Shipping & policies
Multiple item orders will benefit from combined shipping. If this does not calculate automatically during checkout (Etsy often OVER calculates on multiple item orders), rest assured that you will receive any shipping overage $1+ in a refund, or you can reach out via conversations for a shipping estimate. Be sure to include your zip/country code and the items you wish to purchase so we can calculate the weight of your order.
All orders are shipped within 1 business days of transaction unless additional processing/creation time noted in listing; please note that we are a one person shop, and usually ship 6 days a week). USPS Priority orders include insurance up to $100. USPS First Class or First Class International do not include insurance: insurance on your order is extra and optional, please reach out to add to your order, we are not liable for items lost or damaged in transit by USPS.
If you are looking for an order urgently, please choose a faster method like USPS Priority (2-3 business days within U.S.) or USPS Express (Overnight business usually within U.S.) at additional shipping cost to buyer. I highly recommend sending a conversation if you need an item urgently, as that will help me realize sooner that your order is urgent, and I will accommodate whenever I can. Please message with any questions or special requests!
If you are interested in purchasing and shipping outside of the U.S., we ship everywhere! Please note that customs forms will be filled out with the items and values from your order, and buyer is responsible for any customs due. International shipping can be pricey and is often delayed. Status of USPS First Class International is often inaccurate/non-existent once it leaves the U.S.: I highly recommend choosing USPS Priority International (quoted as 8 business days) or Express International (quoted as 3-5 business days) at checkout if you need the order quickly and live overseas. I am not responsible for items lost or damaged in transit; insurance is included on Priority or Express but not included on First Class International, buyer optional and costs approx. $1-2+ depending total dollar amount, and would cover these sorts of losses; please reach out via convo to add insurance to your order and I will set up a custom listing. USPS can often get it to receiving country quickly, but in country customs often causes long delays.
Please note that all orders returned to the shop for incomplete or inaccurate addresses buyer will need to pay shipping again with an updated/corrected address provided, before it ships out again. Alternately a refund (minus the original shipping cost) if item is received back in original condition, can be requested.
