7. Shipping policy:
We do our best to get packages sent out within 72 hours of purchase. If you have a rush to get an item, please let us know when you place the order. We do not take responsibility for incorrectly entered addresses or lost/misplaced packages. If your item is damaged, please send photos of it to us. If it's on us, we will send a replacement or return the amount if a replacement is unavailable. If the damage was from the carrier, we can file a claim and try and get the money back, but we can't guarantee it. Regardless, we will do our best to do right by you <3

If you choose to ship via "Standard Envelope" or "Media Mail", please ensure your address is correct, as these options do not come with insurance, and we may not be able to replace the order for you. The "Standard Envelope" option does not come with tracking or insurance. This is an AT RISK shipment option as we will not replace lost orders under this shipping option.
