Shipping charges include shipping and handling and packaging materials. Our international shipments DO NOT include customs taxes. These taxes are the customer's responsibility and are collected by your government upon delivery. Consult your local authorities about the tax rates for your country.

Special Orders
If you have a custom or special order, the shipping schedule will be dictated by the work needed. You will be contacted on the day your order is shipped.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

International Shipping
We ship internationally via the US Postal Service utilizing Priority Mail. The US Postal Service estimates 4-7 day USPS Delivery. This is an estimate only; it is not a guaranteed delivery time. Also, please allow extra time for packages to be processed through Customs.
** Please note that USPS First Class International shipping does not include an international tracking number.  Despite the lower cost of this service, please be aware of the lack of tracking.  USPS Priority Mail does include international tracking.
Delays in Customs are not unusual. We cannot offer guarantees on shipping time for international orders.

PLEASE NOTE: We must report the correct purchase price on customs forms. We cannot designate international shipments as "gift" or "sample," and we cannot misrepresent the amount of sale on invoices for the purposes of avoiding customs taxes.  This puts us at risk for up to a $10,000 fine and 5 years imprisonment.  See statement of fines and penalties here
