Everything you need to know!

My shop is full of fun and delicious art created by me. I mainly sell map illustrations and postcards because I love food, travel and drawing and map illustration is the best way to combine three of my passions of life. That’s why I enjoyed creating these maps. I also created other illustration and products and you can find them in my shop as well. 


Why is it so expensive?!

This is something I get questioned about a lot so merits it’s own section. All of my orders are sent via Royal Mail tracked postage. Royal Mail is great but inevitably orders can get lost and if items are sent via standard postage, if an order gets lost there’s no way of tracking an item. It’s gone.

By using a tracked service, there are both physical and digital receipts and if an item is lost it can be either tracked down or at least there’s proof that the item was posted. Sadly tracked services do cost more money but all of my prices come directly from Royal Mail so I don’t make any profit on postage. My web developer (getting technical here) set up an api with Royal Mail that directly calculates postage prices from Royal Mail.

If you’re 100% adamant you’re happy to pay for standard postage (to naturally save costs) I can make exceptions but you must email me and I’ll use this as proof you’re happy to take a risk with standard non-tracked postage. If your standard postage item gets lost I can’t help you.

Processing Time

Generally within 5 working days although I’ll post as quickly as possible.


The big elephant in the room. All shipping prices are determined by Royal Mail which is the cheapest and most efficient way of posting items in the UK.

Orders to the UK are sent via standard mail.

EU orders are shipping signed and tracked.

Other major countries; USA, Mexico, Australia, Canada etc, orders are sent either signed or tracked.

Customs + Import Taxes

Buyers are responsible for any import taxes or customs that may apply. I will take every care your item arrives with you on time but I cannot be responsible for delays due to customs.


All products are posted with tracking and will need to be signed for on receipt.

UK postage will be sent first class recorded. International postage will be sent international tracked and signed

In the event you want to pay for cheaper non-tracked postage I cannot be responsible if your item gets lost in the post.

*Please note: The colour is represented here as accurately as possible.
However due to differences in computer screens, the colour of the actual print may vary slightly to what you see here.

If using a print company to print your digital file, it is advised that you obtain a proof copy of the artwork first, as printer settings can affect the colour outcome.

Custom + Personalised Orders

I also accept requests to change colours of backgrounds and text on all art prints. Simply contact me with details of the request, and I will do my best to accommodate.

Art Print Sized Guide

All art prints are printed in standard A sizes. See image for size guide. Custom size prints are also available on request. Please contact me with the details.

Carbon Emissions

All products, apart from postcards, are hand-printed and made myself here in the UK. Postcards are ordered in bulk quantities from my home country, Taiwan, but are ordered in large quantities to try to keep carbon emissions as low as possible. Naturally I’m in the print industry but I do try to keep my wastage to an absolute minimum.
