Item details

Handmade item

Materials

58mm pin button components, 44mm pin components

A spoonie pin set for those of us who use suffer from a chronic/invisible illness and use spoon theory to describe our energy levels. Functional button badges for you or your spoonie buddies.

Get either of the pins or get them both and save!

These badges are 58mm (2.25") or 44mm (1.75") in size (choose from the drop down menu) and are photographed next to a 5p which is roughly the same size as a US dime to show scale. They're super durable (I've even put mine in the wash by mistake and it survived, though I really wouldn't recommend it). Super safe pinless backs are now also available [for 58mm badges only] if you request it in the notes to seller or via Etsy Convo - no extra cost!

You now have the option of having your badge made from standard white paper or recycled paper. Check out the listing photos to see the difference. Recycled paper generally has a slightly more mottled look, with slightly darkened colours and a eco-cream colour rather than crisp white.

If you'd like to browse my other "Hello I Am" badges, you can click this link to see all of them in one place: www.etsy.com/uk/shop/doodlepeople?search_query=hello

And if you'd like some custom text on a "hello I am" badge, please feel free to message me with a custom request and I'd be happy to help. :)
[Please don't place an order and request a custom phrase in the notes to seller; this is NOT a custom listing and I don't do customisation for free!]

♡ HANDMADE ♡
Despite Etsy adding "this item was made with help from..." to every listing on the mobile app, please know that everything (bar enamel pins) in my store is made by me, in house with my own two hands (and a lot of love!)
Every badge, every mug, every bracelet, every patch, every print, every bookmark, everything. The singular exception to this (and thus the need for a production partner) is the enamel pins, as I don't have the technical skill or machinery to make these myself! :)

♡ SHIPPING INFO ♡
I don't use any new plastic when packaging your order, just paper and card - packaging is kept to a minimum and is all recyclable. The only exception is orders containing prints, but I'm in the process of switching over to biodegradable cello bags. :)
Any plastic included in your order is RECYCLED (i.e. I've received it in deliveries of my own and I am reusing it).
All regular domestic orders (within the UK) are sent second class (badges, mugs, stickers) or first class (everything else) by default, but you can upgrade at checkout if you wish. All regular international orders (outside the UK) are sent international standard (airmail).
Your order is not tracked unless you upgrade.
Check my policies for shipping estimates by location.
None of my shipping upgrades include a rushed processing time - your processing time will stay the same regardless of which service you select as all my items, except enamel pins, are made to order. :)
[UK] Special Delivery - if you select this option your order will be sent special delivery, which is next day guaranteed by 1pm (after the allotted processing time).
[EUROPE] Tracked & Signed - this doesn't increase the speed, it's just tracked and has higher insurance. Select this if you want tracking or if you've made a larger order, and you live in Europe. Also requires a signature on delivery.
[OUTSIDE EUROPE] Tracked - again, not any faster but it is trackable and has higher insurance; does not require a signature on delivery.



If this doesn't quite float your boat, I've got a lot more items [pins, patches, prints, accessories] back at my store so hopefully you can find something you like; just click here: www.etsy.com/uk/shop/doodlepeople

FAQs

I do custom orders! Yay! Please do contact me if you're after something special. I can make custom badges and patches, just get in touch. :)

I have a special listing for custom/personalised bracelets here: http://etsy.me/2Iw0UiD
Please note, if you request a custom bracelet you must order through the custom bracelet listing OR select the "custom phrase" option if ordering custom lettering through a standard bracelet listing. If you don't, I will have to refund and cancel.

P.s. please don't message me asking for a badge that directly contravene one I already sell. No, I won't make a badge that says "vaccines do cause autism" or "hug TERFs". I sell my beliefs on my badges, and I won't make or sell nonsense ideas I don't agree with.
Any pins, patches or prints can be ordered in bulk and I can provide a wholesale price upon request, just ping me a message! There is a minimum unit order for bulk discounts; the more you order the better deal you'll get, up to 60% off. In the case of pin buttons, charges for preparing artwork/text start at £2.50. For patches, this custom charge is from £5. Custom art/text prep charges depend on the complexity of the design and comes down to time spent on said prep. :)

My limited prints are, of course, limited. If there are 15 left then sure thing you can have 15 but there are no price breaks on these prints. The reason for that is usually because they're for a cause (e.g. a charity).
Your patch will be heat sealed so that it is wash safe. Though if you are going to wash it I highly recommend a gentle hand wash. If you must wash it in a machine then make sure it's a cold wash (30 degrees will be ideal). DO NOT TUMBLE DRY IT. I use screen printing ink and it is NOT tumble dry safe.

Don't worry though, I send out patch care instructions with every patch order.
All the "mark as gift" option does is remove the price from the packing slip; and you can also include an optional gift message for free.

Marking your order as a gift ~does not~ mean your order is going to come gift wrapped; gift wrap is not a service I provide for free. If you would like your order gift wrapped, you need to select the additional gift wrap option at check out and the cost will be added to your order.

Please be aware if you are outside the EU I have to declare the contents and value of your order on a CN22 customs label on the outside of the parcel. I have no choice but to do this (if I don't it may not get through), so be aware if you're sending directly the recipient they may read the CN22 and know what's inside.
Shipping, or postage and packing, is just that: postage AND packing.

The postage cost covers not only the cost of a stamp/the service used but will also include the cost of packaging material (envelopes, customs labels, airmail stickers, address labels); it also covers ink, labels, maintenance, Etsy fees (which are also charged on postage); plus my time spent packaging your order and taking it to be shipped at the post office/post box.

I keep postal costs down as much as possible, but they need to be covered. Don't worry, I don't make any extra money from shipping! If I think you've been overcharged (this sometimes happens if you buy many items; but larger orders do take longer to package) I'll refund you any shipping overages. :)
I always ship with Royal Mail. I ship every week day; I don't ship on the weekends.

UK: for badges, stickers and mugs, I use SECOND CLASS (but you can upgrade if you wish!); for everything else I use FIRST CLASS. If your order tips over into free delivery (over £20) it'll be sent second class regardless of what it is.

Outside UK: default is International Standard (Airmail) - I won't send Economy (land/sea mail), despite it being cheaper, because it takes a million years to arrive.
Your order is NOT TRACKED as standard.

You can upgrade to a tracked service at checkout BUT except in the case of UK next day, this doesn't make anything any quicker. Processing time also does not change.

Need it yesterday? PLEASE message me BEFORE you order.
For the purposes of my return policy, earrings are counted as an intimate item and thus cannot be returned because they're going into a body orifice (a hole in your ear!) and so I cannot resell them if they were returned. That said, if they're faulty you are fully entitled to a return and refund, of course!
Your order may get returned to me if it's undeliverable (I.e. If you have given the wrong address or an old address and the package has been rejected), or if you don't collect your order from your local depot where it may be held for a set time following non-delivery.
If your order gets returned to me, you have two options.
Either you can get a refund (full item cost, plus standard shipping - this means if you paid for express or tracked, you only get the cost of the standard shipping back, minus the cost of any upgrade).
Your other option is redelivery. You may request to have your order resent; but you will need to pay the shipping cost again (this is to be paid via Etsy or PayPal).
Almost all of my packaging is plastic free and recycled and/or recyclable. I print my order forms on recycled eco paper and your order will be packaged in a paper candy bag within a card envelope. The only place where plastic may come into it is if I need to use a little tape to seal the envelope (but even then I use paper tape or 100% recycled plastic tape!)

Some orders have to be sent in polymailers but I always make sure they're biodegradable and I'm currently in the process of switching to biodegradable cello bags for packaging prints!

Jewellery is either packed in an organza bag or a candy bag depending on what stock I have of each packaging material. If you'd prefer a candy bag (paper!) over an organza bag, please let me know.
Do make sure you have a think about where you put your prints. All the inks I use are archival, which means they're lightfast... but no lightfastness is totally infinite. I'd recommend not hanging your print in the line of direct, constant sunlight. But other than that, your print should be with you a very very long time with minimal to zero change in appearance/colour.

For holo prints, be really careful how you handle them because they're prone to taking fingerprints which can be pretty noticeable! As with above, try not to hang them where they'll be continually exposed to direct sunlight.
