What’s the story behind your name?
Chris and I met in Milan. I was living with some friends that were moving back to Chile and had to find a place to live and was also left with everything my friends had left behind, including many boxes of eggs! Chris asked me to move in with him so I arrived at his door with my bags and a basketful of eggs. Not wanting to let them go to waste, we boiled, scrambled and poached them and went on a picnic to Parco Sempione, where we decided to work together and merge our abilities in graphic and product design and celebrate our love for the natural world.
How long do custom flocks take from start to finish?
Once your order is placed, we will send through the design for your approval within a week (please check your spam folders!). Then we will get your print ready in our studio (give us a couple more days) and express ship (we’re express shipping within Australia during Covid-19, normal post for overseas) in our next batch of orders.
That’s about 1.5 to 2 weeks from start to finish.
Can I come visit your studio in 2021?
We love you all to bits but our studio remains closed for visits during Covid-19.
BUT! If you are based in Canberra and need framed prints, we are offering free contactless deliveries. We have everything available in our online shop, no secret prints hiding in the studio!
When will my order be shipped?
We print on demand. This means, we do not keep stock due to the high volume of animals on our website. Once your order comes through, we organise production and within a few days will have your print ready to go. We produce all our prints on the best quality fine art paper, we make sure the colours are perfect and pack them with love.
Can you frame my print?
We’ve decided to trial shipping our small frames (square) far and wide, in Australia. So if you have been eyeing one of our small prints for a while, now is the time to get it framed. They are white shadow box frames (the ones we used to take to markets!). They are carbon neutral and they can hang or sit on a shelf. Each framed small print is $88 +$15 for shipping. Email us and we’ll organise this for you. Free deliveries available for Canberra.
In regards to our larger prints: shipping glass and fragile items can be expensive and is likely to break. We encourage people to visit their local framer, however if you’re in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or Canberra we can recommend great framers and also ship the prints directly to them, just drop us an email!
Do you wholesale?
Yes, we do! We love seeing our work in beautiful likeminded shops throughout Australia and the world, so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details!
Why aren’t your cards wrapped in plastic?
Plastics and their byproducts are littering our cities, oceans, and waterways, and contributing to health problems in humans and animals, so we do our very best to avoid it! Plastic waste will most likely to end up in the ocean, where seabirds and other animals will confuse it for food. According to trend studies, by 2050, 99% of seabirds will have ingested plastic.
Can you design my logo or can I use your image for my brand?
We actually get this inquiry a lot, and we wish we could get involved in projects like these! However, Eggpicnic has become its own brand, so we don’t use our style or images to create logos for other brands, organisations or businesses.
Can I buy your digital images and make my own prints or use them for other purposes?
I missed out on your tee/cockatoo/jumper release. Will you be doing more?
