About carolinepaquita

Sales 2,809
On Etsy since 2008


Pegacorn Press is a feminist, queer, “total-art-freaker” publishing adventure run solely by artist Caroline Paquita. Formally started in 2011 after fifteen years of self publishing, Paquita uses Risograph stencil duplicators and silkscreening to create unique and affordable editions, most of which are collaborations with fellow artists. Titles are distributed, collected by both private and institutional collectors worldwide, and have been exhibited at such venues as the New York Art Book Fair, the LA Art Book Fair, Printed Matter INC, and the National Museum of Women in the Arts (USA).

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
As a general rule, no refunds or exchanges are made. Most of the publications and/or art are very affordable (ie- accessible/cheap) and I try to describe it concisely, in order to avoid any confusion. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me prior to your order.
In the unlikely chance that an issue may arise, let me know and we can figure out an amiable reconciliation. Only then, depending on the circumstances, a refund or an exchange may be an option.
Once your payment has been received, your art/zines will be packaged and sent to you in a timely manner, typically within 3-5 business days, unless it is a custom order with a different shipping timeline.
***Items are shipped out within 3-5 business days via USPS First Class Mail and typically self-stamped, which means NO TRACKING IS AVAILABLE on most orders***

During especially busy times of the year (Thanksgiving up through the New Year), please expect delivery times to be drastically slower. Domestic shipping that normally would be delivered within 3-7 days, can take up to 2-3 weeks. International orders should always expect a delivery window of 2-4 weeks, no matter what time of the year, or where you are in the world. Patience is key—I am not Amazon with next day delivery, so please understand that we are dealing with snail mail USPS, which is usually very dependable, but can be excruciating at times.

If your order does not arrive within a month, it is only then considered lost, so please let me know and we will make further arrangements. You can let me know that it hasn't shown up beforehand, however there isn't much for me to do once I have sent your order out—it can be a waiting game with USPS at times.

Unless you specifically contact me to arrange tracking, there is no tracking information associated with your order, as I usually self-stamp all my envelopes.
Shipping costs are subject to change and are based on current USPS rates and handling expenses. If it makes sense to ship items separately from each other, that is typically indicated in the listing itself. If there are any questions at all, please feel free to get in touch—I don't mind making a special listing for you with the desired items, proper shipping, etc.

Publications are sent out in non-padded envelopes to make shipping costs more affordable and if any extra packaging is used, it is typically made out of recycled materials. I make every attempt to package things in a way that will insure that they will arrive intact, however, I can't guarantee that USPS will treat it as carefully as I do.

Since it can get confusing, I tend to only list basic shipping costs, however I openly welcome any and all international orders. If you don't see your country listed, please contact me about what you'd like and we will figure out the best international shipping options.

Of course, if you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out and I will get back to you within 1-3 business days.

Thank you for your interest and support of Pegacorn Press!
