Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
  • Check
If you choose to pay with a check or e-check, be aware that it will hold up your order while I wait for it to clear. No offense, just better safe than sorry.

If you are confused in anyway about the Esty check-out process or how to use PayPal, simply contact me and I will be happy to help you.
If you order digital prints, there is a 2-3 business day turnaround time before they ship to get them printed (sometimes up to 5 days if it's really busy at work).

"Business days" are Monday through Friday. For example: if you place a print order on a Friday, it will not ship until the following Tuesday or Wednesday.

For non-print items, I make every effort to ship your goodies within a day or so of receiving payment, but I do have a 9 to 5 day job, so sometimes it might be a bit later. (Never fear! If anything is off-schedule, I'll totally keep you informed about your order.)

If your Etsy and PayPal mailing addresses differ, I will mail your package to the address listed in your Etsy order unless you specify otherwise. Likewise, I will always use your Etsy email address to contact you.

Greeting cards and small original art are swaddled lovingly and shipped flat; digital & giclee prints will be shipped rolled in a sturdy mailing tube.

Shipping prices reflect the cost of shipping materials (mailers, mailing tubes, etc) as well as postage. I use quality mailing tubes (not those flimsy skinny things you get at Staples) so your prints reach you safe and sound.

Due to the increased transit time & unreliability of international post, I am no longer shipping internationally, except to Canada. I cannot be responsible for any taxes or import duties. I also cannot mark items as a gift on the customs form, since I am a known business at my post office.

I generally use the US Post Office's First Class International, as it offers the best rate. Some larger items (like large original art) are too big for First Class and must be shipped Priority, which is more expensive. If you desire insurance, items must be shipped via Priority or Express mail. I cannot be responsible for lost international packages, sorry.
Additional policies and FAQs
I welcome wholesale inquiries about my digital & fine art prints, as well as my tiny paintings, cards and (soon) sticker sets!

I will consider consignment on a case-by-case basis, but prefer wholesale.

Unless otherwise noted, all artwork is unframed and unmatted.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Where do I find a square frame? How can I frame something cheaply?

A: IKEA has a very affordable ($20) ready-made square frame available in-store called RIBBA which fits my digital prints as well as some of my smaller giclee prints.

The cheapest way to frame something is to buy a framing kit and do it yourself. These are available at most craft stores as well as online. You buy the length and width of frame pieces that you want, a backing of some kind and either glass or plexiglass (available at hardware stores). You can frame a 20"x20" piece for about $30 this way.

If you need smaller square frames for my screen prints or tiny paintings, visit:

They also have a few 12x12 frames.

Q: Is there a white border around the image?

Yes, there is always a margin to allow for different framing options. Usually you will have 1/2" to 1" of white border all the way around the image. When in doubt, subtract the "printed image size" mentioned in the listing from the "paper size" and this will give you the exact margin.

Q: I like this print, can you make it smaller?

Unfortunately, no. I get my prints professionally printed at my day job and, without boring you with the technical details, it's a pain in the butt to get a special one-off custom print made. Also, printing costs do not go down very much for a smaller image, but people expect a small print to be cheaper. This is a lot of extra work for a less expensive sale with very low profit margin. Sorry.

Q: I like this print, can you make it bigger?

Most of the time, as long as I'm not super duper busy. Contact me for specific pricing. Custom sizing will add at least 2 weeks to your order.

Q: Can you make a custom version of this print with a different color?

A: Sorry, but no. While my prints are digitally printed, that doesn't mean the artwork was digitally created. These are reproductions of paintings and swapping out colors can either be easy or it can end up being a grueling pixel by pixel business and it's hard to tell which it will be until I roll up my sleeves in Photoshop.
