Welcome to Hand Painted Nerd! I am an artist who loves all things nerdy. I hand paint ceramics using high quality, food safe glazes and fire them in an 1800 degree kiln. Each piece can be painted to order, so I can also adjust color schemes or customize the design.

A wide variety of ceramic pieces are available, including mugs, plates, platters, bowls, pet food dishes, picture frames, piggy banks, Christmas ornaments and flower pots. I begin with high quality bisque ware that I personally inspect prior to glazing. I then hand paint each piece with a triple coating before dipping them in a clear coat to insure a smooth, shiny finish.

My favorite nerd genres include Doctor Who, Firefly, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Lord of the Rings. I also enjoy painting things for the child-like nerd in us all, such as Despicable Me Minions, super heroes, and other favorite animated characters. I also do totally custom pieces that are not from the geek realm (e.g, wedding platters, retirement mugs, anniversaries, birth announcement commemorations, etc.). If you have an idea of something you'd like painted, please feel free to contact me through my shop.

Thanks for visiting and let your geek flag fly!

Accepted payment methods

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
If something is damaged in shipping please send photos within 7 days of receiving your order and I will paint a replacement item for United States orders only. International orders are required to pay for additional shipping costs.

Any additional problems please contact the shop within 7 days of receiving your order to discuss the issue.

Otherwise all sales are final.
Payment
Payment can be made directly using credit cards or with Paypal. Cancellations of Made to Order items are only permitted if the cancellation request is made within 24 hours or the order being placed and production of the piece has not yet been started.
Shipping
Items that are in stock and ready to go will be shipped within 2 business days. Made to Order items will ship within 3 weeks. Orders for in stock items can be cancelled if I have not yet printed the shipping label with postage when I receive the cancellation request. Custom orders, however, cannot be cancelled once I have begun painting the piece.

I take great care in packaging my pieces , but occasionally something may be damaged in transit. For domestic orders (inside the United States), if a piece is damaged during shipping I will paint a new piece for you and ship it to you at no charge (photos of damage are required). For international orders, I will either paint a new piece and ship it for just the cost of the postage or refund the cost of the piece. Please note that the initial shipping costs will not be refunded.

Please also note that it is possible that I am out of a particular unfired mug design. If this is the case, I will let you know and we can discuss alternative mug shapes and styles to paint the design onto.
Additional policies and FAQs
All hand painted ceramic items are food safe but are not dishwasher safe. Please hand wash only.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I am currently not accepting custom orders. Sorry but my work load is too much to give them the attention.

Care instructions

All my mugs are hand painted and kiln fired. I do not recommend putting them in the dishwasher because it may chip your item or wear away the sheen of the glaze.

Can you put a card in my order?

If you are sending an item as a gift I always send an invoice without a price in the box upon shipment. If you include a "note to seller" it prints on the shipping invoice. You can include anything from a note to me or a random thought like bagels are delicious. I suggest you use this space to leave any note you would like.

When is the 2016 Christmas deadline?

I have currently set my Christmas cut off as December 3rd.
