About the designer
Welcome to Actualiser Art where our motto is "Wake up. Kick ass. Be Kind. Repeat."
We are a design studio based in Stellenbosch (South Africa) producing functional art products derived from our distinctive hand-drawn doodles. Materials include paper, fabric, wood, ceramics, and metal, with more to come.
The concept was developed and realised by Jan Pool, a full-time engineer and a part-time doodler, with an abounding creative streak.
From our original hand-drawn artwork, we produce greeting cards, apparel, merchandise, and decor items.
Our products are currently also available via our Facebook Shop but more outlets are in the pipeline.
Please browse and let us know what you think.

HOW LONG DOES DELIVERY TAKE?

CAN I RATHER COLLECT MY ORDER?
Yes. Clients living in and around Stellenbosch (where we are based) are welcome to collect directly from us. This way you will pay no delivery fee. Simply select “In-Store Pick-Up” during checkout. You will receive an email notifying you when your order is ready for collection (usually about 3 - 5 days after the order has been placed. Please note that orders not collected within 30 days will be forfeited.
WHAT ABOUT ITEMS PURCHASED DURING A PROMO/SALE?
Items ordered during promotional periods may take longer to be delivered, not only as a result of intense stock management but also delays experienced by the courier companies arising from high volumes and any logistical implications during this time. You can expect delivery to be delayed but of course, we will keep you posted throughout the process.
WANNA MAKE AN EXCHANGE? NO PROBLEM! HERE’S HOW:
Firstly, please ensure that you meet the return and exchange conditions before starting the process. To be eligible for a return or an exchange, the garments must be unworn, unwashed, undamaged, in their original packaging, and must be accompanied by a receipt or proof of purchase.
Items purchased during Promotions or Sales can not be refunded or exchanged. We offer an exchange or return period of 30 days from the date of purchase. Exchanges or returns after 30 days will regrettably not be considered.
If all these criteria have been met, simply send an email to [ email hidden ] to commence the process. The email should include the details of the product you are returning, preferably including a photo, as well as your order number and proof of purchase.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
If the reason for the return/exchange was our mistake, we will gladly cover the cost of transport to collect your order and either send you a new one or process a refund.
If you have had a change of heart, made an error with your size or style, courier costs/return and delivery costs are liable by you.
Once your returned item is received, inspected, and declared in perfect condition, we will prepare the new garment for shipping or process the refund. This process may take anything up to 5-7 business days to process.
CAN I RATHER EXCHANGE IT DIRECTLY WITH YOU?
Yes, if the exchange still complies with all the criteria above.

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use, or disclosure of your information, at any time, by contacting us. Please find our contact information on our Contact Us page.

Our store is hosted on Hello Pretty. They provide us with an online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases, and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.
If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.
