Grumpy Paladin Studios is located in Illinois, USA but we do not have a physical storefront.


A "seconds" pin is a noticeably flawed  or "B grade" pin that is sold at a discount. These are all still functional and wearable pins, but do not meet our high standards for a full priced "standard quality" product. Seconds pins are perfect for people that wear their pins and want to save a little money. 

Flaws can include: 
-Obvious scratches or marring.
-Multiple surface bubbles or dents in enamel.
-Low or overfilled enamel.
-Areas of no fill or incorrect fill.
-Dust or lint embedded in enamel.
-Discolored or slightly tarnished plating.
-Large areas with incomplete plating.
-Uneven glitter or glow.

Please note that seconds pins do not come on the original backing cards.
You cannot request to view the imperfections on seconds quality pins prior to purchase.
All sales are final with seconds quality.

Our enamel pin products are not safe for children under the age of 8. Enamel pins are small, sharp, and can become a choking hazard for unsupervised children. Please take caution.

Pre-orders generally take 4-6 weeks to produce. Any orders which contain a "preorder" item will only ship once the preorder item has arrived at our facility. Expected arrival dates for preorder items are listed on their respective product pages, however delays in production do sometimes occur. Any delays in preorder processing will be announced on social media.

If you would like your non-preorder items shipped to you separately, you'll need to make two separate orders  otherwise your order will ship only once all items have become available.

We do offer design services on a case by case basis. Please contact to see if we have any availability for design services.

Preorder payments fund the production and manufacturing costs for the creation of these "preorder" items.

Once shipped, domestic orders generally take about 2-5 business days to arrive and can be tracked via or the link recieved in your shipping confirmation.

Once shipped, international orders generally take 7-30 business days to arrive. While all international orders come with a tracking number, the consistency of tracking updates after it departs the USA is entirely dependent on your country's postal system.

After shipment, orders can be tracked via USPS, but please be sure to check your national postal service's website for additional tracking updates once it has arrived within your country.

Economy International: If you have chosen 'economy' International shipping, please be aware that in order to keep the cost as low as possible, we have partnered with a third party shipping company which consolidates international packages prior to departure from the United States. These packages will first be shipped to the sorting station where they will be re-labeled for final transport. This extra step in delivery increase transit time and can also result in delayed tracking for up to a week.
