Shipping & Returns
Hello! We ship Monday - Friday and most Saturdays. On US Federal Holidays no mail moves - you *may* see a label print, but it will leave the next mailing day. If we take a short break for vacation, it is announced ahead of time on all social media channels and in the newsletter. Are you signed up for my emails? They often contain treasures!
We strive to ship within 48 to 72 business hrs if everything is IN STOCK. Super intense, cut-heavy orders can sometimes take 3-5 days.
Please keep shipping insurance (Package Protection) in your cart. If you take it out, you will have to file your own claim with USPS or UPS. While mistakes with the Carriers are rare, they do happen and it's best to have full coverage.
PRE ORDERS ship as stated in the listing -- usually these take some time to arrive. IF YOU COMBINE in stock items with a preorder they will ship TOGETHER at one time. Make a separate order if you need in-stock items sooner. Thanks!!
We ship USPS First class mail and Priority Mail always, never ground. We ship UPS if you choose UPS, OR if it's more economical and faster than USPS.
We DO ship to Canada &most other European countries, also Australia and New Zealand through USPS or UPS if you choose it. We do NOT cover import fees. It is worth an email if you're concerned about the cost, before placing your order. I will weigh and estimate cost before processing.
Local pick up is an option! Our store is located at 4860 Larson Beach Rd in McFarland, WI. We are open Wednesdays and Saturdays 12-4.
Our mail system is pretty amazing when compared to the rest of the world and we are so grateful to the Carriers that make it happen!
Vinyl is usually rolled and either wrapped in tissue or a protective bag, and sent that way. Some vinyl (soft metallic and moonglow for example) can be folded without causing damage, you can opt to iron it from the back side as well. In any case, if your vinyl arrives with wrinkles you can simply place it in the sunshine OR use a hair dryer to warm it flat again, or iron it (wrong side only). If you think your vinyl is damaged, please email me and I will take care of you. 😊
**Soft metallic vinyl, Stardust, croc, and Moonglow vinyl CAN be ironed from the wrong side. See my Guide for Sewing Vinyl for more info.
