About ThePerfectCup

Sales 1,632
On Etsy since 2012

Inspired by the elusive and unseen, made by hand.

We're inspired by the stories humans tell each other, the old myths, the enduring legends, the second and third hand accounts of the mysterious and strange. We transform that love of stories through an alchemy that's two parts inspiration, two parts coffee, and one part tea into wonderful things that we hope inspire you, too. ^_^

    I love comics, pop-culture, and folklore. This humble little shop is the fusion of my passions. <3 Matilda

    When I was ten, I remember asking my parents why the dinosaurs weren't in the Bible and their lack of a satisfying response led me on a personal journey into the strange and unknown that pretty much dictated the rest of my life. Fueled by coffee.

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
All sales are final. I've done my best not to mislead you in my description, and if you have any questions about an item, or would like more images or deeper description, please get in touch!

Please notify me immediately if your item arrives damaged. While I package each order with care, accidents beyond my control can occur; letting me know in a timely manner allows me to get to the bottom of when and where it happened and work at resolving the issue.

It is up to the potential buyer to check my shop announcement for any sales that may be running. Partial refunds will not be given in the event that a buyer doesn't notice an existing sale until after the item is purchased.
Payment
I gladly accept Credit and Debit Cards, PayPal, and Etsy Gift Cards!

Maine residents will be charged 5.5% sales tax to the item price as required by my home state.

All my items are handmade in very small batches to ensure uniqueness! As such, all sales are final.
Shipping
I ship all items through Etsy's system which automatically adds tracking to your package and notifies you with that information when it ships. US domestic orders generally take 3-5 days from the ship date to arrive. International orders can take anywhere from 7-21 days; arrival times are dictated by the customs/postal operation in your specific country.

Your item will ship within the time period specified in the item listing. Please take note of that when you purchase as some items are handmade on demand and can take many days to several weeks to complete. If you would like such an item as a gift and aren't certain if it can be completed in time, please get in touch with me! I I'm always willing to work with you. ^_^

Correct Address
► It is crucial that you make certain the address you have listed with Etsy (and Paypal if that is how you’re paying) is correct. I do all of my shipping with Etsy (which coordinates with Paypal at checkout) and cannot be held responsible for packages that are misdirected due to incorrect address. If a package is returned to me, I’m happy to send it to you again, but you will be invoiced for additional shipping charges.

Lost or Stolen Packages
► It is my job to package your items securely and get them safely to the post office. When it ships, you will receive tracking information that enables you to follow your package digitally to its destination. Once it’s in transit, I have no control over it. If the tracking information shows the package as having been delivered, but you believe your package has been stolen, misplaced, or has gone MIA for any reason, you MUST get in touch with your local post office. I’ve gone through this with more than a few people in the past and there is absolutely nothing I can do on my end. Once I deliver your package to the post office, I have fulfilled my shipping duties and cannot influence how the post office operates--especially during busy shipping seasons.

Priority Mail Upgrade
► I ship most packages USPS first class. If you would like to upgrade to priority mail, please note, a priority mail upgrade does NOT mean your items will be made faster, only that they may reach their destination faster once shipped. If you are interested in an item, but fear it may not reach you in a specific timeframe, please message me. I’m willing to work with most time constraints, but only if I know about it beforehand. Please do not purchase an item then demand that it get to you sooner than scheduled. That's stressful and upsetting for everyone. :(

Shipping Directly to a Third Party
► If your purchase is shipping to a different address as a gift, please make sure that gift recipient knows to expect a package~! Share the tracking number so they can keep an eye on it. It’s very difficult to file a claim for lost/stolen packages for gift recipients when the buyer doesn’t live in the same area as the address to which it was mailed. This will make for sad people all around and there’s nothing I can do to help. :(

International Buyers
► International buyers are responsible for any additional fees/duties that are required by their country's individual policies. I also cannot be responsible for delays should your package get caught in your country's customs; I can only make sure it mails out to you in the time frame specified in the listing.
Additional policies and FAQs
I accept commissions! Illustrations, original character renderings, variations on items in my shop, customizations--contact me with your ideas! I'm excited to work with you. ^_^

I also accept bulk orders on many items--pins, bags, etc. If you, your club, or organization would like more information, drop me a line!

While I respect that there are many fabulous people making wonderful things here on Etsy, I do not currently accept trade offers.

♥ Matilda
