Mean Mail make cards for those you love and love to hate. They’re inspired by the way friends talk to each other and the Oscar Wilde quote “True friends stab you in the front.” We pride ourselves on creating original cards that you don’t get anywhere else.

All Mean Mails are made in the UK using responsibly sourced materials with an eco-conscious printer. Since launching with 16 designs in mid 2017 we’re now in over 100 stockists internationally from Liberty in London to Compendium Design Store in Australia. We’ve created cards for Nike London, Candy Kittens and Shisiedo and have been featured by the likes of The Sunday Times magazine, Stylist, Cosmopolitan and on BBC Radio 1Xtra.

Mean Mail was created by Vicky Simmons, an art director with a penchant for brutal honesty and eye rolls. The first card she designed was for Valentine’s and said ‘I’d like to keep this when we split up.’ to give to her then boyfriend. They’re still together. Just.
