I make cards & art for geeky fans to share the love.

I've been making my own holiday cards for quite a few years now, and in 2009 I decided to open an Etsy shop to see if anyone else wanted them, too -- and oh, how it's grown! From those first few designs, to Cthulhu and Sherlock, watercolors and Doctor Who, bookmarks and gift tags and even some prints.

I brought my geeky loves into the shop early on, and they are definitely what makes it tick. Sharing the love of fandom through laughter is a wonderful way to tell someone you care -- there doesn't need to be a reason to put a stamp on a card and let it go.

I print everything here at home as it's ordered, from my own original drawings and paintings, and I even address the envelopes by hand to give it that extra handmade touch.

I use Strathmore fluorescent white blank cards with one natural "deckle" edge (the edge from when the paper was made), and it has a beautiful feel, like watercolor paper. The ink sinks in to make the cards look almost as nice as the original, and the envelopes have a matching deckle edge so your recipient's experience is as awesome as possible.

You can keep up with my art at or follow me on Twitter & Instagram as @amysnotdeadyet.

I hope to see you around the internet!

Thank you for coming to my shop! Every item you buy puts tea in my cup, ink in my pens and paint on my brushes, allowing me to continue to create for a living and contribute more than button-pushing to the world.

Each piece is handmade and unique, and every one of them has a little bit of me in it -- in a strictly metaphorical manner. Enjoy!

Returns and exchange details
I want you to be happy with your stuff!

- You can return anything in good condition for a full refund.

- Items damaged in shipping can be returned for re-engineering or re-creation at no charge.

- Items lost in shipping will be replaced once, unless there is tracking indicating it was delivered.
I currently accept Paypal and payment through Etsy Direct Checkout, including Etsy Gift Certificates.

Cancelled orders will be fully refunded, but only before the item has been shipped.
- I ship via USPS mail, and most items go out First Class letter post in a stamped envelope with no tracking.

- Shipping on a single card is free anywhere in the world. Larger items such as notebooks, prints, and card multi-packs will calculate your actual shipping costs during checkout.

- All my items are made to order, and I package on Wednesday and Sunday, to ship most Mondays and Thursdays, weather and holiday schedule permitting.

I live in California, so it takes:
- 2-4 days after shipping to get things on the West Coast,
- about a week for the Midwest or East Coast, and
- 1-3 weeks for most international, with the usual being around 10 days.

- Priority mail shipping upgrades are available during checkout for an additional fee.

- If your order hasn't arrived in 2 weeks for US or 4 weeks for international orders, please let me know so we can get you taken care of. The postal service isn't perfect and occasionally things do vanish into Lost Carcosa.

Shipping hints: The more complete your address is, the faster you get your stuff. If you live in the US, put your zip+4 in your profile. When applicable, make sure you label whether that number on line 2 is an Apt, Unit, Suite, or whatever - Etsy doesn't do it for you! Also, sellers only get your address once when you order -- if something's wrong with it, you have to tell me yourself, Etsy won't change it for me.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love doing custom designs and commissioned art pieces! Feel free to contact me with your ideas and I'll see what we can work out.

Most of my cards are blank inside unless they say otherwise, and they all come with their own envelopes. Cards are mailed in an outer envelope with just a stamp, unless you get a large number of them, so there's no tracking on most card orders.
