Shipping Details

Shipping to US and US Territories:

For orders within the USA, we offer USPS (low-cost, relatively reliable shipping dates) and UPS (higher cost, very reliable shipping dates) shipping options.

United States Postal Service (USPS) domestic shipping: Low cost, and typically reliable except during the holiday season or other times of heavy demand, when delivery times can slip drastically.  

  • Economy Shipping (USPS First Class): standard crafting time, and then 2-6+ days in transit. NOTE: free economy shipping does not include replacement of lost/damaged/stolen-in-transit goods. You are rolling the dice with the USPS/porch pirates.
  • Standard (USPS First Class): Same shipping speed as Economy.

UPS domestic shipping:  Higher cost, higher reliability, date-specific delivery. 


International Shipping:

Please note: International economy shipping is unreliable in terms of delivery date, package tracking, and possible fees assessed by customs officers.  We include the required paperwork, but sometimes packages can and will sit in customs offices for weeks and weeks before clearance and delivery.  There is NOTHING that we can do to hurry these packages along or get you more information about where your package is.  If you want to follow your package, and know when it will arrive, please select the FedEx options.  Overall, we have had great luck with our low-cost economy international shipping options, but customs delays DO happen–particularly during the holidays–so please be aware of that BEFORE ordering. Additionally, any customs duties/fees/VAT imposed by governmental authorities or local carrier shall be the customer’s responsibility (contact us with questions or concerns on this point).

Form•Function•Form shall not be responsible for loss damage, or theft of any order shipped internationally via USPS/your-local-government-postal-carrier.  No refunds shall be offered on international shipping fees/product charges due to delays in transit or lost/stolen merchandise shipped via USPS.  For guaranteed delivery dates and packages insured against loss, theft, and damage, please use the FedEx delivery options. CUSTOMS OFFICES IN YOUR COUNTRY CAN CAUSE EXTREMELY LONG DELAYS AT TIMES. THIS IS BEYOND OUR CONTROL, and unfortunately there is nothing we can do if your USPS order is taking a long time.  If you need an order in a timely manner, we suggest FedEx.

  • Economy shipping via USPS First Class Package International (about $15; price varies by location and shipment weight, add products to cart to find your exact shipping fee–free with $150 order): standard crafting time, plus 10-30+ days in transit (customs dependent, NOTE: customs delays are possible and completely unavoidable from our end.  If your country’s customs office is slow, or backed up–particularly during the holidays–your package will simply sit until they get to it).
  • Expedited via UPS and or DHL Express (price varies by location, depending on weight): Priority crafting (same day crafting and shipment if there is physically time to make and ship your order before the last pick up of the day at 5:15 pm EST), plus 1-5 business days in transit.
