How do you ship?

We offer untracked and tracked shipping options. Upgrading to tracked shipping for peace of mind or faster delivery is recommeded. We offer free shipping on Canada orders over $60 and over $100 for US orders (after discounts). Shipping method is determined in the following:

Canada: all orders that weighs less than 400g goes by untracked lettermail* and everything over 400g (orders over $115) goes by tracked parcel (Canada Post).

US: orders that weight less than 200g goes by untracked lettermail* (via USPS) and orders over 200g goes by tracked parcel (Canada Post, UPS or USPS).

*untracked lettermail means once the package is in the postal system, we cannot track its whereabouts.

Do you ship internationally?

As of right now we don't have enough bandwidth to handle international orders, so we only ship to Canada and the US. One day as the business grows, we'll offer international shipping! Meanwhile, if you know a retailer in your city that would be perfect to carry our products, let us know!
