Announcement   Yay, and we're back open for business! After a bit of a break recollecting my thoughts and deciding what direction I wanted Dorkfeatures to go in, I'm back. The Dorkfeatures brand has had a bit of a freshen up and I finally feel almost happy with everything (can you ever be 100%?!). I've got new printed bits to go in with your orders and I've decided to slowly phase out cellophane bags with my cards, as they seem a bit pointless, and even the smallest of changes can help the environment in some way! I'm happy to finally be back and ready to work on some new things in the near future too! I've also redesigned my website, so take a peek at www.dorkfeatures.co.uk

About

How did I get here?!

A year ago (October 2015) I made some things that came into my head into greeting cards, my head is full of these things so I simply just put them on cards. I've wanted to do this since I watched 500 days of summer back when I was 16? I remember thinking how cool Tom's job was because he got to come up with cheesy puns and make miserable Valentine's day cards (Roses are red, violets are blue... Fuck you whore!). What an extremely hipster way to kick start start my career.

My cards can now be found in a variety of places (which surprises me a lot when people snap photos of my cards across the UK - WHAT?!). As well as independently I sell my cards on Thortful.com and with my publisher Whale & Bird who sell them to Scribbler and lots of other lovely little shops like Crafted in my hometown of Newport. As great as it is to shop independent these companies got me to where I am now, so don't forget them too!

    Hello! I'm Lauren, I work full time as a graphic designer but in my free time I love to make tongue-in-cheek greetings cards. When I was 13 making greetings cards was literally my life goal and now I'm here *cheesy overload*
