About

Near and Deer to their Hearts

Near and Deer is owned and operated by Rick and Lindsay, a husband and wife team in the small town of Stewartstown, Pennsylvania.

Lindsay and Rick are a unique couple. Lindsay is a huge animal-lover... the kind that won't step on a bug, takes spiders outside when she finds them in the house, and wears PETA t-shirts. Rick is an avid hunter who grew up hunting deer, geese, and duck. His family even has a huge deer head (the real kind) on their living room wall.

In 2011, the couple got engaged and began talking about buying a house together. They began to bicker about how they would incorporate his love of hunting and taxidermy into their future home given Lindsay's opposing viewpoint. Their solution was faux taxidermy.

Lindsay began making fabric deer heads that were masculine enough for Rick to approve of, but animal-friendly. Rick loved the idea and encouraged her to sell them online. The Near and Deer Etsy shop was born.

In the company's early stages, Near and Deer was just a creative outlet that provided some extra spending money. After making a few sales, Rick began adding his own design ideas and starting creating custom painted faux taxidermy. By spending more time making new designs and different types of animals, Near and Deer began growing more rapidly.

In 2013, Rick quit his day job and now runs Near and Deer full time. Lindsay works as an M&A consultant and business valuation analyst full time, but works for Near and Deer after hours to express her creativity. From coming up with new items, to photography, packing, and shipping, they have learned how to work better together. They even get some help from their dog and mascot, Smokey. He serves as the clean-up crew, breaking down cardboard boxes into a million pieces and shredding newspaper, but most importantly, he helps lighten the mood on busy days and gives his coworkers something cute to look at.

Our products have been sold all around the world. Our team has expanded to a team of 5, who we couldn't do it without! We are excited that Near and Deer is growing, and look forward to the future!

Frequently asked questions

What is Your Production Time?

Each item is made to order. Our current lead time is 2-4 business days (beginning on the day you order). If you need the item sooner or need to make sure you or your recipient receives it by a certain date, please contact us to let us know when you need it. We are always as accommodating as we can be. We are often last minute shoppers ourselves, or just impatient - we know how it is when you want something quickly.

Large orders may not be able to be completed within this time frame because each item is made to order and quality cannot be compromised for speed. Customers purchasing large quantities are encouraged to contact us prior to ordering for potential bulk discounts and timing constraints.

Custom and personalized orders

Unfortunately, due to the initial cost of making a new resin mold for a resin art piece, we are unable to change the size or shape of a product. If you are interested in purchasing a large quantity or have a large budget for a commercial project, let us know and we can provide you with a quote.

We can, however, change the color of any of our pieces.

Can I change the color? Do you have a color chart?

Of course! We love creating custom orders. You can select any color you want - just send us the brand and name of a paint color you like, and we will color match it.

We do not have a color chart, as we feel they limit your options. The sky is the limit, so be creative!

Wholesale availability

We offer bulk discounts. Please email us at rick@nearanddeer.com and let us know which items you are interested in and approximate quantities for a quote.

I hate computers. Can I call you?

Often communication is easier over the phone. Feel free to give Rick a call at 443-255-0615 to discuss your order or any questions you have. We are always available to help!
