FAQ's & NEVER ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION OF ‘MUCH’ FOR FREQUENCY OF EMAILS THAT YOU WILL SEND YOUR SUBSCRIBERS.

Here is a secret for you.

I only started sending emails just before I relaunched my website.

Nothing annoys me more than being bombarded left and right with updates daily or even weekly, even if it is a brand I like. 

This is why I pinky promise not to do that to you!

My definition of- I won’t bother you ‘Much’ is roughly 6-10 times a year if that! (It is much more likely be less.)

It will only be to share some eye popping news or to offer you something for FREE or a DISCOUNT CODE. 

I also won’t be annoyed if you unsubscribe, but it won’t be because I am bothering you too much.

 

WHERE ARE YOU BASED-

Ballarat in Australia.

All pricing is in Australian dollars but currency conversion should be automatic. 

 

ARTWORK INFORMATION-

 

CAN I COMMISSION A PERSONAL ARTWORK?

Yes, I do take personal Commissions from time to time wether it be a canvas artwork or a plate upcycle.

Please see the COMMISSIONS section for more information.

 

WOULD YOU EVER CREATE REALLY MINIMALISTIC ARTWORKS BY COMMISSION OR FOR LICENSING?

Nope, Nada, No, Nooooooo!

I am all about the details in my personal and commissioned artwork! I don't do plain blue abstracts with a sliver of white. I just don't feel like an artwork is me if i am told exactly what i have to create and if lots and lots of details are not allowed.

 

PERSONAL COMMISSIONS-

For me art is my creative outlet so if you commission a personal piece you are trusting that I will bring to life your idea in the way I do all my personal projects- authentically, instinctually and without pin point planning. Rules and regulations and dictation inhibit my process and do not result in my best work so for personal commission and custom works in traditional form I trust that you trust my judgement. My art isn’t my art if I am told exactly what to do. I will obviously run through colour schemes, motif ideas and the like but the rest happens organically in my own time. Other artists may work differently but this is the way it works best for everyone involved and is why I am selective with taking on this type of personal work.

 

 

WHAT SORT OF DIGITAL ARTWORK DO YOU CREATE IN TERMS OF FILE SPECIFICATIONS-

I work with raster files predominantly as I would like to merge my traditional art at some point to create actual hand painted designs, therefore I have chosen to place my focus on this method.

My digital files are usually 300 DPI RGB for digital fabric printing purposes.

I work with varying file sizes for patterns but do tend to work on a larger scale basis for my personal work not small placement prints to get the most impact with the details in my artwork.

I can also create in CMYK if requested.

I also work with vector files at times but the detailed nature of my art lends itself better to raster for now.

In terms of file types I can provide the file in alternate states but lossless is preferred. 

For illustrations or requests for specific artwork- eg: scarf design or greeting card I can work with your requirements to produce a suitable file size etc.

Files are delivered by email or Google Drive file etc. on receipt of payment.

Files sent through prior will be in draft format, low resolution (if custom) for approval. 

 

I NEED A LOGO AND OR BRANDING IS THIS A SERVICE YOU OFFER?

No, sorry.

This type of design is a specialty area of which I am not accomplished nor interested in. It is usually very technical, creativity inhibiting and art for me is the opposite of that. I actually have had my own branding/business cards & logo professionally done and I can highly recommend having someone who knows and enjoys what they doing, do it for you.

 

DO YOU OFFER WHOLESALE?

Maybe, but as a great deal of my work is OOAK at this stage I would only consider it on prints and acrylic earrings etc... Please use the contact page to enquire or via email- antayjoart@gmail.com

* Please get in touch if there is an artwork that is not yet a print that you would like to wholesale as it may be possible to have one created.

 

DO YOU OFFER 'SHOE ART' BY COMMISSION?

Rarely? I may take on business collaboration requests from stylists etc for photo shoots but please note that I do not work with individuals own shoes. The materials I use to paint and varnish the boots with the detail I do may not adhere correctly to all surfaces. I have learnt the hard way and would hate for the quality of my work to be an issue if the artwork deteriorated with minimal wear and following care instructions. (As these are OOAK they do have particular care instructions that would not apply to pre printed footwear.)

If I am unable to fulfill an enquiry, I do take suggestions regarding design topics and sizing for future releases. My current hand painted shoes available for immediate purchase are listed on my website.

Pricing for custom hand painted boots is on a case by case basis but will generally be higher than prices displayed for ready to purchase pieces due to communication required and custom nature of the work. 

 

 

 PRODUCT INFORMATION-

 

CARE & SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS FOR EARRINGS & BROOCHES-

The acrylic earrings and brooches as per notes on each listing are assembled with care using non-toxic and or hypoallergenic materials wherever possible.

Each item is checked prior to postage and leaves my studio in fantastic wearable condition.

 

To care for your items once they reach you the following advices are recommended-

* Be gentle with your items. Although acrylic is durable it may not stack up if dropped or stepped on. Resin is used to adhere posts and brooch backs so generally this is very sturdy if treated well. 

* Do not shower, swim or submerge your items in water.

Although UV printing on acrylic is used it is only recommend to wipe down with a polishing cloth. Avoid contact with perfumes and creams etc to keep the colour banging!

Avoid excessive handling,  especially on OOAK hand painted acrylic pieces. These OOAK items have been prepped with gesso, painted with high quality products and sealed but constant touching of the painted design could cause discolouration.

 

****SAFETY WARNING-****
* Sleeping in them is a No, No as is letting small children play with them. These items are NOT A TOY and may contain small parts and or sharp objects. Although care has been taken to fix items well and use safety brooch backs please follow safety warnings.

 

 

WHAT SIZE AM I IN YOUR 'ARTED UP' SHOES & BOOTS?

SHOE SIZING COVERSIONS-

*Please note all sizing is approximate.

Please always reach out if you would like more information regarding sizing as i understand it is difficult to purchase online.

I have popped exact details for each shoe in the specific listing as the below details are not always consistent across all brands.

 

AU.      UK.      EU.         US.            FOOT (mm)

5.           3.        36.         5.               220

**ALSO- take extra care with sizing as your item will not be able to be swapped for another size due to limited quantity and OOAK nature.

*Please do refer to each listing as more detailed sizing information will be recorded. If in doubt please touch base!

 

CAN I SWIM IN MY SHOES & BOOTS WITH YOUR ART ON THEM?

Ummm, No.......

" Wear 'em or display 'em like a prized ornament BUT whatever you do treat 'em like the OOAK art they are! In other words: Don't be kicking walls when your BF, GF, Hubs, Wifey, Kids, Boss, Neighbour....anyone really, gives you the shits!! Also it goes without saying doesn't it!? to not be diving into pools or walking on hot coals with these babies on!! (Not safe for you or your boots/shoes.) Just be nice to them, OK!?"

 

CAN I GET YOUR ART ON MY PRODUCTS?

Yes, Yes you can.

Please see the section related to LICENSING

 

I SAW AN ARTWORK I LIKE & I WONDERED IF A PRINT WAS A POSSIBILITY. 

You never know! 

Pop an enquiry through and I will see if it is possible.

I generally do not list many prints and or have removed older prints from my website but may update these with new ones throughout the year if there is interest.

 

WILL YOUR ARTWORK LOOK LIKE IT DOES ON THIS WEBSITE?

Hopefully it looks better?

Please remember though, that colouring of prints and originals may differ slightly from the colours you may be seeing due to monitor displays being individual.

 

WHERE ARE YOUR FABRIC PANELS PRINTED-

The fabric artwork on this website is not at the current time printed in Australia. The items are however designed, cut and sewn in Australia.

The fabric printing at the current time is done in The United States and or Germany using eco- friendly water- based inks.

The wall art fabric is 55% linen, 45% cotton.

Country of origin- China

 

 

 

 COPYRIGHT-

 

CAN I STEAL YOUR DESIGNS?

Ummm, hell no!

All works are by Angela Watson. (Me! The artist behind Antayjo Art who is typing this.) 

Sale does not transfer copyright. Copying, reproducing or distributing my work in any manner without my written permission is strictly prohibited. (Not cool either!) Purchase of work (either print or original) does not transfer copyright, distribution or reproduction rights to you.

Included in this is my witty website content ....believe that!

* Full buyout is a different story but you will definitely know if this has occurred as there will be a big old contract entered into.

 

 RETURNS, POSTAGE & PACKAGING-

 

CAN I GET A REFUND OR RETURN FOR "CHANGE OF MIND" 

No. Please choose carefully with all purchases as a great deal of artwork is OOAK. If there are any issues with a purchase please see the related policy regarding REFUNDS & RETURNS as this will explain timeframes that apply to purchases and when and if returns and or refunds apply.

 

DOES POSTAGE COST A FORTUNE?

Define fortune?

I charge what it costs me in postage and handling only or at times actually less!

Commissioned art is sent either by Australia Post or Courier and is insured to the value of the work in case of damage or loss as many hours are invested into your special pieces.

*These postage amounts are usually quoted individually.

Standard website purchased items are at a set amount. The current prices can be viewed under 'SHIPPING' policy on this website and or in the header section.

At times I may have a promotion of free post over a certain dollar value for items listed on the website that can be immediately purchased.

 

DO YOU POST OUTSIDE OF AUSTRALIA?

Currently not available through auto listings on this website at this time.

(Thanks Pandemic!)

Website purchases are (by choice) restricted to Australia only.

* Commissioned art requests may however be considered and general website products may be able to be purchased via pay pal invoice on a case by case basis.

Please get in touch if you are based outside of Australia.

 

DO YOU TAKE CARE WITH YOUR PACKAGING?

Damn straight!

All parcels are packed with care & being an overthinker I generally go way, way overboard with my packaging.

Prints are mailed with a backboard and or a "do not bend" mailer to ensure they arrive flat, not trashed!

Canvas artworks are boxed and bubble wrapped to within an inch of their life.

Shoes and Boots are securely boxed. (Trust me!)

Wearable art- earrings, brooches etc are securely packaged in boxes and or satchels dependent on quantity.

All other items recieve the same treatment so if your parcel turns up in shit condition....it wasn't me! Ha, ha.

SAFETY WARNING: Please note- If packaging or contents require a warning or safety label these will be noted on the package. For example if a cello bag is used a ‘suffocation warning’ will be included. If an item is not suitable for under 3 years like a brooch then the appropriate warning will be displayed.

 

DISPLAY USE ONLY-

Some items like plates that have been upcycled may be listed as ‘display only’ as although non toxic products have been used they are not food safe. They are actually intended to be treated like a canvas or a print which means handling with care and not exposing to the elements.


 
PAYMENT OPTIONS-

DO YOU HAVE AFTERPAY OR LAY-BY?

At the current time neither are available through my website however if you use PayPal you may have the option to use PayPal pay in 4 at checkout. As a PayPal customer if you are eligible it allows payments for purchases between $30.00 and $1500.00  to be paid in four equal payments. Please refer to the PayPal website for full terms and conditions and the most up to date information.
