About

Cute animals, terrible puns and swearing

What do you get when you mix a translator with a bad sense of humour with some watercolours, ceramics and a bunch of bad puns? You get Studio Froezel.

Until the age of 22, I was utterly convinced froezel was a word. A froezel (pronounced froo-zel in English) was the Dutch word for ruffle, an embellishment. Until one day I had to look it up, and realised the word my mother had been using all my life wasn't actually real!

Studio Froezel is a way to work out some of my creative energy. As a freelance translator and subtitler, I sit behind a desk all day (interspersed with brief bouts of air guitar). At the end of the day, I need some time to... sit behind a desk and paint (interspersed with brief bouts of air guitar).

My biggest inspirations are my friends. They're the one who encouraged me to start Studio Froezel in the first place, and many of the products I make were first made as a gift to them, or because they needed a gift for someone else. They also share my dorky sense of humour, which is a great plus.

I get my best ideas while waiting (in waiting rooms, on hold on the phone, waiting for friends to show up because I am usually ridiculously early) or procrastinating (ignoring the pile of laundry that needs to be folded, doodling while I ponder over a hard sentence during my job as a translator, or about 2 hours after my bedtime).

All items are illustrated by hand, wrapped and shipped by me.

Welcome to Studio Froezel. Take some time to read all the boring information so you can make an informed purchase, okay?

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
Payment via Paypal. Items will be shipped once payment is made.

You do not need a PayPal Account to pay for your items through PayPal. You can choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order click the "Pay Now" button. Scroll Down and you will see the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account

Please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
Shipping
Please keep in mind that items are shipped from The Netherlands, so it may take longer than you are used to to receive items. I will ship your package as soon as possible, at the cheapest rate possible.

All purchases are shipped after the payment has come through. Packages will be shipped via the Dutch Postal Service via Standard Priority.

Packages are sent without track and trace to keep shipping affordable and honestly, because the Dutch postal system is a tragedy and it doesn't really work. If you want tracking or other fancy postal options, please send me a message beforehand and we'll go through options together.

Please note that if your shipping address is outside of the EU then you may be subject to Customs Duty or handling fees.

I will let you know when items have been shipped and give you an estimation on how long it will take to get to you. I am terribly sorry for any delays or slow shipping due to restrictions and customs of your country.

I try to recycle and reuse packing materials to spare the environment and keep shipping costs down.

All cards come with an envelope. All ceramics are gift-wrapped. If the item is a gift, please let me know, and I'll adres any care instructions to them. It is also possible to add a personalised message.

General estimated shipping times, as told by the Dutch Postal Office:
The Netherlands: 1 - 3 business days
Europe: 3 - 7 business days
Canada and the US: 7 - 8 business days
Australia: 8 - 10 business days
Elsewhere: 7 - 15 business days

If your specific country isn't listed and you want to know how long a package will take to get to your country, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Refunds and Exchanges
If there are any issues with your order, please contact me and we'll work something out!

Items that are broken in transit will be refunded (or we can discuss replacement options).

Custom items cannot be returned. No matter how cute your pet or partner is or how funny your inside joke is, a custom item probably won't appeal to anyone else.
