All items available for sale on my website are Made-to-Order (unless specifically labeled otherwise) and will be crafted after the order is placed. Note the estimated Lead Time shown on the black banner near the top of each page. While the item you purchase may actually be ready before the estimated time, it should not exceed the maximum amount of time listed.
If you would prefer to pay only a deposit upfront and pay the balance (including all shipping and taxes) just prior to the item being shipped, contact me to make arrangements.
All items are packaged to provide maximum protection during shipping.
The amount I charge for shipping is automatically calculated based on UPS's present shipping rates and covers my cost for shipping, packaging materials, and my time. The higher shipping cost for some of my items is due to the item's weight and /or bulkiness.
Due to the weight of my products, all items are shipped either via UPS Ground (or upon request, FedEx Ground).
I also now ship to Canada. Canadian customers, please be aware of the customs duties and taxes that must be paid prior to taking delivery of your order. These duties / taxes are paid directly to Canada Post or the shipping company and are not included in the Shipping Fee paid to Artisan Crafted Works.
