About

Hello hello, Welcome to Paper Llamas!

We make original children's art. Every drawing is hand drawn by me, right in my computer. I do not use any stock images or clip art. My art is youthful but not babyish, and nostalgic but timeless. I aim for a simple clean lined take on classic subjects.

We are a completely in house operation and handle every step of production, from the original design inspiration, through custom proofing and printing, all the way to packaging and shipping. I do all my own communications and customer service, so if you contact Paper Llamas you will be speaking directly to the artist. That said, occasionally my mom, Sue, will step in and run the store for a few days so that we can slip away with our three kids.

I hope you like what you find in our store. :) Thanks for stopping by.

Frequently asked questions
Why is the paper a different size than the image? What size frame should I buy?

My prints are designed to be displayed in frames with mattes. The extra white margin stabilizes the print behind the matte. To get the same look you will need a frame one size larger than the print. So a 8'' x 10'' would go in an 11'' x 14'' frame with a 8'' x 10'' matted opening. If you already have frames the same size as your print or don't want to use a matte, that is fine too. The white margin is easily trimmed off. You can do this yourself since the edge won't show behind the frame. If you are more of a visual person, I have more info along with diagrams and measurements available on my website. https://paperllamas.com/blogs/news/understanding-print-and-frame-size
Please be sure to actually purchase your art here on Etsy.

What do the sizes in the drop down menu mean?

The sizes listed in the drop-down denote the matte opening size that the print is designed to fit. There is an extra white margin in addition to those measurements. The margin should not be visible when framed. All sizes are in inches.

You say they are printed on canvas, why do I need a frame?

The prints are printed on canvas. It is the same kind of canvas that is used for wrapped canvas art. But, the margins on the canvas are not large enough to accommodate a stretcher frame and therefore should be used like regular paper prints in a frame. We use canvas instead of paper because it is more durable and resistant to creasing during shipping It also has a lovely texture that makes the prints look more like paintings.

Can I mix and match sets or substitute different prints in a set?

It kind of depends on what products you purchase. With my printed and shipped baby animals, feel free to mix and match any of my baby animals. My transportation art also allows for substitutions, but since proofing may be required, be sure to select the "pick my own combo" option. If you would like a substitution, be sure to leave me detailed instructions in the “note to seller” box when you purchase. I am afraid that instant digital downloads don't allow for alterations. But you can build any set you would like if you purchase the prints individually.

Can I get these images as digital files?

Due to frequent requests, we are beginning to make some of our art available as a digital purchase. If you would like one of our prints in a digital format, let us know and we may be able to help.

Is it possible to see a sample proof?

Much of our printed art allows for customization so yes, absolutely! Feel free to contact the shop and let me know what you would like.

Shipping tracking and Import fees

All US orders automatically include tracking.

Foreign orders usually include tracking while the package is inside the US. Destination countries often continue to relay the tracking info back to USPS, but this service is at their discretion. This often leads to very sketchy and sometimes inaccurate tracking info. Also, it is very normal for packages to spend a week or more in either US or foreign customs, leading to a gap in the tracking information.

The UK charges customs and VAT ( value added taxes). These fees are not part of the shipping fees. They are collected at the time of delivery and are the buyer's responsibility.

How do I get my digital files?

Once your payment has processed through Etsy, you will receive an automatic email with a link to your downloads. If you check out as a guest, the message will be sent to the email address you gave at checkout. We recommend that you check out through your Etsy account then you can always access your downloads by looking under your Etsy Profile > Purchases and Reviews. Be sure to download the instruction sheet for helpful tips on printing.
