FAQ

Are your items handmade?

The vast majority of my items are handmade by myself. The only items I currently sell that have a manufactured component are the acrylic charms on keychains. The charms are designed by me, featuring my own art, but are produced by an independent production partner since it's not something possible for me to make on my own. 

 

Are your item available for wholesale / resale?

All items are available in limited quantity for wholesale purchase for the purposes of resale. I do not offer my item for white labeled resell or to be used in the creation of other items for resale. My items may not be rebranded. Please contact me if you're interested in placing a wholesale order.

 

Can I use your items in  my own art or the creation of my own products?

My items and art are for personal use only and may not be used for any sort of commercial purpose, including but not limited to repurposing or integrating into new item or product, without explict written permission. An example might be like using one of my stickers on an item you're being paid to customize or are customizing for resale.

 

Do you offer gift wrapping?

Yes! Gift wrapping is $3.00, you can learn more and purchase it here. Please include a gift message in the cart message box before checking out. 

 

I saw your items on Etsy, is that you or did someone steal your stuff?

I do have an Etsy shop under the name "IkaInkArt". You might even see this url on some of my packaging! If you see my items being sold anywhere else other than this Etsy shop it's likely a fake. Please let me know if so I can report them :(

 

Why are prices on this website cheaper than your Etsy?

I would love to make prices consistent across platforms, but unfortunately I would not be able to cover my expenses or recover any profit if I did. When you make a purchase here, I'm charged a simple, low transaction fee. Each purchase on Etsy results in my store being charged a listing fee, transaction fee, processing fee, order fee and shipping fee (yes, Etsy even takes 5% of any payment made for shipping items). I've had to price my items slightly higher on Etsy to cover these additional costs.

 

Why don't you offer international shipping?

I'm able to sell internationally to a limited number of countries through Etsy, as it simplifies the process of filling out the appropriate customs forms, collection and remittence of certain customs/VAT fees (when required) and offers certain buyer and seller protections in case of issues. The costs to do business and ship internationally have become increasingly more complicated and expensive. It's not something I'm able to manage and mitigate on my own as a very small independent seller at this time.
