About PretAGeek

Sales 10,768
On Etsy since 2014

It's amazing what a love of being creative can achieve!

Pret A Geek was first established in 2014 in a wee flat in Glasgow.

What started as a fistful of hand-drawn designs and a few fandom tees, has since branched out to the bookish world and beyond. With the introduction of our lovingly crafted and hand-poured plant soy wax candles we are master candle makers and designers of an even bigger range of tees, sweats and generally cool stuff.

Our current shift towards planet conscious has seen us moving all our products, process and packaging in a fully ethical direction. Our candles are vegan and cruelty-free and presented in recyclable containers, our clothing and accessories are gradually being updated to include only sustainable, PVC free, organic and recycled materials. Our packaging is either re-used at source and or fully plastics free and recyclable.

What we do matters to us, we treat every order with care and attention and aim to deliver it the way we would want to receive it. From the smallest single order to bulk and wholesale orders for weddings, events and retailers, each and every order is equally important.

We’re a family team who have been inspired by our insatiable love for all things quirky, shiny, creative and of course geeky. From artists to photographers to social gurus, we have it covered under our staffing, and we love every minute of it. It’s taken a lot of coffee, sweat, a few slip-ups, tears, and even more coffee to get us where we are today and we’re certainly not stopping now.

There’s no greater feeling than being able to say that people love what you create for them AND that you can spend every day making your designs and doodles a reality.

All of our products are spelled together with a little bit of faith and trust and a whole lotta love (unfortunately no actual Pixie Dust, well not that we are admitting to anyway!). For us, being a creative is about celebrating life and the ability to be comfortable in yourself and what better way to bask in all your artistic glory than with something that just screams CREATIVITY!

We love to chat so please just ask anything, no matter how big or small, and you can catch us on Instagram @pretageek for exclusive discounts, promo codes and general banter!

Get ready to Geek - with Pret A Geek!

Frequently asked questions
Candle Size & Care

Our 50ml candles will provide a lower scent throw than larger candles, they offer an opportunity to test scents before making a larger volume purchase.

Keep the wick trimmed to 5 mm right from the first burn. Always trim before relighting and ensure no wick residue is left lying on the wax.

On the first burn, ensure the candle has the opportunity to burn a melt pool across the whole diameter of the container.

Our candles are made from natural soy wax, some frosting & cracking may occur on the finished product, this is normal. It is a feature of a handmade soy candles and will not impact your scent or burn.

Keep candles in a cool, dry environment. When lit never leave unattended.

Tee & Sweat Care

All of our clothing items are hand finished with print detail. Whilst label instructions may state general washing instructions we always recommend:

*washing at 30 when dirty, do not tumble dry and iron on reverse*

This will preserve the life of your printed goods and they will be delivered with a branded buff tag with the same instructions.

Generally we recommend you wash it, wear it and love it!

Gift wrapping and packaging

As standard all of our items come wrapped in tissue paper with, business card, branded buff tag and a treat to finish.

All parcels are securely packaged for transit and we now use only recycled/recyclable materials and are removing all plastics from our process.

We offer a gift wrap and gift message service. It is free to add a printed gift message, this will also exclude the invoice from your packaging so the recipient will see no price details.

Additional gift wrapping in Kraft Paper with string can be purchased at checkout for £1.
