Thanks for stopping by Halfstitch! We are a female focused brand that creates empowering merch. We are trans and non-binary friendly. Please get in touch if you have any questions!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalised orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
We are a small business, so PLEASE CHECK SIZING CAREFULLY before purchase. Unlike when you order from big chain brands, If you order the wrong size from us then you are liable for the shipping cost to return the item. We can only send out a replacement/refund once we have received the original item back. We cannot accept returned items that have obviously been worn (stretches, stained, perfumed). In these cases the item will be returned to you and no refund/alternative can be awarded.

If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason please contact us and we will try our best to resolve the issue.

Unfortunately, custom items can not be returned unless faulty, so make sure you have everything spelt correctly.
Payment
Half/stitch embroidery accepts payments through PayPal. You do not need a PayPal Account to pay for your items through PayPal:

You can choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order click the "Pay Now" button. Scroll Down and you will see the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account.

Packages will not be sent until the payment has been received. Customers are obliged to pay within three days of placing the order. Half/stitch embroidery will provide you with one additional day (that's four days total). If payment has not been received on the fourth day, the transaction will be cancelled.

If you are having issues with PayPal or any other aspect of the transaction, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will work with you to accommodate your needs.
Shipping
All orders will ship within 3-5 business days from the date of payment (unless otherwise stated). All packages will be sent via Royal Mail.

Our international shipping fees are cheap and cheerful, but don't include tracking information as this does not come 'as standard' here in the UK. If you would prefer to be able to track your order, then choose tracked shipping at the checkout.

When shipping overseas Royal Mail has an estimated 5-7 day estimated delivery time, HOWEVER customs can delay packages by up to 6 WEEKS. This doesn't happen often, but it can happen.

All UK orders are sent via first class mail, unless noted otherwise. Notify the seller prior to making the purchase, if priority mail is preferred and it can be arranged.

If the shipping address is different from the address provided through Etsy or PayPal, please contact the seller prior to payment. If the Etsy and PayPal addresses are different, and no special instruction has been provided, Half/stitch embroidery will send the order to the address provided through Etsy.

We can not be held responsible for the loss of your item if you provide us with the wrong address so always double check your account before placing an order.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you're purchasing a Half/stitch embroidery item as a gift, special packaging and a hand written note can be included at no extra cost. Please use the "contact the seller" link at the bottom of the page to inform us of the occasion, shipping address, and personal message to be included in the package
Privacy
We take your privacy very seriously so we have put together a policy to allow us to become GDRP compliant. If you’re dyslexic like me, this might be a little confusing, but the short explanation is that we do not share your information with anyone, unless as a legal requirement.

Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order for example, you may provide additional text to be embroidered or printed on your order), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;

• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and

• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

We do not transfer personal information outside of the EU.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Trudi Lang, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at info@halfstitchbitch.com.

Frequently asked questions

Ironing and attatchement instructions

For most patch placements ironing will be sufficient for a few washes but for anything that will be worn frequently sewing edges is recommended. If you are placing patches on pockets or areas with doubled fabric underneath, sewing is encouraged to ensure secure and lasting attachment.
