About

Do what you love.

Arthur's Plaid Pants is the business name of illustrator Jen Husted-Goss.
I've been lucky enough to turn my childhood love of drawing into a full time career as an illustrator. I received my BFA from Eastern Michigan University with my concentration in graphic design.

My business is named after my grandfather Art (Arthur) and the obnoxious plaid polyester golf pants he loved to wear. He was the most influential person in my life as a child so I knew I wanted to incorporate him into my business somehow. Even though he's no longer with us, I know he'd get a kick out of my business name.

I've been a freelance designer/illustrator for over a decade now. I co-owned & operated a design firm in Chicago for 4 years before branching out to focus on my illustration.
Arthur's Plaid Pants started in 2010 and my Etsy shop was launched in 2011.
I work from a home studio within our 100 year old Eastown, Grand Rapids, Michigan home.
I wake up everyday feeling fortunate that I'm able to spend my days doing what makes me happy. I can honestly say, I love what I do!

Everything in my shop is conceptualized, drawn, packaged and shipped by me.
My supplies such as paper & envelopes are sourced from local Michigan businesses. We are very much into supporting local, shopping local and focusing on our community.
My shop is constantly evolving and new items are always being added so check back often.

I currently sell my goods in 80+ shops throughout the U.S. Canada and the U.K.
My current stockists can be found on my website:
arthursplaidpants.com

Shipping
***I DO NOT OFFER DIGITAL FORMATS FOR ANY OF MY PRODUCTS***

►ALL U.S. orders ship via USPS FIRST CLASS WITH TRACKING
Shipping times are ESTIMATES provided by the USPS. The USPS does not guarantee specific arrival dates unless it's shipping Express/Overnight

► ***IMPORTANT*** IF YOU CHOOSE AN EXPEDITED SHIPPING OPTION THIS DOES NOT "RUSH" YOUR ORDER!!!!!
It will simply ship via the expedited option you choose on my next shipping day.

► I ship to the address provided within Etsy. If you need your order shipped to a different address please contact me ASAP.

► Once your order ships you will receive an Email notification from Etsy with your tracking info. You can also check the status of your order through "Purchases" within "Your Etsy".

► LOST SHIPMENTS: since all U.S. Domestic orders ship with a tracking # you are responsible to call/notify the USPS if your order is lost/delayed. You receive a tracking # once your orders ships. This is the number that USPS needs to track/locate your order.
**NOTIFICATIONS ABOUT LOST DOMESTIC SHIPMENTS MUST BE MADE KNOWN WITHIN 30 DAYS OF ORDERING.

► RETURNED PACKAGES: If USPS is unable to deliver a package due to incorrect shipping info. provided by the buyer and the package is returned back to me the buyer will be responsible for cost to re-ship the item.

►►►► INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING ◄◄◄◄

► Effective January 18, 2016 USPS has raised their rates. My shipping costs reflect these changes

► International Shipping is a bit tricky because the only affordable option is First Class International Mail. If you are an International customer you will need to be a bit patient. I'll have it on its way immediately, but you know it can end up on a very slow boat...On average it takes about 21 business days to arrive but at busy times it can be much longer.
Once your package ships you will receive a notification Email from Etsy with your tracking info.
Please let your local postal carrier know you are expecting a package.

► International customers are responsible for all fees imposed, including import taxes, customs duties, and fees levied by the buyer's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays of weeks or months. All international orders will have full value declared on customs forms - no exceptions. I do not refund original shipping charges for buyers who refuse items due to not wanting to pay the customs charges applied by their country.

► LOST SHIPMENTS: since all orders ship with a tracking # you are responsible to call/notify the USPS if your order is lost/delayed. You receive a tracking # once your orders ships. This is the number that USPS needs to track/locate your order.
**NOTIFICATIONS ABOUT LOST INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS MUST BE MADE KNOWN WITHIN 60 DAYS OF ORDERING.

*****International customers, I will not mark your item as a "gift". It is illegal to do so. All of my shipping labels print directly from Etsy and they are pre-filled out from Etsy as "merchandise" and it cannot be changed********

Frequently asked questions

Wholesale availability

Yes. I offer wholesale. Email me and I will send you my pdf wholesale catalog

Gift wrapping and packaging

No, I do not offer gift wrapping.

Custom and personalized orders

I'm currently not accepting any custom orders.
If you are a brick + mortar shop and are looking to sell my line, I do offer custom products.

Do you sell digital versions of your artwork?

NO.

Can I mix + match the buttons and magnets?

I do not offer mixing & matching on any of the button or magnet sets. This is why:
I'm a one woman show. I design, draw, print, cut, press, assemble, package and ship everything in my shop by myself. I do large scale button and magnet pressings & packaging once every few months ---This is a very time consuming task. Therefore every button & magnet set listed in my shop is already packaged and ready to ship. So, you can see how asking for a hand picked set is just not feasible. Thanks for being understanding! :)
