Shop policies

Last updated on June 12, 2011
Welcome to my shop! Please see the sections below for details on my various policies. As always if you have any questions at all, Please, please feel free to ask via convo!

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
**All returns/exchanges require a return authorization before sending them back**

Buyer pays for return shipping, products may be exchanged or returned for store credit only. Item must be in same condition as when shipped out (new).

Due to their nature, custom orders cannot be returned, however I will do my best to make sure the order is to your liking before I finalize the order.

Please ask me with questions.
I take PayPal and personal check - however, PayPal is currently my preferred method of payment. I'm planning on setting up Google Checkout in the future, so let me know if you're interested.

Payment required within 24 hours of purchase - if you're sending a check, letting me know about it within 24 hours and put it in the mail within 3 days (and letting me know).
Note: I will hold on shipping your purchase until the funds clear.

No sales tax on any orders, because I'm from Oregon. :)
I ship most everything by USPS mail, either 1st class or Priority depending on the weight and destination.

If it's heavy enough to meet Priority mail requirements - please note the shipping cost is approximate and based on shipping to the East Coast. If you happen to live closer to me (Oregon), it could potentially be significantly less. If you would like you can provide your address at checkout, and I can provide a revised invoice. Likewise, any excess shipping fees charged at least $1 over the shipping cost to send it to you, I'll refund via PayPal.

I'm also happy to upgrade to various UPS ship methods if you prefer, let me know and I'll provide you a shipping quote. Expedited ship methods are provided through UPS. For any UPS shipping - please note that they cannot deliver to PO boxes, I'll need a physical address.

Insurance is included in the shipping charges, where allowable by USPS.

International shipping is available. Buyer is responsible for any and all customs duties & fees that may arise from the shipment.

If you live in the Portland, OR area and would be willing to pick up your purchase, I'd be happy to waive all shipping fees. Convo me if interested and we can arrange something.

I do my USPS shipping once or twice a week, so please keep this in mind when calculating transit times. UPS shipping can be more frequent if need be. If you would like details or have a special request, please let me know!
Additional policies and FAQs
Wholesale & bulk order requests welcome, please contact me if interested.

Discounts & specials available for repeat customers & referrals!

For special orders I require 3-4 week lead time before shipping the item, depending on the piece and my schedule at the time. However, I will ship the piece as soon as possible, and will keep you updated during the production of the piece.

For special orders, I also will require a 50% down (half of which is non-refundable, 25% of the total price) ahead of time to cover supplies and such. The remainder will be due once the piece is finished and approved for shipping.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions!
