Tax, Shipping, Cancellations, and Returns

Tax and Shipping Information

On all orders that are delivered to a California address we are required by law to collect California sales tax of 8%. When we ship to all other states, there is no sales tax.

All purchases are shipped from our Atascadero Studio by USPS or UPS to arrive within 3-14 business days from receipt of your order.

We charge a flat rate for shipping within the United States that is $6.95 for any shipment that is less than $45.00 (before sales tax is added) and all orders higher than $44.99 have free shipping in the USA.

Please allow up to 2 business days to process, and pack your order.

Orders are shipped Monday-Friday, excluding public holidays.

Your package comes from our Atascadero Studio so if you are in Canada or any other country we normally ship to (Japan, Switzerland, England, The Netherlands, Germany or France) your shipment may be stopped for inspection at the border by customs authorities. Normally this delays shipments for varying amounts of time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but delays of this nature are out of our control.

Normally shipments to other countries takes between 12 and 24 days.

Normally we are never “Out of Stock” since we make it fresh for you, however, we may be out of or delayed in getting our superior quality raw materials. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but this type of delay is out of our control.
