About

Oh, Plesiosaur.

Oh Plesiosaur started with a joke. One morning in 2013, I woke up with a burning desire to illustrate dinosaur puns. Things escalated, as puns often do. Now I illustrate greeting cards and dream big dreams.

I'm a graphic and web designer, lapsed librarian, succulent aficionado, and dinosaur enthusiast. I've been in love with illustration as long as I can remember. My childhood heroes were picture book illustrators; Chris Van Allsburg, Edward Gorey, Mercer Mayer, Alice & Martin Provensen, Maurice Sendak. During my years as a librarian (hey, once a librarian always a librarian) I couldn't wait to share these beautiful images and words with my students. As a designer, I strive to capture the same beauty, playfulness, and wit in my work.

Seeing my art in print never fails to excite me. Web design pays the bills, but print design fills up my heart. And when I create a new greeting card, I get to share that exuberance with the whole world.

I am constantly revising my process, improving my materials, and searching for inspiration. I use 100% post-consumer recycled card stock, producing most of my products by hand. Heck, even my shipping materials are recycled.

Little things make me happy. I love hearing from customers, getting a chuckle over a silly pun, or seeing a new card in print for the first time. I love the noise my paper cutter makes when I cut through card stock: k-shhhhhhunk. I love fanning out my Pantone swatches to choose the perfect shade. I love quiet afternoons with the sun streaming in the studio window, cat sleeping on the couch, while I draw new designs.

Most of all, I hope Oh Plesiosaur makes your day, or at least makes you laugh.

Frequently asked questions

Materials

Oh Plesiosaur is deeply committed to sustainability.

All cards are scored, printed, and folded by hand in my Baltimore studio. My standard card stock is heavy duty 100lb (270 gsm) cover stock. It is made from 100% recycled post-consumer content, and manufactured in a facility run on renewable energy.

Most envelope colors contain at least 30% recycled content, and some are 100% recycled post-consumer content.

My necklaces are laser cut from sustainably sourced cherry wood / durable acrylic, and hung on silver or gold-plated chains. All materials used are non-toxic, though I don't recommend eating plastic or wood.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I pack all my cards inside rigid cardboard mailers for maximum protection. Jewelry is packaged inside a cardboard gift box, with a muslin gift bag and care instructions included. Please recycle your packaging materials!

Gift wrapping available seasonally or upon request. Want a gift message included with your order? Let me know in the order notes.

Custom and personalized orders

Have an idea for a custom order? I've done everything from customized messages inside cards to dinosaur family portraits and one-of-a-kind laser cut necklaces. Let's work together! Shoot me a message to get started.

Wholesale availability

Can’t get enough of my delightful cards? Good news: You can! I am thrilled to accept wholesale orders, especially from you. Get started via Etsy Wholesale or ohplesiosaur.com/wholesale.

Shipping Charges

I always refund excess shipping charges! If it ends up costing less than estimated to ship your order, I will pass those savings on to you via a partial refund.
