See that guy up above? That’s me, Geoff Agnew, the man behind The Gentle Chortle. I’m a designer, illustrator and printmaker based in Hamilton, Ontario. The Gentle Chortle is a small design and printmaking operation specializing in screen printed products (art prints, cards, wrapping paper and so on). In addition to creating prints and products for The Gentle Chortle I also help clients with design and screen printing projects. If you’d like to discuss working together I can be reached at hello@gentlechortle.com.

If you don’t want to jam out with me, may I suggest you head over to ye olde shop and buy some sweet, sweet, hand printed goods? You won’t regret it (probably).

Shipping info and shop policies


All prints are shipped in sturdy cardboards tubes with plastic end caps. I roll prints (gently, like a baby) in kraft paper to ensure safe delivery.


All cards come with corresponding envelope. They’re packaged in a cellophane sleeve and shipped in an envelope with rigid backing to ensure safe delivery.


I accept all major credit cards via Stripe. It’s nice and painless.

Delivery details

Orders will be shipped via Canada Post within 3-5 business days of receipt of payment. Because shipping in Canada is appallingly expensive I use postal services that don’t include tracking to keep costs down for customers. If you would like delivery with tracking please contact me and I can provide an estimate for shipping that includes it.

Please ensure your mailing address is correct. The Gentle Chortle is not responsible for missing packages due to an incorrect address provided on the invoice.

In the unlikely event that a delivery fails to reach a recipient (assuming the correct address was provided), please email hello@gentlechortle.com and I will make things right.
