About

The Snark Shop is Every Day Snark Goods

...and laugh-snorting. Fully supportive of the laugh-snort.

The Snark Shop is every day snarky goods, championing the spread of sarcasm, a love of snail mail, and embracing life's lighthearted moments. Collection currently includes a greeting card line, and launching at the end of Spring 2016, some snarky home goods and life ephemera.

The Snark Shop is funny stuff for non-stuffy grown-ups, aka YOU.

I guarantee at least one of the following will happen when you send or give a snarky card: cocked eyebrow, The Snort-Laugh (it's an official thing), that chuckle that happens when they SO know what you mean, serious eye-rolling, a punch in the shoulder, sticking out of tongues and/or raspberries a la your kindergarten playground, hugs, and belly laughs.

The Snark Shop is here so you can dispense with sending lame checkout-line birthday cards to your besties, or scribbling last-minute notes on that sheet of lined notebook paper you found under the sofa last week. Seriously? It had crumbs on it. So you can stop being funny-card-shamed (admit it, it's a thing) by your best frenemy. So you can avoid having the same engagement card at the party as every other guest (the purple one with the cartoon couple holding hands? Yeah I got that one, too.).

Your thoughts are not generic. Don't send a card that is.

The Chieftess behind The Snark

I started The Snark Shop a few years ago (it was originally called "Sara Does") (that's my name: Sara) (duh?) after having a couple ideas for some greeting cards. I've always loved snail mail and I wanted to find a way to spread this love + get people to send more mail. But my ideas were pretty generic and I didn't love my designs. The more ideas I gathered for cards, the more I found myself designing sarcastic, snarky statements, and trying to infuse dry wit into as many cards as possible. This is how I am in person, so it made sense - and I figured I should stick with what I know.

Because funny isn't Just for comedians, amiright?

I draw basically like a toddler, so hand-lettering or illustrations were out of the picture. Once I discovered the font I now use, I knew it was perfect for my blunt, sarcastic statements. Eventually, I narrowed down my favorite colors (a combination of which are found in almost every card), and moved forward. Now, The Snark Shop offers more than 50 snarky greeting cards, with new designs posted every month.

So my shop is snarky, but my love for my customers is totally serious. I'm glad to have you here, whether you're browsing or buying, and I'd love to help you renew your love for snail mail with a couple snort-worthy sentiments.

Shipping
I package (and in some cases will print) each item after you purchase it - this way, you know your purchase was especially prepared JUST for you!

I do my very best to get orders shipped within 1 to 2 business days of receiving payment, but sometimes prep can take 3 to 5 days if things are busy, or if I'm waiting on a shipment from my printer. Processing time is reflected in each listing according to my policies and current stock.

Please ensure your information and shipping address are correct at check out! I cannot be responsible for packages shipped to an address where you no longer live or one that was entered incorrectly.

If you’d like to ship a card or set of cards as a gift to a friend, please make a note on your order and choose GIFT AS GIFT as the shipping method! I will gift wrap the order and send directly to the address you specify in Note to Seller.

I use US Postal Service, and will take special requests for shipment dates or deadlines and again will do my very best to accommodate your needs! Here are the options for expedited shipping:

Canada + International:
--> Choose one of the USPS Priority Mail International Shipping options for 6-10 days Guaranteed. There are 3 options for Canada, Europe, and Australia - please choose accordingly :)

Very sorry at this time I cannot offer FedEx or UPS expedited shipping for retail orders.

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

SHIPPING GUARANTEES:
I guarantee that you will love your snarky goods! I guarantee they will make you laugh, giggle, chuckle, raise an eyebrow, or at the very least, raise a corner of your mouth up to something imitating a smirk.

I guarantee your item(s) will be packaged with love and care, taking as many precautions as possible to prevent bends, rips, or other damage as they journey to you.

I guarantee I love fulfilling your order and that I love you, my customers! I guarantee you are making my day + bringing me smiles + making an impact by shopping small and supporting solo biz owners.

I cannot, however, guarantee USPS shipping times. All shipping times are provided by and guaranteed by USPS (not me), and packages can be tracked via Etsy + USPS website once shipped. Once I have shipped a package, I am happy to help you track it and monitor its progress on its journey to you via Etsy package tracking, and USPS website, however once items are "out for delivery" or in the hands of USPS, I cannot be responsible for their arrival. Cases of misplaced or lost parcels can be be entered on the USPS claims website. If your order goes MIA, please see Refund Policies + contact me to work out an alternative.

If your package is marked as "delivered" by USPS, but is “not received,” (as in, they said it's delivered but you don't have it) please contact your local Post Office and check with neighbors / family members / housemates just to be sure. Speaking directly with your mail carrier can also be helpful. I trust USPS + international couriers to do their job, and you the customer to be honest about the status of your merchandise.

If I could hand-deliver every order with a hug (or just a smile), I WOULD <3
