Announcement   ••! TEMPORARY HIATUS !••
The last couple of weeks have been pretty crazy, and it appears the next few weeks are going to be even more bonkers! I am going to finish up open orders this weekend and then focus on everything else that is on my plate at the moment. You may still contact me if you have any questions. Just please be aware I may not be able to answer convos/emails in a timely fashion! ;)
Thank you for your understanding!!

Protect your eReader, small tablet, or iPod with these custom fit soft covers/cases that are light weight and washable! I hand make each cover to order to fit your device exactly!

A new shop name is being pondered so don't be alarmed if you come back and the name is different. Something more simple, straightforward, and easier to recollect is the goal while still representing the variety of items we hope to provide.

About

I've got you covered!

In 2010, my sister and I had thoroughly fell in love with our newfound Kindle devices, but of course were disappointed with the retail cover selection. My sister, being more persistent than I in this matter, set out to find cute and functional covers, and she did. However, nothing was quite what she really wanted. Knowing she would not be able to squeeze anything out of me or mom sewing wise she was left with one last option...

In July 2010, she decided it was time to brush up on some old skills and start sewing again. Starting with a pattern from BirdifulStitches, input and pointers from me and mom, she reworked the pattern to suit our needs and preferences. Thus was born a cover with stiffer lining, elastic corners & a jean button closure. That November, NerdyPop was open for business!
This inspired me to finally get my act together and open shop as well. I had always wanted to make and sell gadget cases, purses, wallets, cuddly critters, pet items, and whatever else popped into mind so this was a good jumping-off point. I, with permission, began to make her covers as well. Being the awesome sister she is, she didn't mind walking me through the end result and all the tips and tricks she picked up along the way. I opened my shop March 2011. I ended up opting for an elastic band in place of the jean button closure and later added mini wallets & iPod cases into the mix.

I would still like to create some new items, but since I still work full time that's kind of on the back burner for now. But stayed tuned!

My preferences lean towards two opposing styles: dark & elegant v.s. bright & cutesy. I can just as easily go from subdued and grim to eye popping color and adorable critters. I never feel very comfortable in the neutral zone.

I hope you find something you like!

Thanks!

── CURRENT CONSTRUCTION TIME ──

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆

CURRENT CONSTRUCTION TIME FOR MADE TO ORDER ITEMS IS 7-14 (or up to 21, see note below) BUSINESS DAYS

••! I'M MOVING !••
I am moving January 24th! Orders placed now may have an increased construction time as I will need to spend time prepping the house before we move in (18th-21st), packing for the move (23rd), and unpacking and setting up after the move (25th-26th). I believe we are better prepared this time around, so hopefully times will not be impacted much at all. Thank you for your understanding!

────── ABOUT MY COVERS ──────

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆

•• Support and protection for your device
Firm, yet soft and comfortable to hold and pliable enough to fold back flat for ease of use.

•• Lightweight
Depending on size, material, and options; each cover only weighs in at around 2.5-5 oz. The iPod cases are often less than 1 oz!

•• Elastic corners
Secure hold while at the same time allowing for easy insertion/removal of your device. Can quickly and easily be moved aside to access ports and buttons if it happens to obstruct them. Not as easy to do with fabric corners!

•• Elastic closure
Not only does the elastic hold it closed, it also holds the cover open during use without any additional bulk for comfortable one handed reading. No hard buttons or a wayward flaps to deal with while reading either! This also means no risky magnets or Velcro that may grab and collect "things" you don't want it to.

•• Customizable
Change the pockets to suit your needs! Change the lining, elastic, or thread colors to better match your style. Alter the look of your cover to "book style." Laminating options to protect your fabric! Choose a different fabric either from my stash or an outside source. Make your cover your own!

•• Washable**
Keep your cover looking good with the ability to hand wash and/or spot clean when needed. **Some items require special care. If special care is needed it will be noted in the listing. Care information here: http://dichotomicdesign.net/care

•• I do not spray my covers with Scotch Guard or any other type of fabric protector. Due to chemical sensitivities, I leave this up to the buyer.

─────── INTERNATIONAL ───────

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆

CUSTOMS - Any customs fees/taxes imposed are the buyer’s responsibility.

SHIPPING TIMES - International shipping times vary greatly depending on destination and method (typically 1-3 weeks). Priority shipping estimates are pretty solid for most major destinations, but please be aware it may take longer for other locations. Also keep in mind that packages are sometimes held by customs for a period of time before delivery. In some cases, packages are not delivered to the address and must be picked up at your area post office. If it seems like your package is taking longer than is reasonable, I encourage you to contact your local post office to see if your package is being held.

OVERCHARGES - Any overcharges in shipping greater than $1.00 will be refunded.

BRAZIL - Packages to Brazil can take an exceptionally long time! Delivery time ranges between 1 month to 5 months. Please be prepared for a long wait! Also, packages to Brazil also appear to have a higher risk of being "lost." All packages to Brazil will be insured, but please know that I will not reimburse a package when it's claim has been denied by the insurance provider.
