Whats the crack with shipping?
Orders in the UK are shipped via Royal Mail Tracked 48. They should arrive within a couple of days.
Brexit and new EU rules on tariffs and import taxes (which came in on July 1st 2021) have made a nightmare situation for sending stuff to the EU. I can send out orders to the EU through my Etsy store (as they collect the VAT) but I can't do any European orders through the website. Sorry! It's just a total mess trying to figure out what tariff codes, VAT numbers etc to add to packages and lots have ended up being returned or ended up with expensive taxes for the buyer to pay.
GERMAN PALS! I'm so sorry but due to a totally bonkers new initiative adapted by the German government surrounding international postage and packaging I can no longer send things to your lovely country. I'm sorry, it's absolutely shit.
Orders outside of the EU go via tracked airmail, and should take 6 - 10 working days.
I'm not Amazon, I'm a working artist and I do all this from my front room at home. Orders will be shipped (99% of the time) within 10 DAYS, often sooner. I have a young child outside of Black Lodge Press so please be kind when emailing about the status of your order, as I'm likely already in a dark corner having a sleep-deprived stress migraine.
Where do you get your stuff printed?
The vast majority of my prints and zines are printed by Footprint Workers Cooperative who are based in Leeds and are a bunch of fucking babes. They're run as a co-op based on radical politics and sustainable, ethical practice. All paper/card is recycled and all inks are ecologically safe.
My shirts and bags are done by the brilliant Vino Sangre based in Norwich. Screen printing by the punx for the punx. The shirts I use are Stanley Stella Organic unisex shirts. They're produced ethically and sustainably (none of that sweatshop Gildan shite!) and are certified vegan and organic. Again all inks used in printing are ecologically safe.
Can we sell yr stuff in our shop/cafe/etc?
Yeah! I do wholesale for all the prints, zines and tote bags at 40% discount. Send us an email through the Contact form.
