- Frequently asked questions
Who is behind the shop ?
The shop is owned and driven by me Stephanie Donsø.
I work in my home studio in Birkerød in Denmark and this is also where I send from when you purchase an item from my shop.
What do you sell?
First of all excellent gifts for friends and family having Det Gyldne Blad being the opposite of mainstream. And so I sell a selection of both handstitched one-of-a-kind (ooak) items as well as whimsical cards and art prints for both kids and adults originally painted by me. Occasionally you may also find little clay items that are ment as wall pieces to bring your picture wall some diversity.
Do you sell original drawings or paintings?
Yes, some do sneak in (so keep an eye on my shop - and my instagram account). And you are welcome to mail me and ask about originak work.
What kind of materials do you use?
Prints are made in cooperation with a professional Danish grafic & printing company. All prints and cards are printed on FSC-marked paper with the use of high quality and long lasting Epson pigments that are waterbased and more kind to our environment.
I only print on high quality non-toxic paper starting from 190 miligram.
The paper for my cards are of 300-miligram, lovely thick and easy to write on.
Cards are included recycled envelopes.
My prints and cards are packed in cellophane sleeves of OOP (oriented poly propylen, which is less harmful to the environment than the old types of plastic cellophane). Some of my cards are packed in glassine paper sleeves and I'm still looking around (or waiting) for glassine sleeves in A4 and A3 sizes.
I sign my prints and drawings on the front plus number the limited prints.
What about your dolls & brooches?
My one-of-a-kind handsewn items are made of organic and recycled vintage materials. I love when an old blouse gets a new life being sewn into a little dress for one of my small ooak dolls. When sewing and stitching my dolls and brooches I don't follow a pattern but work on them as they come along.
Both dolls and brooches are stuffed with natural non carted wool from a Danish sheep farm.
Do you offer gift wrapping?
Yes I do, just email me - also if you'd like me to include a small message and send your purchase/gift to another adress than your own.
How do I order?
Place your order in the basket, go to the 'counter' and fill in your infomation.
How can I pay?
You can pay with almost any card - Dankord, VISA, Mastercard, PayPal.
Big Cartel keeps your payment secure at all times with STRIPES (same as NETS etc)
As for me, I only use your shipping, billing adress and contact information to communicate with you about your order and to fulfill your order, nothing else.
Do you do commissions?
Yes, send an e-mail about what you have in mind so that I may see if I connect with your request and work out a price in line with how big the task is.
