Zip or postal code

Items are shipped from Ontario, Canada, via Canada Post, Monday through Friday. Orders placed after 10AM on Friday, and through the weekend will ship Monday.

Delivery to Canada and the U.S. is 7-14 business days on average. Occasionally, shipping time is longer.
Most of my packages to the U.S. ship as Light Packet or Small Packet, Air Mail. This is the most economical rate, but it has no tracking.

If it is lightweight enough to send as lettermail then it will be sent by airmail. If not, your parcel will be sent by International Surface Packet and it could take at least 6 weeks and up to 3 months for arrival. This is the least expensive method. If you wish to upgrade to shipping with tracking, please write a message during check-out, and WaveSong will send you an invoice to cover the significantly extra cost.


I accept PayPal or credit card payment through Etsy's Direct Checkout.
