Custom illustrations for everyone

As a freelance illustrator I take on all sorts of work from sculpting characters to designing logos, to creating magazine and book illustrations. When not on a paid job, I work on my own personal projects - the best of which I put up for sale as prints through my shop.

Thank you for considering purchasing from my shop. If you have any queries about the prints and cards that I offer then please don't hesitate to contact me. I can create custom designs not featured here, as well as customising most of my prints to your requirements. For designs such as the music hall posters and retro cartoons it is possible to create additional versions of the prints for invitations and greetings cards for an additional fee, on request.

Returns and exchanges
If there are any problems/defects with standard prints then a full refund will be offered. If you decide to return a print for any other reason then this is also ok but you will be responsible for the return postage fees, and any refund due to you will have the original postage fees deducted.

No refunds are offered on custom prints as the time will have been put into their creation, and due to them being personalised it is not possible to resell them to other customers. You will be emailed a test version for approval before the item is printed. This is the last chance to make any alterations. One you have replied to confirm everything is ok, then your item will be printed and shipped.
Being an individual seller with low sales volumes I am not VAT registered and the price you see is the price you pay. For standard prints I aim to dispatch within the week, so if you change your mind quickly then it may be possible to cancel the order before it is shipped. For custom orders, once you have supplied the required details (names, dates, photographs etc) then it is not possible to cancel an order as I will have begun the customisation process. It is not possible to sell custom prints featuring names, dates and images to other customers.
I aim to ship prints the same week that I receive the order, occassionally this isn't possible due to holidays but I will advise if this is the case.

Custom prints can take a little longer and should be shipped within 2 weeks, although if you have an urgent deadline (a wedding or birthday for example) then please let me know and I will do my best to expedite the process! (I have done this already for a number of tight deadlines!)

Prints are shipped out unframed in small but sturdy poster tubes, sealed at both ends. If you order multiple prints in a single order then they will all be sent in one tube and you will only be charged for one lot of shipping.

Prints are sent first class delivery within the uk so should arrive 1-2 working days after dispatch but I cannot be held responsible for Royal Mail if they decide to strike or to delay delivery for any reason.

International prints are shipped air mail and usually take around a week to arrive.

If things do go missing in the post then please allow a few days before contacting me. I should be able to arrange a replacement print if a delivery has gone astray.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you would like to stock/resell my cards and want to place a bulk order then please contact me. Substantial orders (100s of cards) will receive a substantial discount. Cards would need to be bought outright as I do not offer a sale or return service.

If you would like to feature any of my prints/cards in a gallery space then please don't hesitate to contact me for display samples and to agree commission terms.

As well as Chayground I also run another shop on etsy called Skepticool which sells science, skeptical, sci-fi and silver screen prints and cards.
