MagpieandMax's Shop Announcement

Message for US customers---all Magpie and Max shipping within the United States is now via USPS Priority Shipping! Once we create your order (due to high volume of current orders, expect that to take up to 3-5 days from the time of purchase---we DO work weekends!), then Priority Shipping will take only 1-3 business days to arrive to you after that. So, please expect it take about two weeks, a little more or less, for US orders to arrive. Customers outside the US, figure on 2-4 weeks (packages will ship via first class international).

>>>PLEASE PLEASE STILL TELL US YOUR NEED-BY DATE IN THE "NOTES" BOX WHEN CHECKING OUT! We must know this for prioritizing orders. I get so stressed when I don't know when you need your package---even if it's not for months, please let me know so I can keep that information with your order. Thanks! :)>>>>>>

That is a change we've opted to make, as we've found First Class shipping is taking a full 7 business days to arrive in the US to arrive, occasionally even more. Since the nature of our business is meeting deadlines for parties and weddings and we want items item to arrive as quickly as possible for our valued customers---Priority is the best and most economical option! :) :)

We will now send all packages via this quicker method, because after over 5,000 packages shipped in all of our Etsy shops, Priority Shipping has proven to be more reliable and that's what we want for our customers. Who wants to be stressed out waiting for something like party decorations?! You should be able to think about other things and enjoy your event. :)

We advise US customers to plan that, from the time of ordering to the time they will receive their order, it will be about 14 business days.

If you have a RUSH need, contact us first to make sure we can meet your needs and then purchase the RUSH shipping upgrade in our shop. RUSH shipping is more expensive because we work overtime hours to complete your order. We can't accommodate too many of those at once, so please check in with us first before purchasing that. Thanks! :)

International customers may purchase Priority International, but price varies depending on location and is significantly more expensive-----it upgrades your shipping time to 6-10 business days, sometimes a bit less, sometimes a bit more. Convo me for an upgrade if you're interested and I'll set that up for you! :)

INTERNATIONAL (including CANADA) CUSTOMERS:

All shipping rates are for first class international mail. Packages typically arrive within 7-28 business days from shipping, depending on your location and the habits of your customs agency. WE still have to MAKE/Get to your order before the shipping happens---which is currently taking 3-5 business days from the time of ordering.

IMPORTANT: International orders may be subject to a customs/import duty fee. Check with your local government agency for their duty-fees, and policies.
We can not be responsible for fees required at customs or your local taxes. Here in Oregon, we don't charge sales tax, so YAY! At least you won't pay it here, too. :)

We cannot change your purchase value on the customs form to avoid customs fees.
