Perfectly imperfect handmade art

The Smudgery is a shop of unique, hand-pulled linocut prints. All of the prints from design to press are created with care by Sondra (me), a coast hopper, slow crafter, and amateur everything.

Each piece is printed with oil-based archival ink on acid-free cotton paper, materials chosen for their brilliance and durability.

If you are new to Etsy, here is a helpful link on how to make a purchase:
+ I will mail your print within 3-5 business days of receiving payment. All items are mailed from New York via USPS.

+ Domestic shipments arrive in 2-5 days via First Class Mail.

+ International shipments can take two weeks (but sometimes up to a month) to arrive, depending on your location and are shipped via First Class International. Additionally, your country may charge import duties, which are the responsibility of the buyer, so be sure to check with your country's policies.

+ Expedited: contact me with the date you would like it to arrive and we can discuss options!

All prints are packaged in a protective plastic sleeve, backed by chipboard and mailed in a stiff cardboard envelope to prevent bending or folding.

If an item arrives damaged, please notify me immediately so we can work to resolve the issue! A photo of the damage may be requested.

If you'd like me to send it directly to someone as a gift, let me know. I'm happy to include a note from you as well.
Additional policies and FAQs
Due to the nature of the hand-pulled printmaking process, each print will have slight variations in ink and placement. As every print is unique, yours will not look exactly like the image in the listing. I take care throughout the printing process to ensure that each piece I ship out is of the highest quality and character.
