Announcement    25th January 2021:
INFO: This is specific to calendars sent from me (the last orders)... "I found this on USPS site (i am not sure exactly how accurate this is as some of the calendars sent the same time arrived late last week, so i hope if you are waiting that they arrive this week). The last orders are marked as "left Norway "on 16th December on Norway Posts site:

https://about.usps.com/newsroom/service-alerts/international/welcome.htm

"Norway’s post advises that it is currently unable to send postal items to any countries outside the European Union, with the exception of Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Iceland, Israel, Japan, South Korea, Liechtenstein, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and United Kingdom. Norway’s post is therefore declaring a situation of force majeure and has stopped accepting postal items destined for countries not listed above until sufficient transport capacity becomes available. These temporary measures are due to the lack of transport capacity as steps are taken to limit transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19)."
I say i am not sure as i contacted Norway post last week and they said items were leaving although a little delayed, a little confusing.

On Etsy since 2016

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.

Frequently asked questions
Where´s my order?

ADDITIONAL INFO: DUe to the pandemic, items can take much longer... by ordering from the store you accept that.

Sizing details

For measuring and sizing... UK/EU orders are standard UK sizing and US orders are standard US sizing.

Ladies fitted tend to be on the snug side so 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 return if it is warranted to be a genuine reason, please contact me privately here (i´m genuinely easy going). Items must be in resaleable/new/unworn/unwashed condition and returned at your own postage costs. 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.

If you require a size difference at more cost, you must also pay that additional cost.

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.
