"Maybe life isn't about avoiding bruises. Maybe it's about collecting scars to prove we showed up for it." -Hannah Brencher
Scars tell a story. Some of them can be seen, some are invisible. They all count. And they're all beautiful because they signal the fact that you survived, that you showed up for life.
May this card be a reminder that pain isn't the end of the story. That extraordinary beauty can spring out of wounded hearts and bodies. That we were built to bloom.

The Tiny & Snail motto is: If it doesn’t make us laugh out loud, or ache with the beauty, go back to the drawing board. (Pun completely intended.)
Tiny & Snail is a small card company created in 2016 by Grace and Leah, sisters who both love creating illustrations that bring joy into this world.
In August of 2018, Leah was in a life-altering accident while working construction for Habitat for Humanity (her “day job”). A forklift tipped over, crushing her underneath. Her spine was severed. Leah is now paralyzed from the armpits down and her right leg was amputated. One of the first questions she asked in the ICU when she could communicate was “Can I still draw?” Miraculously, yes. Leah can still draw and paint. This company of ours has become more important to us than ever as its growth will mean that Leah can sustain herself as a full-time artist.
Grace and Leah are obsessed with using the amazing, magical invention of the Postal Service to infuse love into people’s days. In an age of technology, snail mail isn’t just a novelty—it’s powerful. Seeing someone’s handwriting is such an intimate, beautiful thing these days. Being able to cherish their words. Being able to set a card on your desk and bring a smile to your face every time you see it. We believe that technology will never be as gosh darn magical as a paper card.
