About SparkOfSunshineShop

On Etsy since 2016

Welcome to SparkOfSunshineShop!!

Hi, I'm Jacqueline! :) I am a scientist with a passion for the ocean, physics, and art!

I started this shop to inspire fellow scientists and academics struggling with research and the challenges of writing. Our mugs and cards are meant to provide both a boost of motivation and comfort to someone's intellectual journey. Everyone can use a little more sunshine in their life, and I hope our products can add a smile to your day.

If you are a friend or family member of someone currently in grad school, support your loved one by reminding them you are cheering them on through crunch time!

I'm happy to customize any design or product, so feel free to get in touch!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I am happy to customize any design or create something special for you. The possibilities are endless! When ordering a customized product, I will send you a preview of the design for you to approve before I make it.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Sending a gift? Just let me know, and I can gift wrap it or include a gift message! :)

For non-gift orders, I will use up-cycled packaging when possible. I believe very strongly in reusing and minimizing waste. I hope it warms your soul to know that your package will have more than one life :)

What happens if the mug I ordered isn't in stock?

Occasionally we will receive orders before we are able to update our availability. If this happens, we will email you immediately and offer three options: 1) the mug can be printed on a different color mug (same size), 2) if a different size mug in the same color is available we can switch the size and refund the difference in price (if applicable), or 3) we can cancel and refund the order. If we don't hear back from you before your selected shipping window about what your preference is, we will send you a mug in the closest color option (same size you ordered).

What if the mug I ordered arrives broken?

Although we package our products very carefully, occasionally a mug will arrive broken. Please contact us as soon as possible and send a few pictures of the broken mug. We will resend a new mug free of charge as soon as we can.
