Note from shop owner Hi, thanks for stopping by!

Marimakings is temporarily closed while I am finishing up orders and getting caught up on other tasks. You may contact me if desired, as I check my shops daily.

In the meantime, if you have an existing order, it will be shipped soon, and you'll receive an email at that time. The shop will reopen in a couple of weeks.

Thank you, and enjoy your day!

About

Decoupage is my crafting obsession, and my switch plates have been around for over 25 years! They have been sold in antique stores, shopping malls, and museum gift shops. The plates I use at home are decades old and still look new!

Welcome to Marimakings, where you'll find the most original and long-lasting light switch plates anywhere! They are beautiful works of FuNctional art, and have collector value, too! I do custom orders, image searches, and also create original art. If you can dream it, I can design and make it for you. Simply leave me a message or go to "Request Custom Order".
***************************************************************
Why the name MaRiMaKiNgS? Well, my name is Mari, and I love making beautiful, unusual, and functional things. Also, the term “merrymaking” means having a lot of fun, and that is how the creative process feels to me. When you purchase my products, it is my personal wish that they help brighten your life. I feel that art is worthwhile, and that at its best, it can evoke positive feelings and memories. Why not display it on your walls in the form of permanent wall fixtures like my switch plates?
***********************************************************************
You'll find that my attractive light switch plates are of the utmost quality. Other shop's plates might be cute at first glance, but usually the quality doesn't hold up to close inspection, nor do they last very long over time. My plates not only hold up to close inspection but stand the test of TIME. My switch plates are also very competitively priced, and give you MORE for your money! They stand alone in the areas of art, layout, variety and quality. There are no loose corners, bubbles, wrinkles, or peeling of prints like on some shop's. And the screws MATCH, instead of sticking out like sore thumbs.

Some backgrounds are painted by hand, with colors that are beautifully integrated with high quality prints. Each one is preserved with FOUR layers of TWO kinds of sealant. This insures that they will last many years, maybe even a lifetime! The ones in my home have lasted over 20 years and still look new!

Thanks for reading this, and also for your business- it is appreciated very much!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Credit cards or payments through Pay Pal are accepted. You may send payment in the mail, but your shipment will take longer that way. It is very simple to set up a Paypal account or to send an electronic check through Paypal. If you need help with this, JUST ASK, and I will be glad to walk you through it.

If you want an item (or items) RESERVED, I will accept partial payments, much like LAYAWAY. I will set up listings for you and you can pay at your own rate! Why not replace all of your boring switch plates at home, and give your home a fabulous finished look?

When checking out, follow each step closely, to make sure your transaction has gone through. Also, please make sure the ADDRESS is correct.

THANK YOU- I appreciate your business!
Shipping
Items which are ready to ship will be sent as soon as possible, which is usually within 2-5 days. Items which are TO BE MADE such as custom orders will be shipped within 10-14 business days. AFTER it has been shipped, your order should arrive within 3-7 days (total time is around 12-21 days). Sometimes deliveries may be slowed during holidays or adverse weather. Please be patient. Please refer to your INVOICE which shows where your package is before contacting me. I will be emailing you as soon as your order has been shipped. Even the post office has problems sometimes, so please realize that you WILL receive your shipment. I have a 100% success rate and FIVE STAR reviews. Thanks for reading!

Insurance, delivery confirmation, and tracking are all available, if you wish, but you must let me know BEFORE PURCHASING that you want these features, so that I can adjust the price on the listing! Since all of these features cost me extra, I must tack the fees onto your cost. Personally, I don't feel that tracking is necessary. In over 1200 shipments, only two were not received, and those were from customers giving me a bad address! Please make sure that the address you give me is up to date. If you plan on moving, I will hold an item for you until you get settled.

THANK YOU for your cooperation and understanding!
Refunds and Exchanges
You may return an item you have purchased if necessary, and shipping costs can be refunded, depending on the situation. Refunds or credits will be issued accordingly.

Marimakings will replace any plates which are damaged DURING SHIPPING, but this should not happen, since items are carefully and professionally packed. Each switch plate has cardboard reinforcing, and the package is marked "FRAGILE" in red ink. Please let me know right away about any damages or disappointments.

If you are not pleased with an item, you may return it and trade for something else. If I have ACCURATELY filled your order, and you want to trade an item or get a refund, I ask that you assume the shipping cost, since it was not of my doing.

If there was an error on my part, such as sending the wrong item (this has never happened, but it is possible), I will send a self-addressed, stamped envelope for you to send it back. Then it will be replaced immediately with the correct plate.

Marimakings will cheerfully deal with any complaints, and I will listen to your opinions and criticisms, but please LET ME KNOW if something is wrong BEFORE leaving a review! A review is for the PUBLIC and it is not appropriate for revenge messages or for airing disappointment. Why not try my excellent CUSTOMER SERVICE by telling me how you are feeling? I will try to right any wrong if you only GIVE ME THE CHANCE. You might be pleasantly surprised!

Thanks so much for your time and business!
Additional policies and FAQs
My items and products are guaranteed to please, or I will cheerfully refund the selling cost if the quality did not meet with your satisfaction. Items must be returned back to me before any other action is taken.

Custom orders and WHOLESALE orders are welcome. Simply send me a message by going to "Contact" on my shop's home page. I'll be glad to work out details with you, including price quotes.

THANK YOU for visiting, and enjoy your day!
