This page covers my shipping times and estimated transit times for all orders. Please check this page for updated information about transit and shipping times to your country or region.
I ship internationally and use USPS. USPS will typically hand off your parcel to the local or regional postal carrier where you live once it leaves the United States.
PACKING AND HAND OFF TIMES
I pack everything personally, and can only fulfill orders in the evenings. I typically pack and send out orders within 3-8 business days, sometimes during busy shopping seasons, your order may be packed within 4-10 business days, but I always try to shorten that fulfillment time by as much as possible. Some unforeseen events (such as bad weather) may delay your order being packed as well. All orders, are packed in the order with which they were placed unless the order is an "Express Shipping" order.
Fulfilled orders are usually sent to USPS the same day or early the next day once they are packed. You will receive an email notification with a tracking code once your order has been packed. If you do not receive this email, check your spam folder or get in touch with me to inquire about the status of your order.
Orders with Express Shipping will be moved to the front of the packing queue and will be packed within 1-2 business days and be sent USPS Priority (1-3 day service). Express Shipping is only offered for domestic orders.
Transit Time is the time it takes USPS or the postal carrier in your region to carry and deliver your package to you. The following are estimated transit times for generalized regions around the world.
Some of the transit times above are very lengthy due to the speed and operation of the country's or region's postal system.
LONGER THAN NORMAL TRANSIT TIMES
I do my very best to pack and send out orders within my 1-8 business days shipping window. Unfortunately, once a package leaves my hands or is transferred to USPS, I no longer have control over its journey. If your package appears to be taking longer than normal please get in touch with me and I will attempt to find out where it is.
HOLIDAY SEASON TRANSIT TIMES
Once an order is passed off to USPS, I no longer have control over its speed or delivery method. During the Holiday season, you may find transit times for your parcel to be slower than normal. For USA customers, it's best to add 3-7 business days to your order if you need your package by a certain date. For International customers, you may need to add 2-3 weeks to your order if you need it by a certain date.
I offer eco-friendly packaging by request. If you would like me to minimize the amount of plastic or extra materials used when packing your order, please check the "Eco-Friendly Packaging" option at the bottom of your shopping cart window. Typically, my eco-friendly packaging options will leave out all plastics except for the poly bubble mailer, which is made of recycled materials and can be either recycled or re-used.
I keep my shop open during all holidays and will pack and send out orders as soon as the post office will accept them. I am limited by postal holidays, if your order happens to fall on one of those, your order will be sent to the post office the day after USPS accepts packages again. The following are common postal holidays that are observed by USPS...
I'm located in Florida and severe storms may cause some delays in my ability to ship your order within the usual shipping window of 1-5 business days.
In the event that I cannot ship your order on time, I will endeavor to let you know as soon as possible and will ship your order as soon as the storm clears out and the post office reopens.
USPS provided tracking codes only work reliably within the United States. You can use the USPS tracking tool to find out where your parcel is located: USPS Tracking Tool
Though International orders may receive a tracking code, they are usually not accurate and are sometimes never updated. For International customers, please do not rely on the provided tracking codes as an indication of where your parcel is in its journey. If you require a reliable tracking code as an international customer, please get in touch with me and we can arrange for a solution. :-)
Express shipping is offered for USA or Domestic orders only. The Express Shipping option does not have a free tier. If chosen, your order will be moved to the front of the packing queue and sent out via. USPS Priority (1-3 day transit time).
OTHER UPGRADED SHIPPING
I can offer additional upgraded shipping options for domestic and international customers on a case-by-case basis. Please get in touch with me for options to upgrade the shipping on your purchase. In general, the following upgraded shipping options can be offered.
Please Note: upgraded shipping options are not covered under the free shipping special. This means that even though your order may be above $40 (Domestic) or $60 (International), opting for an upgraded shipping option will require that you pay for the shipping upgrade.
Most of the shipping upgrades offered above can be very expensive, especially for international orders. I will do my best to make the package as small and light as possible to ensure the best pricing.
I declare the costs of the items on the customs forms as accurately as possible. Failure to declare accurate prices on customs forms can result in heavy fines for the seller.
It is the customer's responsibility to pay any customs fees that may be charged on the package. Unfortunately, customs fees are outside of my ability to control and are the jurisdiction of your country's customs service.
If your parcel is held for inspection by your country's customs service, it may be delayed in reaching you by 1-3 weeks depending upon the customs service inspecting it. I typically request international customers whose parcels are delayed to wait an additional 2-3 weeks to allow customs to finish their inspection and forward the package on to its destination.
If your tracking number states that the order was delivered, but it's not at your door then one of these scenarios might be the cause:
I will typically request we wait an additional week for USA orders, or two weeks for international orders to give the postal service time to deliver the parcel. Sometimes the post office is running late with deliveries or may have accidentally misrouted your parcel and just needs some additional time to deliver the parcel properly.
