Shipping & Local Pickup

  • LOCAL PICKUP

I live in echo park 90026 & pickup can be arranged at my house on the weekends.  You can also pickup from me during the week at whatever studio/location where I am working.  I do not do pickups at my house before 9am or after 6pm out of respect for my family.  Please respect that.  Otherwise,  I am very happy to save you money on shipping by meeting you at my home or work.  Once you enter a local Los Angeles zip code on the preliminary checkout page, the “local pickup” option appears at the checkout page.  If you check that button, you will not be charged for shipping.  I will contact you to find out when/where you want to meet.


DOMESTIC SHIPPING RATES

I only ship domestic orders USPS priority mail,  INSURED & SIGNATURE REQUIRED.

The shipping rates for this service varies between $15-25.

The cost may be higher but if your order is lost or damaged, it is the only way I can get your replacement paid for by USPS.

I will send you the tracking info from USPS.

I highly recommend you sign up for email or text updates from USPS for your package.

the post office seems to have recently changed its policy. they now only attempt delivery once. YOU have to request redelivery through the website. if you don’t sign up for the notifications, you will miss the window of opportunity & they will send your order back to me.

at that point you will have the option for a refund (minus shipping) or pay $15 for shipping again. this has the potential to be a lengthy & annoying process so please, get the tracking updates!


INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING RATES

I always ship international orders Global Express Guarantee (GXG) which costs around $100.

GXG is picked up in the states by USPS but delivered overseas by FedEx.

GXG is more expensive than other USPS options but it is the only one that can be insured & tracked outside the US.

USPS international shipping options


3RD PARTY SHIPPING

I will ship UPS, FedEx or DHL if you email me a shipping label.

Enter the coupon code “iwillpayforshipping” at checkout & chose “Customer Provides Shipping Label.”

due to the distance of the drop locations, using any other service besides USPS may cause a delay in shipping


USE AT YOUR OWN RISK

a final international shipping option could be usps priority express for around $75 or usps priority for around $35.

while cheaper, neither of these options are trackable or insurable.

consequently, I DO NOT RECOMMEND using these services.

furthermore, lost packages will not be refunded or replaced for free.  buyer beware.
