Production Time & Shipping

The time it takes to handcraft products varies. See each individual product listing for the production time it takes to handcraft the product after the order is placed prior to shipping. Oftentimes, orders process faster than the time allotted, but I can’t guarantee a faster processing time.

Made to Order vs. Pre-Made:
Check a listing carefully to understand if a product is pre-made and ready to ship, or if the product is made-to-order.
Both are handmade, but the pre-made is shipment ready while the made-to-order products vary in the time it takes to be created for you.
Look for the following image if a product is ready for shipment in 1-2 business days after the order is placed:

Cost calculations:
We do our best to apply fair shipping costs to each order.
* Shipping costs are calculated automatically during checkout.

Selecting expedited shipping during checkout does not ensure a faster processing time. Your product may still need the production time stated after the order is placed to be handmade. Each item’s production time can be found in the product’s listing details.
