Hello! These are ball point pens made from real pieces of drift wood collected locally along the Puget Sound and other beach areas of Washington state. The drift wood sticks have been drilled and fit with a ball point pen.
These pens are made-to-order. You have a choice of three different ink colors: 1. Black 2. Blue 3. Red
The cost is $9.99 per pen.
These are perfect pens for use at themed reenactment events such as Renaissance Faires,SCA, etc.. Or as a pen for your beach wedding guestbook or pirate party.
Please note that due to these pens being handmade using real pieces of drift wood, there will always be some notable variation in size, shape, etc... The pens shown in the photos are not the same exact pen(s) you will receive, though they will look very similar.
Please feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions not answered here, I am happy to answer your questions as quickly as possible.
I ship all items in accordance to the rules laid out by your payment processor (EG: etsy's direct checkout, Paypal, etc..) to be covered under their individual seller protection policies. Most items ship via USPS First Class Mail in padded mailers. Certain fragile items are shipped in sturdy boxes with bubble wrap and packing peanuts. Sometimes items are shipped via USPS Priority. All packages - both domestic and international, have a tracking number which will be provided to you in an automated notification when your item ships. You may also find this tracking number by looking up the transaction in your purchase history.
I try to keep my shipping rates as affordable as possible to the buyer - I recycle boxes and packing supplies when applicable, keep product packaging minimal, and do not typically include invoices or printed receipts unless requested or when required by law.
I'm happy to ship anywhere in the World, though I am not responsible for VAT or other import taxes and fees you may incur via your local customs office.
UK Buyers specifically: Anything worth more than £15 which is imported to the UK from a non-EU country is subject to VAT at 20% of the item value, plus an additional £8 handling fee. You will likely be required to pay this upon receipt of your package. This hefty tax is imposed by your government. I have absolutely nothing to do with it, nor am I responsible for paying it. I am also not able to mark your item as “gift” or mark it at a lower value, as that would be considered fraud. Please take this into consideration when making your purchase.
I am happy to accept Paypal, Etsy gift cards, and all major credit cards via direct checkout. On custom orders and made-to-order items, I do not begin physical work on the project until after payment has been received in full.
Returns & exchanges
LOSS / DAMAGE: If for some reason your purchase is lost or damaged in the mail, I will be happy to provide a replacement if applicable, or just refund the monetary value of the item and all shipping costs. This replacement / refund will be given once the damaged item is returned and verified to be the same exact item sold, or if postal tracking can not find the missing item. ( In some cases, a photo of the damaged item is all that is needed, rather than physically returning it to me.) Insurance is purchased on all orders over a certain dollar amount. In those cases I will follow the guidelines of the insurance provider in issuing returns/replacements. This policy on refunds for loss/damage applies to ALL items sold through my store EG: Stocked items, made-to-order items, and custom orders.
OTHER RETURNS: There are typically no refunds on custom orders that I can not re-stock in my store, (such as a customized illustration of your own trademarked character, items personalized with names or dates, etc.) Otherwise, for the vast majority of my stocked items and made-to-order items; If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, even just "buyer's remorse", you may return it for a refund of the item value, not including shipping costs. Item must be new / unused and in the same exact condition as when you received it. Return must be initiated within five days of receipt, according to tracking. You must contact me before returning your item.

If you have a concern about your order, please feel free to e-mail, call or text at any time. My e-mail and cell phone number are provided with your purchase receipt, your shipping notification and also inside your package.
