Our Story

Warren Tales Lindsey Yuriko Warriner Our StoryWelcome! My name is Lindsey Yuriko Warriner, and I'm the human behind Warren Tales. I have a degree in Poetry that I actually use every day, and I grew up in London, which is why our cards are so darn witty. Next time you read one, just imagine a sexy British accent laughing too hard at her own jokes and it'll be like you're there with me. 

Ironically, I never really liked cards as a kid. I've always loved paper though, and because my best friend in college thought they were the tits, I immersed myself in card aisles and fell madly in love. When they say "Find your people," I never imagined there were so many magnificent weirdos all working in the same industry.

Some other things I love...Sugar. The USA has some very¬†strange sweets (I'm looking at you, wax bottles),¬†and it¬†makes an adventure out of¬†every gas station‚ÄĒany time I¬†travel, I look for new¬†treats to try!¬† Craft Beer. My husband works in the brewing industry, so I think it's fair to say we're living our best lives in San Diego!¬† Mini golf. I'm really bad at it,¬†but¬†who cares because it's¬†friggin' fantastic.¬†The world can be a wonderful place when we're whimsical.

Warren Tales has been peddling puns since 2013, and with 7 Louie Award nominations (and counting), we're the Leonardo DiCaprio of the greeting card world. In every way, this job is an absolute dream: I make funny cards, work with incredible people, and travel the world being a huge nerd. As Leo himself once said, "If you can do what you do best and be happy, you're further along in life than most people."

I am so grateful¬†for each and every person who comes to see us at a market or trade show, buys a card for their friend, and carries our¬†products in their store‚ÄĒthe choices you all make to support small businesses are appreciated at every level,¬†and truly make our business possible. Thank you!
