About

Hand Lettering, Vinyl Decals, & Design Services

Hello! I'm Samantha!

I started my Etsy shop in 2010, at 20 years old, selling t-shirt bags and hand bound books.

In 2013, I started my own full-service Graphic Design company, Shanty Town Design, where I work with other creatives and small businesses on their professional image through branding, web design, and visual marketing.

In 2015, Shanty Town launched a physical product line of vinyl decals and hand-lettered pieces, that you can see in my current shop! : )

Frequently asked questions

What are your shipping options?

We ship our items on Mondays and Tuesdays. Orders placed on Tuesdays will ship the following week.

To keep the costs low for our customers, our standard shipping option is in an envelope with a stamp. USPS does NOT offering tracking for this option. If you would like tracking, please upgrade to USPS First Class Shipping, which allows us to upload your tracking information directly to Etsy.

Please make sure that your address is input correctly at checkout when placing an order, as we copy the address right from Etsy when prepping our packages. Inputting an address that is not approved by USPS standards may cause delays in your shipment.

(International Orders please refer to the separate FAQ)

Can I track my order?

PLEASE CHECK THAT YOUR ADDRESS ON FILE IS CORRECT PRIOR TO PLACING YOUR ORDER. We print addresses directly from the order, as the customer types it. If you see an error, contact us immediately to prevent returned items or delays.

To keep the cost low for our customers, our default shipping method is in an envelope with a stamp. This method does NOT come with tracking.

If you would like to track your order, please upgrade your shipping to USPS First Class Shipping.

Please understand that once we hand off your package to USPS, we rely on them to ensure the safe delivery of your item. If there is an issue, or your order is delayed, please reach out to us and we will do our best to rectify the situation.

How long does processing and shipping take?

Processing time: 3-5 business days. Usually less.

Where can I put my decal?

Your decal is suitable for: Coffee Mugs & Ceramics*, Vehicles, Electronics, Windows, Musical Instruments & Cases, Bicycles, Helmets, Sports Equipment, you name it! Basically any smooth surface.

*We recommend hand washing your vinyled coffee mug to prevent adhesive residue bleeding.
**Not Microwave Safe
***Mugs/Yeti Cups not included

Do you ship mugs?

**Our decals do NOT come with mugs.

To offer our customers the option to use our decals on any surface they choose, we do NOT ship mugs by default. If you are interested in a custom mug, created by us, please send us a message!

If you choose to place your decal on drink ware:
• hand wash your cup after each use - while washing your ceramic mug in the dishwasher won’t affect the mug itself, it may cause adhesive bleeding on your decal
• do not heat your mug in the microwave - extreme heats can cause your decal to bubble and peel
• hot liquids in your ceramic or glass mug WILL NOT affect your decal
• for plastic drink holders (tumblers) use only cold liquids - hot liquids may melt the plastic of the cup

How do I apply my decal?

Your vinyl is sandwiched between a paper backing & transfer tape.
To achieve a long lasting sticker, follow these steps:

• clean & dry surface
• peel tape & vinyl off of backing
• position your tape & vinyl on top of the surface
• place tape & vinyl (both sticky side down) on the surface
• starting from the middle & working your way out, use a card to smooth bubbles &
adhere vinyl to the surface
• gently peel back the tape at a 180º angle
• if your vinyl starts to lift, hold it down as you peel back the tape & smooth as you peel
• go over the vinyl again with a card from the middle outward to smooth & set
• if your vinyl has bubbles that you can’t work out, puncture them with a needle & smooth
