About

And then there were three...

Sugar, spice and everything nice? Blood, sweat and tears?
More like ink, Photoshop and everything in between!

Blind Alley Studios got it's "official" start in the summer of 2009 as the storefront for our main artist by the moniker of Blindman. Not that we really knew what we were doing back then (and to be honest, we all look back at it now and laugh), but we got hooked when we sold our first piece of artwork and have been on a roll ever since. We've expanded dramatically since the days of selling just buttons and commissions with a singular goal in mind--to get better at what we do. From the very first customer that ever said "thank you" to us, we realized that you guys deserve the best.

And we're determined to get it to you. That's right; we now have not one, but three artists and sell everything from traditional artwork to embroidered patches, messenger bags, hats, lip balm...you name it.

Blindman is still our main artist and responsible for all of our actual artwork and anything that requires the finesse of an artist's hand. Rowan is our technical artist, responsible for vectoring, design work, printing and actual production. Rena is our jack-of-all trades apprentice, PR wizard and blossoming fiber craftsman. With our powers combined, we bring you the brand new Blind Alley Corner Shop, with the best of our mobile shop now available online!

Life is too short not to enjoy food. The same is true for art.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
We currently accept Paypal, credit cards via direct checkout and Etsy giftcards! We always try and ship within 1-3 days of receipt of payment, but any extraordinary circumstances (holidays, etc.) will be posted in our shop announcements.

Custom orders/reserved listings cannot be cancelled due to the work that goes into them even before shipping, but all other orders can be cancelled up until a shipping label is created/the item is shipped.

Customers are responsible for all customs, duty and import fees. If buying internationally, please be aware that you may receive a slip/ticket (probably with your normal mail) to come pick up your order at a local post office instead of actually receiving the package itself. This is often time-sensitive. THE POST OFFICE WILL RETURN YOUR PACKAGE IF YOU DO NOT PICK IT UP. Unfortunately, due to the cost of international shipping, we will be unable to send it back to you if this happens without an additional shipping charge. Please plan accordingly! We want to make sure you get your packages ^___^
Shipping
We ship ASAP (*usually* the next business day) with tracking from USPS. We love what we send you and we want to make sure you get it. [Note: Some items require minor modifications before shipment, hence the 1-3 processing time listed on all items.]

All packages under 1lb ship First Class mail by default, which should arrive in 2-5 business days from shipping notice. Packages over 1lb usually ship as Priority mail (with insurance) and should arrive in 1-3 business days of shipping notice. We're currently working on adding additional insurance and express options for all items!

International orders ship First Class International, which means that how long it takes to reach the destination country will depend on how long it takes to clear customs. If you need an item within a specific timeframe, just contact us about express options! Please also be aware that tracking updates can be uncertain after a package reaches a destination country because local post offices handle things differently. Please note the following:

Refunds and Exchanges
We're only human, and so is everyone at the post office. Unfortunately, this means that no matter how much love and care we put into packaging our products to make sure you get them how we intended, mistakes get made. If you ever receive an item you suspect isn't in its original condition, just contact us! (We make art because it makes us happy, and we want it to make you happy too!) Please let us know within a week of receiving your item if you suspect this is the case, as this is a time sensitive matter and we will need to take it up with the post office.

Unfortunately, due to the consumable nature of some of our merchandise, we are unable to accept returns for other reasons, bar extraordinary circumstances. Please feel free to contact us about this if you have concerns or other questions. We're always happy to help ^___^
