All goods purchased via our online store will be delivered via Australia Post. We endeavor at all times to ship your orders in the most economical but secure manner. Australia Post will offer their choices for the products you have added to your shopping cart. Please choose carefully for the level of security, tracking and insurance you require, or how quickly you want your products.
Once the order has left our premises, it is deemed to be delivered. You will receive updates and tracking information from Australia Post if they are available. For lost or missing parcels please contact Australia Post using your tracking email details.
There is no tracking option for Letters - if you choose this option then we are unable to assist once it has left our warehouse.
For quicker delivery with tracking, please choose Express Post as your shipping method.
Our shopping cart calculates Australia Post shipping charges based on weight and measurement. Often we can improve these automated shipping rates by packing and recalculating total shipping or using other shipping methods. In this event we will always refund any excess shipping you have paid if we are able to. If you feel the rate is unusually high, please contact and we can calculate manually to see if we can improve the rate.
We have given an option named Letter rate. Note: this is for a flat paper pattern only. This is a cheaper rate for flat, light paper goods only (such as patterns) but is not registered nor trackable.
Note: If letter rate is selected we do not replace late or missing items and we cannot track your order in anyway. If selected for other shaped items your order will not be able to be processed until further shipping is paid.
We recommend choosing the insurance option during checkout so a registered post label is added to your letter for tracking purposes. For peace of mind this adds only a small extra fee.
Remember: if insurance is not selected on letter and parcel shipping rates we cannot track nor refund or resend your order if it does not arrive. Is it worth the risk?
If Letter rate is incorrectly selected for other shaped items your order will not be able to be processed until further shipping is paid.
Free shipping offer: for orders over AUD$100 - will be shipped standard non insured rates within Australia only - if you want tracking or insurance please choose another option. Note: free shipping is not included in recurring purchases (BOM etc) if subsequent months are not over the $100 limit. Note: The free shipping option may take up to 21 days to arrive.
