Welcome! 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—any 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 6 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 that 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—the choices you all make to support small businesses are appreciated at every level, and truly make our business possible. Thank you!
