🛍️OC MERCH SERVICE- Button & Sticker Making

Posted 2 months, 5 days ago (Edited 1 day, 8 hours ago) by IIDX

NEW as of 10/6/2021: New sequins have been added + an overhaul of images!
NEW as of 9/13/2021: I now offer glitter buttons!

Please note that shipping to Australia and New Zealand via USPS is currently suspended as of October 2021! More info and all countries affected here: https://about.usps.com/newsroom/service-alerts/international/welcome.htm
I can only ship stickers in an envelope until they reopen.


Hi, I like to make merch of my own OCs so I'm extending the offer to make merch of your own OCs for you! I currently offer buttons, sequin/glitter buttons, and stickers.
Examples of my work and reviews are available on my Etsy store! I also have a FAQ and other good things over on there. I advise reading up on my shop policies! All written there applies to these orders.

If this is successful enough I'll consider branching out to charms/keychains, accepting orders when I place them to my manufacturer for my own charms. This will be a much longer wait since I usually order 2-3 times a year, depending on conventions/sales. Examples of my charms are over here! I like to do glitter/clear epoxy and rainbow acrylic finishes.
If you'd like to be notified of when I potentially open custom charms, feel free to fill out the pinglist form!

I have a form you can fill out to make things easier to order! My preferred method of contact for file sharing and processing things with you is Discord. Please DM me for my handle! Otherwise email and toyhouse messaging works just fine too. Contact info is available on my website.

Here's my equipment!

General info for both:

  • I can use any artworks you provide! Transparent is highly preferred for stickers. Transparent artwork for buttons will be given a solid/patterned background, you can let me choose or provide a solid version. Non-transparent art for stickers will be cut in shape with the canvas (square). I will be doing all the template work, but you can let me know where you want things generally placed (IE zooming in on a face).
  • I don't have a CYMK printer, which shouldn't be much of an issue, but very very neon colors like cyan will come out more like an electric blue. See this listing as an example. If you're unsatisfied with a test printing's colors, let me know! I'll do my best to make it work for you. RGB color and 300 DPI files are preferred, but if you don't know how those work, no worries! It shouldn't have a majorly different outcome.
  • If it's a friend's OC please ask them if it's ok! If it's a gift, it's not needed, but I cannot provide refunds if it's unwanted.
  • OCs and fanart are OK, but I cannot make things in the "gray-market", which are bootleg copies of official or fan-made merch. Essentially, if an artist or company sells buttons with said image on it already, I won't make copies of them. Please ask the artist for permission if you can get their fanart on things if it's not your art!
  • Pay with PayPal invoices (goods & services) or custom Etsy listings made for you only! Feel free to ask for either. Standard PayPal and Etsy TOS applies. Etsy accepts PayPal, credit/debit cards, etc.
  • Prices are in USD, I ship from California, USA.
  • Since these are custom, I cannot accept returns/exchanges! In the case of your item being returned to sender, I'll need the full postage paid again. I'm also not responsible for customs costs. If your items come in damaged from transit I'm more than happy to send a replacement!
  • I'll be shipping these out every few days once they're made! Please be aware I'm chronically ill and disabled so there might be a production delay of 1-3 days due to hospital visits or the like.
  • If you're unhappy with any of the tests at any point or if they're defective, I'll replace them for you and fix them. I aim to give out quality products & accommodate.
  • When paying with custom Etsy listings, your order can be combined with anything else from my store without additional shipping costs! Pre-orders are exempt unless you're ok with waiting.
  • Orders 10 USD and over shipped in bubble mailers come with free candy 👀 button orders will also get free button(s) of my Boys (see below)

Feel free to ask for any of them in particular or I'll choose which boy you're assigned.

Process:

  • Add me on Discord, email me, etc. Basically say you're interested! You can also fill out my form here.
  • Provide the files and let me know what you'd like.
  • I'll make a custom Etsy listing for you to buy or send a PayPal invoice.
  • Once paid, I'll do a test run and show pictures, and if you're ok with how it looks I'll send it out ASAP!
  • If you'd like to leave a review in the comments it's much appreciated!

Stickers:

  • Printed on glossy water-resistant sticker paper. Will withstand the elements a lot, but not suitable for underwater use where they can get soaked! These have withstood all my rip tests without a tear.
  • Can be sized from super small to 5x6 inches large. Average large sized stickers are 3x3 inches and are my standard size/rate. I cut these with a Cricut machine now, but most of my picture examples are hand-cut. They cannot be borderless.
  • The cheapest to ship internationally and domestically!
For more examples of stickers, here's a direct link to my shop's sticker section. Note the shine in the videos!

Price: Starting at 3 USD per sticker for the size I have in these images! Smaller will be cheaper and larger will cost more. Maximum 6 USD. Please ask about bulk order pricing!

Stickers have a minimum of 2 stickers per order.

Shipping costs: I offer mailing these in a 5x6 greeting card for reduced costs! There's no tracking for this option. However, I have never lost an envelope in the postal system this way with hundreds of orders.

  • 0.75 USD Domestic shipping (USA)
  • 1.25 USD international shipping
Normal tracked bubble mailer shipping:
  • 3.95 USD Domestic shipping (USA)
  • 8.95 USD Canada shipping
  • 10.95 USD International shipping
  • Orders including buttons and stickers together will be shipped this way.
Price is flat-rate per order. I ship USPS First-Class in a bubble mailer for the second option. I unfortunately cannot ship to Germany due to VerpackG laws.

International shipping includes tracking to these countries for free:
Australia, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, France, Gibraltar, Hong Kong, Iceland, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Thailand, United Kingdom, Ireland.
Anywhere else will require a shipping upgrade to Priority Mail International for tracking.

Buttons:

  • Size 1.5 inches. Standard small size! Has a normal pinback closure. I make these with my own professional grade button pressing machine.
  • I cannot make these smaller or larger, please refer to only my small buttons. I'm considering also buying a larger button press in the future.
  • Best for zooming in on faces. If you have a couple, they might have to be zoomed out, but it works best when they have their faces next to each-other (example here). I can also make a matching set of 2 to avoid squeezing them in!
  • Since these use artwork in a circle, be aware that squares will have corners cut out! A tiny bit of the button artwork will wrap around the sides, so please don't make detail go right up to the very edge unless you're ok with it potentially cutting off.
  • If your art is super detailed, be aware the finest details won't be as crisp due to the small size.
  • I can also add sequins, see below for details!
For more examples of buttons, here's a direct link to my shop's button section.

Prices:

  • 3 USD for two buttons
  • 6 USD for five buttons
  • 15 USD for ten buttons
  • Bulk orders - please ask! I can be your manufacturer to sell these buttons in your own store.
  • Pricing for anything in-between those numbers works in increments. (IE: 7 buttons is 6 USD for five buttons + 3 USD for two buttons = 9 USD total)
Shipping costs:
  • 3.95 USD Domestic shipping (USA)
  • 8.95 USD Canada shipping

Sequin buttons:

These are all hand sequined. I glue them on individually! They're securely under the button's mylar (plastic) shell between the artwork, so they'll never fall off. I have a variety of sequins to choose from!
Here's an Etsy listing with a video of them shining.

  • Sequins can be mixed and matched. If you want precise placement let me know, otherwise I'll be doing it generally on more empty parts of the artwork to fill in (see examples).
  • The blend sequins have different colors, so if you have a certain shade in mind more than the others let me know, otherwise I'll use all shades.
  • They will cover the artwork, so if you want precise placement keep that in mind!
  • Sequins are numbered for ease of ordering!
Prices (as an add-on per button): 
  • +0.50 USD to add 1-4 sequins per button
  • +1.00 USD to add 5+ sequins per button
  • Please ask about prices for more complex, button-covering patterns!

Glitter buttons:

These are all hand-glittered. The glitter is securely under the button's mylar (plastic) shell between the artwork, so it'll never fall off. I have a variety of glitter to choose from!
Holo dots shine silver and rainbow, and the pink/blue holo are translucent and shine their respective color.

  • Glitter cannot be glued down, so the placement won't be as precise as the sequins.
  • Works best on solid backgrounds! It'll partially cover the artwork.
Prices (as an add-on per button): 
  • +0.50 USD per button

Froggychairzone

Hello! I wanted to ask if no tracking international shipping for stickers is still 1.25 USD for Chile, I wanted to ask first because usually shipping to my country costs over $15 dollars for even small stickers and that's why I don't really buy anything physical haha, ty!

IIDX

Froggychairzone it is! I can send sticker envelopes anywhere internationally for 1.25 USD, so long as you don’t mind it having no tracking!

Froggychairzone

Okay, tysm for telling me <3 I'll try to order soon
