Frequently asked questions
Printer Specs?

I'm quite proud to say: I handle the creation of all my own merch, from the concept to the package: I own an artisan model Wide Format Epson Printer – uses 9 kinds of ink – artisan/museum quality. – The colors will stay exactly as vivid & crisp as they where intended to be and will stay as such for a lifetime if treated well! –
My stickers and Pins are weatherproof, hand cut and home made by myself.

I can also print anything you like at a custom size from anywhere as small as an inch to as big as 17x22! I can also do stickers, pins, magnets and even 3d prints! – I am usually available for hire and do custom stickers buttons and prints at an hourly rate. – If you want to arrange custom sizes/cuts/framing contact me!

if you have any questions contact me: samkalensky@gmail.com

How long does a Design take you?

Unique Pin/sticker designs usually take me anywhere between 3-6 hours to draw! Prints sometimes take upwards of 10+ sometimes, even longer to think about. that said its usually spread out over a few days/weeks. If you want to watch me create, check out the videos on my twitch channel: twitch.tv/samkalensky

What programs/materials do you use?

I am a trad-digital artist: I usually start with a quick pencil sketch on paper and then handle the bulk of my drawing in Adobe Animate using a digital pen and 24" tablet called a cintiq.

Sticker Sizing details and Custom Combos

• "Small" = 1"-3" | $4/ea, | Combo any 3 for $10.
• "Regular" = 3.5"-5" | $8/ea. | Combo any 3 for $20.
• "Jumbo" = 6"-"8" | $15/ea. | Combo any 3 for $35.
• "Page Size" = "8.5x11" | $20/Ea | Combo any 3 for $35.
Bigger you go, the more you save with the combo.

(sizes may vary and are approximate depending on design.)

My stickers are all hand cut & self produced by myself (the artist.) as such there might be some variation with the cut. Small stickers & sticker pages are rarer from me because they take a long time to cut out, but they can be custom ordered as well! - You can place a custom combo order via the "Request custom order" button near the top of the page. - Holographic finishes are optional!

Sticker Care instructions:

My Stickers are weatherproof which means they'll survive well outside, on a laptop or on a car bumper! – Keep in mind that your fingers and oil ≠ weather. its best to keep them somewhere they will not be in constant contact with fingers!! – However: a custom holographic finish solves that problem entirely and will look very pretty to boot!! I can apply this finish to any of my stickers for just a dollar extra. contact me: samkalensky@gmail.com or through etsy to arrange something.

Why Limited-run fanworks?

It makes them just a tiny bit more special that way: and also because I respect the original creators too much to be making a constant profit off of parody/unofficial works. - Regardless of how you fling it: These works are sold for a very limited time and where made because I am a fan of the series or character in question, usually whatever is being sold will be residual stock from conventions and they where made in mind of fun/celebration before profit! – When something sells out, I only restock once in a blue moon, if at all. I claim no ownership over the characters or the IP. [Other than the fact that I created the design/art on that note: They should not be reprinted, edited or resold by anyone but myself.] I always research/ask first!

Liscencing/Legal stuff:

All designs, images & photos featured in the shop are ©samkalensky unless otherwise noted! – My products are intended to be used for your personal use only! – my name is usually watermarked on the image in a way that you would not notice (it unless you where actively looking for it) - so, PLEASE contact me at samkalensky@gmail.com if you intend to use my work for something else or if you would like to work out a licensing deal! THEIVES SHALL BE ELIMINATED [• _ •]/

How long will it take to receive my order?

Approximately my shipping dates are usually on or adjacent to the 5th 15th or 25th of the month. - Once shipped most domestic orders take anywhere from 2 to 10 business days to arrive depending on the efficiency of the local postal service. (canada post usually.) International shipping delivery times may vary between 2 and 12 weeks. - Please be patient and keep in mind i'm just one person managing my shop, but that said, if i'm ever late with something or if something doesnt arrive, please dont be shy to reach out! Express shipping can be arranged too. :)
