like craft or die, but with less dying and more diy-ing.

you can see more of my art and learn more about me at and/or follow me on instagram! @craftordiyofficial

craft or diy started at the 2nd "make it on your own" in west chester, pa in 2011. my friends at the horror parlour organized it, & it was the most honest to goodness punk rock flea market i’ve ever been a part of. it was held in their spacious yard with musical acts & free tables. i spent a few months crafting relentlessly to prepare for it, & the leftovers from that event turned into craft or diy.

i have met so many lasting friends & pen pals through this creative venture! diy is rad! everything in my shop is handmade by me where possible.

craft or diy is now based out of so-called olympia, wa; a long way away from its birthplace in lancaster, pa. zines have become my main focus, mostly informational guides & perzines. all of them contain illustrations & text with a heavy focus on mental health, the diy music community, heartache & personal ramblings.

Returns and exchange details
if for some reason you are unhappy with your purchase, or it has been damaged or lost in the mail, message me and i can refund you (or send you a replacement, if it's not a 1-of-a-kind thing).
i accept pretty much whatever works for you, message me if you have a question. also, if you really want something in my shop and can't afford it, shoot me a message! i'm totally open to pay-what-you-can pricing.
pleaseeeee make sure your address is accurate before ordering!! or let me know if it's inaccurate asap after ordering. i verify all addresses via zip lookup (and/or before shipping, and i will contact you if i can't verify your address. if i contact you for any reason and don't hear a response within a week, i will ship the thing at your peril, and not be responsible if it doesn't arrive (sorry!)

i ship first class, USPS. any of the paper items i sell (zines, cards, stickers, etc) ship letter and are not eligible for tracking (buttons ship first class parcel and have tracking). if your order has shipped and it's been like 2-3 weeks, please contact me and i will see about sending a replacement (if it's not one of a kind) or a refund!

i ship using recycled/salvaged shipping materials where possible. i save bubble mailers and butcher paper and reuse it. when i buy shipping materials, i try to buy recycled envelopes and whatnot. i ship my stickers/prints with some kind of sturdy backer in the envelope when i can, so if you're like, "why did they send me this weird piece of cardboard?" - that's why!
Additional policies and FAQs
*how "mark as gift" works: friendly fyi, if you mark something as a gift when you order, make sure to provide the accurate address of the person you want the gift sent to (you can convo me or include a note with your order). you may also include a gift note, and i will write it out and include it (this works especially well when ordering cards as gifts). i will then send the thing you ordered to the person it is a gift for, along with the note if applicable. if you mark as gift without giving an address of the gift recipient, it just ships to you like a regular order (etsy doesn't explain this, and a lot of people don't seem to know).

i ship things out between 3 and 5 business days after purchase, and items take 3-5 days to get to you (if you're in the us) once they are in the hands of usps. international orders take a bit longer. if your order seems late according to these time-frames, please drop me a line! your order has probably been eaten by the mail troll and i will get a replacement/refund out to you.
