Q: Do you ship internationally?
A: Yes! I ship worldwide from Florida, USA.
Q: I placed multiple orders right after each other, can shipping be combined?
A: Yes, I combine orders automatically as long as your orders are placed under the same store account/email, and the addresses on your orders match. If not, do email me with your order numbers to combine! Any excess shipping costs are refunded after shipment.
Q: Can I put my order on hold to be shipped later with a future order?
A: Yes, just leave me a note at checkout, or email me after your purchase to put your order on hold. Note that shop updates typically occur 1~1.5 months apart from each other and its contents are always subject to change. When you are ready for your order to be shipped, please notify me via email, or leave a note on the next order.
Q: What is your processing time?
A: I always ship as soon as possible within 3 business days under normal circumstances. But during events such as shop updates or sales, shipping may now take up to 2+ weeks due to a larger influx of orders that are received.
Q: How long will it take for my order to arrive?
A: All orders are shipped via USPS First Class with tracking by default. Shipping upgrades are available at checkout for an additional cost!
USPS First Class Package: 2-5 business days after shipment.
USPS Priority Mail: 2-3 business days after shipment.
- USPS First Class Mail: varies; cheapest rate; tracking is limited for all countries. Your package will first go to a hub in the US (transit time: ~1 week), then will be processed for international shipment.
- USPS First Class Package: varies; complete tracking is available only for countries that participate in USPS delivery confirmation service.
- USPS Priority Mail: 6-10 business days after shipment.
For international residents, First Class delivery time may span from 7 to 30+ business days--this varies from country to country. Transit times will depend on the efficiency of your local post office. Delays may occur due to holidays, weather conditions, customs holds, etc.
Q: How does insurance protect my order?
A: Purchasing (Shipsurance) insurance for your order financially protects your order in the event that your package is damaged, mis-delivered, or lost in the care of the postal service. This shop is not responsible for delivery mishandlings.
Should an issue occur with your package and you didn't purchase insurance, I will still assist you in any way I can, but I cannot fully reimburse your order without it.
Should an issue occur with your package and you did purchase insurance, a parcel claim will be filed. For lost orders, we must wait at least 20 calendar days (domestic/US orders), or 40 calendar days (international orders) from the shipment date before the claim can be filed. Claims must be reported and filed no later than 120 days from the shipment date. Carrier terms and conditions can be found here.
Q: My package says "delivered" but I didn't receive it? Help!
If your tracking number says your package was delivered but you didn't receive it, please try and check the following (more often than not, packages are found after checking 2 & 3!):
1. Your shipping address. Was the address you provided correct?
2. Check with housemates if they had picked up your mail, and check with neighbors in the case that USPS accidentally delivered to the wrong house.
3. If your package is not with your neighbors, please then get in contact with your local post office ASAP to check if they had mis-scanned your package or if there was another issue. If needed, you may have to open a missing mail claim with them.
Q: What is the difference between standard grade, b-grade, and seconds grade pins?
Due to the handmade nature of enamel pins, pins may not be 100% perfect. Different pin grades are available for you to choose the cosmetic quality of your pin.
✧ STANDARD GRADE: Best pins in the batch! Very minor to no flaws.
✧ B-GRADE: Small flaws (ex: small specks, under-filled enamel, etc.)
✧ SECONDS GRADE: Obvious flaws or many small flaws (ex: deeper dents, larger random enamel paint streaks, small areas of missing enamel, wrong enamel color fill, etc.)*
*No pins with severe defects are sold unless stated otherwise.
Pin grading is subjective. Pins will vary in flaws and may be more obvious than others. They are given at random; requests for "good" pins will not be honored. If you are worried about receiving a pin with more obvious flaws, please consider purchasing a standard quality/b-grade pin instead!
