Otter House was founded in 1991 in the South West of England. From our early days buying and selling greetings cards, we moved into calendars and gift products while working in partnership with many of the UK's best visual artists and designers. Working closely with customers, we readily established ourselves as the UK's number 1 producer and supplier of animal-related gift products and our popularity grew steadily in major garden centre chains, pet superstores and our one-of-a-kind One Stop Shop in-store greetings card installations now number in the hundreds.

Our calendar business reached new heights in 2005 with the installation of bespoke calendar fixtures in high street and supermarket stores across the UK. As our product range and customer base grew so did our business with the acquisition and merger of card company Images & Editions and calendar companies Jarrolds and Infocado in 2010. Our latest venture sees Otter House moving into licensed branded gift and stationery collections with early success coming from ranges in partnership with The Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew, Madeleine Floyd and Judith Glover.

Our charity fulfilment and mail-order division has grown from small roots working solely with The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association in the early 1990’s to working with many of the UK's major animal and human charities and achieving a combined retail sales value of £11million in the last 5 years.
