About exit343design

On Etsy since 2007

all of my squeegees wear smiles!

My business exit343design began as a side project just after my junior year of college in 2007. The colorful stack of silkscreen prints I had amassed was large and I knew I couldn’t keep them all. I took a gamble and signed up to participate in a local “alternative” art/craft show called Art for the Cash Poor. I showed up with just a portfolio of prints, a friend, and two chairs; I don’t think I even remembered to bring change with me. Even the business cards I had were printed the night before! My expectations were low upon arrival, but I left with the confidence needed to go forth and develop my skills as both an artist and an entrepreneur.

After 9 years of side-hustling hard with full-time jobs in retail, a screenprint shop, and a desk job at a clothing company, I finally took the leap into full-time entrepreneurship in 2016! In my 10+ years running some form of exit343design, I have:
- taken my business on the road to vend in 14 different US States
- sold wholesale to over 100 different brick-and-mortar stores
- created close to 1000 different SKU's

Today, exit343design is still one girl (me!) doing all of the things: design, (most of) printing, packing, shipping, marketing. It's been a rollercoaster and I wouldn't change a thing about it! When you buy an exit343design product, you are TRULY supporting a dream.

Here are some random factoids about me:

- The French Paper catalogue makes me drool.

- I can’t get enough of the color teal or yellow ochre. Or woodgrain patterns.

- Some of my favorite artists are Etsy sellers themselves.

- I hope that one day, I'll be able to teach printmaking again.

- My entire art show setup fits in a 2005 Pontiac Vibe.

- exit343design is one girl, printing every color by hand.

- I am dying to take a proper class in letterpress.

Want to know more about me or my work? Just ask! Or check out these Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Do you do custom requests?

Absolutely! If I have time in my schedule, I’ll give just about anything a shot. In the past, I have designed and/or printed wedding invitations, save-the-dates for weddings, t-shirt logos, band posters, album artwork, and more. Drop me a line to find out if I’m a good fit for your project ☺

2. What does the quote written in pencil mean at the bottom of the print?

In printmaking, it is traditional to sign/date/title your prints on the front of the piece in pencil. I am not a fan of the staid “untitled,” so I try to develop titles that have a story behind them. Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions!

3. Where does the name “exit343design” come from?

The name is a hybrid shout out to the two states I’ve lived in thus far. When I was an undergrad college student in New Jersey, my resident classmates always referred to their hometowns by exit number on the Turnpike or Parkway. I’ve been a resident of Pennsylvania the majority of my life and my hometown just so happens to have its own exit number on the PA Turnpike. I’ll give you one guess what number it is.

Thanks so much for stopping in!

All the best,

Stephanie Harvey

Thank you for visiting my shop! Each and every piece is designed/printed/packed by me :) Since each piece is created by hand, there may be slight variances in color, shape, etc. I welcome your feedback and want you to be happy with your purchase- please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard

Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept exchanges
Contact me within: 7 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 14 days of delivery
I don't accept returns or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Digital downloads
Returns and exchange details
I do my very best to create and ship only the highest quality handmade items. I do not accept returns, but am open to feedback and working towards a solution if any issue should arise.
Payment
I accept Etsy Payment or Paypal for all transactions. You do not need a Paypal account to use this feature.
Shipping
I ship items First Class with USPS or how the customer has chosen at checkout. Shipping turnaround is generally from 1-4 days, with some exceptions. I try to reach out to customers about exceptions. If buying multiple items and shipping adds up to be unrealistic, I will refund the difference within reason (since I sell different types/shapes of items, occasionally it's difficult to gauge how it will add up).

I'm sorry, but I cannot overnight items based on my fulfillment situation at the moment.

I’m sorry, but I do not offer local pickup at this time. Exceptions can be made for large, custom orders over $200, but must be arranged at the time of ordering.

I ship to the address listed on the Etsy order.

ONCE AN ORDER HAS SHIPPED, IT IS QUITE LITERALLY OUT OF MY HANDS. Please contact the USPS with shipment inquiries; I only know what the tracking information tells me!

** I cannot be held responsible for mistakes made by USPS or any other shipping company. I will do my best to provide reasonable customer service, but there is nothing I can do after the order has entered their shipping system. If you have provided an incorrect shipping address through the Etsy system and the order has shipped, I can reship at the customer's expense if desired.**
Additional policies and FAQs
Feel free to contact me about wholesale pricing or custom orders. I do my best to respond within 24-72 hours, but please understand there may be exceptions.

RE: CUSTOM REQUESTS: The nature of screen-printing does not make it cost effective to produce individual custom items (I.E. changing the verbiage on a tshirt for just one single shirt). In general, I am happy to issue a quote for custom requests for orders of 5+ pieces, but cannot help in situations regarding singular items.
Privacy
I do not sell or share your personal information with any third party. Payment information is collected via Etsy payments or Paypal payments (whichever the customer selects) and is held to their privacy policy standards, separate of my own. Order information is retained for as long as Etsy keeps it available; this is not dictated by the shop owner. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via Etsy message or contact Etsy the company directly.
