I will ship using USPS, the least expensive method for a reasonable amount of time-- Usually First Class Mail. I am willing to use another method if you request it. (like Priority Mail.) Insurance is optional, but strongly recommended, especially for multiple purchases. International Buyers: You are responsible for any taxes or fees your country may impose.
I prefer Paypal for payment, but will also accept credit, Etsy gift cards, cashier's check, money order or personal check. If you intend to pay with any sort of check or MO please let me know.
I always ship quickly - usually within 1-2 business days of cleared payment.
Returns & exchanges
I always package my items securely and carefully, and therefore am not responsible for damages/loss incurred after my package is handed over at the post office. But If you item arrives damaged or you are reasonably unsatisfied, send it back to me for a refund of item price (sorry, no shipping refunds).
In the case of a shipping overage , I will refund the excess in amounts over one dollar.
I am happy to consider custom work and trades. Please contact me. I don't do wholesale or consignment, because my operation is too small. I make unique items from unique materials. Nothing will be reproducible "exactly" or in very large quantity with the quantity exception of map and music envelopes-- I do have TONS of them... ;)
