Holiday Shipping Deadlines – for real and they are approaching fast!

*Domestic (Canada): December 15th, 2008
*United Sates: December 1st, 2008
*International: November 28th, 2008

Hi all!

Just a note to say that the above are the shipping deadlines for ordering art from my shop if you want your order to arrive in time for Christmas. And sadly, postal delays that are beyond my control do happen even when I get the packages to the post office on time. About 3% of orders that I ship out arrive much later than anticipated due to being held up in customs or other undetermined reasons. BUT all orders I’ve shipped out DO arrive to their final destination. :)

I can ship XpressPost or PriorityPost via CanadaPost if you miss these deadlines. You can contact me for the applicable rates on Etsy or by the email located in the sidebar on this blog. And conversely, I can upgrade you to XpressPost or PriorityPost if you want your order faster than the following times taken from my shop policies page on Etsy:

Canada – 3 days to 2 weeks
USA – 3 to 6 weeks (have yet to figure out why it is slow)
Europe – 2 to 4 weeks
Asia – 2 to 6 weeks
Australia – 2 to 6 weeks
All other international destinations – 2 to 6 weeks

(Average to everywhere other than Canada is about 9 days to 3 weeks. And there is that 3% that arrive in 5 to 6 weeks for some unknown reason. Please keep in mind that if your order is late that it will arrive. OK?)

All orders are shipped First Class Regular mail for flat items and Expedited or Small Parcel for larger 3 dimensional objects from New Brunswick, Canada. Shipping this way keeps costs lower for the both of us. If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you.
