How and when will my order will shipped?
All orders are shipped via Royal Mail, either First Class to the UK or international for Worldwide orders. All prints are sent in board backed envelopes including A3 prints. Prints are dispatched between 1 and 3 working days. If you require rushed shipping then please feel free to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll do my best to have it shipped next day but cannot guarantee this - I work full time outside of Print is Dead so it might not always be possible.
Please remember that shipping times worldwide can vary from country to country and at certain times of the year this can be slower than the Royal Mail estimations (e.g. at Christmas) - order with plenty of time, I recommend allowing 2-3 days from dispatch for Royal Mail, 1-2 weeks for Europe, 2-3 weeks for America and up to 4 weeks worldwide as worst case scenarios.
Can I track my order?
I generally send untracked depending on the value of the order, as it doesn't make it arrive any faster but adds to the shipping costs! For higher value items, packages or orders, I will always send tracked and a tracking number will be provided.
Do you design everything yourself?
Yes! Everything is designed by me, Elyssa Long. As part of the design process, I may use stock imagery, textures, fonts etc. and I purchase licenses when I use these aspects from Creative Market. I also make use of public domain vintage imagery in parts of some designs, but everything I use is only ever part of a design and never used standalone.
Do you make and print everything yourself?
Not everything! I work with different printers to produce the digital prints and products such as pocket mirrors, badges and t-shirts. Anything 'hand printed' has been produced in my own studio. I have a small block printing press which I use for my lino prints.
Print is Dead? But you're selling prints!
The name is based on the seemingly contradictory phrase 'The King is Dead! Long live the King!', so it's about the continuation of print, in a time when printed media is becoming less commonplace and about celebrating traditional printing methods. And of course, I'm selling prints inspired by the macabre so it's a little double entendre too.
How long have you been doing this?
I started Print is Dead during my MA in Graphic Design at Nottingham Trent University in October 2017, but I've been working commercially as a Graphic Designer and illustrator for almost 10 years now after originally graduating with a BA in Graphic Design from the Arts Institute at Bournemouth. Print is Dead was my opportunity to work on a brand that could encompass my own interests and artwork that I wanted to create.
Do you do custom orders or prints?
Absolutely - if you're after a different size, colour or want something created completely from scratch I am open to custom orders and will see if I can accommodate. E-mail me at email@example.com and we can take it from there.
Can I get a tattoo of your work?
I certainly can't stop you and believe in tattooing anything you like on yourself! However, it would be appreciated if you do want to get some of my work tattooed that you buy the print - after all, if you love it enough to have it permanently added to your body you must love it enough to buy it! It would also be nice if you let your tattoo artist know who I am and to attribute the original design accordingly if they're promoting it online. Finally, I'd also love to see it after you've got it done (no particular reason for this other than it being cool!)
