Permission To Grieve Letterpress Card
A permission slip to grieve, in case you need it.
PERMISSION TO GRIEVE
YOU, lovely human, are hereby granted full and absolute permission to engage in any or all of the following activities and/or feelings, concurrently or in no apparent order and without advance warning, for an unrestricted amount of time:
Talk about it endlessly, or not at all.
Ugly cry in public, at work, with friends, in front of strangers.
Not be your “best self,” because it’s all too much.
Feel better (without feeling guilty about feeling better).
Still feel shitty (without feeling guilty about feeling shitty).
Laugh, preferably really hard.
Be angry - at the universe, bad drivers, self-checkout machines...
Not know what you want or feel.
Do whatever the fuck you want.*
SIGNED: someone who loves you to teeny bits, even when you’re sad and slightly unshowered
* Except face tattoos, please don’t get one. Unless you really, really want to.
In which case, I’ll go with you and hold your hand and tell you it looks great.

Printed by hand on an antique letterpress in Brooklyn, New York. Due to the printing process, which is done entirely by hand, there will be slight variations from print to print, ensuring each card is one-of-a-kind. Like you.
Postage: square envelopes require additional postage
A great way to remind someone that you’re there for them
I could see this card giving someone a laugh even during a hard time.
When your friend is going through a hard time and you don’t know what to say , send this card . Reminds them that you are thinking of them as they are going through a hard time
It’s always hard to know what to say but this card helps let your friends /family know you care!
This is the single best card about grief that I have ever had the pleasure to both send and receive. While experiencing grief is far from pleasure, it was a bit of relief to both say and hear, it’s ok “not to be your best self because it is all too much.” This is the only sympathy card I’ll be sending from now on.
