Hi there and thanks for the visit! I'm always about so feel free to send me a convo! ♥

Accepted payment methods

Paypal
Returns and exchanges
----->> You must contact me first. Be very courteous. If you are not satisfied completely with your order, you may return it at your own postage expense for a refund sans shipping AFTER contacting me first. Please contact me beforehand, and TAKE NOTE that if I do not receive your returned items, no refund shall be given as my product has not been returned to me.

----->> This goes for all items in the shop. In terms of temporary tattoos, you must contact me and let me know the state of your order (how many pieces are left, etc.). A partial refund will be given for the items that have not been used. You must have something to return for a refund.

----->> I FULLY RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE TO ANYONE WHO IS RUDE OR INSULTS MY PRODUCTS. I do not have to give you anything, nor do I have to have a return policy of any kind. Something simple along the lines of "Hi! I didn't really fully like this, may I have a refund?" is both respectful and conducive if you would like any money back.
Payment
----->> Due to length of processing time and too-often non-reception of payment, I now only accept Paypal except under rare occasions. If you are paying by credit/debit/giftcard then Paypal can accommodate you :) You will still choose "paypal" as the option for these kinds of payments and it should walk you through it.
Shipping
----->> I DO NOT OFFER OVERNIGHTED SHIPPING, UPS, or FEDEX.
----->> Any changes to regular, in-stock item shipping time will be noted on the main shop page under "announcements". For custom item shipping times, see custom items section in conjunction with your domestic/international times.

Please read the current shop announcement (main page, top) to see current shipping and handling times (during holidays it may take several days before I can ship a purchase, so please check the main page for up-to-date information :D). Delays may be caused by federally recognized US Holidays when the post offices are closed, and high-volume order periods during the holidays. All items come from Orange County in Southern California. All flat items ship in a standard white security envelope. 3D items ship in bubble mailers. All First Class Mail, USPS.

----->> Custom items, depending on the order details, need several days more than standard handling time to complete. Depending on what is being order in both volume and complexity, this time will vary but not be less than an additional 48hrs to usual shipping time, except under contracted agreement or extra payment for rush.

----->> I only ship to the address provided on the receipt. If you have incorrectly listed your address and your order has already been shipped, then you must pay in full for a new order to be sent to the correct address.

----->> If your original order with the incorrect address happens to be returned to sender (i.e. me) then you must repay postage plus $0.50USD to cover the fees Paypal will take for a new postage invoice.

----->> We are not responsible nor pay for customs/duties for your country if your country collects that. Plan accordingly. USA domestic orders should not have any such issues. Please contact if there are any problems.

----->> PRIORITY MAIL can be purchased ONLY upon contacting me beforehand and if I am able to do it (the holiday season gets hectic) FOR DOMESTIC MAIL ONLY. This service is available for an additional $7 within the United States, and I will need to send you a revised invoice or set up a custom listing. --I DO NOT do International Priority Mail orders. -- USPS says it's about a 2-3 day service, but they do not guarantee that, so I most certainly don't as I do not have any control over the mail after I ship your order.

----->> SHIPPING TIMES: All items are shipped USPS and depending on location, domestic or international mail, federally recognized holidays in my country or yours, inclement weather and political climates, your individual postage times may vary.

-----> A note, a business day is a week-day, i.e. Mondays-Friday. There are no mail services on Sundays, and Saturdays I do not ship. So one business 'week' is actually equal to 5 days skipping each weekend day.

----->> Domestic US Mail can take between 2-9 business days to arrive under usual circumstances. Allow more for incumbent weather, and federally recognized holidays when post office are closed, or around the holidays (i.e. Christmas, etc. when postal time can take weeks even within US borders). Business days start the day AFTER I ship your order, and are Mondays-Fridays. There is no post on the weekend.

----->> International Mail can take as long as 4 business weeks (1 month) to reach the furthest destinations, and as long as 6 under holiday season/incumbent weather/political issues. I have had cases of UK and Australian orders making it within 7 business days, though this is very much not the norm. I can't do anything about postage times, I don't control the mail, especially when it leaves the United States Postal System ;D
Additional policies and FAQs
A NOTE ON MY TEMPORARY TATTOOS:
------------------------------------------------------------------

Thousands have been satisfied with the temporary tattoos you can find within the shop, and a few have "complained" that the tattoos are too shiny or sticker-ish. They are indeed thick and hardy tattoos, but they are waterslide tattoos just the same. Perhaps not the same as what you would get out of a mass-produced gumball machine in the 90's, but still a tattoo :)

This is industrial grade tattoo paper I have to import. Anyone else on the site selling tattoos is using the same material, believe me. If this is going to be a problem for you then please refrain from buying. Any questions, please don't be afraid to ask! I don't bite! :D

Tattoos come with full instructions. They're just peel, stick, water, slide TADA! Tattoo goodness :) Peel off, remove stickiness with baby oil or the like, tattoo is gone voila! :)


CUSTOM ORDERS and SHIPPING
------------------------------------------------------------------

I am always taking custom orders! If you need something please let me know, I can probably make it! For future reference, with my stickers I can only work on a white finish i.e. no see-through/clear stickers, no metallics, and I also do not work in the vinyl medium. Only sticker paper. Sticker paper is not weatherproof, but weather-resistant. No claims are made on performance.

----->>Custom items, depending on the order details and time of year (holidays, etc.), need several days more than standard handling time to complete. This will vary but not be less than an additional 48hrs/2days to usual shipping time, except under contracted agreement or extra payment for rush. Custom pendants require an additional 4 days before they will be shipped in order to set properly.

TL;DR customs orders need an additional 2-4days on average to be created. Your shipping time will start after that. See Your Purchase Invoice: https://www.etsy.com/your/purchases to check the status of your item: Paid/Unpaid; Shipped.

----->> We are open during the business week (Monday thru Friday) so if you have rush or time concerns, please contact us to be certain things are doable. Work is closed Sat & Sun, generally speaking. Even God got to rest O_O


WHOLESALE/BULK ORDERS:
------------------------------------------------------------------

I do do bulk and wholesale orders. Please contact me about quantities, and also provide a government-issued resale number. Information will not be given out to those trying to scope out the competition. Trust me, you guys are really easy to pigeonhole. Thank you.
