About

We are a team of two – a graphic artist and a comedian – that makes greeting cards for lovers of dogs, cats, and clever, relatable humor.

Stacy and I met while working for a cutting-edge computer graphics company back in the 80’s, when everyone had bad perms, especially me. 

When work didn’t get in the way, much fun and hilarity ensued, thus forming the deep bond of friendship that has held us together ever since. We share many of the same values related to family, friends, humor, fun, pets, art, wine, and coffee. 

And we are serious dog lovers.

Back then, whenever we saw anything remotely artistic, in unison we’d turn to each other and enthusiastically proclaim, “We could make that!” even if it involved something ridiculous, like a sewing machine (which at the time neither of us owned), or a blowtorch (which neither of us EVER owned).

For example, there was our painted cardboard jewelry phase. That folly sprung to life after we ogled over some cool earrings and pins in a trendy shop. As if the wheels in our brains spun in unison, it was with great confidence that we (yet again) turned to one another on cue and confidently announced, “We could MAKE that!” Only after gathering up the cardboard, paints, blades for cutting, hot glue gun, hardware for the backs of pins and earring posts, and making a giant mess in my living room, did we abandon that ill-conceived idea in favor of trotting off to ballroom dancing lessons and magic class. Because, you know, those were much better ideas.

So of course it was inevitable that we would eventually channel this artistic drive and energy into something we could actually do successfully, and maybe even finish.

Let’s face it. The odds were in our favor after so many practice runs.

Stacy went on to wear 83 or so different career hats. They ranged from owner of a successful technical consulting firm, to standup comedian, to comedy writer, movie screenwriter & producer, successful writer of books, self-publishing consultant, and mother of two boys. In her own words she fully admits, any more than that and she’ll spontaneously combust.

As for me, after I left work to raise my two sons, having nurtured my creative urges by working in a computer graphics environment, I began an informal study of graphic design in my spare time…which took me about a hundred years to complete because I have so much spare time.

I eventually moved on to a more formal education in graphic art & design.

Stacy’s career has taken many fascinating twists and turns along the way, but two consistent tracks for her have been comedy and writing, both of which are part of her DNA.

So, one day, when we were discussing my art and Stacy’s comedy, the subject of funny greeting cards came up. We promptly exclaimed in unison, “We can make those!”

But this time, we really could.

Thus was born Sassypants Design.

So when you buy one of our cards, you’re not just getting a funny picture and a witty caption. You’re getting the culmination of a lifetime of friendship aged to perfection by wit, wisdom, experience, and love. (And if that’s not enough, be happy we didn’t try to hot glue anything on the darn things.)
