~MADE TO WERE DISCLAIMER
By purchasing you confirm you are an adult that is 18 years of age or older and have agreed to our terms.
All of our silicone products are made with body safe, 100% platinum cure silicone per our manufacture Smooth-On, with silicone pigments and/or cosmetic grade mica pigments for coloration. We also use cosmetic grade mica shimmer in some of our products. Any mica powders used in our products is ethically sourced. All products are heavily researched before using in our products to be sure it is safe for you! Customer safety is our priority and if we wouldn't use it, or don't feel it would be safe to use, we don't sell it.
Products are made first by 3D modeling, then 3D printing, and going through sanding and smoothing techniques prior to making it to a silicone mold. None of our products are a life cast, nor ever will be, and are all artistically rendered.
All of our products are finished by hand as well as poured by hand and as a result, they can have small surface imperfections, print texture, divots, pigment freckles under the surface, and uneven trimming. We consider these to be normal imperfections. These imperfections are purely cosmetic and will not affect the use or safety of the toys. If you are wanting perfectly smooth surfaces, our toys may not be for you, though we try our hardest to get them as smooth as we can. Any problems beyond the normal imperfections will be labeled as ‘Oddball’ or ‘Flop’ and described in the listing information.
All mini-products, add-ons, and other silicone products that are not considered to be an adult novelty are ‘Oddballs’.
*For reference for our shop, an 'Oddball' is a minor flaw that could be from a cosmetic/ color issue we did not like, any small surface imperfection that we feel is beyond the norm that does not impact the use of the product. Usually, our oddballs do not have major cleaning issues. We discount oddballs anywhere from 5% up to 15% off.
A 'Flop' would be a product with defects such as medium to large surface imperfections that we believe would require more than normal care and cleaning. These could be 15%-40%off.
All discounts are at our discretion and on an individual product basis. *
At this time, the silicone firmness we mainly sell our models in is soft (shore hardness 00-30) and medium (shore hardness 00-50). We rarely, but on occasion sell firm (10A), but it can cause issues demolding and do not use often in our models. Soft (00-30) can be slightly tacky and has a similar softness of a gel shoe insert or body tissue. It is very squishy and sometimes bigger toys can have issues standing and sway more. Medium (00-50) is still squishy but can feel almost like a rubber eraser or an unflexed muscle. Firm (10A), feels like a flexed, tight muscle and does not have a lot of squish to it. With that being all said, since this is a handmade craft, there can be some variations to the firmness. This can can be because the size of the toy, (smaller toys will feel generally softer, and the bigger you go, the less soft it feels), temperature, humidity, pigments used (the more pigments/glows, the firmer) and even the silicone differences from the manufacturer. All our toys will be labeled to the hardness they were poured in! *We now also pour in 00-20 (Which we call super soft!) This silicone is super squishy and tacky. Mainly this will be for squishes, packers, penetrables, and models that won’t fall completely over.
We also rarely use a newer silicone product called Near Clear!*
*Near Clear is a new product by Smooth-On, it’s certified skin safe/platinum cure just like the other silicone we use currently! (We will label products made with Near Clear. These come in 00-31 and 00-45 shore hardness. Please note we have found 00-45 to be more firm than 00-50 and label it as Medium Firm). The base price is slightly more than its counterparts due to the higher price of this silicone and the time it takes to make! Here are some special notations regarding NC!
NC is extra translucent and is more noticeable in models with glossy finishing. UV usually is highly vivid! That being said, this silicone is a bit more finicky to care for and to make. Leaving indents, seeing normal mold imperfections, and discoloration are easier with this product. Multiple bubbles are common to be found on the flat bases of NC and won’t be considered a flop. This is normal due to the nature of this silicone.
Some other toy makers have mentioned noticing yellow discoloration or cloudiness after boiling excessively. Sometimes, silicone may remain cloudy for hours to a few days before returning to normal after boiling if not permanently discolored. Also, oil-based lube may cause discoloration as well. If unsure to risk discoloring due to boiling, we can advise using silicone safe toy cleaner, soap and water, or a 10% bleach to water solution to thoroughly clean toys. (Do NOT boil bleach!)
On a final note, as with our other silicone, do NOT use silicone-based lube.
Our products are made in a smoke-free home. We also have cats that are NOT allowed in the studio, but there is a possibility of a stray cat hair to be on the shipping package no matter if they are not around the product whatsoever. If you have strong allergy concerns in this regard, please do not buy from this store! With that in mind, because of static, lint particles, debris, etc. may be also found on the shipping package or product though they are washed before sending your way. This is why we recommend and please ask of you to still wash your toy before you play with it!
All of our products for adult use are washed with gentle soap and boiled before putting in our heat sealed bags. (There are some products that are only washed such as mini products and add-ons like ‘Dickles’ and‘ Squish Woofs’. We will state when they are not boiled and usually this products are not intended for adult or internal usage!) There may be a faint smell that is on your product, or water marks from the wash; this is from soap that should go away with a good warm wash and air dry!
Again, even though we try our best, we still advise to wash the product before any sort of use. Our studio is not a sterile environment though we keep as sanitary as possible!
Important: All products are intended and sold as personal novelty use only. Made To Were is NOT liable in any way, shape, or form for how you choose to use our products, or for any discomfort or injury that occurs through use. We also cannot advise how to use our products; please use good judgment!
By ordering or purchasing from our site, in person, private sell, or on Etsy, you are agreeing with our terms to hold Made To Were, its officers and employees, free from and against any claims, liability, losses, costs, damages, or expenses (including attorney’s fees) arising from my use of or participation in this service, use of product, or the information contained therein as stated above. You also are confirming you are 18 years of ago or older when you make a purchase.
Please bare in mind that the ONLY place on the internet we are selling currently is our website you're on now!
We are not in any contract with any other business/entity. Replication and redistribution of models without our explicit permission will be pursued with legal action.
MTW is fine with private trades and or reselling to another private party. We do not allow this commercially and or to be shipped to countries we do not service. (Please see the shipping section for more details on those countries).
MTW, at this time, does not have an ambassador program for content creators nor are we trading free products for reviews.
Etsy and or Shopify's Fraud Protection also may cancel your order if payment was declined or any of their own reasons. (Sometimes it will cancel if it knows your IP address is from a country we do not sell to.) Usually, they will send you, the customer, an email as to why they canceled an order. Made To Were is not responsible for ANY automatic cancelations Etsy or Shopify makes! We assume it's for a good reason, but bare in mind when Etsy actually cancels your order, it will be put back up for sale automatically by Etsy and there is NO HOLDING.
At this time, we have a limit on orders when we have a new inventory drop (Unless stated otherwise). This limit is in effect for 24 hours from our 'drop' and is as follows:
Dickle Pack Limit: 5 Per Address
Squish Limit Per Model (Like Werewoofs,woofs and any future squish): 5 Per Address
Egg Limit: 5 Per Address
Zayn: 5 Per Address
Powell's Paw: 2 Per Address
If your order goes above these limits, we will message you advising our current limits and will give you the option on which models you want to keep. If there is no response to the message in 24 hours, your order will be canceled and put back in our shop to sell. For more details about this limit, please see our page going into more detail: http://madetowere.com/pages/announcements
We’d be happy to update your address so long as it’s within 12 hours of your original order. Just fill out the 'contact us' form or email us at email@example.com.
We, however, cannot update country it’s being shipped to if that was incorrect.
We do confidential and discreet “Plain Brown Box” Shipping. Sometimes, it may be a standard USPS Priority box or bubble mailer (if small squish/egg/small merch). Either way, there is no indication on what's inside. Return label will state “MTW” as the sender and our PO BOX.
We now ship world wide with a few exceptions!* PLEASE BE ADVISED IF YOU ARE ORDERING INTERNATIONALLY, YOU ARE ORDERING AT YOUR OWN RISK. We are not to be responsible for custom/VAT fees nor responsible for lost packages.
The customs label will read "Silicone Sculpture" or "Decorative Rubber" as description. Please be aware that shipping internationally may take weeks to a month+ to arrive. Sometimes, the tracking may not even be updated until it reached the destination country. We ask to have a bit a patience when ordering from afar!
We also are not responsible for shipping issues that happen due to customer error, such as an incorrect address provided, nor are we responsible for lost packages, errors on the USPS' part. Once it’s shipped, it is unfortunately out of our control. We will also try our hardest to have products shipped within 2-4 business days after purchase! Typically we ship on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Please check out https://www.usps.com/help/claims.htm if you feel like there's an issue with delivery. It will guide you through how to file a claim and the time frames.
We as sellers see the same tracking info as you do! If there’s been no response from USPS from a package issue after sometime, feel free to contact us and we can see if there’s anything more we may be able to assist with insurance wise etc.
Please understand due to the stress of the postal service, we cannot guarantee when an item will arrive and may be longer than expected.
We also want to add that we do offer free shipping (Domestic US only) for orders totaling over $150!
*These are the places we do not ship. We also do not intend to ship to reshipping facilities. Please do not ask us to make exceptions and we may cancel an order/void all possible refunds if we suspect if going to any of these countries listed:
Afghanistan, Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Argentina, Bahamas, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belize, Bermuda, Bolivia, Bonaire, Canary Island, Cayman Islands, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Curacao, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, French Guiana, French Polynesia, Germany, Ghana, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jamaica, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Lesotho, Libya, Malaysia, Mexico, Montserrat, Morocco, Namibia, Nicaragua, Nigeria, North Korea, Oman, Pakistan, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Portugal, Qatar, Rwanda, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Korea, Sri Lanka, St. Barthelemy, St. Eustatius, St. Kitts/Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Martin, St. Vicente, Suriname, Tanzania, Taiwan, Thailand, Trinidad & Tobago, Turks and Caicos, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands, Ukraine, Virgin Islands (UK), & Yemen.
If your country was NOT listed on here but it seems we are not shipping to them at this time, it is because USPS has suspended it's services to your country. You can check out https://about.usps.com/newsroom/service-alerts/international/welcome.htm for details!
We now accept cancelations! We will gladly cancel your order within 1 hour of ordering ONLY. (UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE. Check our announcement page! Usually we DO NOT ALLOW CANCELLATIONS IN NOVEMBER/SALES/ETC.) Please be for certain you are reading thoroughly, and clicking on what you want to order! Just message us if you would like to cancel and that locks you in! We may not get back to your message ASAP, but so long as you messaged us within that hour (thanks timestamps!), you are fine and consider it done! UPDATE AS OF 1/25/22: We now charge a 10% restocking/processing fee when canceling orders. (Meaning we'll refund all but 10% of your order total.) This is due to a non-refundable processing fee we as the sellers are charged when you pay now on the website vs Etsy prior would refund the seller the fee.
If we suspect you are abusing our cancel policy due to "holding" an item, we have right to decline future orders and block your account from the shop.
PRODUCTS DO NOT HAVE A WARRANTY.
Refunds may be possible on a case by case basis for ONLY production issues that was undocumented at the time of the sale that is beyond a normal imperfection due to the handmade quality. Again, this is the ONLY reason we would issue a refund.
We will not refund items sold with an ‘Oddball’ or ‘Flop’ reason, as the flaws have been noted in the listing and sold AS IS.
Please inspect your toy thoroughly before opening the bag. ONCE THE BAG HAS BEEN OPENED, WE WILL NOT ISSUE A REFUND. If there is an issue with your item, and it’s still in the bag, please take photos and contact us as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any add-on item, or any product created by us that is not considered to be an adult novelty (i.e.dickles, woofs, etc.), is NOT considered for a refund. Also any item purchased by us with the intent of resale (i.e vibrators we may sell from a 3rd party company etc.) is not considered for a refund. Any merchandise created by us or for us such as embroidered items, patches, pins, stickers, bags, plushies, etc. are not considered for a refund. These are all sold as-is and sales are final.
Due to the nature of the products, we generally do NOT accept returns except in serious cases authorized by us. In the rare case we receive a returned product, we do NOT put for sell again and is inspected & disposed of. If in the happenstance we decline a return but a rare full refund is warranted, we will ask you to destroy the product in a timely manner and after proof is received, a refund is distributed.
If, for any reason, you ship the product back to our PO Box without our authorization, there will be NO REFUND ISSUED even if you advise the box was never opened. Again, we are serious about our no refund policy unless there is a unnatural flaw in the product.
All refunds are at our own discretion; beyond 1 week after confirmed delivery we typically do not consider refunds.
We reserve the legal right to cancel/refund orders/block or refuse service to any individual at any time for any reason. Breaking TOS, such as being underage, will result is an automatic ban and will NOT be removed from our ban list even after becoming a legal adult. Chargebacks result in a permanent ban as well as shipping to countries we do not service.
Any person(s) banned is NOT shared with others/other businesses and is a private matter only to this store. We do not share private information period.
While banning is something we never actively want to do, we also do not stand for harassment or bigotry of any kind.
