I’m Sara Pulver, owner & artist behind Dear Ollie. Dear Ollie is my little labor of love. Named after one of my dogs, this line of paper goods can be a little bit snarky, but underneath it all it’s very sweet – just like it’s namesake.
Everything you see in the shop is made by hand in my home studio in Michigan, where I take whatever weird idea sounds funny right before I go to bed and put it on paper. Each card is printed right here in my home, so I can fully embrace my control-issues by overseeing the entire process – from creating, to printing, to packaging.
An avid pop-culture enthusiast, I often find my illustrations inspired by tv-shows, cult cinema, and other forms of media. I am a huge supporter of the United States Postal Service, and snail mail in general. There is something about receiving a hand-written note in the mail that just warms my heart.
Ultimately, my hope is that my illustrations will make you smile. If I can bring you even a small portion of the joy I feel when creating, I think that’s pretty rad.
All Dear Ollie cards are printed on heavy weight card stock made by French Paper Co. in Niles, Michigan. I am proud to say this line is 100% made in the mitten state!
