Announcement   100% satisfaction guaranteed.

I also take custom orders for both glow-in-the-dark *and* commissioned artwork.

For glow items, my current commission = $0! So you win! :-)

Guarantee DOES apply to your custom piece! If I like your idea, I will make your custom piece and then give you the option to buy. If you do not, no problem.

But you will want it, I'm confident. ;-) (If not, someone else will. So I win either way.)

We both win! I do this because I have to make a mold, anyway, and chances are if you liked it, someone else will, so all I'd have to do is mix resin, glow powder and pour into the mold. (Actually there's a bit more to it than that, but I'm not giving tutorials. Ha.)

About

The Glow-in-the-Dark Man makes art pieces among brightest, longest lasting glow-in-the-dark IN THE WORLD!

I have always loved things that glow-in-the-dark. I majored in art, so I have always loved art, too. I stumbled across Glow, Inc. products when I was looking for something totally different. On a whim I decided to buy some and see if they were any better than what I had seen before, mostly since they claim to be. And boy are they!

Back to my life, I worked for 25 years and achieved the title of Software Engineer, Advanced. I started developing problems with my hands and having other health issues such as back and neck, and finally in 2013 I was declared permanently disabled. I still cannot type very much at all (I am using dictation software to write this).

I still cannot sit or type very much in a day. But I found out that I can draw without too much pain. And then I thought well if I can draw can I sculpt? And I can! So I started making stuff that glows in the dark. I am using only the best materials in the world! So my items are among the brightest glowing and longest glowing items anywhere in the world!

This is so cool that you have to see it to believe it. So I decided to see if I can work myself off of disability or not. I know that I can make multiples of a given item after I make a mold of it. So that's what I'm doing. I'm trying to do my best. If it turns out that after several months I find that I cannot make a living doing even this, then I may decide that they are right and I am permanently disabled.

Until that day comes I am going to do what I can to help myself, especially if it may make my hands stronger!

If you're still with me, thank you for reading all of this,
Leland…

    I majored in art, minored in music, saved my pennies and bought a computer, taught myself to program and within a 25 year career I gained the title of Software Engineer Advanced. I'm now on disability and I use my art as therapy for my hands.

I have always believed in using the best media and products that I could find. So when I make a piece that glows in the dark, I want it to really glow, no matter what color it is.

Technically, this may not be possible because some colors simply do not glow as long as other. That is just our current state-of-the-art. However, the colors that are available these days are orders of magnitude better and brighter than the glow-in-the-dark toys we played with back in the 60s and 70s.

I order everything from Glow, Inc., when possible. (There are a few colors that they do not carry. E.g., yellow glow-in-the-dark powder.) For the colors that I cannot order, I try to mix my own using their products – and have seen good results.

I also use as much glow-product in each piece as I can, up to a point of diminishing return, of course.

I am currently on disability and I am wondering if I may be able to work myself off of that by way of this shop. That would be awesome! I can do artwork without it hurting my hands, but I cannot type for any time at all. (This is written with dictation software – which has been a lifesaver!) I am just telling you that as a general goal for myself. I do not know if I will be able to do it or not. But I know that if I do not list some things in my store, I definitely will not! :-)

Payment
Payment is due ahead of shipment. Right now I accept only PayPal or standard Etsy payment forms. If demand warrants, I will add credit card payments, too. However, I will need to be making some good money before I can do that.
Shipping
All items will be shipped via the method you select. If you want insurance, be sure to include that. If your shipping method supports tracking numbers, I will send you a tracking number as soon as your order has shipped.

Also please note that just because you choose next-day shipping does *not* mean I will ship any quicker. Time estimates are provided on each item you have ordered, so if you've missed those, just return to the page in the shop for that item and look for the information.

If you order multiple quantities of a made-to-order item, that will add time to do your order, unless you specify that you want me to ship them ASAP. If you do that, then I can ship a couple of times a week if I need to.
Refunds and Exchanges
Everything is 100% guaranteed! I want you to shop with confidence and enjoy my The Glow-in-the-Dark Man creations! :)

If you are dissatisfied for any reason, please notify me within 24 hours via a case report, detailing why you are unhappy, and I will immediately issue a refund upon receipt of the item. All I ask is that you send me a message so I know what to expect. (And so I know it was you who returned it.)

You now have 30 days to return an item for any reason. Note that if there is no damage, then you will pay the original shipping. (Unless you are within the EU and your country has additional protections. I will honor those, but you must inform me what they are.) I.e., I will return the cost of the item less shipping.

Any item damaged in transit will be replaced or refunded at your option. Items that are reported lost must be reported first to the shipping provider and I must get a report of loss that has been filed. If that happens, I will send you a replacement free of charge including shipping.

I want you to shop with confidence in my store!

I know you will love your glow-in-the-dark products from me, thus I can make such a good refund policy.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are guaranteed against breakage and will be refunded or replaced at the buyer's option.

I welcome custom orders! Please contact me for details.

I am open to consignment inquiries. However, due to the nature of handmade items, I'm not sure that I could offer wholesale. (At least I cannot offer the volume that normally indicates.)

Finally, if your country requires that I include seller info *before* you can purchase, please let me know and I will fill in that box, too.

Thank you for everything,
Leland...
