Shipping
UPDATE AUGUST 2020: There are many changes going on in the United States Postal System right now. A new Post Master General has been creating many new rules and guidelines within the postal service. There are currently a lot of delays, First Class mail is no longer taking a 3-5 days to get to people, it’s taking upwards of a week to two weeks in some cases. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, there are delays. If you’re located in a rural area, please note that it could be even longer. Postal employees are doing their best with what they are being told to do. Please note that my COVID standards below still apply at this time.

APRIL 2020: Due to COVID-19, I will be limiting my post office runs to once a week. All listings are set to a weekly shipping date. This will allow me to limit my comings and goings and risk exposing myself to possible virus carriers.

Please note, the USPS is currently experiencing a slowdown in shipping items. First class mail is generally taking longer to be shipped out. Priority packages are taking longer, some are not guaranteeing the 1-2 day deliveries. Please be patient while your order is in transit. I supply all orders with tracking information, if you have an issue please contact me before filing a claim against my shop.


PRODUCT PACKAGING:

11x17 prints are shipped in a poster tube for safety reasons. All posters are rolled and placed inside the tube. If you purchase any 4x6 prints along with a poster, they will be mailed separately, as I cannot roll the smaller prints, they would be ruined. I will always notify if your order has to be split between two packages.

4x6 prints are shipped in a small bubble mailer, they are always protected by a plastic sleeve.

8x11 Stickers sheets are shipped in photo mailers, protected by a plastic sleeve.

Jewelry/Charms/Pins are packaged into small protective foam and shipped in bubble mailers.

Cosmetic bags are always shipped in bubble mailers.

STICKERS:

Domestic: Individual stickers are shipped in small bubble mailers for the price of shipping of a 3oz package.

International: All Stickers are shipped in small bubble mailers for the price of international shipping at the weight of 1 oz, which is whatever the lowest shipping cost is for your country out of the USA is. Canada is between $9-$10 USD and goes up from there other countries.

** If you would like to have me ship the sticker via a stamped envelope, please let me know through the messaging system here and we will work out a custom order. **

~SHIPPING~

Domestic: I ship USPS First Class on everything unless the packages weighs more than 1lb. Once you have received the shipping email (not to be mistaken for the shipping label being created), it should take 3-10 days for the package to arrive. As long as I have created the label using etsy, you can track the progress of your order. If you do not receive your order after 2 weeks after the shipping email, please notify me and I will try my best to figure out the issue.

International: All orders are shipped USPS First Class, or Parcel Select, unless you as the buyer choose priority shipping. As I am located in the US, it can take anywhere from 5-30 days to reach you, depending on where you are located. You (the buyer) are subject to whatever import/customs/duty fees that are subject to your country. I will not edit any customs form so that you can avoid paying duty fees. All packages have to be labeled as merchandise. Marking an item as a gift, does not alter your customs form so that it can bypass customs. I can be fined up to $10,000.00 if I am found marking packages as gifts when they are merchandise.

Shipping price includes weight of items and the shipping parcel/container/tube.
Additional policies and FAQs
FAQs:

--What is a Pre-Order?--
A Pre-order is when you order an item that has yet to be made. I generally open up pre-orders for items a week before I make the merchandize purchase, so I am not making a business purchase entirely out pocket. Pre-order production periods can last anywhere form 4-8 weeks, depending on the product.

--Why are some of these Pre-Orders taking so long?—
Due to COVID-19, some manufacturers are still trying to catch up with their order backlog. Most of my manufacturers are located in China, save for my sticker and wood pin manufacturers. That being said, many manufacturers are experiencing a high volume of orders, as small shops try to keep items in stock as they run their businesses from home during the pandemic.

Notebooks; The DM hardbound notebooks are currently out of stock and will retstock in the future at some point. The square hardbound notebooks are currently in production.

Wood Pins; the pins can take a while, because I am gluing pin backings onto all of the pins, then assembling them with charms or chains, depending on the order.

-- What is on my acrylic charm/keychain?--
All acrylic charms and keychains come with a film that is left on by the manufacturer. This peels off! You are supposed to peel it off! Peeling it off will in no way hurt your charm or keychain. Acrylic standees also have this film, which needs to be peeled off.

--How do you ship your larger prints?--
All 11x17 prints are rolled and shipped in a tube for safety. There are many issues that can arise with shipping larger prints in a flat envelope. They can be damaged or in many cases folded in half or bent to fit into mailboxes. The safest way to ship these posters is in a tube. Unrolling the poster to make it flat again is very easy.

--Why is shipping out of the US so expensive?--
Shipping rates in the US have gone up dramatically, meaning that to ship anything out of the country it is very expensive. I do not want to limit my items to being only sold in the states, nor do I wish to prevent people from other countries buying my art. Every shipping price is calculated by weight by etsy.

Please note, most countries have an important minimum, which means products after a certain amount are taxed upon entry to that country. Please check your import fees before purchasing so that you are aware of what you will be charged for certain products in my shop. Customs fees are entirely on your end, I have no business with them.


Taxes

--Why did my order get taxed?--
Etsy automatically collects tax for certain states. I am based in NY, so I need to collect NY state sales tax on any order being shipped to an address in NY state. Other states that collect sales tax automatically through Etsy are Washington, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, and Minnesota.
