Shopping cart will provide estimate during checkout. Additional shipping may be billed based on final ship weight, dimensions and # boxes needed.
International Shipping Rates: Shopping cart will calculate based on your location and items in your cart during the checkout process. Postage of fabric samples internationally start at $4.00. International shipping quoted by our shopping cart does not include import duties, taxes, administrative brokerage/custom clearance fees that may be levied by your country and by the delivery company (post office, UPS, DHL, etc.). Buyer is responsible for any additional amounts charged by government agencies and delivery carriers for international shipments. Buyer is responsible for 2-way round trip shipping incurred if delivery is refused and/or unpaid duties/fees/taxes cause the package to be returned to sender.
International Shipments via US-based Freight Forwarders: If you specify a freight forwarder to receive your package, an additional $5.55 fee for signature required delivery will be billed to you. This is an additional security measure to verify receipt by your freight forwarder, who is responsible for sending the package to you overseas. At the time of delivery, UPS will require someone at the freight forwarding company to sign for the package. **This is a mandatory fee applying to orders shipping to freight forwarders from 5/14/22 onwards.**

Please let us know your deadline and we will do our best to make it happen. Keep in mind that our pillow covers are custom made-to-order for you. Some fabrics require special order from supplier. If there isn't enough fabric on hand to sew your order right away, rush production will not be possible.
We reserve the right to bill a 15% rush fee on orders requiring weekend work or a 24-hour turnaround time. For example, if you place an order on Friday and require it shipped by Monday, or if you place an order on Wednesday and require it shipped Thursday.
To avoid disappointment, please first check with us as to the feasibility of a rush order before making your purchase.
Express next day shipping methods are not covered by our standard shipping rates and will be billed separately.
