sandra cassidy

You can be sure I will re-tweet this for you, if we can spread the word it may work, has done with others, good luck!

Hidden Eloise

oh!! A huge thank you to both of you dear Kimmy and Sandra for this!!!

I hope we can cut their fat straw!
Hugs to both :)

I'm sending a letter. This is horrible!

Hidden Eloise

Thank you so much dear Diana! I really appreciate it :)

have sent them a shame on you note - i hope it gets resolved - i can't believe how often this type of thing happens :0(


I used to work for Paperchase and sadly they have a long history of doing this. Everyone knows that their design team scope the blogs and indie designers for "inspiration" and then completely rip-off the original.
I hate to say it but unless you have serious legal power behind you, Paperchase won't do squat. I'm sorry to say that but I really do hope at some point someone hits them where it hurts.
P.S. I'll be retweeting x


that is soooo horrible! i'll write them an email and retweet this. i hope they take these items off the shelves asap!

I'm so sorry--this must be awful. I wrote them a letter too, in the hopes that it will make some small difference. At least the original (hanging on my wall) is way cooler...clearly.

Hidden Eloise

It is so amazing to receive your support!
Thank you thank you all!!!!

Hidden Eloise

Jaqueline, thank you so much deary for your shocking yet very helpful information!
It is disturbing to hear this, but i'm not surprised at all!
When they replied back to me they were almost mocking me with their silly comments of how the 2 artworks have different "feeling" so they'll keep selling them as a result!!!
arghhhh!! how annoying!



Sorry to hear yet another company has stolen designs from an artist like this. Don't know if you saw the tweet I sent you with this link: http://youthoughtwewouldntnotice.com/blog3 also if Paperchase don't honour you as they should then they don't realise the power of the internet & handmade community. Perhaps you could write an article via Etsy about this kind of plagiarism and what to do?


PS Just watched your little animation, HILARIOUS!! x

Hidden Eloise

oh that is so awful Heidi!! Your tweet didn't reach me but thank you for mentioning this here for all of us to see!
I have seen these designs and was thinking of buying one for myself!!!
Now i know where to buy from :)

Happy you enjoyed the animation too ! :D


How horrible for you!!

I hope that you are able to squash these bad copiers and get your art back.

Best of luck to you with your fight!

Sarah P. in MI

How awful that they can do this and get away with it! That is clearly your girl that they stole and reused in their own crap. I wonder how many others it has happened to, and they never knew? I hope they get what's coming to them!


That's awful. The animation is clear proof that they plagiarized your work. Maybe enough bad advertising and word of mouth pressure to Paperchase will work. Evil.

Harriet McAlonan

Oh My God!!! That is terrible! I am soooo cross on your behalf! Off to write a letter and tweet this right now!

Hidden Eloise

Thank you guys! it is pretty obvious indeed but their representative had to spit out some silly excuses about how the feeling of the 2 artworks differs.... well DA it does...luckily!

Liz of wool boutique

I sent Paperchase an email on your behalf too. Told them that they are quickly ruining their own rep on twitter.

I retweeted to my followers for you as well.


I am so sorry for you, it is truly disgusting. Won't be shopping at paperchase anylonger and tweet as well!

Zoie @ BnBbyGilliauna

How horrible. I've wrote them a letter as well on your behalf and also tweeted about this on twitter.

I'll be heading over to facebook to make a note of it there too.


Shame on Paperchase. You have my support and I sent them an email expressing my low opinion of the company and their plagerizing. I hope you will be duely compensated for their unauthorized use of your art work.

Kaye Prince

This is disgusting! I just wrote to Paperchase and told them what they are doing is not right, that I would never buy anything from them, and that I would be spreading the word about their questionable practices. I also just put the word out on Twitter and hopefully a few of my friends will write them too.

Hang in there! I love this print (I just bought it from you about a month or so ago) and it's a shame that someone could do something like this!

Oh this is sickening. I'm so sorry it is happening to you. I hope that in spreading the word about their despicable plagiarism, your rights will be upheld in the end. I will certainly email them.

With best wishes,
Susan x
