The time I need to prepare an order for shipment varies. For details, please see individual items.
ESTIMATED SHIPPING TIMES
I will do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but cannot guarantee them. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose and any unforeseen delays on the part of USPS, my main shipping provider.
Canada: 1-3 weeks
United States: 3-5 business days
Europe: 1-4 weeks
Australia/New Zealand: 1-4 weeks
CUSTOMS & IMPORT TAXES
You are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I’m not responsible for delays due to customs.
World of Words is not responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen packages. Delayed scanning by USPS is beyond our control once the package leaves our premises. Please allow 48 hours for USPS to update their tracking.
Please understand if you are in a country other than the US that you will be responsible for any taxes, customs fees, or other amounts levied by your home country. Please check with your customs office/postal service if you are concerned about possible tariffs. World of Words is not responsible for these fees or if your package gets held in customs because you haven’t paid your fees.
If your package is in customs and not picked up by you within a reasonable amount of time they will ship it back to me and you will not receive a refund if your item was a custom or personalized piece. If you would then like your package shipped back out to you, you will need to pay for shipping again.
