About Us


Hi there, my name is Claire. I'm an illustrator, designer and owner of The Curious Pancake.

The Curious Pancake was born into existence in 2011 as a result of my lifelong love and study of illustration coupled with my potted history working in greeting card shops that sold those horrible cards with the grey teddy bears on (you know the ones!). I was convinced that there were more people than just me who wanted original greetings cards, relevant to today's society, featuring great contemporary illustration, amazing design, or simply cards just full of the most inventive sweariness in existence. So I began my search and found a totally awesome bunch of illustrators, letterpress studios and designers with stacks of talent and a similar love of greeting cards.

On The Curious Pancake's virtual shelves you'll find no inner verse, no decoupage, no frilly edges... nothing but fantastic images created by our creative crowd of illustrators and designers from the UK, the US and beyond.

If you're a fellow illustrator and you think your work would fit in with the products you see in our store then we would love to hear from you. Email us at creatives@thecuriouspancake.co.uk with info and product shots and we can chat further. For all other contacts please see our contacts page.

I hope you love our store!
