Foulbite (n): A mark or blemish on the plate caused by the etchant getting under the ground, or resist.

Foulbitten (adj): An artistic affliction caused by a predilection for the entire overly fiddly process of etching copper or brass.

All the etched plates you see within are created by one artist, by hand. These plates are not machine or factory produced. As such, each plate is unique and will contain the variations associated with a hand-crafted work of art.

The images are taken from a vast store of public domain sources, many of which were originally printed on copper plates to begin with. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Foulbitten products are handmade and as such, some variance in appearance is to be expected. However, I want you to be happy with your purchase. If you are not satisfied with the item you have purchased, I offer our customers a THIRTY (30) DAY REFUND POLICY. To qualify for a refund, please advise me immediately upon receipt of order and the complete order must be returned prepaid within thirty (30) days. Please read all item descriptions for size and materials specifications carefully before you purchase.
At this time, I only accept Paypal. Payment is due at the time of purchase. If you have any questions about the checkout process, please refer to or contact me for assistance.

If you purchase more than one item, you may wait to send payment. The combined shipping will be calculated and I will send you a combined invoice through PayPal. If you do send payment right away, any S&H overpayment will be automatically refunded.

Sometimes buyers just change their minds, so to reduce unnecessary contact, unpaid transactions are automatically cancelled the following day.
If your Etsy and PayPal address do not match, your order may be held for up to four (4) days, to ensure PayPal does not charge back or hold payment.

ALSO PLEASE CONTACT ME to confirm the "Ship To" address through or in the "Message to Seller" box during the checkout process. Many Buyers have several "ship to" addresses on both Etsy and PayPal and I need to verify which is correct.

Please note that I DO NOT SHIP to mail forwarding or maildrop addresses. The order will be immediately cancelled and any payments automatically refunded.

I offer combined shipping when possible. Rates vary and cost is determined by the overall size and weight of the package.
Additional policies and FAQs

What is transit time? It is how long your parcel will be in transit, how long it will take to arrive.

Transit time is estimated from 2 to 3 weeks for Continental US destinations. Alaska, Hawaii, APO/FPO destinations etc, will take longer.

The estimated transit time DOES NOT include the following situations which are outside of our control:

- any postal service delays or disruptions
- any border/custom delays
- severe weather i.e. major winter storms


I do not offer any rush delivery.

If your purchase is required by a specific date, please check with me for the estimated arrival time before you buy, to avoid disappointment.


Orders are usually processed and sent out within 24 hours of our Order Confirmation email.

Exceptions are:

- if your Etsy and PayPal address do not match
- payment is a PayPal eCheck (takes at least 4 business days to clear)
- orders received from Friday through Sunday will go out the following Monday
- orders placed 2 business days prior to a major holiday/long weekend go out after the holiday

High volume shopping times may result in a slight delay (one additional business day).


I only use feedback when I receive yours. I always try to do this the same day you leave your feedback, but please be patient if the response is not immediate.


If there are any additional duties and/or other fees due upon delivery, these fees are the responsibility of the buyer. Customs usually does not collect duties on personal shipments valued at less the $200 ($100 for gifts).

True value is marked on all customs forms and your invoice is included in the order.
