These are new plain roofing slates with holes punched as shown in the photo, and have nice corners and a traditional chamfered (chipped) edge. They are first quality roofing slate. THESE UNDECORATED SLATES WILL SHIP IMMEDIATELY OR WITHIN SEVERAL DAYS.
The thickness is about a quarter inch, they vary slightly. See separate listings for other sized slates.
I can only ship about two or three per box in most cases based on weight and the type of box I need to use for your location to assure the best cost effective means and allowing for enough cushioning . Keep in mind that due to shipping stresses I usually can only ship one size together in a box.
Shipping discounts are given automatically for multiples and I will send you a refund it there is a considerable overage, but I do not make shipping adjustments beforehand.
Slate is a bit heavy and needs very good care in cushioning so that is reflective in the shipping cost. I ship most slates by priority mail.
***Unless your item listing says READY TO SHIP, your expected ship time for mailboxes is 3-6weeks, slates 2-3 weeks, candles 1-2 weeks unless I have your colors in stock. During peak spring season March through July expect the full wait time. Shipping is charged by flat rate, slates and candles will ship by priority mail and some mailboxes and other items also. If you need to request and item through expedited shipping, convo me before your purchase and I will create a private listing for Express mail: for candles it may be an additional $10; slates and maiboxes between $20-25 additional. SHIPPINNG NOTICES ARE ALWAYS EMAILED FROM ETSY SHIPPING, usps. I unfortunately cannot answer all questions about when an item will ship, as I do not know from day to day and paint in the order in which I receive them, please do not communicate unless you have not received a shipping notice within the longest time I have outlined, I do my very best to be timely but do have a family and there is only one me when life gets complicated, I have no factory of workers to step in, so I do need your patience. If you need something by a certain date and are unsure, you had best order elsewhere or give your recipient a photo with a card letting them know what they will be receiving. Thank you for your understanding. I cannot keep lots of designs ready to ship so most of my business is painted to order, that is the only way I can provide most designs.

Returns & exchanges
I will refund if you are unhappy if you notify me within a week of the shipping date and we arrange return shipping. I strive to please, so there are very few returns, but please, as I said, notify me immediately. Unless there is damage or flaws I did not notice, there is no refund for personalized or custom orders. I am more likely to send a replacement rather than a refund, and work closely with my customers until they are made content!
