About wandersketch

On Etsy since 2011

sketching and wandering!

I began my shop in 2011 while working as an intern architect a few years out of college. I was in search of a creative hobby to occupy my spare time and started going to estate sales, collecting vintage tea cups and mugs. I stumbled upon some porcelain paint and used my vintage finds as a medium to hand draw illustrations onto. I started with New Orleans inspired illustrations - this was the just the beginning for Wandersketch!

Since 2011 I've continued to work on architectural sketches while developing new ideas for custom designs including custom Mr. and Mrs. mugs with your last name, personalized monogrammed initial and date mugs for weddings and anniversaries, custom caricatures of people and pets, and home illustrations! I love creating affordable gifts that are each unique and one of a kind!

All sales are final. Please remember that all custom, made to order items are my artistic interpretation. I am proud of my work and make sure each piece is detailed and of high quality! Please do not purchase if you find you may be critical of their outcome!

I use USPS 2-3 day priority mail shipping on the majority of my listings.

Additional policies and FAQs
For custom made-to-order pieces there is an average 2 week production time. Please let me know if you need something by a specific date and I'll let you know if I can accommodate you.

Depending on the item you've purchased I use porcelain, ceramic, or glass paint, all of which are baked and permanently set. Once baked, the paint won't chip away or peel off the way digital vinyl decals will over just a short amount of time. The paint will be just as hard to touch as the dish itself! To ensure a long life, please hand wash your dishes, avoid scrubbing the illustration (I use a soft dish brush and it's perfect), and do not submerge in water for long periods of time. The only thing I would avoid is using the dishwasher on a regular basis. A trip in the dishwasher won't ruin your dish but could soften the ink over long periods of time!
