★ Symbols available are: heart, lotus flower, hashtag, and I can also do coordinates.

★ Sometimes I can squeeze in a little extra; if what you would like exceeds the amounts above, I may be able to still make it work out for you. :)

★★ During the order process, be sure to let me know the words you'd like in the "message to seller" text area. Please type them as you'd like them to appear. Don't worry - if any information is missing or unclear, I'll message you to make sure everything is just as you want it. If you don't see a "message to seller" area, no worries, I'll be in touch to ask what you'd like on your necklace.

★ Please note, that since every letter is stamped individually by hand, not all text will always be perfectly straight or evenly spaced.

★ I can only stamp on one side of the dog tag.

★ If you would like your text in a format not specified, no worries, just contact me and we'll work together to make it just how you'd like.

If your desired text won't fit on the dog tag with the selected text type or direction, I will contact you to let you know, and we can work together to make it work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I wear my necklace or bracelet in the shower or pool?

I would recommend removing your jewelry before swimming or bathing. Chemicals in the pool and minerals in the water will discolour the metal and fade the lettering over time. Also, moisture sitting in the hemp can result in mildewing.

Is my knit/crocheted item machine washable?

Every knit or crocheted item I make has the care instructions stated in the listing details, plus I always attach a care tag with each item when shipping. This tag will indicate the materials the yarn is made with (for skin sensitivity and allergy reasons), as well as care instructions.

If you lost the tag and are worried you may ruin your item, just contact me, and I'll be glad to steer you in the right direction.

Is there any restriction to what I can have on a custom or personalized item?

Yes. I absolutely will not make any custom items that promote or support any hate. This means nothing racist/sexist/homophobic, etc.

I have absolutely no issues with "foul language". Bring it on! Just don't use it against anyone. :)

Do you offer discounts?

Yes. On larger orders a discount is available. Please contact me for details

Are all of your items cruelty-free?

Almost. Some knit items may contain wool. Please read the details for each item to ensure you know what you're buying-- I will ALWAYS mention if an item contains wool. But if you want to be extra sure, just contact me. :)

Will my order be shipped with a tracking number?

Maybe. If you're outside of North America tracked shipping isn't an option. Sorry, but the cost is SO outrageous, and honestly I've never had an overseas customer complain about long shipping times, nor has an order ever gone missing. (*knock on wood*)

If you're in North America and your order contains one of the following, your order WILL automatically be shipped with a tracking number:
> knit or crocheted item (cowl, slippers, hat, water bottle holder, etc.)
> notebook

If you are ordering ONLY smaller items (necklaces, bracelets, patches), your order WILL NOT have a tracking number included. Please contact me if you require one and we can discuss your options

Are we all amazing, kooky, and unique creatures on this crazy planet?

100% yes. It's so great, isn't it?
