About

A cotton anniversary gift inspired by our wedding in Turks and Caicos

Our products have brought tears to the eyes of people all over the world. One customer personally thanked us as he was able to put a smile on the face of his wife from over 4000 miles away. That is just one of the reasons why we love what we do so much!

My name is Jessica Wilkeson and I started JW Design Studio when my husband Mike and I were celebrating our 2nd year anniversary (back in 2013). Cotton being the traditional anniversary gift for the second year, I found it difficult to find something meaningful. That is when I designed a cotton map of the place we married, and hand printed it on fabric. See full story at: http://jessicawilkeson.com/2014/06/22/and-a-small-business-was-born/

Before starting this business, Jessica spent 15 years in the graphic design industry as a lead designer and marketing expert working in manufacturing and international communications.

Now, over 3 years in business, we are a husband & wife team founded on celebration, love and travel and we do it all from the studio of our small home in Pittsburgh, PA.

Our customers are fond of traveling and many are separated by great distances due to military deployments. We work one on one with them to provide a personalized experience and we ship their gifts with care whether they are near or far to ensure it arrives safely.

From that first cotton anniversary map, we have since upgraded our process and now offer gifts for the first, second, third, and fifth anniversary celebrations of marriage. We work completely out of our home office using one large format printer and one large format laser engraving machine. We put a lot of TLC into our designs, and then we handcraft and pack your product from start to finish.

A portion of all of our proceeds go to support Animal Care organizations in Turks and Caicos Islands and Pittsburgh, Pa.

Will I be charged customs or VAT fees? (ALL NON-U.S.A. BUYERS READ THIS)

Unfortunately, Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. We are also not responsible for delays due to customs in your country.

Every country is different on what they charge for VAT fees and we cannot add this into our pricing, nor do we know who will be charged or what it will be.

What if I need to cancel my order?

►Before an item is processed:
We will refund in full if you decide to cancel before we begin your custom artwork.

►During the processing time of custom art, including draft designs:
We will refund shipping and any matting or frame materials, but we will retain our design fee, which is the base price of the product.

►After an item has been delivered:
Cancellations are no longer eligible. Please review Return Policy

►Non-Personalized Merchandise : Just contact us within 14 days of delivery

►Personalized Merchandise: (anything that is custom designed, names, dates, sheet music requests, wedding certificates, etc).

If you are not satisfied with a personalized item due to our error, you may exchange for the same item with updated personalization.

If any personalized info was supplied to us incorrectly and you need a replacement of your art, we will work with you to provide the updated replacement at a 30% material and labor fee of original cost, plus shipping.

Color variations & monitor calibration differences:

Color variations: Every computer screen is calibrated differently and may cause you to see a variation in the item you receive. What matters is that our printers and monitors are calibrated together, so they will output the best possible printed piece for you and that we inspect and pack each piece by hand, checking for quality assurance.

You may also see differences in the hue of leather items as we photograph under different lighting depending on the time of day and time of year. We strive for natural light, however because we live and work in the Northeast, rain and snow have a large effect on our photography process.

How does the approval process work?

Not all items allow for a digital proof and approval process. If your item does require approval, your item is put on a wait list and as soon as we design it, we will send you a message via Etsy convo area letting your know your art is ready for review. At that point you can request changes, revisions or additions. Once we receive your approval, we craft and ship asap.

We allow up to 3 rounds of revisions included in the base price of your art. If you need to go over 3 rounds of revisions, there is a fee of $10 per round.
