It’s no shocker that Covid’s tentacles have reached into almost every area of life. For us, that means really “fun” things like shortages of gold and silver and rising costs of shipping goods out of our studio. We wanted to create this tab to tell you what to expect when it comes to shipping your Pressed order this holiday season!
- TRANSIT TIMES: Typically, we ship via USPS or UPS. Historically, that has meant transit times of 2-3 business days on average. We encourage you to plan for more wiggle room with shipping! None of us actually knows how the mail system will be able to keep up at Christmas in a pandemic in the era of online shopping. HA! We’d hate for your items to not reach you by your special events, so take longer transit times into consideration this year.
- CALCULATING COSTS: We determined the best way to charge for shipping was to go by weight. The website will total the weights of your items and add shipping accordingly. Things like vinyl stickers, if ordered alone, will receive free shipping since they can be sent in a regular envelope.
For items with weight, here is our 3-tier shipping cost structure:
Under 1lb = $4
1lb – 4 lbs = $8
4+lbs = $12
Our best tip for shipping? Make the most of Tier 2! Once you hit the 1lb mark, you can add quite a bit of goods to your cart before the shipping cost would bump to the next tier.
3. GIFT WRAPPING: We are so thrilled to be offering GIFT SHIPPING this year!! We knew that, most likely, distance might be keeping you from traveling to see everyone on your Christmas list this year. So, we designed and screen-printed muslin bags in our studio that say “Open On December 25th” and we letterpressed some “Merry Christmas” To/From tags. For just $5, you can add gift shipping to your order and we will wrap it beautifully and send it to its final destination, completely hands-free for you. We’re calling this idea “From Our Studio To Their Tree”. Watch this video we filmed that shows you exactly how this works!
