************************************************************************
If you have never worn a clip-on bow tie, it is so easy to wear and looks like you tied it yourself.

I often make His & Hers matching Bow Tie & Hair Bow sets for occasions such as Proms, Weddings and Birthday Parties. If interested - Ask.

Below I have tried to answer the most common questions which people ask.
Each question has a "Short Answer" and a "Long Answer". If you still have a question do not hesitate to ask, I happily answer all inquiries that are sent via Etsy's Convo system.

************************************************************************
*ARE THESE BOW TIES SELF-TIE (freestyle) OR CLIP-ONS?

Short Answer:
Clip-ons.

Long Answer:
All of the ties in my listings are clip-ons but I do make ties with a strap on a custom order basis WHEN I HAVE TIME. They cost a little more because it takes longer to make them and they require more material. If you need one, ask.
************************************************************************
*WILL THE TIE I RECEIVE LOOK LIKE THE ONE IN THE PICTURE?

Short Answer:
Nearly an exact duplicate.

Long Answer:
When making items by hand there really are no exact duplicates. There will always be a slight difference somewhere but my ties will look close enough to the ones pictured that you would probably have to hold them side by side to find a difference. So if you purchase a tie which has Thor and Iron Man pictured on it, you will get a tie with Thor and Iron Man pictured on it. Not a tie with Thor's hammer and Iron Man's foot.
The small image in the center of the tie is normally made from material left over after cutting the other parts of the tie. It can vary but will always be something which will look good.
************************************************************************
*WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR TIES AND THE ONES I SEE SELLING FOR LESS?

Short Answer:
Mine are real bow ties, many of those aren't.

Long Answer:
My ties are attached by an actual bow tie clip, the same clip used on ties purchased from any big-name store. Not an alligator clip, velcro, safety pin or other inexpensive substitute which I see used on other bow ties. My ties are assembled by hand and unlike many others, consists of 8 layers of fabric. If you order a tie that has only four layers of fabric you are basically getting half of tie, so I suppose eight dollars is probably a fair price.
I do not mean to offend anyone but realistically when you take a simple bow and attach a safety pin, it does not really constitute an actual bow tie.
************************************************************************
*I SEE "ADULT", "YOUTH", "MICRO", "HAIR BOW", "BOW TIE NECKLACE" and "PET BOW TIE" LISTED AS OPTIONS. WHAT ARE THESE ITEMS?

Short Answer:
"Adult", "Youth" and "Micro" are different sizes of bow ties. "Hair Bow", "Bow Tie Necklace" and "Pet Bow Tie" are pretty much what the names imply. See the last photo above for dimensions.

Long Answer:
The "Adult" bow tie is the model shown in most of my listings, it measures 5" by 2".
The "Youth" bow tie measures 4.5" by 2.5".
The "Micro" bow tie is normally the smallest tie I make and it measures 3 5/8" by 1 5/8".
A "Hair Bow" has a 4" alligator clip on the back and measures 5" by 3" but can be made in other sizes when requested as a Custom Order.
The "Bow Tie Necklace" has a "chain" instead of a clip, is the same size as the "Adult" bow tie and connects with an easy to use magnetic clasp.
And the "Pet Bow Tie Collar" is normally the same size as the "Micro" but is on a matching collar which comes in several sizes.
Any of my over 400 ties are available in any of these models. For a visual comparison see the last photo above.
************************************************************************
*HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY ORDER TO SHIP?

Short Answer:
Click on the tab above called "Shipping and Policies".

Long Answer:
The time needed for making and packaging orders varies. During the busy part of the year, when people want orders the quickest, it takes longer because more people are placing orders.
Since I have no idea how many orders will be placed in the coming days, I can really only guess based on past trends. When I have lots of time available for making bow ties I normally get them made and on their way in three days. When orders are streaming in it can take every bit of two weeks. If the time frame is a factor for you, ask and I will give you an estimate.
All of my items are made by me, by hand after the order is placed. I work as fast as I possibly can and not getting an order out at the promised date is very rare.
************************************************************************
*HOW MUCH IS SHIPPING?

Short Answer:
$1.49 in the U.S., $6.15 plus $2.00 for each additional item for international orders.

Long Answer:
Shipping in the U.S. will be $1.49 regardless of how many ties are purchased.
If you require international shipping I cannot provide this shipping offer but I will work out a the best deal I can if you are interested in purchasing multiple ties
************************************************************************
*CAN I GET A BETTER PRICE ON INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING?

Short Answer:
Possibly, so ask.

Long Answer:
The cost of shipping one tie via International First Class is $6.16 for any destination but it can vary on the cost of additional ties. For most countries shipping a second tie costs $2.50 but a third and possibly a fourth tie can be shipped at no additional cost.
If you want to order multiple items let me know and I will try to get you the best shipping rate possible.
The cost for International Priority and International Express can vary widely depending upon the destination. There are at least 8 different rates for each and the costs included in my listings is the highest. Again, ask if you would like to have your order shipped via International Priority or International Express and I will check for the best rate.
************************************************************************
*HOW MUCH DOES PRIORITY OR EXPRESS MAIL COST?

Short Answer:
Priority: An additional $3.76. Express: An additional $21.76.

Long Answer:
Etsy listings can now include the option to upgrade to quicker shipping methods.
As is explained in the checkout process, upgrading to Priority Mail will cost an additional $3.76.
Upgrading to Express Mail will cost an additional $21.76.
These rates are exactly what I pay for shipping and are slightly less than what is charged at a Post Office branch.

Please remember that Priority and Express are delivery options, purchasing either of them does not speed up the manufacturing process. Orders must still wait their turn.
***********************************************************************
*ONCE MY ORDER IS IN THE HANDS OF THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE, HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO BE DELIVERED?

Short Answer:
It depends upon the delivery method selected and your location.

Long Answer:
(Information given here is based on past events and in no way implies that the same will be true for every situation. The U.S.P.S. offers no guarantees on delivery time and thus I cannot either as I have no control over packages after they are in the posession of the U.S.P.S.)

In the U.S. buyers can choose between First Class Mail, Priority Mail or Express Mail.
First Class will normally be delivered in three business days, sometimes two.
Priority will normally be delivered in two business days, ocassionally the next day.
Express will normally be delivered the next day but some areas require two days.

International delivery varies greatly but I will provide information about recent international orders.

***********************************************************************
*CAN I PURCHASE INSURANCE AND/OR SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION?

Short Answer:
Yes.

Long Answer:
You can purchase insurance which covers up to six bow ties for $0.80 (U.S.). Signature Confirmation will require that someone sign for your order when it is delivered and should it disappear after delivery you can see who received the package. The cost for Signature Confirmation is $2.20 (U.S). Unfortunately Etsy does not currently support the use of multiple shipping fees but i will be happy to activate a special listing which will allow you to purchase one or both of these options.

In the last few months I have sent replacements for orders which the customer had given up on only to end up receiving two orders. While I do not mind sending out the occasional replacement, I can unfortunately no longer do this unless insurance is purchased.

+++PLEASE NOTE: Before 2013 I only had one package get lost while in transit in nearly twenty years of selling online. In 2013 I had two packages go to France and vanish (but one did come back home several months later) one that was going to Singapore which made it to the Post Office ten miles from my local Post Office where it was scanned and promptly vanished. One package went to Texas where the USPS says it was delivered but the customer never saw it.
And that was not the end of the list, there were two more but I'm sure you get the picture.
Of course these incidents are a very small minority out of several hundred packages and the USPS has always been very reliable and still how I prefer to have packages sent to me.
The purchase of Insurance and/or Signature Confirmation is entirely up to the customer and I offer it primarily so it cannot be said that it was not available.
************************************************************************
* IF I NEED AN ITEM VERY QUICK, CAN THAT HAPPEN?

Short Answer:
Yes, but ask.

Long Answer:
I do rush orders on a very regular basis, when I can. I do not keep finished ties on hand as it is difficult to store large quantities of ties without them losing the proper shape. But I do make parts of ties and store them in a pressed state. Not all of the ties I offer but many. If a person wants a tie ASAP and it is one of those that are stored in a partially completed state, it is possible that it could go into the mail on the same day it is ordered. Most likely it would be on the next day or the day after that but I do the best I possibly can to help out.
Please Note: As it says above, I will do a rush order when I can. I don't move a rush request ahead of an order that was placed earlier. That's just not fair to those who plan ahead.
Also, for an additional fee orders can be sent via Priority or Express Mail.
************************************************************************
*DO YOU GIVE DISCOUNTS FOR WEDDINGS OR LARGE ORDERS?

Short Answer:
Yes, ask.

Long Answer:
I am always happy to have my ties be part of a wedding or other special occasion.
I will provide a free tie with every seven that are purchased. Any of my ties, from any of my listings, are included in this offer. If a quantity of ties is needed, just let me know and I will activate a special listing which will reflect the discount mentioned above.
************************************************************************
*WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CONTACT TIEGAME IF I HAVE A QUESTION?

Short Answer:
The "convo" system here on Etsy.

Long Answer:
I check for messages here on Etsy constantly. If I am at work I can't always take time to write a response but I always check as soon as I get home. If you send an email I will not see it until it is too late. I respond to dozens of messages every week and I have to keep them in one place to keep them straight.
So please, USE ETSY'S CONVO SYSTEM!!
************************************************************************
*DO YOU DO CUSTOM ORDERS?

Short Answer:
Yes, I do.

Long Answer:
I enjoy custom orders when I have time to make them. Sometimes the workload here at TieGame makes taking a Custom Order out of the question, at other times my job "In the Real World" does the same. If you have an idea or request, ask. If I can I will be happy to work with you and your request. However, Custom Orders do not always ship in the same time frame that a regular order would.
************************************************************************
*DO YOU MAKE ITEMS OTHER THAN BOW TIES?

Short Answer:
Yes I do.

Long Answer:
At this time I do make bow tie collars for dogs and cats as well as bow tie necklaces. Both are available in all of the designs seen in my shop. I also do pocket squares when requested.
IN THE NEAR FUTURE I plan on offering Matching slip-on shoes, vests and cummerbunds.
If interested in any of these items, ask, I am always happy to create something unique for a customer - TIME PERMITTING.
************************************************************************


Making bow ties is a hobby for me. I also have a job in the "real world" and it does come first as it is how I actually make a living.

All of my ties are assembled by hand. Not because I have to but because I prefer quality over speed. I own several sewing machines but as I said, I make ties by hand.

If you are looking for something that will be dropped in the mail a few minutes after it is ordered, you are in the wrong place. My ties are made per order which means that you get a quality handmade product. I work as fast as I humanly can but sometimes the amount of orders I receive does make meeting shipping deadlines difficult.
I rarely miss a deadline but if I do, please understand that it is most likely because I refuse to compromise on quality.

Thanks for looking,
