Shipping
-- I will ship from Japan --

===
I can not put all information of the shipping details in the Etsy's "I have sent" message so please do read below.
===

Default shipping method is the standard airmail like airmail letter which has no insurance.

There are some shipping methods you can choose like below.
If you would like insurance, please change the shipping method to choose pull down menu when you place an order.

I suggest at least "no.2" method for just in case the packet is lost or damaged etc....


-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

1.--Small packet regular airmail (No insurance; Only-goods airmail) -***Default method ***-

Fee : 4.50 USD

Tracking : No

**insurance coverage, refunds, resending or exchanges are NOT included.

Shipping date : According to the post office, it takes around 2 weeks.

Most inexpensive but if anything happens there is nothing that can be done.
This is the same as an normal airmail letter.

*Including no letter makes cheeper fee than normal airmail so there will be nothing else can put in the envelope when it is sent.

*It has been taken more than ONE MONTH in the past for a few customers.


2.-- Small packet regular airmail with registered --

Fee : 8.00 USD

Refund : Up to 6000 Japanese yen (approx.. $60)

Tracking : Yes (But not detailed for all countries)

Shipping date : According to a post office, it takes around 2 weeks.

A little expensive but you can get refund or resend if it is lost or damaged.

*It has been taken more than ONE MONTH in past for a few customers.

According to the post office, for some countries it is available to show detailed condition on the web site using tracking number but for other countries which is not exchange information between countries, do not get details information on the web site.
However, at least You can get the information when the shop sent and left Japan officially.

After left Japan, It shows only when your local post office puts the data.

3.-- EMS (Express mailing system)--

Fee : from 14.00 USD (Asia $14.00, U.S. $20.00, Europe $22.00, South America $24.00 etc.)

Refund : Up to $200 (or more if you pay more insurance fee)

Tracking : Yes (But not detailed for all countries)

Shipping date : According to the post office it takes around 5 days


Most expensive but it is very fast shipping and you can get refund if it is lost or damaged.
*Japan post has INSTANTLY raised the EMS price from 2016.6.1.

According to a post office because this method is express airmail it precede
through customs too but it goes fast so it ships faster than others.


~~~~~~~~~~

*Items will be carefully packaged and sent from Japan.

*I put items into the plastic pipe and cover them with packing materials and also I put double-stick tape on it and put into the envelope(so that it won't get out even if the envelope teared and we will know if someone tries to steal).
It doesn't look fancy but there is less breakage.

*Gift wrapping is available.
I take only “candy wrapping” because the item is small and looks cute when wrapped this way.
Right now it is fee of charge.

ITEMS

**Resin, especially clear candle change the color.

The sun ruin (change color) many things so are those materials.

Those materials change color in a while too but when you put the bottles under the sun they are going to change the color much faster than usual especially candle bottles.

Resin I use is hard-to-change-color resin but it still changes after a while.

so please be careful not to put them under the sun.

I can not exchange nor refund from this cause.

Once in a while it may fog inside the bottle and then you can wipe with a very tiny piece of dry soft cloth put on tip of a toothpick or something like thin thing. you'll get clean inside there.

Thank you for reading.
Additional policies and FAQs
**Custom order***

*I take custom orders that begins at $50(for tiny bottle), $70(for bigger bottle) and may change it depends on the design requested.
I may charge you more if your request is more detailed or/and more objects etc...

It usually takes a few weeks but it may be longer or shorter that is depending upon the number of orders I have at that time and how busy at my main work is.

After I make it, I will send you some photos of it. Then If it needs to fix it, I will do as far as I can but will not add object(s) or change shapes,the scene etc.... If it is something different from ordered at the beginning. If you need it, I may need to ask you extra charge for it.

Please tell me detailed situation of what you would like to make.
I really appreciate to show me photo(s), drawing(s), illustration(s) etc... to know the design you like.

**
It takes hours to design and hours to make and takes some time to put it into the tiny bottle to set up.
I used to ask customers to pay AFTER I made the ordered object of corse. but some customers haven't even answered my I-have-made-your-order email.
I thought I am very sorry for other customers who are waiting so long while I am making these for customers like this...
so I have decided to charge customer who really would like to have it, BEFORE making.

However, After I did my best to make object but you don't like it, that is no problem and I will pay you back right away using paypal.
I may then sell it on my shop but I will not sell it to the customer who canceled.

I may cancel if it is not too detailed or impossible shape etc.... then I will let you know and but still you'd like it, let's discuss how we can do it better bottle.


**
What do I get with $50 custom order?
Usually it would do "one object" and "landscape".

polar bear is at the ice land
sea otter is floating on the sea in front of a land
Original animal at the field
Two kids are playing
karate fighting in front of students
original elephant with a name plate and a tree

and so on!!!

if you need to change color, add more trees etc... it change the price.

Price are subject to change without notice.

*It may take long to answer but you can ask me the price with a specific scene with a photo or illustration or explanation help a lot.

I don't really know what to answer if the question is like..

"Can you make a dog?"

Please let me know a specific scene!
Thank you!

***Items originally made for custom orders (the idea, design, object etc...) may be made and sold later. If so, prices should be closer to other bottles listed on the site right now. That is reason I make the custom order price as low as I can.

Shipping
There are some shipping methods(for one bottle):

Small packet regular airmail $4.50
Small packet regular airmail with registered from $8.50
EMS from $20(U.S.A. = $20)

Please see shipping policy above and add shipping fee to custom order fee to order.

If these conditions are agreeable and you would like to place a custom order, please let me know!

Thank you

~~FAQ~~

Q. Can the bottle be worn as a necklace or carrying?
A. The object is usually made of paper so I think it would be light enough to wear but the bottle is normally made as an ornament. I don’t recommend it be worn or carried since the bottle is glass and the item inside is fragile. But, if requested, I will include a rubber band and a ring (for wearing) or a strap (for carrying) . you need to add one at the same time.
Please indicate the color rubber band and strap you want.
Rubber band color choices are: pink, blue, yellow, purple or green (all clear).
Strap color choices are: yellow, light blue, pink, red, white or black.
**Not responsible for any damage occurring if the ornament is worn or carried.

Q. Can you make ***** ?
A. Yes, I can try but it may take some time to design and make. A detailed description or a photo/drawing will be very helpful. If I have a lot of orders, it may take a few months or so to complete. I will advise you of the price before beginning the order.
Please read custom order description above.

Q. I just missed the item! / I found a good one on the sold item list, Can you make it again?
A. Yes, most of sold bottles, I can. I try to remake sold items little by little but if you would like it before that please let me know. It may take a while to make it but I will make it earlier than others If I can and I will let you know when it's done.
However, I can not guarantee when will it be because of my main job matter.
**I charge you the same price as it was sold not custom order price.

Q. Can you add or remove from the bottles listed for sale?
A. Yes, I can do that.
*Listed items (parts, objects) can be used to create tiny custom orders.
*If the change to be made uses the same shape (I want 3 dogs instead of 2), this can be an additional charge. ex) to add one dog would be $3.00-
*If you want an item removed from an existing bottle (remove 1 of 2 dogs), the price will remain as listed.
*If you want to switch an item (a dog for a cat), there will not be an additional charge.
*If you want to add an item (to add a dog, found in another bottle) there will be an additional charge. ex) to add one dog would be $3.00-
*If you want more trees, I will add a tree for from $6.00 each.

Please ask other additional item for the price.

I keep a bottle which is remaking-sold-item when a customer asked me to.

*If the payment has been completed in advance, this won't be applicable.
