You’ve found an uncommon design on something awesome. Good work.
If you’re wondering about when your new thing should get to you, you can find estimated delivery dates on each work page, right under the ‘Add to Cart’ button.
Once you buy, you'll receive an order confirmation email, with some important details like the order number, the order summary, the total cost, and the chosen shipping address.


Your order details are sent to one of the 3rd-party printers closest to you.
The 3rd-party printers that fulfill your orders are based all around the world. The type of product you order and your shipping address affect where the product is made. Because of this, your order can sometimes come in different packages and arrive on different days.


Production times can vary depending on the product and the time of the year but are included in the estimated delivery date for your order.

Each item you order is custom-made for you by a 3rd-party printer, meaning there is no stock in a warehouse somewhere.

The estimated delivery time for your order accounts for both production time and delivery time. Production time can take longer during the busy holiday season, but rest assured that the estimated delivery date from your order confirmation is the most accurate time to expect your order.


Your order is shipped to your door. Or your office. Or wherever. It’s yours after all.
When it’s on the way, you should receive a shipping confirmation email. Shipping times vary depending on the product you choose, whether it’s shipping standard or express, and where it’s going. Remember, orders are shipped only on business days, excluding National Holidays.


If you’re waiting on an order, you can check its status over on our ‘Order Status’ page.

You get a thing you love. An independent artist gets paid. What’s not to love?
Even if you’re not 100% happy with your purchase, you can still exchange your item for a better fit or style. Or you can submit a return.
