The Polar Embassy Story:
Hello! I’m Jon, the founder of Polar Embassy.

What began as a Christmas present in 2020 has become Polar Embassy, a little publishing house for games in Berlin. We have been recognised as 2023 Kultur- und KreativPilot*innen by the German Federal Government for our work supporting queer artists and printing within planetary means.
This means: our games are made by an Austrian printer that meets the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute’s Silver standards on material health, product circularity, clean air and climate protection, water and soil stewardship, and social fairness.

I’d like to grow Polar Embassy into a launchpad to publish other queer creators' work. If you have a card game, tarot deck, or zine at any stage to pitch, I would love to hear from you! I warmly and specifically invite trans* and gender non-conforming Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to reach out to me at the form below.
