SHIPPING INFO

TEES (shipped from the U.S.):

Domestic USA orders are shipped via postal airmail or USPS – you will be emailed the tracking number when your order ships out.

Canada & other international orders are shipped via postal airmail. Each order is assigned a shipment number, but unfortunately, there is no tracking available for international shipments, but don’t worry: postal airmail delivery success rate is over 99.5%. Please see below for estimated delivery times.

MUGS, PILLOWS, POSTERS & TOTE BAGS (shipped from both the U.S. and the E.U.):

All orders are shipped via postal airmail via different carriers. Each order is assigned a shipment number with their respective carriers. U.S. orders generally ship with USPS or FEDEX, with EU orders shipping with LATVIAN POSTAL SERVICES. Please see below for estimated delivery times.

TEES: Your shirts are custom printed just for you! In most cases, your order will be packed and shipped out within a few days to a week. Sometimes it does take longer when my suppliers are jammed, especially during holidays, so please don’t wait till the last minute to order!

If you want faster delivery, i do offer Priority Mail at checkout although it can substantially add to postage costs. Those orders also get priority printing above my regular orders.

If you live outside of the United States, your package will be shipped by postal airmail. In most countries, postal service is very quick and reliable – the slow step is usually customs clearance. Because the rate of custom clearance varies from country to country, we cannot give a definite time frame of delivery. Standard international shipping may take 2 to 8 weeks, and if your package is held for customs inspection, it may take a few weeks longer.

You can choose expedited shipping at the checkout at an additional cost for international destinations. These usually take about 1 to 2 weeks to be delivered, subject to customs delay.

Because customs clearance is outside our control, we are unable to provide time-definite delivery guarantee for both standard and expedited international shipping. also, any customs or handling fees by your countries services are absolutely dependent on your own country. Piggie Parodies is not responsible for any additional fees incurred.

If your country isn’t listed, then possibly we cannot fill your order online. BUT, please contact me via the contact page to find out if you can arrange special shipping. It may involve shipping to myself then onwards to you which will at least, double shipping costs.

Some items cannot be shipped outside of the United States because of size, weight, value or other restrictions. If you really, really want it, please contact me and i may be able to arrange an alternate shipping method.

Orders shipped to California are subject to sales tax.

Orders shipped outside of the United States may be subject to custom duties and other fees. Since these are calculated by each country upon arrival, we do not know how much they will be. You are responsible for any customs duties and fees.

Due to the extreme custom nature of these products, i generally do not accept refunds or exchanges. Defective products may be exchanged or returned for a refund. There is no restocking fee for returns of defective products – you will get the full purchase price of the item, less the shipping and handling fee.

The reason is that these are printed especially for you, there is no “stock” so what you order is what you get so please double check your size. If the error is from my side, i will of course fix the issue by either replacing the item at no cost to yourself or a full refund. BUT, f you do have a problem,

…please contact me for some solution if  possible before leaving a negative review as i genuinely do want you to be happy and i return i yearn for that 5-star review! I have over 100 reviews with virtually all at 5-star due to care and customer service and i will do my best to keep you happy.

If the problem if entirely from your side, such as incorrect mailing address or simply the wrong size/colour selected, to fix the order additional shipping charges may apply.

CLOTHING INFO

For measuring and sizing guide, see t-shirt sizing guide.
NOTE: Ladies clothing is generally on the smaller side so unless you are absolutely sure i would suggest ordering one size up. Male/Unisex sizing appears pretty standard.

The t-shirts are done by one the finest companies in World who specialise ONLY in custom digital printing for independent artists. The artwork is digitally printed (similar to home printing on paper, except special ink and machines are used) and they are also printed on high quality tees. This is the reason the tees are not sold at such a cheap price, i only use what i would wear myself. Each shirt is also checked for quality and hand packed, so you can be sure it will be in perfect condition upon arrival.

All digital printed clothing, especially those designed with darker colours, are likely to fade over time. Digital designs can be preserved very well for 1-2 years if these simple care instructions are followed.

  • T-shirts should be washed inside out and set on a gentle machine cycle in cold water.
  • To avoid any form of fading, machine drying is not recommended.
  • Lay flat to dry.
  • Dry cleaning is not recommended.

Since i am a small company, i can only have so many options… plus i believe the artwork suits some coloured tees better than others. In the future, i hope to have more options available. Tank Tops, Hoodies and V-Necks are limited to Black, Navy Blue, Red and White whereas the other items (unixes/mens tees, ladies fitted tees, youth tees and XXL+) have generally the same colour options available.

Some items cannot be shipped outside of the United States because of size, weight, value or other restrictions. If you really, really want it, please contact us and we may be able to arrange an alternate shipping method.

OTHER ITEMS INFO

That is a new service i am offering on selected items such as mugs and tote bags… hopefully more soon. But, if you want a specific item personalised just contact me, maybe i can sort for a small additional cost!

As mentioned before, tees come from the U.S. and the other items come from either the U.S. or the E.U. depending on your own location. My supplier, Printful, as based both in California (U.S.) and Latvia (E.U.) so they ship from the closest location to you. All the “other” items have tracking as standard from various carriers.

Thankfully damages via delivery are extremely rare… if you do have a damaged item, just get in touch with me and i’ll sort you out!

The posters are available in 2 sizes… 12″ x 18″ or 24″ x 36″. They are hand trimmed so they may be a mm bigger or smaller and printed on Enhanced Matte Paper Poster

Museum-quality posters made on thick, durable, matte paper.
A statement in any room. These puppies are printed on archival, acid-free paper.

GENERAL QUESTIONS

Very rarely due to the potential time they take and then working out a price as all are different, but if you are so desperate for one, just contact me.As a general rule, when i do a commission you will order via a store item and within the product description is also info you agree to which includes compliance to not use it for promotional work, resale it it ose it commercially without prior notification from myself. I still hold the rights to the piece and may use it for promotion, although i will not sell it without approval from yourself.

If you want a design to be used for future sales or promotion then the cost will increase to cover my time, compensation for potential future royalties and permission for it to be used at your discretion with full approval from myself (although some conditions that it may not be used to promote hate, violence, sale of animals or any other use i may find offensive to Piggie Parodies).

Some are, and some are from Stock photography sites where i have a license to use them. For my personal piggies, i take the photos of the piggies myself. The other elements, such as backgrounds, props and clothing, is stock photography for backgrounds or are created originally within Photoshop. Any logo are also created entirely from a blank canvas so as not t use any copyrighted or registered images without permission.

I do not! Quite simply, any clothing or additional items are added within Photoshop. I know some people dress up their Piggies, i personally don´t do that.
