About

I'm just an antisocial tomboy who wants to make fun stuff.

Hey there! My name is Candice, in case you didn't already see that somewhere on here, and I'm absolutely horrible at these "about me" things, so excuse me if it ends up a bit all-over-the-place.

What can I say about my shop?

The name "Straitjacket Fun" comes from a song by the band Autolux. It struck a chord with me and I've been using it as a screen name since I first heard it. Depending on the day, it means a couple different things to me:

On a good day, it represents tossing the stigma of "crazy" (AKA mental illness), and instead, embracing what we may perceive as personal flaws, since we all have them and they make us who we are. On a not-so-good day, I'd say it's a sarcastic response to the struggle of dealing with mental illness on the regular.
And if it was a super-extra bad day, I'd cut the sarcasm and just say, "NO, actually, I'm not okay, but thanks for asking.", and then curl up in a ball and wait for death to take me. KIDDING.

I'm the kind of person who gets obsessed with celebs/bands/movies/etc, none of which ever seem to have any kind of merch available (I believe the kids are referring to this as "fandom" these days. Pardon me, I'm old). So I started making keychains and other random stuffs to rectify this. This led to friends asking me to make stuffs for them, and suggesting I sell said stuffs online. So I did!

I've been a huge button-collector for years, and always wanted to be able to make my own buttons some day. My wish finally came true a couple years ago, with a small loan from my dad to get my first button machine. EXCITEMENT!

Then came the realization that DUH, I have to actually make designs to put on the buttons. DERP. I'm still working on that part, learning different design programs, and trying to come up with a balance of designs that appeal to me as well as others, while also trying not to sway too far from my personal vision of craziness.

I also do custom orders via my other etsy shop, SJF Customs (www.etsy.com/shop/sjfcustoms), so if you have your own designs you'd like to put on any of my items, head over there and I'll hook you up :)

As you may have guessed from a lot of my designs, I'm a bit introverted, a bit sarcastic, a bit cynical, and a bit non-traditional. I hope you can appreciate that, or at least respect it. Because if you can't respect it... well, you should probably leave now. But if you can dig it, I'd love to see you sporting my designs. So if you grab some, be sure to post pics to Instagram and/or Facebook and tag me so I can see!

Frequently asked questions

Do you do custom orders?

Absolutely! If you only need one or two items, send me a message right here. If you need a whole bunch of items, I actually have a second shop specifically for bulk custom orders. You can check out my available items and contact me over there at www.sjfcustoms.etsy.com

If I want to order a bunch of stuff, can I get a discount?

Yes, I'm happy to offer a discount for bulk orders. Pricing will depend on how many pieces you'd like to order, so send me a message and I can give you a quote! :)

There was an item in your shop that I reaaaally wanted, but now it's gone! Can I still get it, or am I doomed to spend the rest of my life wondering what could have been?

Fear not! I keep all my designs on file, so chances are, you can totally still get it. If an item goes missing from my shop, it's either because it wasn't a big seller, or because it expired and I forgot to renew the listing. Just send me a message and let me know what you're looking for! :)

Care instructions

Don't get them wet.
Don't feed them after midnight.

Button images are printed with a laser printer, so the ink will not bleed, but the metal parts will rust if exposed to too much moisture.

My keychains are sealed pretty tightly, but if water manages to get inside, the images may bleed.

So try your best to keep your items dry!

I'm not sure what happens if you feed them after midnight, and I don't want to find out. Proceed at your own risk. I am not responsible for any damages caused by Gremlin takeovers.
