About LoveAtFirstBark

Sales 2,581
On Etsy since 2011

You Know Your Pet is Special…We Do Too!

That’s why each Love At First Bark product is custom, personalized, and one of a kind.

Available in a wide variety of animal options, our signature line of pet art silhouettes combine carefully curated images with the name(s) of your pet(s) to create custom pet portraits both new and seasoned pet parents will love and owners of pets who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge will cherish.

Since no two pets are ever alike, neither is a Love At First Bark product. We don’t simply use stock images that can’t be altered. We can take our images and work with you to modify aspects such as ears, tails, height, weight, coat color and length; even creating a custom image from scratch to capture mixed breed pets. It’s always our goal to represent your pet as accurately as possible.

SPOILER ALERT: Tears or a full-on cry may occur after receiving one of our products so have a tissue handy just in case :)

We currently carry the following animals (and are always working to add new ones):

Dogs
Cats
Horses
Bunnies
Chickens
Guinea Pigs
Ferrets
Pigs
Birds
Bearded Dragons
and more!

Along with our pet art silhouettes, we also carry a variety of custom pet themed designs that make perfect personalized gifts for housewarmings, engagements, weddings, nursery décor, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and more. From heartfelt to humorous, every product we offer centers on the wonderful (and sometimes wacky) life you can have when shared with a pet.

A general animal lover, lifelong dog owner, and current German Shepherd Mom, Love At First Bark is truly a work of love. With over 2,000+ orders and five-star reviews, we continue to bring pet parents unique designs they will love themselves or choose to give as special gifts to others.

Frequently asked questions
REFUND POLICY ON PHYSICAL PRODUCTS

Because most of our products are custom/personalized, we do not accept returns or exchanges. If there is a physical defect in the product or the packaging it came in was damaged, please contact us with photo(s) of the defect/damage and we will replace it for you. If we made an error on your order, we will happily send out a replacement to you at no cost.

For personalized orders, please check for grammatical errors as the exact wording you provide is copied and pasted to lessen errors.

Art prints damaged by pulling them out of the protective cello sleeve or handled outside the sleeve can be replaced at a 50% discount + shipping fee.

Please send any correspondence you may have through Etsy to make sure we receive your message.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

Each item is separately printed, sublimated, packaged and inspected for vibrancy and clarity. You will never receive a blurry or low quality product.

ADDRESS ISSUES

Items are mailed to address provided at the time of purchase. We are not responsible for addresses that haven’t been updated in Etsy accounts or address change requests made after purchase is completed.

If your item shows Delivered, but is not found, please check with neighbors and others in the household. If an apartment, check with the property management office. You can also call your local PO with the tracking number and/or check with your mail carrier.

If package is still not found and mailbox is not secure (keyed lock), fill out the postal theft form at USPS.com.

I am not responsible for items marked delivered, nor for lost or stolen packages since they are delivered by USPS and are therefore out of my hands and control.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE MY ORDER TO ARRIVE?

1) Production Time: Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be designed and created.

2) Once your order ships, arrival time depends on the shipping method selected:

STANDARD SHIPPING: 3-5 Business Days (approximate)

PRIORITY MAIL: 2-3 Business Days (approximate)

Please note there are no guarantees your order will arrive within these time frames; they can vary depending on the USPS delivery system. No shipping refund will be issued for packages upgraded to Priority that arrive later than the 2-3 day time frame.

TRACKING INCLUDED! Every order we ship includes a tracking number. Be sure to check your email from Etsy where you will receive this information. All items ship from IL using USPS.

CAN I ADD A SPECIAL REQUEST WITH MY ORDER?

Absolutely! We have changed designs to include a dog's name, represent multiple-dog or pet households, used specific colors, flipped images so they face each other, altered images to make legs shorter, a body wider, etc.

In terms of our coffee mugs, while we place images so the handle is on the left (as show in listing photos), we can also change the image so the handle is on the right. Simply add that in the "notes to seller" and we'll be happy to switch the placement.

CAN I REQUEST AN ANIMAL YOU DON'T CURRENTLY OFFER?

Certainly! We try to stock the most popular animals/breeds, but we don't have every. single. one. If you're looking for another breed of dog, cat, horse, etc. or a completely different animal altogether, contact us as we (a) may already have it ready to go so we can create a listing for you or (b) we'll work to see if it's something we can add to our collection. The more interest there is on a specific animal, the better idea we have that it's something we should permanently add to selection. When in doubt, convo us- we love hearing from you!

CAN I ORDER MY PRINT WITH THE FRAME?

Any of our 8x10 art prints can be framed.

For a black wood frame: https://etsy.me/34uZxM6or

For a lighted frame: https://etsy.me/2EdBU2f

Simply add either framing option plus the print you'd like to place it in (there will be two items in your cart).

HOW ARE YOUR MUGS CREATED?

Each mug is hand sublimated in our studio using original artwork we created. Because each mug is custom made to order, we use mockups of 15 oz. mugs along with several examples of artwork to give you an idea of what a finished product would look like. Unlike an art print that is printed out on paper, however, sublimated images are literally "baked" onto a mug. Silhouettes contain several names of various sizes within an image and larger names can bake a bit brighter because they contain more ink than smaller names that use less ink. Each mug is unique, handmade, and custom based on the names you provide, the length of names, the image used and how the names form the shape of the image.

REFUND POLICY OF PURCHASES/PROOFS

After purchasing a print, a complimentary proof can be requested showing you what the finished product will look like. If, in the event, an image can't be created that matches what you are envisioning, a refund of the purchase price less a $15 artist fee will be provided.

Please note that each image is custom and one-of-a-kind. A lot of time and effort also goes into creating each image. Due to their personalized nature, these images cannot be resold or used for any other purpose. Therefore, the time to create them will be factored into any refund.

CAN I HAVE A CUSTOM PIECE OF ART CREATED?

Absolutely! We offer a custom listing you can purchase for artwork that can be created from a photograph(s) and other customized features you may want that go beyond our normal word art pieces.

Due to the completely custom nature of these pieces, this listing comes with a non-refundable fee of $15 to cover the costs of creating individual pieces of art to send as proofs. We understand that this artwork is very personal. If, for whatever reason, you are not happy with the proofs, we will refund your purchase price, less the $15 artist fee.
