On Etsy since 2007

Welcome to Neko-jin Designs!

We've been in business since the summer of 2007, primarily vending at anime, gaming, and comic conventions across the United States. Our move to Etsy has helped cultivate and nurture the growing demand for our products online. What you see in our shop is a small sampling of the hundreds of awesome items we make. To see the full range of our quirky merchandise, check us out at a show--we keep our Etsy Local updated! Als, be sure to Like us on Facebook to keep track of our ever-expanding convention schedule!

All of our accessories are handmade and many are one of a kind. We strive to make them as unique and strange and awesome as the two of us and our customers--because why on earth would you want to be normal when you could be super CUTE, extra NERDY, and incredibly INTERESTING? ^_^

The cute cats and critters that inhabit our shop in the form of stickers, keychains, bags, and prints are all original designs. We're always adding more, so be sure to check back often!

  • Chris

    Owner, Designer, Web Flunky

    I love my work and have a lot of fun designing cute and awesome stuff for a wide range of interesting people. I enjoy good food, black coffee, and writing. In my down time, I sculpt fantastical creatures and bake delicious things.

  • Matilda

    Owner, Artist, Jewelry Engineer

    I love to art. Drawing, crafting, creating; anything that requires the use of my hands makes me happy. I use a variety of techniques in my work, but everything I do still starts old school with a pencil, paper, and a hot cup of tea. ^_^

  • Bruce

    Owner, Assistant, Creative Chaos Manager

    A boundless source of inspiration, our resident feline spends his days napping in the middle of projects and keeping us in line. He enjoys chasing bugs, batting small items off the table, and rearranging the studio. =^..^=

  • Jase

    Junior Creative Chaos Manager

    Jase is the newest addition to our team and takes her job of managing chaos VERY seriously! =^..^=

Thank you for shopping our little creative corner of the world! Making people happy by creating unique, one-of-a-kind items of the things we enjoy is pretty much the best thing ever. If you have additional questions after reading through our basic shop information, don't hesitate to message us!

Accepted payment methods

Paypal Mastercard Visa American Express Discover Apple Pay Klarna Giftcard
Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
if you have questions, issues, concerns, or problems, please get in touch with us!

Please understand, we offer repairs, but not returns.

We do our best to ensure our quality is top notch, sourcing reliable components for our jewelry and accessories; however, in the case that an item is not as impervious as we had intended, we will happily repair most items that do not withstand normal use within the first twenty days after it was marked delivered via our tracking information. Please get in touch with us before returning an item for repairs. The cost of return postage is the responsibility of the buyer; we will cover the cost to mail it back to you once it has been repaired.

All sales are final. We've done our best not to mislead you in our descriptions and images, and if you have any questions about an item, or would like more images or information, please get in touch!

Please notify us immediately if your item arrives damaged. While we package each order with care, accidents beyond our control can occur; letting us know in a timely manner allows us to get to the bottom of when and where it happened and work at resolving the issue.

It is up to the potential buyer to check our shop announcement for any sales that may be running. Partial refunds will not be given in the event that a buyer doesn't notice an existing sale until after the item is purchased.
Payment
We gladly accept Credit and Debit Cards, PayPal, and Etsy Gift Cards!

Maine residents will be charged 5.5% sales tax to the item price as required by our home state.

All our items are handmade in very small batches to ensure uniqueness! As such, all sales are final.
Shipping
I ship all items through Etsy's system which automatically adds tracking to your package and notifies you with that information when it ships. US domestic orders generally take 3-5 days from the ship date to arrive. International orders can take anywhere from 7-21 days; arrival times are dictated by the customs/postal operation in your specific country.

Your item will ship within the time period specified in the item listing. Please take note of that when you purchase as some items are handmade on demand and can take many days to several weeks to complete. If you would like such an item as a gift and aren't certain if it can be completed in time, please get in touch with me! I I'm always willing to work with you. ^_^

Correct/Safe Address
► It is crucial that you make certain the address you have listed with Etsy (and Paypal if that is how you’re paying) is correct and safe for parcel delivery. I do all of my shipping with Etsy (which coordinates with Paypal at checkout) and cannot be held responsible for packages that are misdirected due to incorrect address or stolen after delivery. If a package is returned to me, I’m happy to send it to you again, but you will be invoiced for additional shipping charges.

Lost or Stolen Packages
► It is my job to package your items securely and get them safely to the post office. When it ships, you will receive tracking information that enables you to follow your package digitally to its destination. Once it’s in transit, I have no control over it. If the tracking information shows the package as having been delivered, but you believe your package has been stolen, misplaced, or has gone missing for any reason, you MUST get in touch with your local post office. I’ve gone through this with more than a few people in the past and there is absolutely nothing I can do on my end. Once I deliver your package to the post office, I have fulfilled my shipping duties and cannot influence how the post office operates--especially during busy shipping seasons. PLEASE NOTE: Refunds will not be given for lost, stolen, damaged, or misdirected packages.

Priority Mail Upgrade
► I ship most packages USPS first class. If you would like to upgrade to priority mail, please message before purchasing your items--and please note, a priority mail upgrade does NOT mean your items will be made faster, only that they may reach their destination faster once shipped. If you are interested in an item, but fear it may not reach you in a specific timeframe, please message me! I’m willing to work with most time constraints, but only if I know about it beforehand. You CANNOT purchase an item then demand that it get to you sooner than scheduled. If you do, I will be very displeased! :(

Shipping Directly to a Third Party
► If your purchase is shipping to a different address as a gift, please make sure that gift recipient knows to expect a package! Share the tracking number so they can keep an eye on it. It’s very difficult to file a claim for lost/stolen packages for gift recipients when the buyer doesn’t live in the same area as the address to which it was mailed. This will make for sad people all around and there’s nothing I can do to help. :(

International Buyers
► International buyers are responsible for any additional fees/duties that are required by their country's individual policies. I also cannot be responsible for delays should your package get caught in your country's customs; I can only make sure it mails out to you in the time frame specified in the listing.
Additional policies and FAQs
We accept commissions! Illustrations, original character renderings, variations on items in our shop, customizations--contact us with your ideas! We're excited to work with you. ^_^

We also accept bulk orders on many items--pins, bags, etc. If you, your club, or organization would like more information, drop us a line!

While we respect that there are many fabulous people making wonderful things here on Etsy, we do not currently accept trade offers. We also do not answer questions about where we source our supplies.
