Hi there,
Thank you for visiting our shop! Melissa and Zoë is a collaboration between two long time friends who both work professionally as theatrical painters. While Melissa enjoys painting, she specializes in handcrafting one of a kind books that can be used as a starting point for your own work. Use them as a place to write, scrapbook, or store important memories. Zoë is mostly interested in custom portraiture and unique gifts.

Some of the items we list are fairly time consuming to make, so please give ample time (2-3 weeks) for completion. For book orders, Melissa may be able to finish pieces within days, depending on her work schedule. Just send a convo to check! We can do rush jobs, but please let us know if you have a rush job in advance so that we can plan accordingly.

This site is new, so check back to see new items!

We accept PayPal, personal check, or money order. For all custom orders, a 50% non-refundable downpayment is required for work to begin.

For smaller items, we use USPS priority mail envelopes. For larger, heavier items, We use USPS Priority Mail flat rate boxes for domestic shipping. Flat rate prices are currently priced as follows: Smaller items (under 8" x 5") are $4.95, and medium items (under 13" x 11.5") are $10.95. The shipping for larger items will be included in the price quoted.
Refunds and Exchanges
We are happy to give you a full refund or exchange any non-custom items because of dissatifaction damage during shipping, or because of a defect (we hope that none of these will be the case, though!).

For custom items: We will work with you diligently to create something that you will be pleased with, but because of the time and effort involved in creating custom work, we cannot give refunds for custom items.
