    The artwork is done beautifully, and the product would be great. But, the shipping wasn’t handled well. Instead of packaging the product well and wrapping it to make sure it wouldn’t break, the product was just shipped in a padded envelope. It arrived broken, and, because it was handmade, couldn’t be reshipped. The quality of the product was good, and she’s a great artist. But now I have a broken product that I paid for, and can’t get another one without reordering. And, because it was a gift, I guess I’ll just have to try gluing it back together like the shop owner suggested. Not the best service, but sort of understandable, I guess. She offered a small refund and a bit of a discount on another purchase. But, I just know I won’t be ordering anything else.

    I apologize this happened to you. That being said, all my wooden letters are send in bubble wrap envelopes and should not break. I have been doing this for a long time (not only Etsy) and out of hundreds of orders only 3 have ever arrived broken. It is sad it has happened but it is due to post office negligence and it is not my fault. I urge you and every other buyer online to always use priority mailing when ordering fragile items (or if the item is more expensive than my letters to pay shipping insurance). The company responsible for the damage would than have to reimburse you for your loss. It is not the artist responsibility to reimburse for post office negligence. Again I apologize this has happened to you.

Frequently asked questions
What if my order arrives broken?

First of all, I apologise if it happened to you.

All my letters are sent in bubble wrap envelopes and should not break. Sadly it has happened (less than a handful of times) because of post office negligence.

Due to cost and time to make the art I cannot offer you a new letter for free. You will get a 30% refund (letter value only) and a discount code for a new letter.

My recommendation is that you use wood glue to fix it and that you contact the Post Office if you payed for priority shipping/insured mailing (something you should always do when buying custom hand painted art anywhere).

Feel free to contact me if you have more questions.
