Perortic Highlights

Welcome! This shop sells recycled paPER OR plasTIC: environmentally friendly polystyrene and polyethylene, and repurposed paper. Thanks for browsing (and a virtual hug if you're reading this section because you want to make a purchase.) Perortic had to become a shop when within the same week a 13 year old and a 50 year old both told me I should sell my bags on Etsy. Many thanks to you ladies. I undoubtedly wouldn't be here today without your encouraging words.

This shop enables my creative outlet. Once my production quantities exceed sanity's sake, I can test these items' appeal to strangers, who will ideally regard them as unique finds, perfect gifts for friends and family, and/or personal indulgences. A little background on what initially inspired my diverse creative interests:

Origami
A favorite book as a very young child was "How to Make Origami," by Isao Honda. It took years to master those figures. After a gift wrapping frenzy, one scrap was an almost perfect square and my adventure in miniature origami began. What to do with such tiny things lead to jewelry making.

Shrunken polystyrene
The process for me is doodling/refining, cutting, and melting. As I am an artisan, not a trained artist, most designs come from what I draw well, mainly flowers and butterflies. Turning drawings into jewelry seemed a logical next step.

Plastic bags
This was a combination of wanting to do something with all those bags and searching for a rainy day activity. This lead to finding a great book at the library (which I really need to re-find so I can promote it here!) that included directions for making a rug out of plastic bags. I never made the rug, but wandered into bags. As noted in my profile page, when in the same week a tween and someone middle aged both mentioned "Etsy" I knew I'd found my practical solution to what to do with all this stuff.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Refunds and Exchanges -
Please let me know if you're not happy with your purchase so we can come to an agreement on how to proceed with a replacement or refund. It will be assumed if I have not heard anything after 3 months that you have received your package, have no problems, and the transaction will be considered closed.
All of the original packing material and box must be retained, and photographs taken that clearly show any and all damage; these procedures are insurance coverage refund requirements. The damaged item must be retained until a refund is received, just in case the insurer requires access to it. The refund for an item damaged in transit will be for the original item price plus the original shipping cost.
no refund can be issued for an item for which we were given an INCORRECT shipping address (e.g., a former address, an error in the delivery address on your PayPal account, or an incorrect address of a person to whom you sent instructions for delivery as a gift, etc.).
Shipping fees are non-refundable unless you were sent the wrong item or the item(s) arrive in poor condition. Returned goods must be received in salable condition to qualify for a refund.
Payment
This is a new shop; I'm currently only shipping within the USA, but I do hope to be shipping internationally. Please send me a note; check back. The shop accepts credit card through the Etsy Direct Checkout, or through PayPal.

Paypal: please make sure that PayPal has your correct/desired shipping address, because that is the only address displayed to shops. If you want to ship to a different address you need to let me know before the purchase. If no Paypal payment is made within 48 hours of the initial order, the item will be re-listed.

If you’re new to Etsy, see this guide for making your first purchase: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php

All payments must clear before your shipping your item(s).

New York State buyers. . .
Please select "other" when paying for your item due to tax regulations in New York State. If you're a regular Etsy shopper, you probably already know. If you're unfamiliar, in a nutshell, while everyone else determines sales tax on where the seller is, New York bases sales tax on the buyer's location, and even zip codes aren't accurate (as it's by county). Here are relevant NY tax links:

Shipping
An e-mail notification will be sent:
1. on receipt of purchase
2. once payment has cleared
3. on shipping.
The item(s) will be shipped within 3-5 business days unless otherwise noted.

Regular shipping is through the US post office. Delivery time may be as much as 2 weeks (or more during the holiday season.) UPS/FedEx is available on request; extra shipping fees apply.

Recycled shipping materials are used whenever possible. (I save money, so you will too, and we're helping the environment.)

If you wish to insure your order, please let me know and I will calculate the cost.

Let me know if you prefer a particular shipping method BEFORE the purchase, so I can estimate new shipping costs.

Postage rates are estimated so you will be reimbursed the difference if more than $1.00.

If a package is returned as undeliverable, you will be contacted. If the mailing address is an error on our part, every effort will be made to get your package to you as soon as possible. If the mailing address is correct, according to the order placed, we reserve the right to bill for additional shipping costs to resend the package. If you choose not to pay for additional shipping, the order amount, minus the shipping and handling charges will be refunded.
Additional policies and FAQs
Warnings -
Allergy warning: Perortic is an online business. All items are typically made in space shared with a cat. While precautions have been taken to separate the animal from working materials, those with severe allergies should contact me for custom orders to be entirely created in a cat-free environment. Perortic is smoke free (except for the smog; Brooklyn is in the city after all!)

about bags:
Please keep in mind these bag by nature have holes; great care must be taken with things like knitting needles, keys, pens, pencils, etc. as they will poke through the material. Don't put these types of things in these bags unless you have put them in a smaller bag/case/what not first. (See, I'm giving you an excuse to keep shopping on Etsy!)
So how strong are these bags? Note, I am a one-person operation, not a manufacturer, so I have no data for you on “how” strong, but if you consider I use multiple grocery bags to make one of these bags, I think I'm safe in saying the amount you would transport double bagged, you could safely carry in here.

about earrings:
Please note the polyurethane that was used in making some earrings was added to stiffen the paper, not make the earrings waterproof. Take care during inclement weather. Do not wear while swimming, bathing, etc. While they all origami items are crafted to be durable, they are paper, so a long life is not to be anticipated. Rather than appreciating these earrings for durability, treasure the design or artisanship.

Perortic will never sell, rent, or disclose your name, address, email address, or other personal information to ANY third party unless required by law to do so.
