What if you could...

Some of life’s most beautiful moments roll before our eyes within what seems like seconds. Our first kiss. Our wedding day. Saying hello and goodbye to our loved ones. Our baby’s first smile.

There are so many firsts that seem to pass us by within an instant—moments we wish we could cherish forever, but within a flash they seem to be gone. What if you could capture some of life’s most precious moments in a significant way? If you could take that one moment and make it last forever?

My name is Kristin; wife, mother, and creator of the Purple Plum Studio.

Since becoming a mom, I’ve realized more than EVER how time flies by so quickly. If only there was a way to hold on to such sweet moments in a creative and special way.

Well, there is! What we create here is so much more than just a re-creation of a wedding photo or family portrait. We are celebrating life by capturing special moments through sentimental, artistic impressions that can remind you to never forget to cherish every moment.

Imagine your favorite wall that you pass by every day. Maybe it’s bare and needs a beautiful piece of art. Or maybe your desk or office is longing for a splash of color. With our paintings, you can take that needed splash of color and beauty to a deeper level by hanging a personalized, artistic impression of one of your favorite moments. When you look at it each day, you will be reminded through a beautiful watercolor painting to cherish the moments behind you and before you.

Our hand crafted paintings have touched the hearts of hundreds of people world wide. They’ve served as meaningful gifts for that special someone, from anniversaries to weddings to any special occasion—helping so many cherish and celebrate this beautiful life we’ve be given in a meaningful way.

Our hope is that we will continue to inspire and touch people’s lives with our watercolor impressions of special memories—making those beautiful, but fleeting moments last forever.

Frequently asked questions
Processing Times

Because our products are created just for you soon after you complete your purchase, please allow 1 to 2 weeks for your item to be completed before shipping. Timing on custom orders can vary, so for a more accurate ETA, please contact me at info@thepurpleplumstudio.com

Rush Orders

Need your order by a certain date? Though we do not currently offer shipping upgrades, we WILL do our best to ship your order out quickly for you if it is needed in a hurry. We cannot make a “definite guarantee” that your order will arrive by the deadline needed if the time frame is steep- but we will bump your order to the front of our processing.

Holiday Times

Rush ordering is not available during our busy seasons, such as Christmas time. International orders may take additional time to pass through customs, so please understand that we are not responsible for the speed in which your order travels once it leaves our hands.

Transit Times

All orders are shipped through DHL Express, and have an estimated delivery time of 3-4 business days depending on your location. This does not include the time is takes for us to process your order, and does not include weekends or holidays. The shipping times listed are “close” but not guaranteed- as a number of factors can slow down an order once it leaves our hands (such as weather, the holiday season, etc). For this reason, we are not responsible for the time in which a package travels once it has been accepted by DHL.

Shipping Delays

If your order has not arrived by the estimated delivery time, please feel free to let us know via private message. A number of factors can influence mail speeds (weather, holidays, etc), so we may ask that you wait an additional 7 days- just in case your order is caught up at a sort facility. If after 7 days your order has not arrived, we will do everything we can to work with you towards a solution (replace your order, contact the postal service to locate your order, etc).

Missing Order

If it seems that your order has been lost in the mail, we ask that you allow 7 extra days for your order to arrive, just in case it has been backed up in a sort facility. If after 7 days your tracking does not update/your order does not arrive, we will work with you toward a solution/ issue a refund/ send out a replacement order/ contact the postal service to locate your order.

Custom and Duty Fees

Some countries require a Duty Fee, Tax, or Customs Charge before an order can be delivered. These charges are somewhat random, relatively infrequent, but are 100% the buyer’s responsibility- as you are the recipient of the mail. This is not an additional shipping charge, nor are we responsible for covering your taxes and duty fees. Please be aware of the individual taxes, duty fees and customs charges for your specific country.

Tracking an Order

To track your shipped order, please visit the site below to get a more accurate viewing of your order each step of the way:

https://www.dhl.co.za/en/express.html

Type in your tracking number (you will be sent this via an Etsy email once your shipment is marked shipped) in the "Track your shipment" tab to see all the information.

Returns on NON-CUSTOM Items

Due to the nature of our products, we cannot accept returns on personalized or custom orders or digital downloads. These orders cannot be resold, therefore, we ask that you please contact us with any questions before making a purchase.

If you didn’t absolutely love your pre-made order, we are happy to refund your purchase after the item arrives back to us. Please message us via Etsy within 21 days of the items arrival. We DO NOT COVER your return shipping back to us. Once the order has arrived and we have inspected it for damage, we will issue a refund.

Digital Vat Fees

According to Etsy’s Seller Guides- Under local laws in certain countries, when you sell a digital item that is downloaded automatically to a buyer living in the EU, Norway, Russia, South Korea, Switzerland, New Zealand, or India, Etsy is required to collect and remit VAT to the relevant tax authorities based upon the rate that is charged in the country where the buyer is located. Etsy will automatically increase the amount charged to the buyer of the digital item to collect the correct amount of VAT, and we will remit the VAT to the tax authorities. You can read more about VAT Fees here: https://www.etsy.com/help/article/26439032479
