Note from shop owner I have made the very hard decision to close down this shop. The prices of everything needed to run the shop and create decals has become too costly at the lower rates I want to charge. I do not want to continue passing on more and more prices to the buyer just to funnel it to the ever increasing prices of vinyl, supplies, Etsy fees, shipping rates, taxes, etc. After all those, my profit margins have become too slim to continue and have it be worth my time to actually do all the work it takes to run the shop like making the decals, packing orders, ordering supplies, accounting, taxes, answering messages, etc. I've tried to hold out as long as I could but I'm actually losing money on some orders which I can't sustain. I appreciate the over 4,000 wonderful people that have ordered from me over the last year and a half. It has been a blast! But all good things must come to an end, hopefully not as bad as the GoT finale!! If you have ordered from me in the past, you should have other ways to contact me but I will be checking this shops messages for the next few months before closing it down completely Thank you all so very much for all your support!

Frequently asked questions

I have an issue with my order

Please contact me directly if you have ANY problems with your order but please don't be rude. It is against my shop policy to be rude. Life's too short and I will not respond to rudeness directed at me. Please don't let me find out about your issue in a review. Once a bad review is posted, there’s nothing more I can do.

I don’t have a tracking number

I send all orders via Etsy Shipping labels that have their internal tracking numbers via Pitney Bowes. Please note that is NOT a USPS tracking number. If you would like to purchase a USPS tracking number I offer it as an upgrade option during checkout. The benefit of a USPS Tracking number is I send it as a “package” which is a different, more robust system than standard letters. Also if there is any issue, USPS will investigate with one of their tracking numbers. Most orders arrive in 2-4 business days but some can take up to 3 weeks during busier times, holidays and ongoing issues even with tracking.

My Etsy shipping label order says it was delivered but I don’t see it

If an Etsy tracking number says the item has been delivered but you did not receive it. 1) Check the address is correct. 2) Check with neighbors, especially with community mailboxes or in apartment complexes. 3) I have seen some items marked as delivered that show up in the next few days. Etsy’s estimated delivery estimates are very rough and not usually accurate, especially during the holiday season. While orders usually arrive in 2-4 business days, it is common for it to take up to 3 weeks. I have even had orders take 8 weeks. Please be patient but message me directly if you haven’t gotten your order after 3 weeks as by that time they have usually found their way to you or been returned to me.

The USPS tracking number for my order shows it was delivered but I don’t have it

If your order includes a USPS tracking number and it shows delivered but you didn’t receive it, please call USPS directly at 1-800-275-8777. It is on the receiver's side to report lost/stolen mail to USPS and possibly the local police, not the sender. Once it has been marked picked up on my side, it is out of my hands. After you have called them and started an inquiry, message me directly with the "Service Request Number" so we can work together on a resolution. They will ask you to check with your neighbors first.

If a package with tracking seems "stuck" somewhere you can also call to have them check.

If your package shipped via "Priority" and you have any issues with lost/stolen, and wish to make an insurance claim, contact me directly.

My order shipped to the wrong address

I will send gifts to an address you provide me BEFORE I mark an item shipped. Unless you indicate otherwise before I mark an item shipped, orders will be shipped to the address you have on file with Etsy/Paypal/Apple/etc. Please double check it prior to submitting an order and upon checkout. Anything lost or returned to me due to an incorrect address will result in a new item and/or shipping charge, which will be the responsibility of the buyer. There will be no refunds on missing packages due to an incorrect address. If you have not received an item, please contact me but I will only send items to an address shown in Etsy.

Decal pricing and bulk discounts

The base price is $1 per inch of the longest side. So if you order a 4” decal it will start at $4, 10” will start at $10 etc. I add/subtract depending on the complexity of the design. Then I add the minimal amount to cover materials, platform and shipping fees (usually between $2 to $5 depending on the size of the decal). Whatever is left is what I make.

I keep my prices as low as possible. I don't like inflating prices just to give discounts. BUT, I can save you money on larger orders or by bundling multiple items together which saves on time and shipping costs.

I can offer reduced pricing on bulk orders for charity events, fundraisers, teams, groups, companies, etc. Message me if you want 10 or more items and I'll see what I can do.

Custom and personalized orders

Yes! We do custom decals and personalization. Just message with as much information on what you are looking for. The more info the better. I usually do not charge extra for this as long as it is something I can do quickly and easily. If it will take a lot of extra time on my end, then there could be an additional charge that I would let you know about up front after assessing what you need done.

If you are buying a gift to send directly to someone, you can type your message in the “Gift Note” section which I will include. Please triple check the address you list is their correct address if sending to someone other than the address listed in your Etsy account.

What size decal should I get?

This is mainly determined by the location of the decal. On a car, you want it large enough (minimum 5”) to see clearly from 20+ feet away. For a decal with text, it should be large enough to read from a distance. Thin lines or small pieces of decals are more likely to have issues. Use your cell phone as a quick size reference. Most phones are 5 or 6 inches tall and 2.5 to 3 inches wide.

All sizes are exact, in inches as signified by the “ symbol, with the longest side first. W = Width from side to side, H = Height from top to bottom.

Sizes are to the nearest 10th of an inch given in decimal points
Example
.25" = 1/4"
.5" = 1/2"
.75” = 3/4”

If you need different or more exact sizes than you see listed just message me before ordering.

Types of vinyl

There are 3 main types of vinyl. I mainly use Oracal 651 "Permanent" which is best for car windows. I do have some Oracal 631 "Removable" which is best for interior walls.

There is also Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) used to iron-on shirts. I have some HTV on hand but it can be hard to work with especially if you've never done it. I like to make people aware that there's trial and error involved. There are different types of HTV for different shirt materials like cotton, polyester and others. The temperature, hold time, and pressure used is different for each type of material so just using home irons can be difficult.

If you order a decal you will receive the permanent vinyl. If you need the removable or HTV please message me before ordering.

Care Instructions

I send decal application instructions with every decal (psst, it's on the back of the note). Please note, decals will not last forever or in all situations. There are things that can be done to help them last longer such as proper application, giving them time to adhere to the surface, not putting them in an area that gets frequent wear and tear such as phones, tumblers, etc.

Thin lines or small pieces of decals are more likely to peel up so please use extra caution when applying and handling those. For areas of high use, like the back of a phone, expect the decal to last a week or two. For areas that don’t get touched often, like the back of a car window, the decal can last for many years. Please give your decal the best chance to last.
