We just received word yesterday that we will be able to be in the First Frost Art show at the Flint Institute of Arts. We thought we would not be able to do the show this year, but some space showed up and we were glad to take it - so we'll be there. We also have added a couple holiday shows, one at Flushing High School that we have done for several years and one at Fenton High School, which we will be visiting for the first time. They are all great shows, so hope you can come and visit. For more information head to the bottom of this page under schedule. It's almost time to retire 2018's list.
We've been wanting to add to our puzzle collection for awhile, and finally this winter decided to do it. We have added Genesis, Dream Lake, Enchanted and Pizzazz in the 336 piece 12X18 size. We have also added two of our most popular pictures as Panoramic Puzzles with 672 pieces and measuring 12X36. You can take a look at these new items by clicking Puzzles.

A Note About Frames
We have checked and our frame supplier still offers better prices than anyplace else we can find. We use framesbymail.com and we encourage you to check them out. You can save a lot by just ordering frames and buying glass locally. We don't use glass because it doesn't ship well, and weighs more than plexi. Just so you know - we used to make about $2 per frame profit, but now we are making less than $1 per frame. Bottom line is that we encourage you to purchase matted goods and frame them yourself, but we will continue to make framed goods available. We want happy customers.
Note About Sizes
For the first time in 20 years of doing business, we had a question come up about the sizes that we quote on the website. Just so you all know - so there is no confusion - SIZES LISTED ON THE WEBSITE ARE FRAME SIZES. That means that if you order a 12x24 matted picture, the mat will be be 12x24 and the print will be smaller. We allow 2"-3" per side for most mattings. If you want to know the image size for a print you are considering, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get back to you with the information as soon as possible. Of course, if we're at a show it might take a bit longer. If the print is framed as well, the frame will be the same size as the mat. We thought all this was obvious, but apparently it isn't.
Orders from Overseas
We have had several orders lately from outside the US and unfortunately PayPal does not offer a way for us to handle shipping on those orders. We have now changed our settings, so that payments from outside the US will not be accepted. BUT WAIT! We still would be glad to ship Katzinn items to you wherever you may be. What we would like for you to do, is to email us at email@example.com and let us know what you are interested in purchasing. We can then calculate exact shipping and offer you some options on how to get it to you. After we are all agreed, we will send you a PayPal invoice and temporarily change the setting to allow your payment through from the invoice. I know it sounds complicated, but we just went through the process with a customer from Wales and it all went pretty smoothly. We have also suggested to PayPal that they work on a way to have calculated shipping, which would resolve this problem.
Here are some of the newest pictures that Kat has finished. If you click on the pictures you will get to their sell pages where you can order them now.
