Meet Kari

Owner and Artist at Little Deer Print Co.

Hello! I'm so glad you are here. 

I'm Kari. I live in Vancouver, Washington with my husband and 2 small daughters. We can usually be found at home eating pancakes, exploring the beautiful PNW, dancing while my husband plays guitar, or did I mention eating pancakes?  

As a former child therapist, I have always loved being with children. I think we adults have much to learn from their devotion to play and adventure.

Since becoming a mom 5 years ago, I have been trying to find a way to keep my tiny girls from growing up. (If I had figured it out, I'd be bottling it up and selling that). Little Deer Print's ceramic keepsake plates are the next best thing. And because I have a way to remember the tiny curled fingers that I kissed while I nursed my newborn for the first time, and the small chubby toddler hand that I hold on the way to the park, I say let them grow.

frequently asked questions

1. How can I purchase a Little Deer Print ceramic impression?

Little Deer Print Co. is a home business located in downtown Vancouver, WA and serving the Vancouver/Portland metro area. Impressions are done by appointment and can be made by filling out the "Contact Us" form on my website, or by emailing me at 

2. What can we do before we arrive?

I recommend that your little one be rested and lightly fed prior to their appointment, to make them comfortable during prints. Please dress your little one so that we can get the best hand and foot impression possible. I offer a sitting area for feeding if baby needs calming. I also have lots of toys to keep little ones & their siblings occupied if need be.  

3. How long can I expect our appointment to be?

Each appointment typically lasts between 15-20 minutes. The lengthiest part of your appointment is selecting your plate design, color for impressions and font options. The impression itself is only a few minutes. Once impressions are captured, payment is made and your appointment is done. I will then spend the next 6-8 weeks handcrafting your plate. 

4. When should I expect to receive my child's unique impression?

Due to the great care I put into each ceramic impression, typically plates will take approximately 6 to 8 weeks to complete. Please allow an additional 2 weeks during the holidays. Once your plate is ready, I will contact you to schedule a pick up time at the studio. 

5.  What forms of payment do you accept?

I am happily accepting cash, cards, or we can do payment through Venmo. Payment is due at the time of your appointment. 

6. Are your products safe for infants or children?

Yes, I use a very soft organic, non-toxic, clay that is safe to your child's hands and feet.

7. Will my impressions look exactly the same as the samples I see? 

Please know that I put many laboring hours of love into each piece. I take great pride and care in my work, spending extra time to ensure that what you see is the same as what you get. However, each plate is uniquely crafted, hand cut & sculpted, hand painted and one of a kind, just like the sweet prints themselves. Some glaze colors may have slight variances to them, being lighter or darker than the sample shows. 

8. What if the impression is damaged during production?

Ceramic is very delicate, and sometimes unpredictable. In the rare and unfortunate event that your impression has an imperfection caused by clay or glaze variances, kiln misfires or breakage, I will notify you right away and fix or replace it at no additional fee to you. I know how fast your little one grows, and I want to be sure to capture the reprint as early as possible.

9. Do you make house/hospital calls?

At this time I am only taking appointments at my studio.

10. Do you have gift certificates available for purchase?

Yes, please contact me and we can put together a gift certificate of any amount. I can either have it saved here on file for the recipient when they are ready to redeem it, or I can mail it to you or the recipient with a handwritten card.  Purchasing a gift certificate is the best way to give expecting parents, new grandparents, a family member, friend, or co-worker a unique and treasured gift!
