About OWhatAFeeling

Sales 10,046
On Etsy since 2015

Hello fellow stationery lovers!

Welcome to O What A Feeling: Textile & Paper Goods Co.! We offer quirky and colourful products proudly designed and crafted in the United Kingdom!

Working from a studio in the historic town of Winchester, on the edge of the beautiful South Downs National Park, my designs begin with pencil sketches, pen and ink drawings, and a splash of paint.

My greeting cards, handmade notebooks and art prints feature my own hand-lettered and illustrated designs and are printed locally at an independent, family-owned print shop onto FSC-certified paper, and lovingly trimmed, scored, folded, packaged and bound in our Winchester studio. My badges are 100% made in-house and are printed, hand-pressed and assembled at the studio.

Shop members

  • Gillian Lake-Thompson

    Owner, Designer, Everything!

    Born and raised in Canada, I crossed the pond and now call the south of England home. My work is a reflection of my love of queer culture, typography & hand lettering, vintage ephemera, flora & fauna, general smut, snacks & terrible puns.

  • Peggy

    Studio Pup, Chief Barketing Officer, Snack Analyst

    Peggy is being trained up to answer emails and do the bookkeeping. She can type 900 words a minute (but unfortunately all in Dog) and I suspect she exaggerated her Excel proficiency on her CV, but she's excellent for studio morale!

Production partners

  • Sarsen Press

    Winchester, England

    Our paper goods are professionally printed by Sarsen Press, a small, independent print house here in Winchester using environmentally-friendly methods. We use FSC Certified, 100% recycled paper for all our paper goods!

  • Sarsen Press

    Winchester, England

    Sarsen Press are a wonderful local, independent print shop here in Winchester. They print all my greeting cards, notebooks and calendar.

  • UK Printing Company

    Liverpool, England

    I work with a professional printing company here in the UK to produce these deskpads.

Frequently asked questions
Do you do wholesale? Are you up for brand collaborations?

Yes! We love wholesale enquiries from shops of all shapes and sizes! Please visit our website www.owhatafeeling.com/stockists to view our wholesale catalogue and policies. Or email us directly at hello@owhatafeeling.com

I'm always up for brand collaborations and custom design enquiries from shops and businesses. Please get in touch to discuss your ideas!

Can you personalise the front of my card?

Unfortunately at this time we are not able to personalise any cards as they are professionally printed for me in advance.

Help! I've left my card-sending to the last minute! Can you post it directly to the recipient for me?

We're happy to print any message inside the card for you - just chose the personalisation option at checkout. Please let me know if you would like the card sealed in the kraft paper envelope and addressed/posted directly to the recipient, OR if you will be hand-delivering the card to the recipient (if this is the case the card and kraft envelope will be shipped inside a larger mailing envelope). Please double-check that the address is correct and make your instructions to me as clear as possible! I frequently get requests for cards with gift messages, but the buyer's name, recipient's name/address, and name inside the message are all the same, which is very confusing in terms of packaging.

My card hasn't arrived yet!

Oh no! Please check our shipping policies page for estimated shipping times. Lockdowns and staffing shortages due to the Covid-19 pandemic have resulted in serious shipping delays. Cards to international destinations (US, Canada, Australia, etc) have been taking 20+ working days to arrive and UK orders seem to be taking 5-7+ working days (and longer for more remote locations). If your items haven't arrived by the recommended time, please get in touch and I will sort things out for you! I don't want you to be unhappy!

Do you have a tracking number for my order?

No, unless you have purchased an upgraded shipping option, I ship all orders by First Class Royal Mail or Royal Mail International Standard, neither of which are tracked. Please see our shipping policy for estimated shipping times.

Can you send me my item without the cellophane packaging?

Yes, of course! We're slowly switching to 100% recycled and biodegradable packaging for all our items, but in the meantime just let me know in the "comments to seller" section at checkout!

I've changed my mind! Can I return my order for a refund?

Yes, please get in touch within 14 days of delivery. Buyer is responsible for all costs associated with returning item and item must be securely packaged so that it arrives in resalable condition. Cost of original delivery will not be refunded. Refund is conditional on condition of item upon return. I also recommend that you obtain and keep proof of postage when you return your item in case I do not receive it in a timely manner, so you can make a claim with your postal provider. Please convo me with any questions or concerns.

My item was dispatched quickly but then was either significantly delayed in the post or did not arrive at all. Should I leave a 1-star review? Will this resolve my issue faster?

O What A Feeling is not a nameless, faceless corporation. It is a one-woman show, run by me - Gillian. I post all your orders and answer all of your order enquiries and messages. I aim to have all purchases dispatched within a reasonable timeframe of receiving the order, but sometimes there are postal delays which are out of my control! This happens at the best of times, but especially in the middle of a pandemic! If you order has been significantly delayed or has not arrived, please send me a message first before leaving a mean review. I take customer satisfaction very seriously and of course will provide a replacement or full refund! Leaving a bad review will not encourage me to deal with your issues with greater speed or compassion.

When will my order be posted?

SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2021 ORDERS:
These months I will be posting orders twice a week - Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you desperately need your order posted on a different day, please upgrade your shipping to First Class Royal Mail and send me a DM requesting this and I'll be happy to oblige! Orders placed before noon (and in all likelihood before 3PM) on Tuesdays and Thursdays will be shipped on the same day.

I've ordered an item and it has already been shipped but I have changed my mind and no longer want it. Can I cancel my order and receive a refund?

If your order has not yet been shipped please message me ASAP and request a cancellation. If it has already been shipped, you will need to send it back (buyer pays return postage) and I will refund you the value of the item (not including postage as I cannot claim this back) when I receive it. I also recommend obtaining and keeping proof of postage when you return the item, as you will need this to make a claim if I do not receive it in a reasonable timeframe. Thank you for understanding.
