And last but not least, you will get a mention on our website's new "Thank You" page (we understand that some people prefer to remain anonymous and therefore this is an opt-in reward).

How does the monthly Downloads work?
We will share at least 3 downloads with our patrons at the begining of every month, and these will remain available to download for the entire month. At the end of every month these will all move into the archives (which is still accessible to patrons with archive access) to make way for three new download which will once again be available for the duration of the month. We will email a link to the downloads page along with a new password to all our patrons at the beginning of the month (these details can also be accessed by our patrons at any time by clicking here). We've also created a dedicated Instagram page, Facebook Group and Pinterest board where we will share samples of all the new downloads so that you don't miss a thing.
What does the 'mention on our website' involve?
We are ever so grateful for the support of all our patrons and want to thank them for this in every way we can, and one such way would of course be to do so on our website, which is why we made a special page that is dedicated to doing just that (we do understand that some patrons might prefer to remain anonymous and therefore this is an opt-in reward).

And our patrons who supports us with $2.50 or more (and have opted-in to this reward) will also get a special mention on both our gallery & library pages where we will display 3 names (at random) along with a wee thank you message every time someone visits one of these pages. It might also include the occasional mention on one of our social media pages.

And as an extra special bonus, all patrons who supports us with $5 or more can choose to display their personal Instagram or Twitter handle instead of their name, which will also link to their Instagram or Twitter pages. Please note that these must meet certain conditions to qualify (mainly that they don't include anything that may be considered rude, upsetting, offensive, discriminatory, or in any way inappropriate to all age groups) which will be decided at our discretion.
How does 'opt-in' rewards work?
We understand that our patrons might not want every reward we offer and it is very important for us to always give them this option and therefore certain rewards will require patrons to opt-in before receiving them.
For instance, some patrons might want to remain anonymous so before we mention anyone on our thank you page we send them a wee link where they can confirm that this is something they would like. If they don't want this reward, they don't have to do anything, they will only get the reward if they opt-in.
Another example would be physical rewards (e.g. A thank you card). Patrons who support us with €2.50 or more can choose whether or not they want to receive physical rewards in the mail when they become our patron by including a postal address. If they don't include a postal address, we won't send them anything.
How often do your share rewards?
This depends on the reward. We've listed all the rewards we share regularly to give you a better idea of when you could expect to get these.

DOWNLOADS: We will always share at least 3 new downloads with you every month and we always do our best to do so on the 1st day of the month.
FREEBIES FROM OUR SHOP / DISCOUNT VOUCHERS: We'll be sharing either a freebie from our shop or a discount voucher with qualifying patrons every month in turns, so every 2 months it will be a freebie and every other month it will be discount voucher. Whichever one of these it is we'll always do our best to share them within the first 7 days of the month.
THANK YOU CARDS: We always try to mail a wee hand-written thank you card on either the same day or the day after someone starts supporting us with $2.50 or more, but in certain circumstances it can take up to 3 days. Please note that this is a once-off reward.
SNEAK PEEKS etc.: We will be sharing these whenever we can but it depends on when we get to work on new pictures and stories when we finish them. Our pictures do take quite some time to create but our goal is to be able to share at least one of them with you every month by the end of the year.
Are there any postage costs for physical rewards?
That depends on the rewards, we really wish we could pay the postage for all of them, but we simply cannot afford to do that. All 'Exclusive Prints' & 'Bonus Rewards' will be sent at our expense whereas 'Freebies from our shop' is sent at your expense. However, unless you add other items to the order, the postage cost will not be more than €1,55. Also, unless it specifically says otherwise discount vouchers only applies to the items ordered and not to postage costs.
Tell me about the exclusive (and Free) Art Print.
Once a year all patrons who supports us with $10 or more will receive an exclusive picsee art print (unless of course they have opted out of receiving rewards by post).
This year's print features our picture-poem called "Moments". The image measures 7 x 5 inches (plus an additional white border of approx. 1 inch wide) and is printed on Hahnemuhle's fine art cotton rag paper (308gms) which is a beautiful matte paper with a subtle texture and a lovely warm tone making it a perfect fit for this artwork.

The reward will work as follows - About halfway through the year* we will create an exclusive picsee art print and send a signed copy for free to all qualifying** patrons. We will do one more print run at the end of the year for any new qualifying** patrons who started supporting us after we've sent out the initial prints (or those who didn't qualify at the time).

* These are high-end art prints, which means production time and printing times can sometimes vary but our aim is to send these around June / July (or December / January for the second print run).

** To be fair towards all our longtime supporters you will need to be a $10+ patron for at least two consecutive months at the time of print to qualify for this reward.


Please note: these prints are made exclusively for our $10+ patrons and is not available for purchase.
Can patrons suggest new rewards or changes to current ones?
Yes, please do! These rewards are for our patrons you so we love to hear what they'd like. In fact, quite a few of our current rewards came to be because of suggestions and we've also made oodles of improvements because of suggestions too. Of course we won't be able to do everything but if it's practically and within our means we'll probably give it a try.
If you have a questions about any of these rewards or being our Patron please contact us via our Patreon page, Facebook Messenger or by sending a message to weemail@thepicsees.com and we'll do our best to get back to you within a day or two (and your question might even be included here).
