Bob's Your Uncle. And Mine.

The irony of being drawn to Bob's Your Uncle is slightly amusing to me. I first saw their clever typographic cards and products at the Stationery Show here in NYC back in 2003. I still am not sure if it was the clean type OR the name of the brand that drew me to it – my uncle's name IS Bob! Since then, I have seen them all around at various card shops and gift shows. Most recently on Saturday I saw some new Bob's Your Uncle bags that I thought were oh so clever; brown paper wine bags stamped with whitish-silver paint and stating witty adjectives to describe the wine (or perhaps the person bringing the wine). I loved them!
