bit of background on TECC (The Effing Card Company). Presumably based in the UK, this website is run by a section of Regal Clothing Company, who are sort of like Snorg Tees or Busted Tees, except with some fouler language.  Regal is run through bigcartel.com, which lets you set up your own store online. The store itself has a few interesting shirts, but in my opinion, the really cool thing is this card section.

Introduction aside, TECC is a sort of online Hallmark, with the word “effing” used about as often as the Hallmark logo is. Every greeting, graduation, congratulations, and other card contains the word in some form, in a huge, marker-like font. While probably not appropriate for all types of recipients, I’d say that this is an interesting new way to send a message to a good friend. The sheer novelty itself calls for a good laugh in most cases, so give it a try. The seller even offers free shipping (UK only) and will handwrite the card if you’re a bit sloppy.

The cards are available for £2.20 each, with 50p international shipping.  TECC also sells mugs and business cards.

Currently sold out, this is just one of the 50+ items available at the store.
