A fundraising project for Kaikoura
and a great little stocking stuffer.

6 illustrated limited edition A6 prints. $20 a set.


All proceeds go to the
Kaikoura community.



On the 14th of November 2016 a pretty big earthquake struck Kaikoura, up the coast from us in Christchurch, New Zealand. We’ve had our fair share of quakes here, but it’s strange, this one hit home in a different sort of way— it’s hard to explain.

Kaikoura is our place to escape, surfing at Meatworks, spearfishing down from the tunnels, surfcasting on the shingle beach at Peketa campground — stuff like that.

The coast and the critters that live there play an important part in our lives, and for the locals — the sea is the lifeblood of the community.

So as a studio we made some calls to our illustrator buddies and came up with a plan. We also got some amazing support from our printers, paper suppliers & NZ Post — thanks! All the illustrators donated their talents to create our set of six illustrations depicting our friends from the ocean in a limited edition 6 postcard set. 1000 only.

All the proceeds will go back to Kaikoura so they can hopefully start to work out what to do for the people, the coast and the creatures that live amongst the waves.

Hi. If you brought cards we've noticed that shipping has been slow, very slow. some have taken up to 12 days.
NZ post are under the pump it seems. Bummer. Rest assured we posted each order out the day it was purchased and on one day we had 600 Orders! With Christmas and SH1 being closed it seems shipping is way slower then expected and we are at the mercy of shipping this time of year. Please be patient and the cards should turn up real soon.
