Shipping Prices and Fees
Shipping and Handling fees - In an attempt to be transparent we would like to cover how this works. Our shipping prices include handling fees. This is pretty standard when it comes to purchasing anything that is shipped. What we charge for shipping may not always be the same that USPS charges us. These fees help cover packaging supplies, including bags, shrink bands, packaging materials, labels, receipts, ink, processing fees, and our time. Since we offer an $8 flat rate shipping on oils and dye a lot of the time we are actually paying more for shipping and supplies than we charge our customers. If you have any shipping related questions please feel free to contact us. $8 flat rate shipping is a special shipping we offer on oils & dye, this does not mean that your item(s) will necessarily ship in a flat rate USPS box.
Can I make changes to an order after it has been submitted?
Any order changes or Add-on items will need to be approved by us first since sometimes we package and ship order within a matter of minutes of receiving them. Since there is added labor and processing fees involved, any items that need to be added on to an order or any order changes that need to be done we will charging a $2.50 fee for this.
