Guinea Pigs and other animals in parody situations

Trondheim, Norway | 2,514 Sales

Announcement    27th July: A slight few day delay on printing and shipping the face masks due to my supplier coping with massive demand from various independent artists.

30th Jun: ePacket international is no longer an option to every country due to changes with USPS and their dealing with international customers. Until my EU supplier is back to work non-US purchases can take up to 8 weeks... sigh =(

29th May: Items such as cushions/pillows, Tote Bags and Posters are now taking weeks rather than days to manufacture so i have temporarily disabled them on my store.

24th March 2020: Due to the current worldwide situation relating to COVID-19, items my EU Tee suppliers have had to temporarily shut down. All tee orders will be fulfilled in the US so delivery times on tees are now much longer (EU: 4-6 weeks, Canada Australia 4-8 weeks).

Guinea Pig parodies... with some other animals too!

My name is Alan and I am self taught in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign… and for the last decade or so i have worked freelance for advertising agencies, bands and pubs/clubs covering many aspects of design in the city of Trondheim, Norway. Piggie Parodies was started just for fun really and some pieces i designed i put on an independent printers site and they became popular enough to do it far more professional. Now, i just photograph them when i can and if i see a funny or cute pose, i will try to find a concept that works with that pose then go to work. I also use legally purchased stock photos of the Guinea Pigs if i find a Piggie i like, and also use Stock images for the backgrounds and interactive elements in the designs. 2018 sees me relocated to France with a beautiful woman, the French Unicorn in my life, and i look forward to expanding my creativity with other lines, concepts and more original pieces.

Sizing details

For measuring and sizing guide, see t-shirt sizing guide here: http://piggieparodies.com/t-shirt-sizing-guide/

If you are in doubt, order one size up.

Tees: Does washing them affect the print?

All digital printed clothing, especially those designed with darker colours, are likely to fade over time. Digital designs can be preserved very well for 1-2 years if these simple care instructions are followed.

*T-shirts should be washed inside out and set on a gentle machine cycle in cold water.
* To avoid any form of fading, machine drying is not recommended.
* Lay flat to dry.
* Dry cleaning is not recommended.

Refund Policy

The items are generally non-returnable as they are custom printed to each orders requirements so check sizing.
If the tee is defective or the received product is not correct to what you ordered it will come with a 60-day money-back guarantee.
To arrange a smooth return, please contact me privately here (i´m a nice guy... honest!). Items must be in resaleable condition (T-shirts must be unworn and unwashed). Defective products may be exchanged or returned for a refund. There is no restocking fee for returns – you will get the full purchase price of the item, less the shipping and handling fee.

Why are the designs listed in certain colours only?

Well, some designs work better on certain colours which is usually dictated by the background of the art... for example a black or dark background usually works best on a black or dark tee. Also, some have text outwith the main artwork which dictates a dark or light tee to print on.

Why only a couple of colour choices per design?

Well, part of that answer is above in the previous question... the other reason is i have different styles and Etsy only has so many images available. I found, via feedback, people prefer larger images instead of one picture with multiple smaller images... so i have limited the designs to certain coloured tees to suit the availability of pictures i can post. Also, i have picked the best selling colours, some tees in the past i offered up to 5 colours and continually only sold one or 2 colours.

Why do some styles of clothing have less colours available than the regular tees?

My manufacturer, Neatoshop, has a great colour selection... but even they have limits. For example Unisex/Mens tees are available in many colours as are Ladies fitted, XXXL+ and Youth. Tank Tops and V-Necks are only available in Black, Navy, Red and White... so i try to make sure each design is at least available in the items with less colour choices.
