Announcement   Welcome to Scatterbrain Ties! I make unique, artistic, screen printed neckties. Each creative tie features my original artwork and is screen printed carefully by hand. I've got several new unique necktie designs: Abe in the Hat, Gnarled Tree and Frog on a Penny Farthing. New colors and silk options also coming soon.

*** We are home of the ORIGINAL screen printed Circuit Board tie, and still the only one with copper AND silver metallic inks. Beware impostors!

What makes us different from other tie shops? No clip art! Everything here is original art of my own creation. I also have several designs with two or even three colors printed on them as opposed to the usual single-color images.

I've also been selling silkscreened shirts on Etsy for about eight years in my other shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ScatterbrainTees

Interested in a variation of what you see? Want it on a different color, on silk, or a skinny or long tie? Just contact me and I will try and find something that works for you.

About

Art is meant to be seen... and worn.

What greater canvas than a portable one? I love the idea of wearable art, and have always loved wearing artistic and creative ties and T-shirts. The idea to create some of my own was too exciting to resist, but T-shirt presses and other equipment can cost hundreds or even thousands. So in the spirit of true DIY projects, I built my own set-up (with the help of a like-minded, creative friend). Before long, apocalyptic accordions, pretentious frogs, dapper foxes and octopuses ended up on shirts and became Scatterbrain Tees.

Somewhere along the way I thought it would be great to add ties to the mix, so I created Scatterbrain Ties. It's a different kind of canvas, so it's a new challenge, but people are happy to find ties that are actually fun to wear.

    I am an artist with a passion for creating beautiful, bizarre, creative and original artwork and items. My neckties are unique because they feature my own artwork, usually things you wouldn't expect to see on a tie.

    Is there anything she loves more than rolling up artistic neckties and shipping them around the world? Probably a few things, but she's still really good at it and is happy to answer your questions.

Thanks for taking a look at my Etsy store! If you have any questions, comments or requests PLEASE feel free to contact me. I'd love to hear from you!

All my items feature art created by me. Being original and creative is important to me, so each image is from my own imagination. I am an honest seller and artist who believes that good customer service is not only right but good for business as well!

Items created in a smoke free environment.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Paypal, Debit or Credit Card and Etsy Gift Certificates. When a Paypal payment is delayed as an E-check, I wait for them to clear before shipping.

I am happy to make trades with other Etsy sellers, but don't do it very often. Feel free to ask; but with limited expenses and little need for jewelry or other accessories, it's a rare thing. Still, it doesn't hurt to ask!
Shipping
We strive to get orders shipped out in a timely manner. Please note that shipping times are NOT guaranteed unless specifically mentioned in correspondence with you. The USPS gives shipping times that are the normal transit time for a given shipping class. We pass this information on to you so you know how long it should take. The estimates are correct 85% of the time, but sometimes packages take longer than USPS' estimate. Please understand this is beyond our control. If you need an item to arrive in a guaranteed time frame, you will need to pay for a more expensive, guaranteed service, such as Express Priority or FedEx. If you have any questions, please contact us.

***Within the US and Canada: Items below a certain weight are shipped first class. Anything heavier is shipped Priority Mail.

***International shipping:

Shipping internationally may cause your parcel to attract duties and custom fees. They are the responsibility of the buyer. Please contact your local customs organization for more information. I will not mark items as "gift" unless it is a gift you are sending to someone outside of your home.

***All packages are shipped with a tracking number. You will receive a message telling you your package has shipped and will be provided with a tracking number. If you are outside of the U.S., the number may tell you little more than that it shipped out of the U.S. on a given date, but only some countries use USPS numbers to allow you to continue tracking your package within your own country.

Shipping charges include cost of shipping and packaging materials.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please contact me within 15 days of receiving your item(s) if you are unhappy with a purchase.

Returns must be in the original condition and comparable packaging (meaning it should be sent as safely as it was originally). I do not accept returned items that smell of cigarette smoke. Custom orders are nonrefundable.
Additional policies and FAQs
***Custom Orders: I am happy to do custom orders of certain types, but be aware that I may turn down some due to degree of difficulty. For instance, the process of screen printing onto clothing is very involved, and some custom orders would potentially take many hours to execute. Generally I don't do custom orders with designs that aren't already in my shop. Occasionally I will do print jobs if you have an image ready and if it's a large enough order. Still, please ask me and I'll let you know what it possible!

***Feedback: Positive feedback is very much appreciated. If you have any concerns, please contact me rather than leaving negative or neutral feedback as I am always happy to help resolve any issues.
