Take a look around, browse the isles. We want you to have the very best experience shopping here. Custom and/or personalized orders are welcome and encouraged. So, if you see something close to what you want in our shop that almost fits your needs, and if a little tweak would get it there, send me a convo. On the other hand, if you don't see what you are looking for, and you believe I can make it for you, convo me and we can talk about how I can make it especially for you. (Keep in mind, if you like it, someone else will also, which means I'll make a generic one to put in the shop, so we can share it with the world.)

You can reach us here: http://www.etsy.com/convo_new.php?to_username=isleycreations. We prefer to hear from you via Etsy as opposed to regular email or phone. This allows us to have a record of the conversation to refer back to, if we find the need. Thanks!

Also, please keep this in mind if you have a challenge and you don't hear back from us right away. We will be in contact as soon as we are back on the computer.

So, contact us when you have questions.

Now, how I started making plaques with barbed wire on them is quite simple. I have always been very creative. I grew up on a farm in southwest Missouri with the philosophy of, "Why buy it if I can build it." I made a good deal of my own toys as a child.

When Franya shows an interest in something out of some craft magazine or other and it is something that I know I can guild, I will tell her so. I mean, I'm building our house, I ought to be able to build a simple table or some other whats it.

Franya came home from work one day and showed me a picture of faux barbed wire looking numbers to put on the front of your house. She asked me if I could make them out of barbed wire. Living near Dads farm as we do, there is a lot of old unused barbed wire laying around to be had. I told her I could.

I made a jig to bend the numbers and made a few. This started me wondering if I could make words out of this stuff too. I made another jig and figured out how to do my own cursive writing with the barbed wire. I made a few plaques for a couple of fund raisers. Franya then had this cool idea to use some aluminum wire from an old electric line to make stylized block letters. I have since figured out those block letters and started using other kinds of wire I found on Dads farm for cursive writing. (See our banner for an example.) I must say I really like how shiny the aluminum letters are, especially after they are mounted over a colored background.

And that, is the short version of how this whole process got started. I like making tops, as well. For years I made them out of used aluminum foil. One year when I was home for vacation I decided to bring back my lathe which had sat unused since I had left for the Air Force. So I brought it home and made a few. Then I met Franya, got married, and we decided to move back to where I grew up and started building a house together. Now I have a reason to use the lathe again. Yea!

Anyway, have fun shopping and dreaming up cool things you might want to see if I can build for you.

(Annoying 'legal' stuff)
Most of the items in the shop are examples. Unless I have multiples listed, yours will be created after you purchase it from our shop. I will start it as soon as the request comes in and my goal is that each order takes 7 days or less to create, pack, and ship, depending on work load, life, and other unexpected occurrences.

I made the distinction in the Welcome section that custom and/or personalized orders are welcome. Let me explain:

- Custom orders - are ones where we paint flowers or other decorative things on a plaque. As an example, if you want a plaque that says "Go Broncos" a horse painted on it, or "Happy Easter" with a chic painted on it, or other Holiday themes, or any items that could be resold IF you should choose to return such awesome art.

- Personalized orders - these involve making the piece with your name or a phrase specific to you or a family member, these are things that are not easily resold. Therefore, these items require a 25% restocking fee for returns.

We accept PayPal and Etsy direct pay as our methods of payment.

REFUNDS for customized items. (see paragraph 2 of payments section)
REFUNDS for personalized items with a 25% restocking fee.

Shipping fee refunds will be handled on a case by case basis.

**For a multiple item custom or personalized order, there may be times when a deposit is required before I start planning and building a large custom or personalized order. This requirement will be based on each individual large order.

Shipping
In most cases we ship via USPS priority mail for U.S. orders, which includes tracking only in the U. S. If the piece is larger than 12" x 24" x 3", we will make other arrangements with you. Convos are a must for custom orders of this type.

If you desire any other form of shipping or services, (I'm sure this goes without saying, however) it is your responsibility to request and pay for the services you desire.

International orders are usually shipped 1st Class Mail, this does not include tracking or insurance. If you are an international buyer, it is up to you to request and pay for any other shipping, tracking, and insurance if it is desired.

PayPal will notify you when your order is on its way, as we use the Click and Ship on PayPal for all U.S. orders. An email will be sent by PayPal to the email address on your PayPal account, once we ship the order to you.

I SHIP TO THE ADDRESS YOU PROVIDE ON THE PAYPAL INVOICE. PLEASE MAKE SURE THE ADDRESS IS CORRECT. IF IT NEEDS TO BE SHIPPED TO A DIFFERENT ADDRESS, PLEASE INCLUDE THIS INFORMATION IN THE NOTE TO SELLER SECTION WHEN YOU PLACE AN ORDER, ALSO, PLEASE CONVO ME TO BRING IT TO MY ATTENTION.

**** Also, please let me know if you would like to include and pay for insurance against loss or damage of your shipped merchandise, or if you want to request the package be signed for. Loss or damage that occurs during the shipment of the sold merchandise is your responsibility, as I pack the merchandise in such a way that abnormal handling will place it at your door whole and complete. ****

As the buyer, you get to pay for the shipping fees, including insurance against loss or damage.

As the buyer, you get to to file a claim with the post office if your product is damaged or comes up missing. In case of damaged goods, you must retain the packaging and damaged product to show the post office at the time the claim is made. There may be a 30 day waiting period to file a claim on lost goods. Let me know if additional documentation is required by the post office to file your claim.

Refunds and Exchanges
Read all shop announcements and policies BEFORE making a purchase.

**** Completing a purchase is an indication of acceptance of our shop's announcements and policies. ****

REFUNDS ARE available for customized orders (see paragraph 2 of payments section). If I can resell the item, you can get a refund for it.

REFUNDS ARE available for standard none customized or personalized items in the shop.

REFUNDS for personalized orders with a 25% restocking fee (see paragraph 2 of payments section).

When I make a specialized listing for you, you really need to read over it. A payment of the listing for a specialized item is an indication you accept the description on the listing. Information pertaining to an order that isn't in the "note to seller" section will be missing from the order. I try not read minds as it seems a bit intrusive and morally questionable. So, you are left with the "note to seller" section, this is what I refer to. If a specialized listing doesn't look right, don't click buy. If you do, you bought it the way it reads. Ask questions if it doesn't look right.

You are an adult and I realize that this won't happen, however, there are NO REFUNDS for parts of the request on a specialized order that are missing or not included. ALL desired designs, colors, writing, painting, writing in wire, other customizations or personalization must be present in the "note to seller" section. I know you understand where I'm coming from. ;o)

REFUNDS for customized items. (see paragraph 2 of payments section)
REFUNDS for personalized items with a 25% restocking fee.

Shipping fee refunds will be handled on a case by case basis.

**For a multiple item custom or personalized order, there may be times when a deposit is required before I start planning and building a large custom or personalized order. The requirement will be based on each individual large job.

Additional policies and FAQs
WRITING IN WIRE:

- I use capital letters for the first letter of a name or major word, unless you request otherwise. This is in block or cursive writing.
- For rustic plaques I mostly use barbed wire to write in cursive. I can also use re-purposed smooth fence wire, or other types of smooth wires that I find around dad's place. If you want block letters made from barbed wire, the price of the plaque will be a little higher as barbed wire in block letters is more time intensive (and painful) to make.
- For name plaques, I am re-purposing old aluminum electric line wire. This is easier to use for block letters. I prefer to use this wire for block letters as it is much more challenging to write block letters in barbed wire.
- If you want barbed wire in cursive on a bordered plaque or aluminum block letters on a rustic plaque, just ask. I will be happy to oblige. It is possible that the job will cost a little more for the labor of bending a different kind of wire in a different form. Thanks for understanding!
- There is a concern with some that the cursive lowercase "n" is a "m". Please keep in mind this is cursive. The lowercase cursive "m" has three humps, and two in the printed version. The lowercase cursive "n" has two humps, and one in the printed version. ***Refer to a Google search for block, script, and cursive letter pictures for more information.
- You get to tell me which type of "m" and "n" you want for your cursive projects in the "note to seller" section when completing the sale.

CUSTOM AND PERSONALIZED ORDERS:

- Your custom or personalized order can not be completed unless the "note to seller" section has the necessary information to complete the order. NO EXCEPTIONS for these types of orders. I really want you to get what you want, and if you don't tell me what you want, I won't be able to get it to you.
- I refer only to the "note to seller" section when creating a custom or personalized order. (See paragraph 2 of the payments section.) So what this means is, if we've done several convos about what you want. Please gather up all the fine tuning and place it in the "note to seller" section.
- All details of your order that don't make it to the "note to seller" section don't make into the finished piece. I try not read minds as it seems a bit intrusive and morally questionable. So, I only refer to the "note to seller" section. Information that doesn't make it in the "note to seller" section doesn't show up on your item.
- If the order is a standard non-customized or non-personalized item and you request no tweaks or other options it will be built using the defaults in the description and shipped as stated. It is important to read the description before purchasing a standard non-customized or non-personalized item to make sure it is what you want to buy. Thanks for your understanding.

ALL OTHER ORDERS IN THE SHOP:

You may choose from a design in our shop or have a custom design created to fit your needs. We love to work with you to make your order special and unique.

I accept custom and personalized orders (see paragraph 2 of the payments section) and am more than happy to set up a special listing just for you.

Once you have paid for a personalized order, NO REFUNDS. (see paragraph 2 of the payments section)

It is important that you read all policies in these POLICIES SECTIONs and read the SHOP ANNOUNCEMENT prior to placing an order for a custom or personalized order (see paragraph 2 of the payments section) in our shop.

I place a watermark on the pictures of the items with our Etsy store address. Please distribute the pictures as far and wide as you like.

****PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE COLORS YOU SEE MAY VARY FROM ONE COMPUTER MONITOR TO ANOTHER - NO REFUNDS FOR THE VARIATIONS.****
P. S. We mix all our colors by hand and on site. There will always be variations as we are human.
