Returns and exchanges
No refunds on custom orders.
No refunds on made to order items.

I will accept exchanges for items purchased within 14 days and are unworn, however you are responsible for the shipping.

I will accept a return on off-the-rack items for a gift card from KLAWTEX, no direct refunds.

Im happy to fix or replace anything that was my fault, and do one adjustment for fit per order for free. More often than not Ill even pay for the shipping.... I have never needed to fix or replace anything, so I assume it will continue to be infrequent.

Something that was not a fault of the production, but has been damaged or needs to be altered because of size change, I am happy to alter or repair at a 10% discounted rate as a thank you to you for your ongoing patronage.
I accept many types of payment!

Paypal is the easiest and fastest for everyone.

I accept Money Order through the mail and will begin processing your order immediately upon receipt of that money order (and Ill even send you an email letting you know as soon as I do!)

Personal checks are trickier, but if you send them and they clear Ill send you an email and let you know that your stuff is getting processed ASAP! However this can take a couple of days.

Cash- in person contact me for location and upcoming travel

Credit card- via Square, in person see above

* a note on cancellation....The Etsy website wants me to have a policy on order cancellation, and I have never had to deal with that before. So how about this, I understand late night internet shopping implusiveness, you have 24 hours to cancel your order no questions asked. Beyond that, I cant help you. XOXO
I tend to use the good old flat rate USPS shipping whenever I can (Domestic and International!), but often single items fit in padded envelopes.

All item will be enclosed in a latex-storage-worthy plastic seal top bag, usually with a ventilation hole.

I always send an email/ message when I ship something.

I do not typically do delivery confirmation, insurance or expedited shipping, however if you would like any of these options please contact me for pricing information.

For customs all materials will be marked as "Rubber Materials" as this typically slips by well. If you have a preference I am open to suggestions.

As with most things, I'm a person, you're a person, if you have a question or a desire Im happy to field your inquiry.
