ParodiesLost's Shop Announcement

Welcome to my little pocket universe celebrating both great art and geek culture!

I ship *fast* via USPS First Class-- and virtually all print orders go out either the same postal business day or the next morning at the latest. Under normal conditions, you should receive your domestic United States order within 3-5 delivery days.

International orders also ship very quickly (within 24 hours for prints in most cases); arrival times vary depending on your country's customs inspection and delivery systems but 7-14 days is typical for most locations. In 2013 the United States Post Office raised their First Class International charges by quite a substantial margin. My international rates reflect the actual costs of shipping and packaging. I do apologize that they have been raised this year-- I'm no happier with this than you are :-(

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions whatsoever! I'm always happy to try and accommodate special requests and custom items.

Thank you!

ParodiesLost's Shop Policies


Welcome! I am an artist and former professor of linguistics. This store celebrates the joy, beauty, and humor of art, language, and popular geek culture. If there's something you'd like but don't see please let us know!


Paypal and Credit Cards (via Etsy or via Paypal) both gladly accepted.


We make every attempt to ship within 1 working day of the receipt of payment and are often able to get your order out the door even more quickly than that!

International orders are very welcome as well and we keep the shipping costs realistic. (I lived in Asia for many years myself.) Please be aware we cannot be responsible for any customs or import fees your country might impose. We also cannot mark a shipment as a GIFT given that it is a commercial item as this violates Postal Regulations. USPS recently raised FIrst Class International shipping rates rather substantially. Our prices reflect the our actual shipping costs. I do wish they could be lower! Thank you for understanding.

Refunds and Exchanges

Items listed in the store may be returned within 7 days of receipt for a full refund-- minus shipping costs. (If you received the item as a gift the refund will go to the original purchaser so you may wish to contact them to keep them up to date.)

Additional Policies and FAQs

My goal is to treat you as a customer the way I would like to be treated when shopping here or elsewhere. In other words, I want you to be happy! In the very unlikely even that the postal service loses or damages your item in transit we will of course send you a replacement at no additional charge.

We are very friendly and are always happy to answer your questions-- so don't hesitate to contact us.
