December Orders and SHIPPING
My, my, my are you all as busy as me making clutches for gifts or for holiday sales?? I think the economy is coming back because the holiday orders are looking good (*knocking loudly on wood*). I’ve also heard from several of you that you have had great sales for holiday gift-giving.
WAY TO GO! Pat yourselves on the back for the great planning.
On that note, please keep in mind Christmas holiday orders. You still have plenty of time to make your clutches for your customers but do not delay. A clutch in hand will get a quick sale!
So please plan well and get your supplies to make your clutches. Please note that I will be shipping 6 days a week via Priority Mail (for all orders consisting of 5 or more frames) or First Class Mail (for PDF hard copies and less than 5 frames for beginners).
So why the nudge on orders? Because Priority Mail is not guaranteed to get there in 2-3 days! Here’s the policy of USPS:
Estimated Delivery Time
o If a Priority Mail package is going to a major city, or is traveling less than 600 miles, it should arrive in two (2) days. Otherwise, it should arrive in three (3) days.
This is not a guaranteed service.
o Date of delivery is not guaranteed. Delivery by a specific date at a specific time is not available.
o Estimated delivery time begins on the date postmarked.
… And this is outside of the consideration of the higher volume from the holidays. With the holiday volume of packages, USPS is going to be slower than normal … I can guarantee that!
So if you absolutely need it by a certain date, please email me or convo me via my Etsy shop for a custom listing with Express Mail, which is guaranteed (but is also CRAZZZZZY expensive). You don’t even want to know about UPS or FedEx. Their stocks have done very well for a reason … 😉
International Customers: Please take advantage of the medium flat rate Priority Mail International box. Anything more than (5) 8×3 frames has to go in the medium box. (It’s a testament to my origami skills that I can even fit all 5 in those teeny boxes!) I can fit about (40) 8×3 frames for the same amount – $43.00 – as (10) frames, so plan your purchase and spread your cost of shipping over more frames thereby lowering your cost per clutch/unit.
