Providing doses of happiness, motivation, sarcasm and general randomness

Hello, Katie here! Illustrator human, Tea lover, Hogwarts alumni and mother of cat.
Welcome to this magical shop, the place to come to if you are a fan of puns and strange animal hybrids. Our products provide daily doses of motivation, happiness, sarcasm and a sprinkling of llamas and dinosaurs. The shop was opened in 2014 but it wasn't until the birth of The Mug of Motivation in January 2015 that things really started taking off.
It has now grown from just me, sitting in my onesie drawing cats by myself, to several of us working on this (although onesies are still very much present some days!)
And we now even have our own high street shop in Alfreton, Derbyshire!
I hope you enjoy having an explore on here. We have everything from Superhero Sloths and Delightful Dodos to Courageous Crumpets and Encouraging Elephants.

Returns and exchange details
We work hard to make sure everyone who orders from us is 100% in love with their purchase and happy with the service. Please contact us within 14 days of receiving your purchase with an Etsy message if you are in anyway dissatisfied with your order and we'll do our best to resolve the problem.

Any order lost or to be returned that is over 60 days old we sadly cannot offer any form of refund or replacement.

All orders that are to be collected from the Katie Abey shop must be collected within 30 days and will not be refunded if this time passes
We do love pirate treasure, but if you don't have any of that we accept Paypal, Debit and Credit cards, and Etsy gift vouchers.
If you order multiple items from this shop, you are a legend. The computer does its whizzy techno thing and the shipping costs will automatically combine at the checkout for you. sometimes it can still be a little high when the computers have a doohickey so if your postage seems high drop us a message after ordering and we will see if we can help.

We will dispatch your order up to 5 working days of you placing it. You'll receive an email to let you know when we've dispatched your order.

UK - Please allow up to 5 working days after dispatch for your order to arrive. It's usually around 2-3 working days though.
There is an option to opt for first class if you wish, which should speed up the delivery.

If you have selected to collect from Our shop at 37 cressy road Alfreton DE557BR England United Kingdom please note you must collect the items within 30 days and that no cancelations or refunds for these orders will be allowed in any circumstance.

We recommend you opt for tracked postage for your order to ensure safe delivery if you do not opt for tracked shipping and your order sadly doesn't arrive we cannot be held responsible for its loss in transit but we will assist fully to locate and resolve any problems

International - Please allow 15 to 21 working days after dispatch for your order to arrive.

International delivery is by airmail. We wish that overseas shipping for heavier items (i.e. mugs) was cheaper, but unfortunately that's just how much it is due to the weight of items :( It'd be sweet if teleportation existed so we could zap them over to you!

Please also note for international orders there is an option to upgrade your postage to tracked and signed for to ensure safe delivery of your item. Any orders that sadly go astray we have to allow time for it to be returned to us before we can replace or refund them.

Any orders being shipped to a place of work we cannot be responsible if they are mislaid or lost after being delivered to site, as such we highly recommend always posting to your home address.

If your order sadly doesn't arrive due to an address being incorrect or incomplete then we cannot be held responsible for its loss and will be unable to offer to repost or refund it without a charge. Please make sure you check your address before ordering.

On the odd occasion, things can sometimes go wrong with shipping and this is totes out of our control - postage gremlins are real! If your order hasn't arrived in the time frame given above then please get in touch; we'll do our very best to sort it out for you :)

If you have any extra requests for shipping your parcel, please leave us a note after checkout and we'll do our best to help. Promise! Any Questions must come via etsy and not by private email as our email here isn't a maintained inbox.

You may also choose to provide us with additional personal information (for example a bespoke order) if you contact us directly.

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:
• 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 my legitimate interest to improve my 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.

• 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.
• Business transfers. If we sell or merge the business, we may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

• 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.
