Download a Free Poetry Card

We're tapping our archive of haiku to create a variety of new poetry-based products. Shop for an assortment of cards, including customizable cards, on the page devoted to haiku cards.

If you're the do-it-yourself type, you can download a card here and print it yourself. You'll get a PDF of an 8.5 x 11-inch sheet, which you can trim and fold to a 5 x 7-inch card. The snowflake card, pictured here, works nicely printed on blue card stock.

The haiku is by Marilyn Shelton; the graphic ornament and typesetting, by Toni Toland. Qianyi Wang set the type for the Chinese version.

Our 2017 Valentine's card was designed by Naomi Masingale, an outreach intern with us for the spring semester. Naomi graduated from Pratt with a degree in communication design and illustration and is now studying for a master's degree in arts administration at LeMoyne College. The card reflects her interest in abstract graphic design, math, and modernist style. "I don't draw hearts that often," she said. "So that was an intersting concept for me to do."

We asked artist Toni Toland for use of this card mainly as a hand out for a 2013 workshop on love-themed haiku. But then we thought, Why not share it with our on-line followers? So here it is, available in several formats. If you don't have a color printer, consider printing the black and white version and coloring it with markers. The text box at the bottom of the card is for writing a haiku.

Toni recently retired from teaching advertising design at Syracuse University. She first helped us in 2006, when she created a poster for that year's poster series. It proved to be one of our most popular posters. She also designed our new line of haiku cards.

We offer this card thanks to Jamie Santos, a tattooer at Scarab Body Arts Studio. When Jamie reached out to us, we suggested she browse our archive of haiku, and pick out a couple to illustrate as note cards. Jamie's vertical text panels also lend themselves to Chinese, so we created Chinese versions, with help from our Chinese intern, Tong Jin.
The poem, by Jennifer Groff:

Flowering trees flaunt

voluptuous silky blooms

of new spring dresses
