International Shipping

International Destinations: I am sorry, I cannot ship to all international countries. But, I will try my best to get the cheapest shipping rate for you. I ship primarily to English speaking countries: Canada, Puerto Rico, US territories, South America, the UK (England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Isle of Man), Western Europe and Australia. Shipping can be arranged by UPS or USPS Priority Mail International. 

The actual delivery time is usually up to your country. For instance, UK orders generally arrive within a week-10 days. But Australian orders could take up to three weeks to arrive. In general, it will take 7-10 business days for Priority Mail International and 3-7 business days for Priority Mail Express. To be on the safe side allow 2 weeks for transit by regular Priority and 1 week for Priority Express. A tracking number will be supplied after shipment.

If your country is not listed among those to which I ship, use the Contact Form to let us know which item(s) you want, the quantity, your city, postal code, and country. I will get back to you as soon as possible and let you know if I can ship to you and, the total of your order with the item and shipping charges. If you approve the order and shipping charge quote, I will process a mail/phone order for you and either notify you to return to the site, log in and complete payment or, send you a separate, secure e-mail invoice for payment by credit card or e-check. After payment clears, the work will begin on your order and it will ship after the work is complete.

The US Postal Service Priority Mail International shipping charge that you pay covers shipping to the border of your country and in some cases to your door if there is no duty or tax due and payable to your country. For example, UPS Canadian or international shipping charge only covers shipping from the US to the border of your country. There will be additional delivery, brokerage, duty, and fees charged and collected by UPS. I cannot collect them in advance and they do not pass any of these fees on to or refund them to me.

I cannot guarantee the timely delivery of an international order after it leaves my hands. I pack it, label it and put it in the hands of our post office. After that, it is up to the US Postal service and the postal service in your country to get your order to you in time. In short, order early!! :-)

FYI: depending upon where you are located, your country may assess additional duties or customs fees to you based upon the value of your order. You may also be charged additional shipping fees or taxes by your government after your package arrives. These are not fees that I can collect in advance and I do not retain them.  Generally, an order and/or gifts valued at less than $25 do not incur import fees. I report the value for customs purposes as the total of the items on the order before the shipping charge. To find out what import/duty VAT fees, taxes and charges you will likely incur, go to the website of the postal service in your country. Or, visit your local postal office.
