Frequently Asked Questions

Our FAQs will help with any unanswered questions, but if not, reach out to us at oreganodesignsdublin@gmail.com, or use the form on the Contact page.

 

DO I HAVE TO OPEN AN ACCOUNT TO PLACE AN ORDER?

No, opening an account isn't necessary, you can checkout as a guest.

 

DO YOU TAKE SPECIAL REQUESTS?

We are always happy to expand our collection! If you don't find exactly what you are looking for, please feel free to contact us outlining your requirements and we'll see what we can do.

 

HOW DO I PLACE AN ORDER?

On the product page, once you've chosen if you want a framed print, unframed print or digital download, and once you've filled in all the requested information (if ordering a personalised item), add the item to your cart. If you want to order something else, click 'Continue Shopping' otherwise you can checkout with an account or as a guest. If you need to give me any other information, click 'Add a note to your order' and I'll receive your request.

 

CAN I SEE A DRAFT OR PREVIEW BEFORE MY ITEM IS SHIPPED?

Of course! All personalised items offer a proof of the item before manufacture. We cannot, however, show a draft before an item has been purchased, unless it was a special request.

 

WHEN WILL I SEE MY DRAFT?

Draft versions will be sent by email within 1-5 working days following your order, depending on the complexity of the job. If you need it rushed please let me know.

 

I HAVEN'T RECEIVED MY DRAFT - WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Should you not receive your draft within the timescale please contact us asap, your order may not have been received correctly. Please also check your junk mail before contacting us.

 

CAN I MAKE CHANGES TO MY ORDER AFTER REVIEWING THE DRAFT?

Yes. Any changes will be made 1-2 working days later and a further draft sent by email.

 

DELAYS IN DRAFT APPROVAL

Buyers are given 3 working days to approve a draft. Should an approval not be received within this time a reminder will be sent.

 

CAN I CANCEL MY ORDER?

Orders can only be cancelled while still in the draft stage. Please contact us asap if you need to cancel your order.  

 

WHAT MATERIALS ARE USED?

Foil prints are produced on smooth 160gsm light card, I find this gives the best results. All other  prints are produced on single sheeted high quality matte 210gsm cardstock. Timeline prints are produced on 220gsm cartridge paper. Illustrations are hand drawn onto Daler Rowney 300gsm extra smooth watercolour card.

 

WHAT POSTAGE SERVICE IS USED?

I use a combination of An Post (The Irish postal service) and Nightline for shipping.

All domestic and UK orders are sent 2-3 working days after the draft is approved. Postal options vary between Standard and Registered post. This is a 1-3 working day delivery aim.
All international orders are sent by Registered Post 2-3 working days after the draft is approved. This is a 5-12 working day delivery aim, where these days may not necessarily take into account timezones.

Orders can also be collected from my home studio in Finglas, Dublin 11.

 

CAN I ORDER MORE THAN ONE ITEM?

Of course! Shipping charges are per item in most cases, however I've found it's sometimes cheaper to send multiple items individually rather than in one package as the cost escalates according to weight. Feel free to send me an email if you'd like me to check which option would be more cost effective for you!

 

I HAVEN'T RECEIVED MY ITEM - WHAT SHOULD I DO?

An item would be considered as lost if:
- Sent to an Irish address and 10 working days have passed
- Sent to an international address and 4 working weeks have passed
Standard shipped items are sent at the customer's risk as it provides no insurance or tracking information. Registered items can be found through the track and trace system and if not uncovered, will be re-sent or refunded.
If the above timescales have elapsed then please contact us and we will look further into your item delivery.
 

 

DO YOU PROVIDE FRAMES?

Yes! We use Irish made solid wood frames for all prints in sizes 23cm square, 21cm x 30cm and 30cm x 40cm. We also use the IKEA Ribba collection for prints in sizes 23cm x 50cm and 40cm x 50cm and the Lomviken collection in sizes 32cm square. Frame codes feature on each product page if you need to keep a note of them.

 

MY ITEM ARRIVED DAMAGED - WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Unfortunately packages sometimes arrive damaged due to rough handling by the shipping company. This should not happen as all items are wrapped in tissue and securely packaged in a made to measure shipping box. If your frame arrives damaged I will refund you the difference between the framed and unframed print so you can purchase a new frame. If your print is also damaged in the process I will post a replacement to you. All prints are shipped in either a sturdy hard-backed envelope or a postal tube depending on size.

 

CAN I GET A REFUND ON MY ITEM?

Due to the nature of the product, refunds will not be given on digital downloads, and if an item is personalised, prints will not be refunded. However, as mentioned above, if your print arrives damaged, we will gladly send you a replacement. Initial proofs are sent for you to approve. It is the customers responsibility to check for spelling mistakes, colour changes etc. Once the customer has approved the piece and it has been printed, the sale is final. Extra prints will not be made if a mistake is found after the event so PLEASE check the proof carefully! Please note that colours may vary due to your monitor settings, and as a result refunds cannot be issued based on the colours of prints received.
