handmade illustrated paper goods
I am an illustrator living and working in London. I started screenprinting at university and have continued to do so throughout my freelance career as it is an integral part of my illustration practice. I work mostly from my studio and also use screenprinting facilities at an art school in London to do my printing. I use only water based inks and source most of my paper from a local paper supplier to ensure archival quality. Products are screenprinted by hand and I run the shop by myself. I keep stock, photograph all my work and handle the promotion. I also order in shipping supplies, package everything myself and post each order. I focus on creating affordable, handmade paper products that are rooted in my love of illustration. One of the things I enjoy most about the shop is packaging and addressing each order by hand, I also screenprint labels, thank you cards and small scale illustrations to create a product that arrives at your door and will hopefully be a joy to unpack.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
Most of my orders are packaged and processed within a week of ordering at most. I am based in London so depending on where you are ordering from, here is an estimation of delivery times:
If you are a UK customer delivery will be via second class post which should take no longer than two days after processing.
If you are based in Europe orders usually take between 7 and 10 days to ship.
For US and other countries further afield timings are harder to predict but usually it takes between 10 and 21 days for your package to be delivered.
If you need an item at a specific time or would like to pay extra for tracking or expedited delivery just let me know and I can put up a listing that reflects this extra postage. Around the holidays I normally go to the post office more often so processing times tend to be faster. I label most of my packages with a branded sticker so if you're buying a gift and want to keep it secret let me know and I will post your package incognito :)
Refunds and Exchanges
Additional policies and FAQs
I update my shop quite frequently and also gage what to print next by customer interest so if you spot an item that you liked but is sold out it might be worth sending me a quick message so I can keep that in mind for my next printing session or let you know it wont be back in stock.
How things are made
If you ever have any questions about how something is printed or anything else just ask!
If you are interested in wholesale please e-mail me directly (you can do so through Etsy or my website karolinschnoor.co.uk) and if possible specify what products you are interested in and a rough idea of quantities. This will make it easier for me to price things for you.
