1. Where can I track my order?
All the order shipments are followed with a tracking code. As soon as you place your order you will receive a confirmation email. This means that we have received your order in our system and authorized your credit card for purchase.
You will receive tracking information by email once your order is being produced prior to shipment. The order can be tracked here using the given tracking code.
Note that your ordered items may be sent from different warehouses or be kept by the customs for different periods so they may not arrive together in the same package or on the same day; though would normally be within the normal time frame.
2. How long is the shipping?
Each craft kit needs to be made on-demand as you order. When you order a kit, we have to make it in our art production and exhibition center in China. Once our artists have finished their job, we ship it with the shipping method of your choice.
- Processing Time: our designers and artists need time to produce each piece - expect around 7 business working days
Time frame = Processing time + shipping lead time:
So how long should you expect in total?
- International Air Saver : from 2 to 4 weeks.
- International Express : from 1 to 3 weeks; often 14 days. (available only at specific locations)
Depending on the location, custom clearances and the traffic of delivery service, the expected time frame to have the orders delivered varies. We strive to get your art tools to you as soon as possible, in fact, sooner than the above stated times whenever we can. We however do not have any control over the speed of shipment by delivery service providers nor the process and time line of custom clearance. They also have peak traffic that we have no control of. Please anticipate delays for orders placed in November and December.
It is not uncommon that the parcels are held by the customs for transit between 2 and 4 weeks particularly during peak delivery periods.
Ship from USA - applicable for specific items with the Ship From USA badge only
- Delivery Time : from 3 to 7 business days; peak season can require an additional lead time of 4 days
Note that products of the same order can reach at different times as the products can be shipped from different facilities.
3. My item tracking shows as delivered but I haven't received it? Is my item lost?
We use quality carriers such as the national postal service, trusted local couriers, UPS and DHL. However, some items are sometimes passed to neighbors or coworkers. If your order hasn't arrived within 60 days:
1) Check with neighbors, roommates or office coworkers in case they have taken your package by mistake.
2) Inquire with the designated local post office using your tracking code as the parcel is in their control as soon as it gets shipped out of our warehouse.
3) If none of these steps have worked, please contact us at email@example.com. We will figure something out!
Please be careful when entering the delivery address during checkout. If your parcel is sent to another address due to incorrect initial input; it is not possible to retrieve it and to resend to another address. A new order with a clear and correct address shall be required in this case.
