About

Love & Fun, Nerd-Style

Glorious Weirdo has evolved from a side gig into a one-woman effort of design, button-making and paper-crafting prowess!

Beth Hommel began Glorious Weirdo (then called Beth of all Trades) in 2009 to allow herself a creative outlet while she was a workaholic who spent all her time problem-solving in the music industry.

Ten years later, Beth is a full-time art-making entrepreneur, running her busy fandom and party themed shop from her Long Beach apartment.

Glorious Weirdo specializes in unique fandom gifts and party paper goods. As an offbeat kind of girl, Beth realized how much of the offerings of the wedding and party industry felt totally irrelevant to her life. Glorious Weirdo aims to change that, by offering items for a diverse range of couples.

Beth's goal is to celebrate diversity by thinking of couples of all genders, sexual orientations, races, sizes, ages and ability levels when she designs. She creates for people who break the mold--- it never fit anyone perfectly anyway. Bring on the superhero, geek, rustic, nerd, library, renaissance fair, fantasy, goth, candy, nautical, sci fi, rainbow, ocean, movie, and space themed celebrations!

In addition to paper goods, Beth also creates one of a kind, handmade sparkly combs and jewelry. Some of her fondest childhood memories are of playing with the rhinestone baubles her mother scored at flea markets and yard sales. Today, Moogie is still one of her best sources for the vintage jewels she uses in her accessory designs.

Returns and exchange details
If your order arrives damaged in any way, please notify us immediately so we can figure out a plan for replacement. Please keep all packaging and email clear photos of both the packaging and the damage to the item.

Custom stationery, buttons and magnets are non-refundable. I want my customers to love their purchases, so if something isn't quite what you expected, please get in touch to discuss some options. Reprints for color and text changes are possible, although they will incur additional fees.

Due to the nature of our sparkly creations, refunds and returns are handled on a case-by-case basis. If you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me and I will do everything I can to make it right.

Non-custom items, including supplies, may be returned for up to 30 days after they are received. Item returns should be sent with tracking. Once the return is received, a refund of the purchase price will be issued. Shipping charges are non-refundable.
Payment
Credit Cards accepted via Paypal and Etsy Direct Checkout.

Orders for non-rush custom items can be canceled by the customer up to 24 hours after purchase for a full refund. After 24 hours, a fee may be assessed to offset the design time already put in to the customization. After items go into physical production, custom orders cannot be canceled and quantities cannot be reduced.
Shipping
All packages ship from our studio in Los Angeles, CA. As big believers in reducing waste, we re-use clean, odor-free packaging materials when possible.

US customers:
We ship via the US Postal Service, using First Class, Priority and Express Mail. If you need an item by a specific date, please contact us to discuss turnaround times and shipping options. We strive to accommodate last minute orders when possible and have gotten orders to our customers in less than 2 days!

International customers:
International buyers are responsible for VAT and customs charges levied by the ship-to country.

We are happy to ship internationally and in the course of our careers have shipped thousands of packages to customers around the globe. Please note that international packages can take up to 8 weeks to arrive, although in our experience they usually arrive will be in your hands much, much sooner. If you need your item by a certain date, contact us and we'll set up a private listing for you that includes International Priority or Express shipping. Unfortunately we cannot be responsible for delays due to customs.
Additional policies and FAQs
MAGNET BACK BADGES & SAFETY:
Our clothing-safe magnet back badges are a great option, but the rare earth magnets used can be dangerous for children under the age of 10 and anyone with a pacemaker. Those individuals should have regular pin backs instead. Please let us know ASAP if any of your badges need to be switched to pin backs, and the difference in price will be refunded to you. Badges that are clearly for young people ("Ring Bearer," "Flower Girl," etc) will always be made with pin backs.

RUSH ORDERS:
Sometimes rush orders can be accommodated--- if you're on a tight timeline, please get in touch and we'll see what we can do! Shipping upgrades to Priority Mail can reduce delivery time to < 5 days (US) or < 10 business days (international). Upgrading to Express Mail can reduce delivery time to 1-2 days (US) or less than a week (international).

GENERAL:
Items are created in a house without cigarettes but with a variety of cats. If you have severe cat allergies, let us know and we will thoroughly clean your item and package it off-site with brand-new materials.

INVITATIONS:
Invitations are our original designs. I'm happy to alter existing designs to your preference or to create entirely new suites from your concept. Design fees will apply for major changes to existing suites or the creation of new suites. Digital proofs will be sent within 3 business days after I receive your information. Each order of an existing design includes two (2) rounds of text and color changes; additional edits will incur additional costs. Fully custom designs will be quoted on a case-by-case basis.

HANDMADE JEWELRY:
While some of our materials are new-old-stock, the vast majority have been used, loved and occasionally broken before they made their way to us. Wear, flaws, chips, cracks, scratches, patina and other signs of the age of the components could be considered imperfections by some. We personally love knowing that these pieces lived full lives before they came into our hands, but since beauty is in the eye of the beholder we have detailed in each listing anything that could be defined as a "flaw" to the best of our abilities.

PHOTOMANIPULATIONS
We love creating Time Travel portraits! Because of time required and the need for vintage images that reflect the gender, race or style of the client, these portraits may take up to six weeks to complete, although if you need it for a specific event, please let us know and we will let you know if we can work within that timeline--- usually we can!
