Shipping and Return Policy

Emily Bourke Illustration Shipping and Return Policy 


Rates for shipping are calculated at the checkout based on the weight and dimensions of the order. 
Embroidered designs and original artwork is made by Emily and shipped out from Vancouver Island. Prints are also shipped from Vancouver Island and can be purchased with embroidery and original works. 
Expected processing time for orders is 24-72 business hours (Monday to Friday, excluding holidays), and when shipped out you will be notified via email. 
  • Please keep in mind that embroidered artwork is hand-made, and as such the craftwork delivered may vary slightly from the image on the product page. Emily does her best to make sure that designs are the same each time she re-makes them, but due to the nature of being made by hand there may be some slight variations.

Local Delivery

You can get a discounted shipping rate of $5.00 CAD with local delivery! After placing your order and selecting local delivery at checkout, your order will be prepared and delivered within 48 hours Monday-Friday.

Return Shipping
After contacting us for the return, we can send you a return shipping label via email to print at your convenience. If you receive a refund, the cost of return shipping will be deducted from your refund.

Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you, may vary.

If you are not using our return label to ship an item over $75, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We don’t guarantee that we will receive your returned item.
