About

Is it weird to say we're passionate about mugs?

Maybe so – but it’s true! Mugs have endless uses: coffee or tea, cocoa for the kids (or the kid inside of us), soup or chili bowl, cereal dish, ice cream container, pen holder! Is there anything a coffee mug CAN'T do?!? Probably, but it isn’t polite to remind them of their shortcomings.

WHY THE HOLD FASTERY?

● We like stuff fast. We assume you do, too. So we aim to get your order in your hands as quickly as we can!
● We like giving back. So we donate 5% of our sales to a new charity each month (our newsletter or Facebook can tell you which one!)
● We also like the planet, thus we use recycled & upcycled packing materials.

We take pride in all we do and are so grateful that we are able to share our goods with so many wonderful people around the world - nothing is a greater compliment than a repeat customer!

WHO ARE WE?

The Hold Fastery, LLC is run by a playful husband-and-wife team and we’re big enthusiasts of living with heart and LOTS of LAUGHTER! Life is best with a sprinkle of sarcasm and a smidgen of inspiration (plus, you know, real cream and whole lot of Disney) – and we love combining these both in our gifts, which we dream, design, sublimate, package, and ship all from our home office in TX, using the highest grade materials to give you a lifetime of enjoyment! Our business practices pay homage to our life philosophy of putting a sense of purpose, heart, and integrity into everything we do!

When we’re not engrossed in all aspects of running the shop, Brittney works in finance by trade and Sean is chief child wrangler as a very proud stay-at-home papa! We share our world with two tiny humans, six special-needs rescue pets, and a DVR full of Disney cartoons + zombie shows. We thrive on good senses of humor, coffee, library cards, family time, golfing (poorly), and as many escapes to Disneyland as we are able!

Shop members

  • Brittney

    Owner

    Constantly brainstorming new ideas, she's our designer and mug packer-upper extraordinaire! She's also who is responding to your inquiries at all hours, probably in pajamas and with chip crumbs in her hair. Ahh, motherhood.

  • Sean

    Owner

    Sean uses his Type A to ensure every mug is top notch before he hand presses it to perfection! He also designs and stays up into the wee hours to make sure orders get out as close to "same day" as possible!

  • Eleanor

    Resident Charmer

    She's a feisty little redhead in charge of causing a ruckus - and we wouldn't have it any other way.

  • Fletcher

    Dimple Provider

    Mostly he drools on stuff and then makes up for it with coos and giggles, but it still counts as helping the family business.

  • Bailey

    Chief Snack Officer

    Bailey, our 11 year old fully deaf & partially blind rescue spaniel, is very committed to ensuring our office sticks to a strict meal time schedule.

  • Emmie

    Director Of Crazy

    If there is nothing to be barked at or toys to be herded, she's your gal. If not? She'll be busy bossing Gizmo around and stealing space on the sofa.

  • Gizmo

    Assistant Crazy

    After being rescued from the hardships of living in a puppy mill, Gizmo is very grateful for his new role in life -- ensuring our Director of Crazy is never being ridiculous alone.

Shop policies

♥ Welcome In! ♥

We're Sean and Brittney, a husband and wife team dedicated to combining our love of creating unique + joy-filled items with a philanthropic purpose, so we donate a % of our profits to varying charities in need each month (we are particularly fond of children or animal welfare focused non-profits)!

♥ The Hold Fastery's Philosophy ♥

Our shop namesake is a play on the nautical mantra to "hold fast" - to hang tight, even in the roughest of seas, so as to not be thrown over and lose your way. It pays homage to our life philosophy of putting a sense of purpose, heart, and integrity in everything we do -- thus our shop is no exception!

✩ We donate 5% of our sales to varying charities each month!
✩ We ship our goods in eco-friendly, recycled materials (and upcycled materials) whenever possible!

As a reminder, you do not need to have a PayPal account to pay using PayPal. If you have any purchasing questions, please ask!
Shipping
► $5.95 USA FLAT SHIPPING: We offer our USA customers $5.95 flat rate standard shipping - whether you're buying a mug for just you or a mug for everyone you've ever met! ;) The Nitty-Gritty: Mugs must be doing to one address only (more than one address will require an additional $5.95 per location). We reserve the right to ship your order(s) in multiple packages to be as cost effective as possible, and smaller weight orders may ship USPS First Class with insurance/tracking (everything else ships USPS Priority with similar features). All other below policies still apply. Questions? Just ask!

► CURRENT PRODUCTION TIME: Please see the shipping information for each item's current production time. If shipping time is "in 1-5 business days", please remember this is the time needed to produce the order BEFORE it ships, so there will still be shipping days needed as well, and plan your orders accordingly.

► We ship to the address listed in "Ship To" at checkout, so if this is not where you want your order mailed, CLEARLY list where to ship your order in the "Notes to Seller" box when checking out. We are not responsible for reimbursing or replacing items shipped to the wrong address due to buyer error.

► USA ORDERS: All domestic orders come with tracking & delivery confirmation. We are not responsible for delays, damage, delivery issues, or missing items once the order has been placed in the care of the USPS.

► FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS (including Canada): Dependent upon your location, USPS shipments can take anywhere from 10-40 days once shipped. Buyer is responsible for any customs/taxes per your country and we are not responsible for delays once the order has been placed in the care of the USPS.
Refunds and Exchanges
Your happiness is VERY important to us! We politely request that you reach out to us with any issue or concern within 72 hours of USPS's stated delivery before leaving negative feedback so that we have a chance to set things right. Please remember that placing an order means you agree to our store policies.

CANCELLATIONS
► Because each item is handmade to order ASAP, we cannot accept cancellations once your mug has been pressed.

STORE ERRORS
► We take great care to ensure your order is correct before shipping. If you should receive an order with an error, please contact us within 72 hours of delivery with a photo of the incorrect shipment and we will rectify the error ASAP.

DAMAGED or MISSING ITEMS
► Our items are packed with care in 200lb crush-proof mug-specific boxes (that we tested by throwing down our staircase - the boxes look tiny but are mighty tough!), but every so often the postal service decides to play hackey sack with a box and damage occurs. Please contact us within 72 hours of delivery with photos of both the broken item AND the packaging so we can get a replacement mug to you ASAP!
► We are not responsible for issues caused by the USPS (delayed/lost/missing/stolen/etc) once the package leaves our ownership. Please contact your local postal office if you should suspect a package has gone missing or was not delivered accurately. We are not accountable for thefts of packages, so please have us ship to secure locations you trust.
► We are not responsible for damage caused during opening of the item, so please be careful (especially because mugs can be slippery)!

REFUNDS and EXCHANGES
► We currently accept exchanges provided we are contacted within 72 hours of delivery of the order and the items are returned in new condition. Shipping for the returned item(s) and for the new item(s) are the responsibility of the buyer.
► Items that contain customization/personalization are not eligible for exchanges or refunds.
► Refunds are only offered due to store errors.
► Each mug is made to order and printed by hand. Please allow slight variations from our digital mock-ups.

We appreciate your business and thank you for understanding our store policies.
