Oatmeal Studios: $75 for Greeting Card Ideas



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:

  • Birthdays
  • 21st
  • 30th
  • 40th
  • 50th
  • 60th
  • Specific relative birthday
  • Belated birthday
  • Get well
  • Good-bye
  • Miss you
  • Thank you
  • Love you
  • Wedding
  • New baby
  • Anniversary
  • Congratulations
  • Retirement

While the editors are happy to see funny ideas, there are some things they will instantly reject. These include:

  • Puns
  • 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.
