One funny effer: The bald guy from Bald Guy Greetings

If you’ve seen his cards, you know he’s funny. But the crazy thing about Ian Kalman of Bald Guy Greetings is that he’s that funny all the time. Everything he says. Everything he texts. Every status update he posts. Every minute of every day, he’s cracking jokes. Imagine a bald Rodney Dangerfield, but alive. (His business partner/illustrator extraordinaire Sean Farrell is no slouch either. The two of them together are a regular Abbott & Costello.)

Aside from being funny, though, they’re also genuinely nice guys. When we were starting up Old Tom Foolery, Ian was like a big brother to us, giving us helpful business advice that saved us a lot of frustrating trial and error.

He recently gave us an MTV Cribs-style tour of Bald Guy Greetings’ impressive new headquarters in San Francisco, and it was encouraging for a couple fellow cardmakers like us to see how well BGG is doing. They deserve all their success. Their shit is fun-ny.

But enough gushing (they’re our competitors, for chrissakes). Check ‘em out for yourself.

Nice. I knew you guys liked me more than I like you. Just kidding. Very cool. Thanks for the call out. Now seriously, take the Pilgrim card down and put up one of our better cards.

Yeah, he's got a sweet setup in the Inner Sunset.
