After months of work we've finally moved to a new, more modern shop platform!

If you had an account with us on our old website: we were unable to transfer accounts, but you can create a new one: simply put the items you'd like to buy in your basket and go through checkout. At the end there's a 'Remember me' option; clicking this saves your billing and shipping address, and credit card info (very securely!) for future orders.

COVID-19 Update: We're resuming shipping to the United States, New Zealand, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden and Switzerland. Expect delays but at least your order should reach you! Yay! We're still unable to ship to Australia, Canada and Spain :(

Cards by Jane Crowther

Originally from York (UK), Jane Crowther studied Illustration BA(Hons) at Kingston Polytechnic.

In the early 1990’s, whilst based in North London, Jane designed a small range of greeting cards to supplement her meagre income as an artist, initially selling them at craft fairs alongside her large multi-media paintings. The cards started to sell really well and Jane made the commercial decision to concentrate on her card designs. These first cards, called the Snout range, featured a cute little bug character with a plastic nose and wobbly eyes. The earliest Snout cards were a labour-intensive cottage industry – they were hand-painted and the noses and eyes were glued on by hand.

Today, every design has a tiny little bug hidden somewhere in the image. This was originally done as a way to link the art ranges to the original cartoon-style bugs of the Snout range.
