About the Colossal Shop

Here in The Colossal Shop you’ll find fun things for creative people: well-designed, thoughtful, and surprising objects that will make you laugh, raise your eyebrows, smile, take a break, put on your thinking cap, or spark an idea—maybe all at once!

Why? For over five years we've shared art, craft, design, and other amazing artifacts of visual culture on the award-winning blog Colossal. After featuring and meeting so many talented, creative people from around the world, we opened The Colossal Shop in 2013 to help promote some of the best artists and designers around.

We've shipped tens of thousands of design objects, toys, art prints, and tools to happy customers in more than 75 countries. We've been honored to see products from The Colossal Shop featured in leading publications including National Geographic, Fast Company, Cool Material, Gizmodo, Martha Stewart, Architectural Digest, and Apartment Therapy.

Colossal World HQ occupies a small, sunny corner of Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood. Here, you’ll find us writing Colossal posts, watering the houseplants, playing with our Smart Cloud…. oh, and carefully packing and shipping each and every Colossal Shop item by hand. We love keeping your orders looking fresh, and we take great care in making every package look extra-awesome. We also love the Earth, so our packing materials and business practices are as sustainable as possible. Almost everything used to pack your order is made from recycled materials and is also recyclable.

If you have questions, please check our FAQ page or our Shipping & Return Policy.
