For the foreseeable future we will be shipping twice a week, on Wednesdays and Fridays or Saturdays. When your order ships you will receive a “completed” notice and a separate notice with a USPS tracking number.
Due to new forms and policies implemented by the USPS in 2023, we are suspending most international shipments until further notice. At this time we ARE shipping to Canada because that does not present a problem. If you are in Europe, you can order from our stockists there. Many customers in other parts of the world order via forwarding services in the US. In that case, we will ship to the forwarder at no cost to you. It is unfortunate that everything becomes more complicated all the time, but it is beyond our control. .
Shipping and packaging costs continue to increase, and we cannot continue to pay more for shipping than the amount of your sample purchases. For that reason, we instituted a minimum purchase amount of $ 5.00 for US orders and $25 for international orders. This means that if you place an order below the minimum, it will be cancelled and refunded. If you want a single sample (or just a few samples internationally), you can ask to be billed for the shipping charges, but this would probably be less cost-effective for you than buying a few samples or one of the multi-sample packs.
On all US purchases above the minimum, we will continue to offer free US shipping for the foreseeable future.
