Most orders are processed within 2-5 business days (the time it takes to prepare, package, and drop your order off at the post office for shipping). Apparel items may require a few extra processing days.


A B O U T

All paintings, prints, & designs are produced by me out of my home studio in Marquette, Michigan. I work on each part of the print process--from creation to distribution--so you can be assured that you'll receive a quality, handcrafted item that's shipped to you with care. Prints are reproduced either from original works (with paintings, for example) or original digital designs and printed with pigment inks on either heavyweight card stock or archival matte paper (depending on item). Producing prints in this way means that you'll receive a quality print with vibrant, lasting colors on specialty matte paper. Apparel items are created from my original designs and printed on American-made products with the help of a US-based print shop, and will ship separately from other items in the shop.

About

Live the Great Life

Hello, and welcome to The Big Lake's home on Etsy!

My name is Chelsea and my mission with The Big Lake is to connect people to the places and things they love through my art, designs, and products. If you share a love for the Great Lakes region, a love for literature and pop culture, or enjoy finding new and handmade art and design, pull up a chair and stay awhile!

A few years ago, I started The Big Lake with a few watercolor paintings and prints of Michigan and the Great Lakes. At the time, my fiancé John and I were busy studying and working in grad school, and I began running my online shop as a side business to help with expenses. As time went on, I started adding new paintings, designs, and products, and was contacted by a few Michigan retail shops interested in carrying my pieces. I absolutely loved meeting people from all across the Great Lakes region and beyond who connected with my work and this special place, and decided to expand my offerings and brand.

Nearing graduation, we made the decision to move to the U.P. from the lower peninsula. I left my teaching position and put all of my creative efforts in The Big Lake while John began his professional career. Together we’ve committed to celebrating an “Up North” lifestyle through our work and mini-adventures. We absolutely adore it here in the U.P., and it is our mission to write, create, and share our Northern, outdoorsy, and Great Lakes lifestyle.

In addition to my Etsy shop, you can also find my art and products at retail locations throughout the larger Great Lakes region. If you're interested in becoming a stockist, please visit my website and fill out the wholesale inquiry + application: http://www.thebiglakemi.com

Please take a moment to look through my shop's policies for additional information, and feel free to message me with questions, feedback, or custom requests!

Thanks for stopping by!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes! I do custom orders and can also personalize some items. Please view shop policies and contact me for more info.

Wholesale availability

Yes! Select prints, cards, and products are available for wholesale retailers. Please visit my website for more information and to fill out the wholesale inquiry + application: http://www.thebiglakemi.com

Returns, Exchanges, Cancellations - More Info:

Since each item is made-to-order, I do not accept returns or exchanges unless you receive the wrong item or the item arrives damaged. Your satisfaction with your product is very important to me, so please contact me right away if there is something I can do to improve your experience or if there are any problems with your order. I'm always happy to work with customers should an issue arise, so please contact me first!

Gift wrapping and packaging

Gift wrapping and packaging is currently not available, but I am happy to include a handwritten message from you if you are sending a gift! Please leave me a message in the "Notes to Seller" box during checkout with your brief message and I'll be sure to include it with your order.

Are the prints framed?

No, these listings are for the prints only and are not framed. Display images may suggest ways to frame and display your object, but listings are for unframed prints.

Can you frame a print for me?

Sorry, but I am currently not set up to provide framing services. My prints are available in standard sizes (8x10 and 11x14) and fit into those standard size frames. Michaels, Target, Home Goods, Ikea, and similar retailers are great places to check out for affordable frames.

Where's my order?

As soon as your order ships, I will follow up with a notification of shipment. You will receive an email from Etsy with the tracking information (if available for your order). Please note that there is no tracking available on standard post items, such as individual cards and stickers, as these are mailed in an envelope with a stamp. Sometimes tracking is not available for international orders as well.

For all other items with tracking, you will be able to track your package through the carrier's website. Please keep in mind that we are not liable for stolen packages. If your tracking number shows your package as delivered but you did not receive it, contact the carrier directly to file a claim.

Do you have a website or blog?

Yes and yes! Please visit http://www.thebiglakemi.com
