Getting the message across

My career has all been about helping people to communicate what they have to, to people who want to hear. Originally this was in newspapers and magazines, before moving on to websites and social media.

A great way for people to get their message across is through graphic design on mugs, clothing, bags and other items. So this seemed like a natural progression.

I can come up with the designs (aided by my two daughters) but who could I trust to produce the items with the quality I wanted at a price that didn't put them out of reach of those who had a message to share?

It took a while but after much research I settled on a range of ethical, well-managed companies who I could trust to look after my customers as well as they look after their own employees.

All our items are custom made to order, so they may take a little while longer to get to you than others made in factories in bulk. I prefer to offer quality rather than speed!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Our mugs are microwave and dishwasher safe, apart from color-changing mugs which should be handwashed.

Our bracelets should not be worn in the shower, pool or similar as the black markings in the letters will wear off. If the markings do wear off, you can repair them with a black pen such as a Sharpie.

How long does it take before items are shipped?

All our items are custom made so we estimate that it may take up to two weeks before they are ready for shipping.

At most times of the year, they are made and shipped much quicker than that but at busy times such as Christmas they can take the two week estimate. We would rather let you know the 'worst case scenario' than disappoint you.

How long after you tell me my item has been shipped should I expect to receive it?

This will vary a lot depending on which item you've purchased and where it is being shipped to. Most of our items are sent from the USA although some clothing items may be sent from our partner printing facility in Latvia if that is a closer location to you.

Within the USA, you should receive it within 7-12 business days after dispatch, and often much sooner. Internationally, including the EU, it usually takes between 1 and 3 weeks depending on where in the world you are and how much interest customs takes in the package both when it leaves the USA and when it arrives in your country.

You can keep track of your parcel's likely delivery date using the tracking number we provide when we confirm your item has been shipped.
