I usually answer messages the same day. For phone calls, I don't answer when I'm making tile but leave a message with your number and a good time to call you back. If you don't hear from me within a day, I didn't get your message or my response is in your spam filter.

The base price is listed on each individual product page, but there are discounts depending on how you pay or if it is the featured tile on the day you order it or commit to it. I can't tell you how much shipping is until ship time. A rough estimate is that shipping will usually be 5-15% of your tile order, depending on where you are located and the kind of tile you get. Tumbled marble tiles are thicker than ceramic tiles, and therefore a bit heavier.
The very first Morris tiles were hand-painted by Kate Faulkner and others at Morris, Marshall, Faulkner and Co. but whatever workability that had ended when they began producing murals. The way I make tile is very similar to the way that De Morgan made the Membland tile panel. Each tile is individually handcrafted. If you are looking for handpainted tiles, mine are not, for both my own and very Morris reasons that involve not exploiting the labor of third-world children. I detail the process in this long-winded explanation.
You can use this form to request an estimate. There are some discounts, depending on how you decide to pay for your tile. All of the discounts are outlined in How to Order Tile so I won't repeat them here.
Maybe! If it's "I want an Arthur Rackham backsplash just like your Fairy Backsplash, except it has to be 56 x 90 and oh I have photos of the mural we're trying to replace that looks nothing like your Rackham images and they have to be modified for nudity," then no. But most reasonable requests, yes. Ask me in this form. After we have the scope defined, custom and bespoke tiles cost the same as comparable as-listed tiles. Depending on the complexity, there are some nominal set-up costs which I discuss in How to Order Custom and Bespoke Tiles.
I'm sorry, I can't. I'm not a store that stocks mass-produced Morris-design tiles. I make each tile individually and I like to think that every time, I get a little better. Designers and tile collectors also make samples unworkable. You can buy a single tile from most of the product pages or you can ask me for an invoice here. If you then go on to order tile, I'll credit you the price of your sample against shipping of your tile order.
Yeah, I know. It's because I'd rather make tile. As soon as I offer a new tile, it will appear in the sitemap and on the appropriate overview page: William Morris, William De Morgan, Arts & Crafts, Pre-Raphaelite, Victorian, or Medieval. They will be announced on Social Media: Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, Twitter, and Google+ within a day or two but they won't appear in the site search until Google indexes. I no longer send email notifications because, quite frankly, they're spam.
