Shipping fees include the postal cost and the packaging
I only accept PAYPAL which allows you to pay using your credit or debit card even if you don't have an account with them.
My one-off pieces are shipped with a tracking number, so the shipment is a little more expensive. My reproduction prints, subscriptions and cards are shipped without tracking to try to keep shipping prices as low as possible. Please note I'm not responsible for lost mail and I will not refund you without the tracking number shipment.
I try to ship orders asap, it normally takes 3-4 working days, for available items. Made to order items might take 1/2 weeks before ready to ship.
