Urban Prey

Urban Prey is the creative endeavor of Katrin and Mario, hailing from Vienna, Austria. We screen print our own designs – from minimalist typography to elaborate illustrations, but always with a tongue-in-cheek approach – on t-shirts, tote bags, greeting cards, moth sachets, notebooks, tea towels, underwear, and anything else that could possibly be printed on.

While we have always been interested in drawing / designing / making things, our first successful screen printing attempts in 2009 sparked the wish to take things further. Being able to turn a simple idea into a finished product, all within our tiny living space, is very rewarding – making this product available to customers worldwide while still working from our small apartment is even more fulfilling. So far we have received orders from all corners of the world, and the idea that right now someone in a different part of the earth is wearing a shirt with our design, or doing the dishes with a tea towel we printed, or carrying their groceries in one of our tote bags is just mind-boggling.

With Katrin being a wordsmith and Mario a graphic designer (and we both sharing our love for art, design, film and all sorts of creative crafts) almost all our designs are collaborations of the two of us, showing our love for horror flicks, vintage illustrations, bold colors and bad puns. We collect ideas in our sketchbooks, and when something grabs us, we develop it further, try different layouts and colors, until everything feels right. In our design process we usually build on each other’s ideas and fuel each other with crazy concepts and silly notions, and quite often the initial concept turns into something very different.

We love experimenting with different kinds of mediums, crafts (sewing and wood burning) and inks (from metallic to glow-in-the-dark); currently we are giving discharge inks a try.

Apart from selling online we also take part in local markets, where we appreciate the direct feedback and sharing our experiences with other crafters and designers. We love being a part of the very vivid crafting community here in Vienna.

Our goal is to expand our shop by constantly adding new products while refining our skills in printing and sewing. We are happy to share our work through Etsy.

Information about the exercise of the right to cancel


You have the right to cancel this contract within 14 days without giving any reason.

The cancellation period will expire after 14 days from the day on which you acquire, or a third party other than the carrier and indicated by you acquires, physical possession of the goods.

To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us (Katrin Artner, Schönbrunner Straße 277/6, 1120 Wien, Tel: +43 699 10960543, E-Mail: urbanprey [!at] gmail.com) of your decision to cancel this contract by a clear statement (e.g. an e-mail or a letter sent by post). You may use the attached model cancellation form, but it is not obligatory. If you use this option, we will communicate to you an acknowledgement of receipt of such a cancellation on a durable medium (e.g. by e-mail) without delay.

To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.


If you cancel this contract, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you chose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us).

We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied, if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you.

We will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later than 14 days from the day you return any goods supplied, or provide evidence that you have returned them.
We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement. We may withhold reimbursement until we have received the goods back or you have supplied evidence of having sent back the goods, whichever is the earliest.

You shall send back the goods or hand them over to us, without undue delay and in any event not later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate your cancellation from this contract to us. The deadline is met if you send back the goods before the period of 14 days has expired.

You will have to bear the direct cost of returning the goods.

You are only liable for any diminished value of the goods resulting from the handling other than what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.

If you wish to cancel your order, you may fill in the following model cancellation form and return it to us. We will notify you immediately once we have received your cancellation.

We provide measurements on all our garments, but in case you got the wrong size, of course we will also do exchanges.
Return shipping as well as exchange shipping is your responsibility.

If there is ANY issue with your order (not received, not what you were expecting, not happy with it, faulty item, quality issue, item not holding up in the wash as expected etc.), we kindly ask you to not leave neutral or negative feedback without contacting us first and giving us the chance to make it right.
Thank you so much!
We will ALWAYS do our best to work something out, as we want you to be absolutely satisfied with your purchase!

You can contact us through Etsy's convo system ( the big blue "contact" button here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/urbanprey ) or through email: urbanprey [!at] gmail.com
Convos and e-mails are answered within 24 hours, usually sooner.
Payment should be completed immediately. If we have not received payment within 3 days, the order will be cancelled.
International orders are always shipped via priority airmail.
☛IMPORTANT: Our shipping rates only remain affordable because we ship in bulk. This means, though, that usually we ship out orders once a week. Please be assured that we try our best to ship your order out as quickly as possible. Most orders are shipped within 2-3 business days, but please allow for up to 5 business days to receive a shipping notification (please check your spam folder!).
☛TRACKED SERVICE: Please choose at check-out if you require tracking. Your order will then ship with registered mail which requires a signature upon delivery.

~~~ TOTAL DELIVERY TIME (updated due to COVID-19)~~~
AUSTRIA: 3-5 days
GERMANY: 7-15 days
EUROPE: 10-21 days
USA: 3-6 weeks

☛IMPORTANT: Kindly note that all estimated dates are not guaranteed dates.
Please bear in mind that random customs inspections or bad weather could delay the delivery of your package several weeks (it happens very very seldom, but can happen). We regret that we have no control over that.
For international deliveries, items are only considered lost 4 weeks after shipment date (Europe) and 8 weeks after shipment date (Asia, Australia, North America and all other countries).

~~~ ADDRESS ~~~
Please make sure that the shipping address you provide at checkout is the right one. For PayPal payments, we will take the delivery address from Etsy, not the one from PayPal. If you realize you got the wrong address in Etsy, please contact us immediately.

We aim to be as eco-friendly as possible in our packaging while making sure your order reaches you safely.
Our orders either ship in a paper or cardboard envelope or in a green "plastic" bag. This plastic bag (polymailer) is 100% biodegradable according to the manufacturer, so if it ends up in a landfill, it will decompose within 18 months at the latest.
Our items are usually wrapped in recycled brown paper (kraft paper) which can be reused, recycled or composted.

If you are shipping a gift directly to the recipient, we will gladly include a message from you (printed on a lovely sticker). Please let us know in the note to seller.
By request we will also include gift-wrapping (an additional ribbon or twine along with our usual kraft paper packaging and a little tag with the name of the recipient and the name of the gift-giver).
☛IMPORTANT: When shipping a gift directly to the recipient, please note that for all shipments outside the EU we are required to fill in a small customs form with the contents and their value - unfortunately there is no way around that, and we can neither falsify this information nor just not fill in the form. Your package might be significantly delayed at customs or even returned to us.

International customers are responsible for all customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may incur at the time of delivery. These are at the discretion of your country's tax regulations and not collected by us. We have no way of calculating how much these fees would be, should they occur, and are not responsible for those charges. For any additional information please refer to your local customs agency. Returns due to customs fees will not be accepted.

Please contact us if you have any other questions or concerns before making your purchase. We are happy to help!
Additional policies and FAQs
If you wish to purchase more than the listed quantity of an item, please contact us, so we can set up a custom listing for you (if desired quantity is available).

Although we pride ourselves on our craftsmanship, there may always be slight irregularities and imperfections (as with any handmade pieces). We think this adds to the beauty and uniqueness of our work. After all, we are humans and not machines (although we sometimes wished as it would make a lot of things easier!)
Due to the nature of hand screen printing, there are minor variations on every print. No two are alike, each is unique.
Also we use natural fibres such as cotton and linen, where a certain number of slight weaving imperfections will occasionally occur. These are considered a normal part of the fabric and should not be seen as flaws or defects.

Please note that actual colors may vary slightly depending on your monitor settings.

All our items are crafted in a pet-free and smoke-free environment.

We regret but currently we are not able to do custom orders.

Our greeting cards, our small notebooks (staple binding) and our tea towels are available to wholesale customers, so if you want to sell them in your store, please contact us through e-mail (urbanprey@gmail.com) with a link to your website or name/description of your b&m store.
Thank you so much!

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy.

1. Information We Collect
To fulfill your order, you must provide us with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to us), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you are ordering. You may also choose to provide us with additional personal information (a gift message, for example), if you contact us directly.

2. Why We Need Your Information and How We Use It
We rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide our services, such as when we use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for our mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving our services. We use your information to provide the services you requested and in our legitimate interest to improve our services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. We use your information as necessary to comply with our obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

3. Information Sharing and Disclosure
We share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. We share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you our services and comply with our obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to our shop, such as delivery companies. We will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Compliance with laws. We may collect, use, retain, and share your information if we have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal processes or to government requests; (b) enforce our agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of our customers, or others.

4. Data Retention
We retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with our services and as described in our Privacy Policy. However, we may also be required to retain this information to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements. We generally keep your data for the following time period: 7 years (required by the Austrian fiscal authority).

5. Transfer of Personal Information Outside the EU
We use Google’s Gmail as our e-mail service provider. Should we need to communicate via e-mail (our e-mail address is shown below), please be aware that this may involve transferring, storing and processing information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, we may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If we are deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, we rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google is Privacy Shield certified. (For more information, please see Google’s Privacy Statement: https://policies.google.com/privacy and the website of the Privacy Shield Framework: https://www.privacyshield.gov/welcome)

6. Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. We describe these rights below:
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you by contacting us using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict our use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where we are required to store data for legal reasons) we will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) our processing of some of your information based on our legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from us after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, we will delete your personal information unless we have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
