Shipping costs vary depending on what you are ordering and where you live. You can check out the shipping charges for your order in our shopping cart before you purchase and finalize your order. We charge as close to what the US Post Office charges us to ship your package to you as we can. Yes, shipping is expensive, but the rates are set by the Post Office, not us. For orders over $500, please email us for details on shipping costs.
For most packages we ship USPS Priority Mail, which we have found to be the most reliable, expedient way to ship. Parcel Post is sometimes even more money than Priority for smaller packages. For larger packages we do ship Parcel Post or UPS to keep costs lower for our customers. Smaller international packages will ship First Class International to keep costs lower for our international customers, and larger packages will be sent USPS Priority Mail International. Smaller orders for just magnets, for example, will be sent first class mail in an envelope.
We strive to ship your order within 1-4 business days of placing your order. Sometimes, during busy times, it may take a little longer, and sometimes we are moving super fast and we ship the same day! You will receive an email with a tracking number once your order has been shipped (for Priority Mail and Parcel Post orders only, no tracking numbers are available for small first class mail envelopes). Tracking information is updated by USPS – for some packages they update the status quite frequently, and for other packages (especially Parcel Post or International First Class) they often wait until the package has been delivered before updating the tracking information. We do not control how long the Post Office takes to deliver your package- the Post Office does. They do not give guaranteed delivery times – they only give estimates. Domestic Priority Mail is estimated to have a 1-3 day delivery time, Parcel Post is 6-10 days, and International can be anywhere from 1-4 weeks, and can get delayed by customs in the receiving country.
