Our Story

Halfpenny Postage is a design studio and greeting card publisher based in Toronto, Canada. Run by mother daughter duo Tory & Poppy. With humour and kindness are at our core, we feature designs and illustrations by renowned artists from all over the world. 

The name 'Halfpenny Postage' was inspired by Tory’s British heritage and celebrates the smallest stamp ever made in the UK – the halfpenny stamp. Each one of these little stamps cost half a penny, and was paid for in the 1800s with a formerly used British coin called a ‘Halfpenny’ - pronouncedha’penny | hey-puh-nee | ‘heipni’.

Since launching in 2016, we’ve grown from producing just a few curated collections to releasing over 200 new designs every year. Our products can be found in thousands of retailers across North America.
