Hello Friends & Neighbors,

Thanks for looking at PIONEER HOUSE. I have a fabulous letterpress printmaking & design studio in downtown KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE. I utilize salvaged equipment, recycled papers and re-purposed inks in an historic 19th century building. Contemporary work with traditional materials... I have over 18 years of experience with letterpress and 25+ years as a graphic designer.

Hope you like what you see. Julie Belcher

I usually only post 1 or 2 of each item - "1 in stock" only means 1 in the etsy store at a time - if you have a question about getting more than the number listed please convo me - also if you are interested in an item that is listed as "sold out" please ask, I may have another. I also will be selling my old favorite Yee Haw Industries inventory that many of you have been asking for since my restructure of the studio in January, 2013.

As with all handmade work - items are different from piece to piece. My prints are hand pulled from wood blocks of image & type with hand mixed inks. Much of my typography is well over 100 years old, dinged up and scratched. The characteristics of the materials create texture, wood grain & a distressed look when printed. I subscribe to the "kiss" method of hand printing not the "bite" method. Inks kiss the paper - thus the impression is not always a super deep one - this is the correct method in order to preserve the type so it can be used for another century or 2. The process sometimes creates ghost images on the back of the paper. These are not defects, the ink has not smeared, transferred or melted in transit. I use a variety of papers - much of it is 100% post consumer recycled and I also use paper from a family run paper company that has run on green power for over a century.

Everyone's computer shows digital colors differently... so if your print varies a bit from the photo there could be several reasons for that. If you have any questions please ask me & THANKS A LOT.

Please do not steal art, that ain't nice. It's hard work to come up with original ideas but you can do it.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept PayPal & all credit cards + Etsy gift certificates via PioneerHouse.Etsy.com If you have any trouble ordering please convo me.
Shipping
DELIVERY
Please supply a secure location for delivery of your order, I do not ship packages that require a signature for delivery as that most often causes more problems than not - if you need a signature confirmation of delivery please request it in advance, it does cost extra. If your package was priority mail & marked as delivered by USPS & stolen off of your porch the insurance will be denied so please make sure your delivery address is secure - consider shipping to a business address.

PACKAGING
I make & sell many types of handmade wares - some ship in a tube, stayflat, box, cardboard flat or padded envelope, I primarily use new packaging materials to ensure safe delivery. I know shipping costs are ridonkulous but please understand for limited edition work it's worth paying a bit more to make sure it arrives safely. If you have a concern about how your order will ship please convo me before ordering. If your shipping payment is less than it actually costs me to ship it to your location it will go a more economical method that matches your payment. How it ships depends on your location & what you order. Shipping is not just the cost of a stamp - please keep that in mind.

SHIPPING PROCESS
I use the shipping address listed in your PP payment. If this is a gift please let me know so I can ship it to the correct location.

I ship 2+ times each week so it's possible your order may ship the same day I receive it, if you have a situation that needs immediate attention after you place your order & before it ships please let me know via convo.

You can check to see if your item has shipped in "Your Etsy >> Purchases." I click "shipped" when it is packed - it normally goes out that day - but if it's a weekend it may not ship until the following Monday. I do not know if you do not receive your item unless you tell me & the post office is not 100% reliable - nor is any shipping method, please let me know if you don't receive your order.

If you order a single or a few prints they ship in a tube which is the safest way to transport them without damage, simply unroll and lay flat prints upside down when they arrive, you can also gently roll the print the other way. I only ship flat for orders of 10 or more poster sized prints & there may be an additional charge.

POST OFFICE USPS
If your shipping amount was under $6 your order will most likely come via USPS FIRST CLASS - this does not get a tracking number. Normally orders over $6 will come either USPS PRIORITY MAIL & a tracking number is sent to your email, please check for it.

MULTIPLE ITEM COMBINED SHIPPING
If you see several items you want in my store, you can order them & pay, then I will combine shipping & evaluate per order and sometimes refund you via paypal based on the actual cost to your location. If you want to contact me in advance for large orders I are happy to estimate it for you. As mentioned above different types of items ship in different types of packaging - multiple item purchases are not always able to ship in the same container - sometimes it will come in 2 packages. If your shipping amount paid allows I will always try to send your order via Priority or UPS so it can be tracked.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS
I have had so many requests for international orders that I have decided to try it again. If you would like something shipped to you outside of the United States please send me a convo with what you would like to order and your address so I can research your shipping cost - I will post a custom order for you with the appropriate shipping to your country. Thanks so much. I do ask that you make an order of at least $75 - The shipping method I use is USPS Priority Mail International and it can be expensive depending on the weight of your purchase and where it is going. I have had problems with items going USPS First Class getting lost in transit so I prefer a quicker method that we both can track. You will receive the tracking number when it ships.

As always if you have a question about shipping or prefer a certain shipping method just ask me, I can figure out the shipping charges before you order.
Refunds and Exchanges
All purchases are final unless your order is damaged in transit, I do allow exchanges with prior approval. (see shipping info for protection en route to you as damages do happen). Please let me know if you are not satisfied with your purchase for any reason and I will evaluate per situation - I want you to love what you order.

Shipping insurance is recommended as no one is perfect & sometimes packages get run over by a truck on their way to you - no kidding, please ask me if you want your package insured.

If you get an incorrect order or if you receive a damaged package you must tell me within 1 week of receipt so I can correct the situation. After that it is considered a final sale.
Additional policies and FAQs
APPAREL SIZING
I use these descriptors for tee shirt fit:
ADULT - These are regular cut adult shirts that are not fitted in the waist or shoulders.
GIRLY - These are a more fitted shirt style with a tapered waist & narrower shoulders.
KIDS - These will be better described in each item, sometimes I have infant (6, 12, 18 month) toddler (2T, 3T, 4T) youth (XS, S, M).
SKIRTS - see description for actual measurements for S, M, L
