Helping to celebrate the geek in all of us.

Exciting News! Our first published book, Periodic Thoughts, is finally out! Find it on Barnes & Noble and Amazon!

Shopgibberish is a mother/daughter owned business and our little shop was born in January of 2009 when we had the idea of spelling things out with elements from the periodic table. It took us several weeks (and numerous attempts) before we got to a place where we thought it would be fun AND acceptable within the scientific community. The first geeky products we made were scrabble tile necklaces for all of the teachers in Julie's school science department. They were a hit and we knew we had something fun to offer the world, so we joined the ETSY community. Things took off pretty well, and before we knew it, we were steadily selling geeky products!

By the first holiday season, Jenavieve needed to step in and help and she gradually ended up becoming a valuable partner in crime. She has a strong art background and an eye for what looks best. In June of 2011, we were super fortunate to be chosen as the featured sellers on the front page of ETSY (

In the last year, we have been very busy and we can honestly say the vast majority of our ETSY time is just loads of fun. We laugh a lot, binge frequently on cable shows, are quite snarky on occasion, and we definitely have a small business attitude and philosophy that includes tremendous pride in the product we make. With detail being such an essential part of what we do, we strive to get it right every time (or fix it fast) and to continually work to promote our mutual passion for art and science!

Since we joined the ETSY family, we have met so many wonderful customers that are as passionate about science as we are. Shopgibberish has opened numerous doors for us in the science community, and we have taken great pride in having our items for sale in both the MIT gift shop and the Nobel Museum in Stockholm. We have also been featured in BUST and New Scientist magazines and have sold our geekiness at the American Chemical Society meetings, the California and National Science Teachers Association meetings and the Bay Area Maker Faire. We are committed to designing products that make us hard core science geeks smile, that knowing smile of delight, when they see something they just can't live without.

Who knows how geeky the future will get, but we will be ready with our scrabble tiles, our sewing machine, sandpaper and tape dispensers...and the occasional test tube.

Scroll Down and you will see the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account.

Payment must be received within 48 hours of purchase or the transaction will be canceled.


Because we offer our customers the ability to customize most of their geek-tastic purchases in a number of ways (font, color, etc), most things in our shop are made to order.

→ Due to a large volume of orders, we are operating at a 7-14 business day turnaround time. If you need something sooner, please contact us! Please be aware that due to the handmade nature of our items, we cannot guarantee delivery times. Please keep in mind that we're not Amazon or Wal-Mart. We are independent artists. We are quite fond of our customers and try our best to accommodate special requests.

→ We use the United States Postal Service (USPS) to ship all orders.

→ Please note that we cannot be held responsible for any orders lost or damaged in the mail.

→ Please make sure you double-check the "ship to" address! We ship to the address provided and it is the buyer's responsibility to inform us if the address they selected was incorrect. If an item is returned to us, we will happily ship it to a new address but we request that the buyer pay the additional shipping cost. We are not responsible for orders that are lost in the mail because the address the buyer selected was incorrect.

→ If you need to purchase expedited shipping, you will have an option to do so at checkout. **Please be aware that this does not include the time it takes to make the item. The time of delivery estimations for Express/Priority upgrades should be calculated after a few days of processing time. All of our items are handmade/made-to-order so it does take us SEVERAL DAYS to make everything especially during busy seasons! **YOU MUST LET US KNOW WHAT DATE YOU NEED THE ITEM BY WITHIN 2 DAYS OF ORDERING IF YOU PURCHASE AN UPGRADE! We are not responsible for it arriving after your assumed due date if you don't tell us when you need it.**

→ If you would like to purchase insurance, convo us.

→ Please be aware that you may have to check with your own local post office for information about your order if something has seemingly gone awry. We aren't able to do much other than file a complaint with the main USPS Customer Service line and call your local post office but it is much more efficient and reasonable that you also help in the discovery process. We have been shipping our items with USPS these many years because we have experienced nothing but good things from them.

→ You agree to our policies when you make a purchase from our shop.

..............................INTERNATIONAL ORDERS..............................

→ Please note that international customers may have to check with their local post offices for information about their orders once they have cleared customs. We have little to no info about an order once it has left the country. We cannot be held responsible for any additional fees once an item has cleared customs. We try to keep our shipping costs low and we are unable to predict the cost of any additional fees so the buyer is expected to pay it if required by their postal service.

→ We ship most international orders USPS First Class Mail. You'll have the option at checkout to upgrade to Priority or Express.

→ If you need your order by a certain date, it's always best to convo us so we can advise you on whether you should purchase an upgrade or not. It does take us several days to make everything so please take that into account.

→ At this time, USPS only offers tracking info to the following countries:
Great Britain
New Zealand

→ International orders can take anywhere from a week to several months (not usually the case, but it has happened). We've never had any orders not make it to their international destinations but please be aware that it can take a while.
