My name is Iris Compiet and I’m a professional artist from The Netherlands. On this webshop you can find a selection of products I have created.
Please read the following information before placing an order.
For questions about your order, a product or if you’re having a problem with the webshop, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
About the products
Everything featured in my shop is either handmade or produced in Europe. Please note that the actual product might look slightly different from what you see on your computer screen.
When you buy a product on my website you buy the item, not the copyright. When you buy an original piece of art or print you can’t reproduce it. It is against the law to copy it, reproduce it or use it for commercial purposes. Copyright on everything is © Iris Compiet, unless stated otherwise. Any infringement on this will be dealt with accordingly.
Shipping & handling
The webshop is run by me, the artist, Iris Compiet. I take great care of creating, handling and shipping everything myself. Please understand that I am a working artist and need time to create as well. For this reason, I do one post office run every week.
I aim to process and ship out orders as soon as possible. In order to be able to offer lower shipping rates I ship in bulk and will ship as soon as the minimum required of orders for shipment has been met. If you need your order before a certain time, please contact me before placing your order. Thank you for understanding
Orders within The Netherlands are sent through PostNL. Orders to other EU countries and the rest of the world are shipped through DPD. Upon request your order can be shipped using FedEx, please contact me to receive a quote. Shipping costs include postage and handling costs.
You can choose between tracked & insured (insured up to €100, if you wish to insure your parcel for a higher amount, please contact me before placing your order) and non-tracked. Standard the shipping is set to tracked & insured. You can change this at checkout. Be aware that I won’t be able to refund any lost or damaged orders if they are not sent with the tracked & insured option.
As an independent artist and small webshop owner, I can’t be held responsible for mistakes made by postal services across the globe. I do whatever is in my power to ensure your order will arrive safe and sound.
Tracking is optimal within the EU and US but sadly less accurate to other parts of the world due to the fact that local postal services in the country of destination do not always scan the barcodes to keep the tracking up to date. This is out of my control.
With insured shipping, I can get a refund from the postal services, though please note that they are allowed to deliver the package within one year after sending without refunding money. They will need proof of the damaged parcel/product, so if your package arrives damaged you will need to take pictures of it in unopened state and of the damaged contents.
Countries I ship to and shipping times
I can ship worldwide but if your country is not listed please contact me and I will see what I can do.
Orders can take a while to arrive, shipping times depend on the country you live in. It can take a while due to customs procedures at the port of arrival in your country.
Generally, the following shipping times are normal once your order has been processed:
- Netherlands: 1-3 days
- Europe: 4-8 days
- The United States and Canada: 8-21 days (depending on the size and weight of the parcel)
- Australia: 8-20 days
- Rest of the world: 1-8 weeks
Note these are estimates, in busy periods such as during the holiday seasons these shipping times may vary. Keep this in mind when ordering for a special occasion.
Double-check your address
If you do not fill in the correct address or an incomplete address your order might take longer or might not arrive at all. I am not responsible for orders lost or late due to incorrect addressing on your part. Did you spot your mistake, please contact me immediately and I will see if I can fix it.
However if I made the mistake I will resend the order at no cost to you.
Track your package
You’ve chosen for the tracked or insured option and want to know where your order is? Go to: www.deutschepost.de, use your code, country and zip code to see where your order is.
What to do when an order is returned to me?
If you are not home when your order is delivered by your postal services they’ll usually leave a notice for you to pick it up at your local post office. If you do not do this within a certain amount of time the parcel/order will be returned to me. When this happens and the parcel is back in my possession I will contact you about, you have two options, I will either refund your money for that order minus the shipping costs (this option is not available if an item is personalized, damaged or made to order) or resend it, in which case you’ll have to pay for shipping again.
Signed & sketched books
All books are signed with my name. If you wish an unsigned copy please leave a comment in the comment section upon completing your order.
It is possible to dedicate the book to someone special, however it is not possible to write any personal messages. If you wish to have the book dedicated to someone please leave the name in the comment section upon completing the order.
Resin casts and sculptures
Each resin cast is made by hand by myself, Iris Compiet using Smooth Cast 321 and is available in the following variations: grey, white or pre-primed resin. Note it is possible that there is a slight color difference between different grey casts as this is a manual process. The casts are unpainted, you can paint them yourself using paints used for things such as miniature wargaming, I myself use Vallejo. A flyer with information on how to prep your piece for paint will be added to the order. The grey and white resin versions also need a primer coat before painting, the pre-primed version is ready to be painted.
Each sculpt will have a hook attached to the back in order to be able to hang it from the wall.
Cured castings are rigid and durable. They resist moisture, moderate heat, solvents, dilute acids and can be machined, primed/painted or bonded to other surfaces. Castings can be displayed outdoors after priming and painting, however exposing them to extreme circumstances will eventually damage the piece . Unpainted castings will yellow over time – more quickly when exposed to ultra-violet light.
If you wish to order more casts please contact me before placing an order.
These casts can’t be shipped with any other items in the webshop (besides other casts), if you wish to order anything else please place a separate order.
Please note it is strictly prohibited to make copies of the resin casts for commercial or private use!
Payment and coupon codes

Invoice & receipts
An invoice/receipt will be placed in your package, if you’ve ordered something for a friend please let me know and I will leave out the invoice.
In case of pre-order items, these will be sent out as soon as they are available. If you’ve ordered any other items with your pre-order please be aware that your order will be held back until the pre-0rder item is available. If you wish your other items to arrive separately please place separate orders.
Refunds and exchanges
If by chance you’ve received the wrong item please email me with a photo of what you’ve received, your order number and details. Only claims received by email will be dealt with.
I advice to always select the tracked & insured shipping option for books or large orders, this option is standard at checkout, you can change this yourself. Unfortunately I can’t give a refund (no money back, no replacements or discounts) if you didn’t chose to have books or large orders sent via insured mail. Orders shipped with the tracked & insured option will be insured up to €100. If your order will exceed that amount please contact me for additional options before placing your order. I’m very sorry but being a small independent artist I can’t take the blame for the postal services around the globe. I’m not a big co-operation, I’m not able to pay for the accidents caused by postal services not doing their job.
In case of smaller items getting lost or damaged please contact me with your order details and I’ll see what I can do for you.
By placing your order, you agree to having read all of the terms above, and agree with them.
