Announcement    --- PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT ---
tl;dr - Etsy store price increases due to non-optional Etsy ad fees. Go to my webstore instead:
www.laserforgeminis.com/all

Some customers may have noticed a sudden price hike on all of my Etsy store items and only a limited range of my items remaining and this is correct.

Unfortunately, due to Etsy bringing in non-optional off-site ad fees at an extortionate 12% (i.e., I cannot physically choose not to place those ads), I could not bear this cost alone completely. I already do my best to offer the best prices I can on my items. This "offsite ad fee" does not just apply to the single item clicked on, but rather the entire order which contains the clicked item. This clickthrough also remains active for 30-days, so even if a click was made 2 weeks ago, the fee still applies when the order is put through!

Up until this point, I had already given into Etsy's "strong-arm" approach to their premium listings by offering free US shipping on orders over $35usd (sellers are required to do this or they will not be found in the first few pages of Etsy search results) - which this system also often gets abused. Unfortunately, I often have to cover shortfalls in shipping fees.

So, I can only apologise on behalf of Etsy and their, frankly disgusting, business practice towards sellers. If you would like to save some money and still get my items however, there is another option: You can buy my items at cheaper rates via my webstore, where there are no outrageous advertising fees.

Frequently asked questions
Packaging & Safety

99% of the time, all of our acrylic products will be dispatched with a protective backing on one side. You will need to remove this to reveal the full beauty of the item itself.

Custom and personalised orders

We do offer a custom service where we can design and make a product to your specification - please message us for further information.

Care instructions

Certain acrylic colours get greased up and/or dirty pretty quickly, getting covered in an endless pattern of fingerprints.
However - you'll be happy to know cleaning acrylic is a breeze.
All you need is some Isopropyl Alcohol (Rubbing/medical alcohol) and a soft, lint-free cloth - do not use paper as this may cause fine scratches.
Apply a couple of drops of IPA to the cloth and gently buff grease and dirt off the product, then gently wipe dry.

Alternatively, you can use lens/glasses wipes for similar results.
