Shop Policies

Glitter Bug Design Studio is a brand of Melodie Hand. Payments will appear on your bank statement as either Glitter Bug Design or Melodie Hand.


We want all of our customers to be happy with their purchases.  If you purchase one of our regularly stocked products (not custom – see below regarding custom products) and are not happy with it, please contact us as soon as possible.

We do not offer returns, refunds, or exchanges on custom orders unless there has been an in-house error.  Custom orders would be considered a product that you have requested a specific blend of colors, embellishments, names, phrases, logo, etc that is outside of what our regularly stocked products are.  Custom orders may also include products that have custom names or sizes, even if the product itself is a stock item.  If you are sent the wrong product we will correct the problem right away.

Shipping Procedures

There is a minimum of 48 business hour turn-around time for processing and shipping in-stock items.  Custom products may take up to 2-4 weeks for turn-around (tumblers may take 4 weeks depending upon design and custom requirements).  Shipping times vary due to the size of the project and the type of resin/coating we need to use. This is due to the varying curing times required for each type of product. We make every effort to get orders processed and shipped ASAP.  However, at certain times of the year (ex. Holidays) delivery times may be extended due to higher demand and longer shipping times from shipping carriers.  In addition, if in-stock AND custom orders are placed on the same order they will all ship at one time once the custom items are ready.

Please be sure to provide a shipping address that generally has someone present that can accept delivery.  We are not responsible for packages that are left outside by any mail/package carrier.  Nor are we responsible for packages that are not picked up or alternate delivery arrangements made once notice is left by the carrier about an attempted delivery of a package.

Any errors must be reported within 7 business days of delivery of the package (we use tracking information to determine delivery dates of orders).  Please check your packages carefully when they arrive.

We generally use USPS Priority Mail or First Class with tracking information. However, we reserve the right to use the carrier service of our choice.  If a specific carrier is requested additional fees may be charged.  Shipping costs are calculated based on realtime USPS rates that are calculated based on the shipping weight of the order. 


We are not accepting wholesale orders at this time.

International Orders

At this time we are only shipping to addresses in the United States.  We are not currently shipping in territories of the USA (Guam, Puerto Rico, or Virgin Islands).  And we are also not currently shipping to Canada.  But, we will keep you posted as these options become available.

Payment Types Accepted

We currently accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover credit cards, checks, and money orders.  Cash and checks are accepted at local events where we are set up as vendors.  Orders are not shipped without payment in full.  Custom orders will not begin production without payment in full.  If making payment via check, your order will not begin production or ship until payment funds have cleared our bank.
