About

Proud to be a nerd.

We’re avid gamers, cosplayers, and all-around geeks. We’ve been going to nerd conventions for a long time, we’ve met some really awesome people, and over the years we got in the habit of making geeky gifts for our friends. We’re both artists, and we would scrounge together whatever craft materials we had lying around our apartment, and make keychains and tiny sculptures of various video game and pop culture characters. Our friends liked the gifts we made them and they thought other people would like them too, so they encouraged us to open up an online shop. So we decided to take their advice, and give it a try!

Since our early days of making gifts for our friends, we really amped up the quality of our items so that we can offer you all some really well-produced geekery. Creating authentic handmade goods is our way of saying, "Viva la fandom!" So none of our items are resold, 3D printed, laser cut, cast from another artists work or manufactured anywhere except within our studio! All of our items are hand-sculpted, hand-painted, and crafted with a high attention to detail.

We love being creative together and we love sharing what we make with geeks like ourselves. What we hope to accomplish with our items is to help you make your inner nerd a little more visible from the outside. Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions, ideas, suggestions... or more importantly, if you want to send us your gamertags - please don’t hesitate to send us a message!

Sincerely,
Tyler and Sara
Straight Up Geek

TRACKING: All shipping options offer tracking information and updates that are available through Etsy when viewing your order.

LOST PACKAGES: Straight Up Geek cannot be held responsible for lost packages. Only items with insurance can be replaced/refunded if they are LOST in the mail. However, if this happens we always try to work with our customers on a case by case basis to figure something out!


---------------------------------------------------------------

•INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING•
We send our international shipments using USPS First Class International which usually arrives in 3-14 business days. All internationally shipped packages come with $50 of insurance. Recipients are responsible for any additional Customs charges.

---------------------------------------------------------------

•SERVICE•
Straight Up Geek cannot be held responsible for delays in shipping caused by USPS. However, we always are attentive to the orders we send out and follow tracking information to ensure that orders are received quickly as possible.

All items are shipped to the address specified by the customer. If there is a customer error when typing this address, Straight Up Geek cannot be held responsible for the failed delivery.

If the customer is not available to receive the package, Straight Up Geek cannot be held responsible for delivery failures. It is the customers responsibility to make themselves available to receive the package.

For shipping within the United States: If a package has not arrived within 15 business days from the date of purchase, we consider the package lost and will offer a refund or exchange on a case by case basis. If it has been less than 15 business days and the package has not yet arrived, we consider the package to be 'in-transit'.

For shipping outside the United States: If a package has not arrived within 30 business days from the date of purchase, we consider the package lost and will assist the customer in receiving a refund from mailers insurance.

Additional policies and FAQs
•CUSTOM ORDERS•
>Please be aware that Custom Orders almost always cost more than the price of the original item being modified<

We allow buyers to request customization on many of our orders. With most requests for custom paint-jobs, we do not charge extra for the customization. However if a custom request requires significant physically change to the item's size, shape, or design additional fees will be added. This fee accounts for the additional labor that's required to make a one-of-a-kind item just for you (hand-sculpting/hand-painting).

•WHOLESALE•
Most items are available for wholesale or bulk orders. Please contact us for more information.

•COUPONS•
Coupons will be available during special events and holidays.
Thank-You-For-Your-Order Coupons are only for repeat customers under the same account. We reserve the right to deny any customer or order using a coupon code wrongfully.

Frequently asked questions

Why hasn't my order shipped yet? / How long is your processing time?

Processing time is 3-7 days.
Our items are made to order...meaning we have to make them first!
Our shipping time estimates begin from the DATE SHIPPED, not the date ordered. Please expect a processing time of 3-7 days before an item is shipped. (And let us know if you need it rushed)

You'll receive an E-mail once the item has shipped!

How long will shipping take?

Shipping times depend on what you select at checkout:

● Standard Shipping ● ~3-7 business days.

● Standard Shipping w/ Insurance ● ~3-7 business days and comes with $50 of insurance.

● Priority Shipping ● ~1-3 business days and comes with $100 of insurance.

● Priority Mail Express Shipping ● Guaranteed 1-2 business day arrival and comes with $100 of insurance.

● International shipping ● ~7-20 business days

Why isn't my tracking information updating?

It's (unfortunately) common for USPS tracking information to not always update.

If a package has not arrived within 15 business days (30 for international packages) from the date of purchase, we consider the package lost and will offer a refund or exchange on a case by case basis. If it has been less than 15 business days and the package has not yet arrived, we consider the package to be 'in-transit'.

International packages will usually stop updating once the package has left the US. USPS stops receiving updates when the package is in the hands of the new carriers overseas. Contact your local mail service for more information.

Can I return my purchase?

Yes! We are happy to offer refunds as long as the item is returned to us! Additionally, if you are unhappy with your item for any reason please contact us and we will try to work something out! We always want out customers to be happy.

However, we do not accept returns on custom items, international orders, or over-sized props, and strongly suggest the buyer to purchase insurance for fragile products.

International purchases can receive refunds through the mailing insurance if the package is damaged or lost.

Can you make something new/alter one of your items to fit something I have in mind?

Yes! However, please be aware that Custom Orders almost always cost more than the price of the original item being modified.

We allow buyers to request customization on many of our orders. With most requests for custom paint-jobs, we do not charge extra for the customization. However if a custom request requires significant physically change to the item's size, shape, or design additional fees will be added. This fee accounts for the additional labor that's required to make a one-of-a-kind item just for you (hand-sculpting/hand-painting).
