Description

Any of these retro mermaid wall plates WILL fit your fixtures, as the screws/openings are standardized in the U.S. and Canada. Several styles are shown in one listing so that you can see how they look together, so why not re-do your whole house with these coordinated styles? Shipping fees are DISCOUNTED on additional plates, saving you money when purchasing more than one!

*** NOTE- Most styles come in either STANDARD or OVERSIZE (larger) plates, which do have advantages: They are UNBREAKABLE, have more visual impact, and can hide flaws in your wall. The exact measurements of plates are in each listing.

*** Some plates must be created if they are temporarily out of stock. For changes, a format CHART can be provided, but not every style can be made into any format, so please ask about it. Custom orders can be worked out through conversations.

*** HOW TO ORDER ***
---------------------------------
1- CHECK the list above for size & other information BEFORE ordering, please. If it's important to you that your plates are all the same SIZE, order carefully.

2- CHOOSE your selection(s) from the DROP-DOWN MENU. Photos are described on menu (# 1 through #7 from left to right), and are listed in that same order. You can mark an item as a "Favorite" if you are not immediately sure about it.

3- Remember that is there is usually only ONE or two of each design in stock, even if you see them in other listings. Any more than that will need to be made (see below). If you order MORE than the list shows, the additional plates will need to be made, and the shipping date on your order will need to be adjusted (2-7 business days later). Please understand that production is dependent on weather conditions, as finishing spray is done outdoors. Spray is non-toxic once dry, but needs a day or two to harden.

4- CLICK on "Keep shopping" if you want more items. Select items and place them into your shopping cart, going back for others if needed. The back arrow will also take you back to my shop.

5- Please pay attention to the SIZE(s) of your plate(s). If you are ordering more than one individual selection, and you want them all to be the SAME size, make sure to check the SIZE INFO about each plate (above). Or, you can contact me and I can see about making additional plates in the correct size you need (please allow extra time).
-----------------------------
MISC. INFORMATION
-----------------------------
* NEED ANYTHING ELSE? Please go to "ASK A QUESTION" and I can help with any format changes, custom work, etc. I can set up a listing for you with a projected shipping date. There is a 2-7 business day wait time (sometimes longer), depending on quantity of plates needed and other factors, such as current work load, ease of production, or weather. Please understand that production is dependent on weather conditions, as finishing spray is done outdoors. Spray is non-toxic once dry, but needs a day or two to harden.

- BONUS- These plates come with MATCHING SCREWS that are hand-painted to finish out the design, sealed for durability and fitted to lay flat! Most other shops only offer plain white screws, which detract from the overall looks of the plate.

- My FUNctional art switch plates have a beautiful, thick, glass-like finish, which NEVER yellows, cracks, or gets sticky. They have a minimum of four coats of two different kinds of sealant, making them soil and moisture resistant, and very DURABLE. Each one is GUARANTEED to please, and will last for YEARS. The plates I'm using at home have lasted over twenty-five years, and still look new! To clean, use a moist cloth.

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Credit cards or payments through Pay Pal are accepted. You may send payment in the mail, but your shipment will take longer that way. It is very simple to set up a Paypal account or to send an electronic check through Paypal. If you need help with this, JUST ASK, and I will be glad to walk you through it.

If you want an item (or items) RESERVED, I will accept partial payments, much like LAYAWAY. I will set up listings for you and you can pay at your own rate! Why not replace all of your boring switch plates at home, and give your home a fabulous finished look?

When checking out, follow each step closely, to make sure your transaction has gone through. Also, please make sure the ADDRESS is correct.

THANK YOU- I appreciate your business!

Returns & exchanges

You may return an item you have purchased if necessary, and shipping costs can be refunded, depending on the situation. Refunds or credits will be issued accordingly.

Marimakings will replace any plates which are damaged DURING SHIPPING, but this should not happen, since items are carefully and professionally packed. Each switch plate has cardboard reinforcing, and the package is marked "FRAGILE" in red ink. Please let me know right away about any damages or disappointments.

If you are not pleased with an item, you may return it and trade for something else. If I have ACCURATELY filled your order, and you want to trade an item or get a refund, I ask that you assume the shipping cost, since it was not of my doing.

If there was an error on my part, such as sending the wrong item (this has never happened, but it is possible), I will send a self-addressed, stamped envelope for you to send it back. Then it will be replaced immediately with the correct plate.

Marimakings will cheerfully deal with any complaints, and I will listen to your opinions and criticisms, but please LET ME KNOW if something is wrong BEFORE leaving a review! A review is for the PUBLIC and it is not appropriate for revenge messages or for airing disappointment. Why not try my excellent CUSTOMER SERVICE by telling me how you are feeling? I will try to right any wrong if you only GIVE ME THE CHANCE. You might be pleasantly surprised!

Thanks so much for your time and business!
