Tense and Urgent set out to make cards and gifts for the less oft celebrated (though no less pivotal) events in life, like one night stands, mid-life crisis, and dark nights of the soul. Since then, we've lightened up a little and broadened our line to include a full range of greeting cards, mugs, notebooks, notepads, totes, and even coasters, albeit drunken inner voice coasters.

In a style that's irreverent, obsessive, real, and dark humoured, Tense and Urgent makes goods from the stuff of real life - for real life. We're glad you found us. Welcome.
