Twin Cities peeps: Old Tom Foolery seeks intern!

We're looking for an extra pair of hands to help out around our very casual Southwest Minneapolis office once or twice a week. Duties include putting cards into plastic sleeves, packing orders, and providing general operational support to help keep things running smoothly.

This Intern position is unpaid, but it does have its perks: you can watch TV while sleeving cards (not just any TV—cable TV!), chit-chat with a fun group of co-workers, rub the belly of our goofy office dog, learn the inner workings of running a small business, and of course, help yourself to free Old Tom Foolery cards.

Hours are flexible, but we would prefer a total of 10-15 hours/week spread out over Mondays, Wednesdays, and/or Fridays. We are happy to fill out paperwork for school credit, if applicable.

To apply, send an email and/or résumé to and tell us why you’d be a good fit. (Please, no phone calls.) We’ll follow up via email to schedule an interview with a few qualified candidates.

Thanks for your interest!

Movember Madness

We love facial hair.

That’s why we’re shaving ours off.

For the month of November, the Old Tom Foolery team will be joining millions of other stache-lovers in participation of Movember, a worldwide event that asks men (and women) to sprout their fanciest mustaches to raise awareness and money to fight men's health issues. Movember asks participants to start clean-shaven on November 1st, then proceed to wax, groom, and comb their lip-jungle into a proud piece of art for the rest of the month.

In celebration of Movember, we're releasing a limited-edition “Field Guide to Typestaches, Volume 2” poster just for our fellow face-fuzz fiends.

A second take on our original tag-team with designer Tor Weeks, this hot-off-the-press print features 30 all-new typestaches. Each poster is screenprinted by hand with metallic gold ink on 80lb black paper.

And here's the best part: for the entire month of November, we’re donating 10% of all Typestache sales to the Movember cause. Visit our website for more info.

Want to join the fight but Typestaches aren’t your thang? No probs. You can donate to Old Tom Foolery’s official Movember page RIGHT HERE. (You can also view a gallery of each team member's mustache progress.) Your tax-deductible donation will help promote men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.

Thanks in advance for helping us give prostate and testicular cancer a swift kick in the nuts.
