Frequently asked questions

Returns and Refunds

If there’s a problem with your order, please give me a shout

I do refund / replace items, but ask for the item(s) to be returned to me in the same condition and same packaging method as I have sent it to you. Once I have received the item(s) back here at my studio, I will arrange the refund/replacement for you!

Custom Orders

I no longer work on custom portraits and wall art, but I can take on one or two clients per year for custom designed prints for fabric, depending on my current work levels. I enjoy working with small businesses on repeat and placement prints for yardage and kitchen textiles, so please message me at to chat about your project ideas.

I would also love to hear any ideas you might have for new things you’d love to see in my shop, so please drop me a message on here or head over to my Instagram @byalicottrell

Wholesale Availability

I do offer my products to wholesale customers and stock a number of shops throughout the UK. I am currently updating my catalogue to include lots of new items heading into the shop soon.
If you’d like to see my price list and terms for wholesale orders for my current collections, please give me a shout, and include your email address!

Local Pickup

I sometimes offer a local pickup service from my studio in Norwich City Centre.
Lots of my products are priced to include the cost of delivery, so please give me a shout if you’d like to find out my next scheduled local pickup date and to get a quote for your order. I can then create a custom listing for you with all the details on.

I can’t always offer this service during my busiest times of the year, but I try my best!

Gift wrapping and packaging

I am busy working on some lovely new designs BTS for my own gift wrap so I can offer this as an extra service.
I’d love to hear if you are interested in your gifts being wrapped and sent directly to the giftee, and hopefully I can offer this service soon!

Can you send my order directly to someone as a gift?

I can definitely send your items directly to your friends / family as a gift.
At the checkout there is an option to tick the box to let me know this is a gift. Ticking this box means your order will go out exactly the same as usual, but I make sure not to include any paperwork that includes the cost etc.

You can also add a gift message at checkout. If you leave your message, I then hand write it on a postcard and include it with the order.

If you’d like me to include a greetings card alongside your gift, please make sure you buy one of my cards on the same order, and in the gift message section, please add ‘write in card’ before your message and I’ll hand write and seal your card to go in with your order.

Can you send a greetings card directly to my friend/family?

I love hand writing your fun messages into your cards and posting them straight out to your loved ones for you!

Just add ‘write in card’ followed by the exact message you’d like written in your card in the add gift message section at the checkout

Where can I see what new things you’re working on?

The best place to find out what’s new and coming soon, is by joining my mailing list!
I offer lots of great preorder deals on new stuff, discounts and giveaways to my loyal followers.

You can join by heading to my website and signing up.

Also, check out my instagram @byalicottrell to keep up to date with what’s happening :)

UK shipping info

All orders are sent using Royal Mail 2nd class post as standard.
You can upgrade to first class for a small extra fee at checkout.

I am currently posting twice a week - usually on a Tuesday and Thursday to try and limit my time at the post office due to covid. Cut off for orders is 10am, any orders after 10am on these days will go out in the next post run.

Unfortunately I cannot guarantee posting times. The dispatch times are rough guidelines, so please make sure you place your order within plenty of time if you have a deadline.

International shipping info

All international orders are sent using Royal Mail International Standard posting service. Please note, this is NOT a tracked service!
There is the option to upgrade to a tracked service at checkout for an extra fee.

Unfortunately in 2020, international shipping prices dramatically increased, particularly for small parcels.
If you’d like a tailored shipping quote, please contact me before you place your order, and I can double check that I am charging you the correct amount.

Please be aware that the shipping times given at checkout are a guideline, and some orders can take significantly longer, particularly with customs hold ups. Some orders can take up to 6 weeks to arrive, so please make sure to order in plenty of time! :)
