About thecarboncrusader

Sales 60,341
On Etsy since 2011

Life is better when you're laughing!

Hi, my name is Yvy and I am the creator behind the cape at The Carbon Crusader.
I opened my shop in 2011, after discovering my niche of creating pencils in 2010. Since then, I have gotten to serve a wide variety of amazing people, and they all seem to appreciate what I do, and how I do it.

That's because:

I offer personalization with zero censorship. I will print what you want to say, how you want to say it. I want all of my customers to feel free to express themselves honestly, and have fun creating their own products that they will treasure for years to come.

I am communicative and very friendly. I absolutely love what I do, and I love my customers. I love providing a space where people can virtually kick up their heels and find the humor we all seriously need, while also delivering a fun super professional shopping experience.

Wanna work with me? Drop me a convo. I am here to help you create your ideal order. Wholesale accounts, please feel free to contact me, I'd love to work with you.

And always, much love to all of you, I cannot wait to send you pencils!

    Owner, Maker, Enthusiast

    My name is Yvy. I also answer to "Hey you," and "Pencil Lady." I make pencils with funny and occasionally inappropriate quotes on them. When I am not doing that, I make snarky buttons and amusing greeting cards you’ll never find in a grocery store.

Returns and exchange details
Under the EU’s distance selling laws, buyers in the EU have the right to return certain products for any reason by contacting the seller within 14 days. This 14-day period will start the moment a customer receives a product. Then, after your items return to me, I refund your payment in 14 days. Custom or personalized items cannot be returned or refunded for any reason.
Payment must clear before goodies are shipped. Sometimes echecks take a long time to clear, please do not use them if you have an intense deadline.
Current processing time is 1-3 business days for non custom orders. Orders ship to Etsy addresses. Please make sure they are correct. Please add gift addresses in through Etsy, not in your cart at checkout or in Convo.


International orders are subject to additional charges for customs. ALL international packages valued at $16 and over are insured.


Domestic packages are sent with a tracking number. International orders are not traceable past their stateside exit point, but you can use the label number and speak to your post master about your package if delays occur.

We are happy to help if your items seem to be lost in the mail. We keep all receipts and records about every single package, so we can get you label numbers if needed. Please understand that failures in delivery are not our fault, as we do not hand deliver each package. Please use your correct addresses. If your items are lost, we can send a re-shipment or return payment, less shipping costs and a small fee for our items.


I ship within 3 business days, unless custom work is requested. Each order has a tracking number!


If your package is marked as "delivered" but you haven't received it, please ask any and all roommates, neighbors, and look through your home to verify your package hasn't been misplaced. On more than one occasion a customer found a package that seemed lost in their own home or building.


Sometimes postal workers scan a parcel as delivered, when it is actually still in transit. Mistakes such as these happen occasionally, and it is a good idea to give it another two or three days. If items never arrive, contact me and let me know! I am here to help you.
Additional policies and FAQs

All international orders are subject to customs fees. These fees are additional and determined by your country, and not something we can estimate or control.
