***Please read Shop Policies page before ordering. If you are not open to communication when you have any issues with the order (message first to discuss before leaving feedback), then this is a formal request to not order here:
http://www.etsy.com/shop_policy.php?user_id=7993319

***PLEASE DO NOT ORDER IF YOU WILL CANCEL RIGHT AFTER - once an order goes into queue, a separately shipping program is used and notice for cancellation mayl not be noticed. So just think twice before putting in an order. Once an order goes out regardless if you had sent a cancellation or not, there will only be refund for item cost minus shipping cost that already went out to USPS.

**USPS FIRST CLASS - have been having delays and delivery time can range from 4-10 business days for US domestic first class mail. Priority upgrade can be requested and that would be 2-3 business days delivery.

*****INTERNATIONAL rates from USPS nearly doubled or more for low weight items. So the rate you see isn't by choice but a change reflected from USPS. It's unfortunate and crazy. Please don't order if you feel the rates are too high since I do not want feedback later saying so. Thank you for your understanding.

**PLEASE DO NOT ask to mark packages as gifts or lower the amount on international customs form. I can only mark it merchandise and the actual value of the order***

**PLEASE DO contact me first if you have issues with an order BEFORE leaving a feedback.

No CUSTOM listings for now, asking to increase quantity from 1 is ok.

There will now be a new section called Washi Tape (Chugoku) - which will include washi tape that is OEM from China. In my opinion, those are standard quality and the Japanese made are higher quality. Please read description for detail before ordering.

AUSTRALIA - Australian Post Have Known Delay Issues - Australian order MUST write "I understand that there may be delays and will be patient with the order" in the note to seller. This helps in knowing who reads announcement/policy before ordering.****

*** No Shipping to GERMANY, ARGENTINA, BRAZIL, ITALY, AND SOUTH AFRICA currently due to too many undelivered packages. I will open up shipping to SPAIN again for now for some singles, but please note that it can take up to 90 days for shipments to either arrive or if it doesn't it can take longer for it to return. So please check with your country's customs and watch for notices regarding customs payment. Do not place an order if you do not have time to wait for packages in case there are delays.

For MT brand and all tape, please check description since there are 3 sizes.

Also, please do read the description and look at all pictures available since sometimes, titles can't depict an item completely. Also please understand that colors of actual product may vary slightly due to lighting and also individual computer monitor.

FOR INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: please read policies page since it contains some info on customs/duty tax information.

***Please note that all orders are shipped to PAYPAL addresses and if it's different than etsy's, you will need to respond to an address confirmation email I send out or orders can't be processed****

***UPDATED August 12, 2015***

**** FREE SHIPPING OFFER CANNOT BE APPLIED TO BULK/BULKY ORDERS****

Please read everything before ordering. If you are not open to communication when you have any issues with the order, this is a formal request to not order here. So please do contact me using convo/message if you have ANY issues.

Jan 2015 -- Lately, USPS seem to have changed the sort facility especially for first class and some packages doesn't get scanned until few days later. Priority mail processed the sabe day and seem faster. So keep in mind that first class will average 4-7 business days for some states and 4-10 business days for NE and further west coast and east coast area****

***PLEASE DO NOT ORDER IF YOU WILL CANCEL RIGHT AFTER - once an order goes into queue, a separately shipping program is used and notice for cancellation will not be noticed. So just think twice and three or four times before putting in an order. Once an order goes out regardless if you had sent a cancellation or not, there will only be refund for item cost minus shipping cost that already went out to USPS.

***2013 INTERNATIONAL rates from USPS nearly doubled or more for low weight items. So the rate you see isn't by choice but a change reflected from USPS. It's unfortunate and crazy. Please don't order if you feel the rates are too high since I do not want feedback later saying so. I personally think it's way too high but nothing i can do about it unless someone has a suggestion for another more economical method. Thank you for your understanding.

For AUSTRALIA, I just read about customs and borders protection strike, so there will likely be delays:http://auspost.com.au/about-us/possible-delays-to-international-mail.html

*** I DO NO disclose handmade product process or font information ****

**Item Prices and Shipping Prices may fluctuate due to supply, demand, shipping rate, exchange rate and other factors. Sometimes the same items can be set with different cost due to the supplier as well as quantity purchased. The more I purchase, the more discount and the lower the cost I can offer to you =)
***Please note that prices here for some items reflects fees associated with having this shop here - no adjustments for previous purchases due to price changes or price differences from my shop outside of etsy.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
PayPal and credit card payment is accepted. All payments must be made 24 hours after purchase, otherwise transaction will be cancelled and item will be re-listed. No taxes with exception for TX purchases.
Shipping
***SHIPPING COST***
You will see the total shipping cost after adding your items to the cart and viewing the cart. Usually it is calculated by one highest shipping cost item and the rest of the items have a discounted shipping cost which is reflected as a total after you add the items to your cart***

****ITEMS ARE SENT TO PAYPAL CONFIRMED ADDRESS**** If you have a different address on paypal, be sure to send a convo/message immediately following the order (I mean within the hour!) - otherwise, there will be no reshipment of the orders if it's shipped to the wrong/old address etc.

PLEASE make sure the shipping address is correct or reshipping fee will be required if the package gets returned***************************

***I do not always mark etsy's "shipped" until I have time, therefore the date etsy has as shipped may not be accurate. Please go by Paypal's transaction page for more accurate ship date since I use paypal to keep track of shipments. Paypal also should send out an email once a payment is marked as shipped, so please check your email from paypal****

E-CHECKS- echecks usually takes at least 3-5+ business days to clear. So if you are in a hurry to receive the order, then I would suggest not using echeck since you will have additional waiting time. Using credit card or paypal account balance would usually clear immediately.

Shipping within the US:

Items usually shipped 2-4 days after confirmation of payment (holidays may take longer - especially November and December). No weekend shipments (or on bad weather days such as bad storm and freeze =). Orders made Fridays are usually shipped Mondays. Shipping will be through USPS standard first class mail. In most cases, delivery will take average 3-7 days within the US. There is no insurance in the listed shipping rate, but if you wish to add insurance**, certificate of mailing, Certified Mail, or Delivery Confirmation - please contact for additional cost and note it during payment transaction. Generally, you can check the pricing here for US domestic orders:
http://www.usps.com/prices/extra-services-prices.htm

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:

***unclaimed and returned packages will not be resent - refund will be made if a package is returned minus postage fees. If resend is requested, additional postage must be made to for the resend postage fees.***

International orders shipped using USPS first-class mail international. Usually takes average of 9-15 business days after day of shipping but can take longer (sometimes 30-45 business days) due to customs clearance (you should get a paypal email the night before I ship it, so don't start counting until the next day after. So if you get the email Monday late night, estimate delivery starting Wednesday). No weekend deliver or on bad weather days. Friday orders usually ship Mondays. Prices will depend on weight. Feel free to contact to check pricing prior to ordering for international orders. Please also check that the item you order will have no issue going through customs. We are not responsible for any items stuck at customs. Buyer pays for any customs/duties/VAT tax/Local Tax if necessary.

Please read more info on VAT/customs tax charges (a few orders from UNITED KINGDOM (3), BELGIUM(2), ITALY (1) and NETHERLANDS(1) have been reported to have VAT charges and they do seem a bit too high, so please find out what you can before ordering and keep the total amount low - UK seem to be 15£). PLEASE DO NOT ask to mark an order as "gift" or to put a lower amount. It is against the law and is not something that can be done ~~ thanks for understanding:
http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=6475989&page=3
http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/customs/post/index.htm

***the following countries are just a guideline from what customers told me. So please do check on your own as well what your country's customs rules are:

UK seem to be 15£ and anything over will have import tax and royal mail charges a minimum of £8 flat rate per parcel (that is way to high) to get the item from customs to destination. These extra fees imposed by UK is the responsibility of buyer.

Denmark is $16 USD and under are duty free (but please double check)

Ireland - anything under €22 should be tax free, but please check it yourself.

Belgium - Belgium seem to be a bit random. A customer spent less than $10 and was still taxed. So it could just depend on the person doing customs at the time. So just keep in mind that no matter what amount, you can still be taxed for Belgium.

EU - Purchase up to $30 USD is tax free. Anything over is 10EURO in import fee. If you need to order a lot, please just order in separate orders. Unless you want to pay for the high import fee!

Insurance** only available if you decide to upgrade to express mail. Registered Mail is available also at an additional cost. We will send you a copy of the usps receipt which has the date, destination country and weight of the package as proof of delivery UPON REQUEST.
http://www.usps.com/prices/extra-services-prices.htm

Due to the way etsy calculates shipping cost - estimated rates may be different from actual rate. Sometimes it's over, sometimes it's under, therefore there is no issue or refunds if it is over the actual rate, just like there is no charge for more if it goes under the actual rate.
Refunds and Exchanges
I hope you will like the item as much as I do, however if you have any issues with it, please contact within 48 hours or 10 days from shipping with reason for refund. Item must be returned in it's original unopened and unused condition. Original postage will not be refunded and buyer is responsible for paying for shipment of the return item and reshipment of exchanged items. In the event that the refund causes the transaction to fall under the current special items #, the percentage of discount may be charged or readjusted. If the item met the free shipping special and refund causes the amount to fall under the minimum met for free shipping, the original shipping charge will be added.

**Damages from shipment cannot be refunded. Once the items goes to the hands of USPS, it is between the buyer and USPS and thus it's a good idea to get shipping insurance!
Additional policies and FAQs
If you have any questions, comments, or issues, please contact me first to discuss prior to leaving a neutral or negative feedback or paypal dispute. I enjoy open communication with customers and hope that you will communicate with me if there's anything at all that's on your mind (related to the shop/item of course ...or korean dramas hahaha =P )

COLORS: Please do note that a lot of the color names are set by the manufacturer. If a set is yellow or red for instance...it doesn't have to mean that every single roll in the set is that color. So please do read the description and look at all pictures available and of course, ask questions if you need to before purchasing.

If you have any request or questions about sets or more than one quantity, feel free to convo.

Happy Shopping!!! Don't spend more than you have ok???
