About

A blend of geekery, humour and processes...

I get a buzz picking, packing and dispatching an order. There. That's my guilty secret!

I started Geek and Profane as a side business and creative outlet. My wife runs Linvitations full time (also right here on Etsy) making amazing wedding invitations and paper products, and I wanted to do something similar, but based on my own experience from 20 years in the IT industry.

All of my designs start off as a 'hook' or an idea. Those get fleshed out into proof-of-concept designs on my daily train commute, with pen and paper. Once I have a shortlist of variants, I design the finished version in industry standard design & illustration tools, iterating through several versions via a very expensive digital printer (for the best print results) until I'm happy with it (although I regularly come back weeks or months later and tinker with the designs) and put it into a short production run so I have some stock ready to dispatch immediately.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalised orders

I typically offer this only on notebooks and posters. Greetings cards are printed in batches, however I will customise greetings cards if you wish to order 50 or more of the same design.

Personalised orders (changing 1-2 words or a minor detail taking less than 5 minutes of my time) incurs a personalisation fee of £2 on top of the item and shipping costs.

Customisation (major changes, or anything taking more than 5 minutes of my time) incurs a custom design fee of £10-£25 depending on the scale of work involved.
