I cannot guarantee shipping times for American or International buyers, as there are often customs delays which are not of my control.

Please also note that I am in CANADA, and shipping times will be different than if I were in the USA. For information on this, please read below.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

Payments must be made up front for all custom orders. All other orders must be paid prior to shipment.

CANADIANS! I now accept interac online money transfers!! Contact me before ordering.



I ship with Canada Post. For most non-customized rubber stamps and paper items, your item is created and shipped within 7 business days.

For PERSONALIZED/CUSTOM DESIGNED rubber stamps, please allow 14 business days from your time of purchase for your item to be mailed.

If you purchase a custom stamp and you do not already have a font/image and idea of exactly what you want, please allow extra time for design.

Once you and I agree on the design, and your stamp is paid for, then I can begin.

Design fees may be applicable depending on the nature of your stamp, and the amount of design time I must put in to your stamp. Please read Below (additional information) about using stamps with my designs for commercial items.

I generally do not ship with tracking, as Canada Post charges substantially more for this. If you do require tracking though, please notify me before hand and I can calculate what the shipping will be. For larger orders, it may not be that much more.

Shipping times vary when mailing outside of Canada, due to customs etc, so I cannot guarantee shipping times. Most items take anywhere from 9-15 business days to the USA, and on occasion a bit longer.
International Orders can take anywhere from one week to 6.(rarely six, but it isn't unheard of)

If you need guaranteed shipping time for a certain item, (that birthday card or baby shower present) contact me before hand and I can find a shipping method that is faster, and give you an estimate.

INSURANCE: Shipping from Canada with insurance is extremely expensive. So expensive in fact, that if i charged you for it, you wouldnt be buying any of my items.
Therefore im self-insured. Meaning, I charge slightly more for shipping, even when combined, than the actual cost of shipping. If your item should go missing, or arrive damaged, I will replace it, from my "insurance fund". So please dont be alarmed if you buy, for example 5 stamps, and are charged $7 shipping, and the parcel arrives with $3 postage. No, the parcel will not be insured by the post office. But it is still insured, and that $4 paid for it.

To My International Customers:

I do not collect any customs when sending our packages. Any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, duties, etc. that may be incurred at the time of delivery would be at the discretion of your country's tax regulations. I have no way of calculating how much these fees would be, should they occur, and The Mayberry Sparrow is not responsible for those charges. Returns will not be accepted due to customs fees.
I cannot lie on customs forms, and mark it as a gift when it is not. This is illegal.
The value declared on your package will be what you paid for the item. (less shipping)

I reserve the right to ship from USPS-
On an occasional basis, when I have enough orders to justify the journey, I will ship from the USA to speed up arrival times for both my American and International buyers, as USPS is quicker than Canada Post.
I am indeed in Canada, but please don't be alarmed if your item arrives through USPS.

Additional policies and FAQs


How do I clean my stamp?

I recomend simple dish detergent or shampoo. It's important that you do not scrub the suface with anything abrasive, as this could scratch the design.
Allow them to dry face up, or dry by patting them down with a towel.

What inks Should I use?

This depends on your project! If you're stamping on paper, there are a variety of inks available.
Pigment inks are rich in color and render gorgeous results. They can almost look silk screened! This type of ink tends to sit on top of the paper, rather than soak in, and takes slightly longer to dry.

Dye based inks take hardly any time to dry, and also come in many different shades/colors. This type of ink soaks right into the paper. If you're stamping a surface that's extremely porous,or draws liquid (like handmade paper, or wood) this may not be the type of ink that you'll want to use, as it will bleed into the paper.

For surfaces other than paper that you'd like to stamp permentantly, there are other inks made specifically for fabric and wood. Some come in pads, and others come in a tube that must be rolled on with a brayer.
If you need any hints or tips, please contact me:)

Are the stamps mounted?:

All stamps are sold umounted.
I will mount any stamp for an additional fee upon request.
I do not automatically mount my stamps though for several reasons. First, they are very thick to begin with and often don't need it. I have no problem handling them as they are, and mounted stamps take up additional storage space as well.

The shipping cost is greater to the buyer if the stamps are mounted because they will exceed Canada Post's thickness guidelines for my shipping rates.

Please let me know before ordering if you think you will need a mounting block. I can attach it before shipping (shipping will increase) or mail it along with the stamp for you to attach when you recieve it. There is no additional shipping for this, because they can travel side by side and still fit through Canada Post's 2 cm slot of doom!

Policy for Using Copyrighted Stamps

My stamps are my designs, and therefore copyrighted. If you would like to use them for anything other than personal work, on anything that is to be sold, please contact me before hand.
I do grant permission in most cases, providing you mention my name/shop in a line of credit in your listing.

If you need a stamp designed for use on items you are selling, I can do this.
However, if you wish the design to be exclusively by you and not duplicated, there will be an additional fee, for buying the exclusive rights of use to my design.

If the stamp is a design that you've provided, then obviously it will not be copyrighted to me, and you can use it however you please.
