About Us

Welcome to Of Life and Lemons! The home of tongue in cheek greeting cards,  enamel pins, stationery, posters, homeware and gifts.

Here you will find a range of unique gifts for every occasion, many of which can be personalised and all of which have been designed, made and shipped by our small in house team. We do love a pun. And gin.

Of Life & Lemons is the brain child of Angie Freese who set the company up in 2011, shortly after the birth of her first child.

"Caffeinated up to the eyeballs and slightly delirious from lack of sleep I came across the quote 'Given Enough Coffee I Could Rule the World'. It was so apt given my situation, I started to look into more humorous sayings and began designing prints around any that I found funny or uplifting".


The result is an emporium of poster perfection, and a constant reminder to always look on the bright side. The range grew to include personalised products and in 2014 a license was signed with National Rail to produce a series of products based on the train ticket likeness. The offering soon grew to include textile products, mugs, keyrings etc and some prints were stocked in stores including Urban Outfitters and Selfridges.

Angie has designed every product on this site, indeed Of Life & Lemons is often referred to as her third child. She is backed up by a small team who run the Essex studio day to day, making the products, shipping the orders and answering customer enquiries. They are a good bunch - please get in touch with them at if you have any queries relating to products or orders. 

Angie gained a Fine Art degree from the University of East London and settled in London working in art publishing before returning to her Essex roots to raise a family. Now living in sunny Leigh on Sea, Angie tends to leave the team to get on with things at the studio and works from home designing the products. This is mainly because she talks too much and comes up with hair brained schemes which just make a mess and disrupts everyone. Or she decides to rearrange the furniture. If you would like to contact her with something other than an order query -  a press request, wholesale enquiry etc. then you can reach her at
