About

Art and Land are connected

I graduated with a B.F.A. in Printmaking from Northern Illinois University in 2010 and have been a self-employed artist ever since. One day, I'd love to purchase a shiny new Takach Press! But I have always found more creativity when working with what I have at hand - literally - I hand print my woodblocks with a wooden spoon and Japanese leaf barengawa. Just recently, I have finally overcome my fear of the beast-of-a-press that my father-in-law has had for decades so now I've been printing with an old Conrad Dickerson Machine Press - great for saving my hands from carpal tunnel syndrome.

My studio is out at my in-laws' farmstead in the Shirland, IL area in an old converted cow barn. My family calls this building The Manger and it has an apartment with a garage. That garage is now my studio shared with my father-in-law and his printmaking/paper making/painting work. The farm is a peaceful place with lots of land, a fresh water spring with pond in the front yard, and a family garden where I grow our own salsa ingredients. I eventually want to create my own inks and dyes for my printmaking processes with the wild and garden plants at the farm.

The original owner of our farm from the early 1800s was one of the first settlers in the area and was a prominent figure in the local community. His name was Lemuel Fisk. I feel so connected with the land and nature (and disconnected from the digital technological world) when I am out at the farm that I wanted to relate my artwork to that sense of peacefulness. So Lemuette was established! When you hang my new prints on your wall, they will bring a little bit of that natural-space and peaceful feeling to your home.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
What payments do you accept?
- I accept debit and credit card payments through Etsy's Direct Checkout system only

Do you charge sales tax?
- Yes, but only for Illinois residents. Rockford, IL sales tax laws require me to charge 8.25% for all Illinois residents, even if you live in a city with lower or higher tax rate.

Do you offer discounts?
- Yes, occasionally I will post a coupon code in my shop announcement, on my Instagram page @Lemuette, on facebook.com/LemuettePrints, or coupon cards with purchase at local shows.

Don't forget your coupon codes! I can't refund missed opportunities.
Shipping
What are your processing times?
- I process your order and ship within 1-2 business days after purchase unless otherwise noted in shop announcement due to holidays or shop vacations. When block printed cards are in high demand (especially around the holidays), I may need to print your card order when it is placed so it will take 3-5 business days before I can ship your cards due to drying time needs.

Will you offer insurance on all packages, or only some?
- I include the cost of insurance in shipping charges on all orders, framed or unframed prints, to make your shipping experience peaceful and stress free.

Will you offer tracking numbers?
- Yes, to keep you in-the-know about your order, tracking numbers will be sent to you via email from Etsy once your order has been shipped. For international orders: Depending on the country from which you order from, the tracking may stop once it leaves the USA but will still show when it is delivered after it passes through customs.

How are the items packaged?
- Small prints up to 9 x 12" paper size will ship in a white stay-flat mailer. 14 x 18" paper size prints will ship flat too. Even larger prints will ship safely rolled in a 3" wide kraft brown tube and will ship Priority only. Most unframed prints are stored and shipped in archival acid-free cello sleeves. Framed prints will ship safely packed in a white box. Each listing will specify how it will ship and if an unframed print comes in a cello bag or not.

What mail providers do you use?
- I only use United States Postal Service (USPS). If ordering from outside USA, shipments will be transferred to your local mail carrier for delivery.

What shipping methods do you offer and what are their average shipping times?
- USA orders: I ship standard shipping for 9 x 12" and 14 x 18" (or smaller) prints with the option to upgrade to Priority Mail. Standard shipping rate arrives within 3-5 business days. Priority Mail rate arrives within 1-3 business days. All prints larger than 14 x 18" ship in sturdy 3" tubes. Each listing will say what options you have for shipping and the calculated shipping prices will give an estimated shipping time.
- International orders: I ship standard shipping for all items except larger prints that must ship rolled in a tube. Priority shipping is only available due to size of these tubes. International standard shipping rate arrives within 6-14 days or longer depending on country. International Priority can be very pricey but it arrives in about 6-10 days. Each listing will say what options you have for shipping and the calculated shipping prices will give an estimated shipping time frame.

Will you offer expedited shipping?
- If you have a special deadline for holiday or gift occasion, please send me a convo BEFORE purchasing so I can determine the shipping times and extra shipping costs if applicable. Or you can choose to purchase upgraded shipping options at checkout without having to contact me.

Will you ship to locations outside of the United States?
- Yes, I ship everywhere! Shipping is specifically calculated to the country you order from.

How long does it take you to respond to my convos?
- I usually respond to convos within 1-8 hours but will make sure it is no longer than 24 hours.

Will you ever offer free shipping?
- Yes, occasionally I will post a free shipping coupon code in my shop announcement, on my Instagram page @Lemuette, on facebook.com/LemuettePrints, or coupon cards with purchase at local shows

Will you ever offer free items?
- Yes I do! For every 3 items you purchase in my shop in one transaction, I will add one "Oldie but a Goodie" print in your shipment. These are fun small prints that are either artist proofs or old prints from my early printmaking days - a fun artist history!
Refunds and Exchanges
Will you accept returns, and will you reimburse buyers for return shipping costs?
- I only accept returns and will reimburse for return shipping costs if item is the wrong item than what you purchased. If return shipment is approved, I will purchase return shipping label through Etsy for buyer to download and print to send package back to me. Every item in original shipment MUST be included and returned in original packaging (including packing slip/receipt). I ONLY REFUND RETURN SHIPPING THROUGH THIS PROCESS. Download, print, tape over old shipping label on package, and bring to post office to ship - if done properly, you will not have to front any money for return shipping through this process.

What will you do if items are damaged in the mail?
- If you notice considerable damage to your purchased item after it has been processed through mail carriers, you must contact me within 3 business days after delivery date posted via tracking number for a replacement. Photo proof of damage to item and packaging may be required. Replacements due to damage cannot be requested after 3 business days after delivery date.

What will you do when items are lost in the mail?
- If you have not received your order within 20 days of shipment date (USA orders) or 40 days (international orders) due to postal error, please contact me through Etsy convo. Please make sure your shipping address is correct when checking out. I am not responsible for lost mail due to incorrect shipping addresses (e.g. you recently moved and changed addresses). I verify every USA address through USPS before shipping (I cannot verify international addresses) - I can only verify that the address you provide during checkout is correct by USPS standards, not if you've moved or used a different address than you meant. If correct address was used and you have not received your order in the above time frame, then I will file an insurance claim with U-PIC - a shipping insurance option offered through Etsy. Once they've determined outcome of claim, I can either send you another print or refund you for your entire purchase. I cannot file insurance claims for lost mail any earlier than 20/40 days after shipment date.
Additional policies and FAQs
I have smoke or pet allergies, would your items or packaging materials bother my allergies?
- No, if you have sensitive allergies you can rest assured that I do not have any pets and my family does not smoke. My home office is where my packaging materials and finished prints are stored and there are no pets or smokers there.

Why should I leave feedback for your shop?
- Because your feedback tells me that you have received your items, are happy with the items, and consider our transaction complete. It also lets other buyers know that I have great prints, good service, and love to make my buyers feel at peace with their purchase. I greatly appreciate your feedback! If you ever have an issue, please feel free to contact me directly and I will do my best to help.

Can I trust buying through Etsy?
- Yes! Here is information on being protected by Etsy's website: http://www.etsy.com/trust (Click on the Buyer tab)

I feel like I know you, do you have other Etsy shops?
- Yes! I have been selling on Etsy since 2008 and started as ThePaperButton.etsy.com. I also ventured into vintage for a while too at TPBVintage.etsy.com. Lemuette.etsy.com is now my main focus and love!

Do you sell wholesale?
- YES! If you are interested in opening a wholesale account with me to sell my handmade prints and cards in your storefront, please send me a convo and I will send you my linesheet through Etsy Wholesale.
