Shop policies

Last updated on January 6, 2013
Hello, and thanks for geeking it up at the Nerd Nook!

Below are all my shop policies regarding shipping times, insurance, tracking, & returns.

For most non-customized rubber stamps/paper items/keychains, your order will be shipped within 7 business days.

For PERSONALIZED/CUSTOM DESIGNED rubber stamps, please allow 10 business days from your time of purchase for your item to be mailed.

If you purchase a custom stamp and you do not already have a font/image and idea of exactly what you want, please allow extra time for design.

Once you and I agree on the design, and your stamp is paid for, then I can begin.

Design fees may be applicable depending on the nature of your stamp, and the amount of design time I must put in to your stamp.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
Payments must be made up front for all custom orders. All other orders must be paid prior to shipment. I accept paypal and money orders from Canadian and American buyers. International orders may only be paid by paypal.

If you are paying with money order please make sure it is an international money order. The US postal money orders with green borders are not cashable here. If you will be paying with an e-check through paypal, please note that your order will not be shipped until the payment clears.
Shipping
We ship with Canada Post. In general, we only visit the post office once a week (usually Tuesday). We generally do not ship with tracking, as Canada Post charges substantially more for this. If you do require tracking though, please notify us beforehand and we can calculate what the shipping will be. For larger orders, it may not be that much more.

Shipping times vary when mailing outside of Canada, due to customs etc, so I cannot guarantee shipping times. Most items take anywhere from 9-15 business days to the USA, and on occasion a bit longer.
International Orders can take anywhere from one week to 6.(rarely six, but it isn't unheard of)
If you need guaranteed shipping time for a certain item, (that birthday or anniversary gift) contact us beforehand so we can find a shipping method that is faster, and give you an estimate.

Insurance:

Shipping from Canada with insurance is extremely expensive. So expensive in fact, that if we charged you for it, you wouldnt be buying any of our items. Therefore, we are self-insured. Meaning, we charge slightly more for shipping, even when combined, than the actual cost of shipping. If your item should go missing, or arrive damaged, we will replace it, from our "insurance fund". So please dont be alarmed if you buy 5 items, for example, and are charged $7 shipping, and the parcel arrives with $3 postage. No, the parcel will not be insured by the post office. But it is still insured, and that $4 paid for it.

To our international customers:

We do not collect any customs when sending our packages. Any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred at the time of delivery would be at the discretion of your country's tax regulations. We have no way of calculating how much these fees would be, should they occur, and The Nerd Nook is not responsible for those charges. Returns will not be accepted due to customs fees.
We cannot lie on customs forms, and mark it as a gift when it is not. This is illegal. The value declared on your package will be what you paid for the item (less shipping).
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final on Custom orders. Other items are reviewed on an individual basis, and may be exchanged for store credit. Exceptions to this would be damage, in which case you would be allotted store credit for the value of the item, or the item can be replaced. If an item does arrive damaged, please contact us with a photo of the damaged item.

I cannot accept returns for orders that took longer to arrive than expected. Shipping times are estimated, but not guranteed, outside of Canada.
Additional policies and FAQs
How do I clean my stamp?

I recomend simple dish detergent or shampoo. It's important that you do not scrub the suface with anything abrasive, as this could scratch the design.
Allow them to dry face up, or dry by patting them down with a towel.

What inks Should I use?

This depends on your project! If you're stamping on paper, there are a variety of inks available.
Pigment inks are rich in color and render gorgeous results. They can almost look silk screened! This type of ink tends to sit on top of the paper, rather than soak in, and takes slightly longer to dry.

Dye based inks take hardly any time to dry, and also come in many different shades/colors. This type of ink soaks right into the paper. If you're stamping a surface that's extremely porous,or draws liquid (like handmade paper, or wood) this may not be the type of ink that you'll want to use, as it will bleed into the paper.

For surfaces other than paper that you'd like to stamp permanently, there are other inks made specifically for fabric and wood. Some come in pads, and others come in a tube that must be rolled on with a brayer.
If you need any hints or tips, please contact me:)

Are the stamps mounted?:

All stamps are sold umounted.
I will mount any stamp for an additional fee upon request.
I do not automatically mount my stamps though for several reasons. First, they are very thick to begin with and often don't need it. I have no problem handling them as they are, and mounted stamps take up additional storage space as well.

The shipping cost is greater to the buyer if the stamps are mounted because they will exceed Canada Post's thickness guidelines for my shipping rates.

Please let me know before ordering if you think you will need a mounting block. I can attach it before shipping (shipping will increase) or mail it along with the stamp for you to attach when you recieve it. There is no additional shipping for this, because they can travel side by side and still fit through Canada Post's 2 cm slot of doom!
