Bubble and Geek: An Unexpected Journey

Welcome friends! Bubble and Geek is dedicated to making nerdy noses happy with a collection of soy candles, melts, soap, perfume, and lip balm. The company launched in early 2012, beginning at first with only a selection of a few video game- and geek-themed soy candles. Since then, the Bubble and Geek line has expanded to include over 40 unique, pop culture-themed fragrance options. I am constantly working behind the scenes to bring you awesome new scents, as well!

All of Bubble and Geek’s products are made by hand in small batches. The scents are all custom-blended, so you won't find them anywhere else! My candles and melts feature clean, renewable soy wax made from soybeans grown in the USA with naturally lead- free cotton wicks and the highest-quality fragrance oils.

My inspiration usually comes from favorite books, video games, movies, and TV shows, but anything that strikes my fancy is fair game. I find joy in being able to create products that make people smile!

We love animals at Bubble and Geek and wouldn't dream of testing on them! In fact, my cat is helping me type this right now, and the company's HR manager is a parakeet. Additionally, all of our products products are vegan (except our lip balm, which contains beeswax). (Yes, that includes our Bacon Pancakes scent.)

Returns and exchange details
Refunds are considered on a case-by-case basis, but please keep the following in mind:

Shipping costs are nonrefundable, unless I have made an error.

If you are not satisfied with your candle purchase upon receipt, send the package back within 3 business days. As soon as I receive the unburned candle in new condition, I will reimburse you for the cost of the item (not shipping costs).

Unfortunately it is a violation for me to accept returns on any personal care products (pretty much anything in my shop that is not a candle).

I do my best to describe things as accurately as possible, but everyone's nose is different, so there are occasions when one of my scents doesn't smell to someone, what it smells like to me or those who have smelled our scents in testing. Because of this, I always recommend that my customers try out one of the below sample packs before committing to a full size product if you are unsure whether or not you will like the scent:

Payment
Payment is accepted via PayPal or Etsy Direct Checkout.

Note: It is not necessary to register with PayPal in order to pay via PayPal with a credit or debit card.

Sales tax is calculated and charged based on your location, and in most cases is out of my control.

Duty and Taxes:

In some countries, buyers are subjected to customs taxes and duties on items shipped from international locations. The buyer is responsible for all international customs fees/duties. The cost varies by value and location, so it is the buyer's responsibility to research and be aware of what to expect. If you have questions about this, your local post office is a good place to check.
Shipping
FREE SHIPPING on US orders over $35 - No coupon code needed!

Current order processing time is 2-3 business days.

International orders take 2-3 weeks to arrive after shipping date.

Your items will be shipped to the address listed on your Etsy receipt. If you want your package to be delivered somewhere else, please let me know in advance.

:: Packing Materials ::

To help protect orders in transit, I frequently use the following cushioning materials: tissue paper, recycled plastic bubble wrap, recycled Styrofoam packing "peanuts," biodegradable corn starch-based packing "peanuts." If you have a problem with any of these materials, please contact me before you place your order (or leave a note in the "Notes to Seller" box at the time you place your order).

:: US Customers ::

I generally ship small orders (weighing under 16 ounces) within the US in bubble mailers via USPS First Class Mail. Orders within the US weighing more than 13 ounces are shipped in boxes via Priority Mail. within the US. Tracking numbers are provided with all US orders upon shipment.

:: International Customers ::

I am able to ship to most countries (for additional shipping costs of course), but please message me for a quote before purchasing if you don't see your country listed. (Note: Generally I recommend that international customers consider purchasing my candles in tins as opposed to the ones in glass jars, because the tins are much lighter to ship.)

All International orders weighing less than 4 pounds are shipped via USPS First Class International. Bubble mailers are used for smaller orders, and I use boxes for larger orders/orders with breakables. Tracking numbers are always provided, but are not always reliable with international orders.
Additional policies and FAQs
Got a problem with your order? Please oh please, let me know about it in a convo before leaving anything less than 4 stars! It is so upsetting to me, as a seller, to hear about problems in a rating that is 3 stars or less. It might not mean a lot to you, but it is my life and livelihood. Keeping customers happy is how I pay the bills, so please let me have that chance! <3 </soapbox>
