    Meet The Owners

    We met at Kingston University where Mark studied illustration and I studied architecture. When we started Ohh Deer way back in 2011 it was a blog which focused on illustration and art.

    Blog to shop

    The fascination with designing products quickly turned it from a blog into a shop. Our first ever stockist was the Kingston Alumni shop which was a huge help at getting us started.

    Supporting Artists

    What makes us unique is our incredible roster of over 100 talented creatives based around the world. We support every artist we work with, with a share of the revenue going directly to them.


At Ohh Deer, we are deeply committed to embedding good equality and diversity practice into all of our activities to ensure an inclusive, welcoming and inspiring place to work, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital status, pregnancy, race, religion, sex or sexual orientation.


Sustainability is at the core of everything we do. Our paper products are created using sustainably sourced materials and are lithographically printed which results in fewer emissions and less waste.

All our cards are completely plastic-free. In September 2021, we made the decision to no longer produce cards with a clasped seal as we believe these to be unnecessary and ultimately waste producing


    Our manufacturers are audited and hold all the correct accreditations. They recycle all paper-based material waste every day, including all envelope paper and cardboard


    All our gift wrap is made from 100% recycled paper and unlike most gift wrap, it can be recycled again due to the paper and finishes we use.


    We never use more than 30% foil elements on our products to ensure they are 100% recyclable.


    We don’t like to add glitter elements to our designs (we feel we are snazzy enough). However, where we do, we only use biodegradable glitter products.


Throughout the year we work with various charities and organisations to raise awareness or donations for different causes that are close to our hearts and values.

Through these partnerships we have helped to plant over 150,000 trees with Treeaid, raised donations through our checkout for charities such as DEC Ukraine Appeal and SARI and donated thousands of greeting cards to organisations to help them raise funds and sales in their stores

Unlock your creativity

You might’ve also heard of Papergang: another of our other endeavours that we're extremely proud of. Every month, we work with a new, talented artist to design a box of stationery goodness that’s delivered straight to your door.

Following the success of Papergang, we also launched Artful: Art School In A Box, a quarterly subscription box filled with useful tools, tutorials and activities for the budding creative.
