About IfAndsOrButtons

Sales 5,586
On Etsy since 2015

What makes me tick?

I love buttons and magnets. I first found myself around a button press while working at a charity and I was hooked. There's just something so cool about seeing something you've designed transform into a tangible and useful object right in front of you. It started with buttons, but I've moved to include magnets in my offerings (they use the same machine!).

Giving back to the community and to causes that matter to me is also something I really look forward to. I have a history of being well involved in a variety of charities and I have found making that a pillar of my little business here on Etsy to be incredibly rewarding. Most buttons and magnets contribute directly to a charity - you can find details in the individual listings or in my FAQs.

Hi there! Welcome to my little corner of the Internet.

I'm K-Rae and I'm unapologetically feminist, queer, and me. I know mental health struggles first-hand, love animals of all shapes and sizes and am a firm believer in human rights, equality, and activism.

My designs are inspired by all of the things above and more!

Germany - Verpackungsgesetz (LUCID Packaging Register)
In 2019 Germany’s Packaging Act VerpackG came into effect, imposing requirements on online retailers selling to buyers in Germany. The Packaging Act promotes recycling and reuse of packaging materials (e.g. cardboard boxes, tape, and bubble wrap).
My company Ifs, Ands, or Buttons (12472481 Canada Inc) is registered at the Packaging Register of the Stiftung Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (Foundation Central Agency Packaging Register – ZSVR) with registration number DE1233446584068. My Dual System Licensing partner for the collection, sorting & recycling of the packaging is ACTIVATE by RECLAY.
As consumer please ensure that all received packaging is disposed of in the right recycling containers, Blue for all paper & cardboard and Yellow for all plastics.

Shipping
Due to the relatively low value of the items shipped, I ship without insurance or tracking. This means that shipping is sometimes fantastically fast, and sometimes not. Shipping timeframes are not guaranteed.

Within Canada, I use letter mail. Delivery generally ranges between 2 days (Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and area) to 6 weeks (British Columbia, territories). Due to the fact that this is untracked (to keep costs down) I am unable to offer returns or replacements before 6 weeks. The packages always show up, they sometimes just take a bit longer.
For time sensitive items, I do offer two levels of tracked shipping upgrades.

For the US I use USPS First-Class Package. Delivery is normally within 1-2 weeks. I offer a tracked upgrade that guarantees within 7 days.

For other international destinations I use Light Packet Air, which for Europe should arrive in 7-14 business days. For other countries it is often longer. Australia, for example, can take up to 8 weeks. These packages have a "tracking number" but it is proof of sent only. It is not tracked and will not update. Tracked upgrades are available at additional cost.

Charities
Many of the sets benefit specific causes that are near and dear to my heart! This is my way of putting money where my mouth is and using my buttons and magnets to cat least help change things.
