Oatmeal Studios Greeting Card Co
Oatmeal studios specializes in humorous greeting cards that encompass a range of styles and occasions. They love to see funny photo ideas, cartoon styles and lots of word-play humor. They’re also looking for fresh and fun-looking artwork in any media or style.
The types of occasions the editors will consider include:
- Specific relative birthday
- Belated birthday
- Get well
- Miss you
- Thank you
- Love you
- New baby
While the editors are happy to see funny ideas, there are some things they will instantly reject. These include:
- Gross ideas
- Mean ideas
- Prose or overly-long poetry
- Ideas that are too narrowly focused
100% of their greeting card ideas come from creative freelance writers and they’ll happily accept submissions from new writers.
Submissions can be made via email or by snail-mail. All email submissions will receive a response acknowledging receipt within a few days, but the editors will hold submissions for between 3 and 10 weeks for review.
Oatmeal Studios ask for exclusive purchase and use of any idea they buy.
Payment is $75 if they decide to purchase your idea. Payment is on acceptance. Publication is between 6 months and 2 years after acceptance.
