    Want to have your scissors personalized? Cathe aka The Floss Queen, can engrave/mark your scissors with a name or initials. Typically the engraving is done on the section between the blade and the handle. Some scissors, like the Kohana, have a longer section, others a just enough room for initials.

    You can indicate if you want a block or script font, or you can let Cathe decide what works best. Also indicate what name or initials you want on the scissors.

    If you want a cipher (2 intertwined letters) you can select that as well. See the Cipher tab for how to select the 2 letters for the cipher. 

    When placing the order include a description of the scissors if you are sending more than one pair to us. Print out and include a copy of the order or at least the order number in the package when you send the scissors to us. They will be engraved and shipped and back to you.

    If you are ordering scissors from the online catalog, just add this as an order item and make a note that it's for scissors you are purchasing.

    Cathe can also mark/engrave tweezers such as the Pinzette. If you wish to send those just include that as the description for the "scissors".

    A cipher is made up of two letters, usually your first and last name, which interlock. The cipher alphabet used has a wide letter and narrow letter, 1 of each per cipher. You will need to indicate which letter you want for the WIDE letter and which for the NARROW.

    As you’ll see below, it makes a difference on how the cipher looks. While we’ve used the AB combination for the example, also included is a photo with Cathe's cipher of CR. In this case she chose a Wide R and Narrow C.

    This photo is of a needlekeep but the cipher is the same regardless of size or material. 

    We are open Tue-Sat 11am-3pm PT for orders, pickup and appointments. We are not able to accept Expedited orders at the present time. Many of our vendors are still taking longer to supply us due to increased demand and supply chain issues. If you only want items we have in stock, please mark your order Ship Partial Cancel Incomplete Items. While we would love to be able to give firm ETAs for items we are out of, that's not possible with the disruption COVID-19 continues to cause across the supply chain.

    We hope that everyone stays safe and we truly appreciate your support.

    Russian customers: We are unable to accept orders being sent to Russia or using a payment method with that as the country of origin due to sanctions.

    EU & UK customers: We are no longer shipping orders less than £135 (~$170USD) to the UK or €150 (~$165USD) to the EU due to VAT requirements imposed by the EU & UK governments. If you are in the EU or UK and you order is over £135/€150, we can send it an you will be responsible for VAT when it is delivered. For orders under that amount, we would suggest having us send it to a Freight Forwarder in the US, which can then handle the requiste paperwork for VAT. We hope the UK & EU governments will adjust the rules to limit its scope to large scale businesses, but we're not confident that will happen.
