About

A Grand Adventure...

Silly Badger Designs was created after too many years of waiting for the right day. The saying is true, there is no right time. You just have to go for it. I wish it hadn't taken me so long to realise that one!

I've always been one of those people who sees the world a different way and can't help but create things and dream. I'm an artist/illustrator at heart but crafting is a close second when it comes to me. I don't give myself any limits.
After a few years of bad luck and the stunning support from some amazing people in my life I decided to take my hobby and make it in to something more.
Starting with a small blog and posting artwork up on to my Twitter account. It was a slow process but confidence grew and I gained pet portrait commissions from it (something I've become known for) and from there in just a few short years here I am with Silly Badger Designs!

I love working on illustrations and coming up with new ideas for products. A big part of my creative process is coming up with things that will bring a smile to peoples faces.
There's too much darkness in the world and I like to try and up the lighter things. So you'll find a lot of happy images with positive sayings and amusing images.

But why Silly Badger?
Silly Badger is something that started way back when I was barely 16. I went on holiday and got to see wild badgers. I fell in love with them from that moment and saw kindred spirits in these gorgeous animals.
Being arty I started to draw many badgers and started playing with names. My initials are SB and after a short amount of time that turned to Silly Badger and it's what I've used ever since.
It only felt right to name my business with it too.

For more information on me and my creative process (and to get a sneak preview at what I'm currently working on) use the links to find my site, blog and instagram where I post regularly with updates on my work and just random SIlly Badger nonsense that might make you smile.

Thanks for reading!
Have a great day!

    Hard working post dog who should probably have saddle bags for post runs. He would tell you he's a hard worker but in reality he tends to sleep through most of the excitement!

Frequently asked questions

Can I track my order?

Due to shipping prices I don’t use tracked shipping on orders unless you specifically ask for it.
Tracked shipping is considerably more expensive than standard shipping but if it’s something you’d like please let me know.

Can you make a custom piece of art for me?

Yes I can! I’m more than happy to work from photos or an idea for any occasion. If this is something you’re interested in please get in touch and we can discuss your needs.

Can I get an art print of one of your greeting cards?

Yes you can. Just get in touch and let me know what you’re looking for and we can discuss sizing and price. All my work is created in house so I am able to create most designs for most of the products I stock.

Can I get combined shipping?

Combined shipping costs are automatically calculated at the checkout however if you are ordering a large amount please contact me first before making the order for a more accurate shipping costs.

Why is shipping so expensive?

I calculate the shipping costs using the weights and costs for packaging each order.
Unfortunately international orders to America and Australia for example can be more expensive due to the distance.

However, if you are ordering multiple items and the shipping seems too high or you feel you have paid too much get in touch and I can give you a more accurate shipping cost as getting combined shipping costs can be difficult with mulitple items of various sizes.

Does marking an item as gift mean it's personalized and gift wrapped?

No. When marking an order as a gift through Etsy this means that there will be no prices included in the invoice. Instead you will get a gift note if you've left a message.

Marking a greeting card as a gift with a note for example will not mean the card is printed with the note inside and sent in it's envelope.
The card will be blank and sent as normal.

If you would like a personalized card with a message please contact me for more information.

I currently do not offer gift wrapping.

Custom and personalised orders

I take custom orders for designs or customized versions of my current designs on products. Please bear in mind that the prices will be greater than the original priced product. This is due to you ordering artwork from me and it is then priced accordingly to the amount of work and the product itself.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I don't currently offer gift wrapping but I can add personal notes for free to any order. If this is something you'd like please leave me a note with your order.

If I order a pet portrait can it look different to your examples?

This is something I prefer not to do. The examples of portraits shows my own style and if you order a portrait this is the style I will create it with.
If you're wanting a portrait with a different look get in touch to discuss your needs first. If a portrait is made with a different style to my own I will need to charge more as more time will be needed for the work.
Otherwise it might be best for you to look elsewhere for another artist who has a style more to your liking.
