Hello! Welcome to The Esme Shop!

We are a mother-daughter team - Esme Shapiro and Judy Dryland.

Collaborators since day one - we have always believed that it is important to bring work into the world that has integrity and joy. We launched The Esme Shop in January of 2020 with a mission to create whimsical, thoughtful cards with the environment in mind. All of the illustrations are done by award winning children's book author and illustrator Esme Shapiro and shipped from our headquarters in Catskill, NY.

You can learn more about Esme Shapiro and her work here.


Our cards are printed in the USA on recycled paper sourced from certified managed forests using non-toxic inks and renewable wind-powered energy. We also think it is important to give our retailers the option to go plastic free, and opt out of the plastic sleeves.
