I ship via USPS and can combine shipping on multiple orders. I charge actual shipping costs and will refund extra outside of a small handling charge.
For international orders:
Buyer is responsible for customs duties and fees. I place actual item price on customs form and will not mark items as gifts. Usual shipping time is 7 to 10 days if it gets through customs without delay. If customs does delay the shipment I have no control or knowledge of how long it might take. It may go through in a day or it may take a month. Shipping times are not guaranteed unless you pay for a guaranteed shipping method which costs a lot.
UK customers, for some reason shipping has been taking longer than other destinations with packages being stuck in customs for at least a week longer than the 7-10 day timeline mentioned above. And please remember that you will most likely need to pay customs duties/fees/taxes as the UK seems to charge every merchandise over a set price which may be $25, but I'm not sure.
Tracking is not available for my quoted international shipping prices. If you want tracking for an international order please contact me for price. Tracking requires Priority mail international which costs around twice as much as my standard shipping method, first class international. First class does not show tracking other than the date that it was accepted by the post office.
If purchasing a large print plus another item:
Because of their size and shape, the large prints (12x16-12x18) most likely will need a separate package if bought with anything but other prints. If bought with additional prints I will combine their packaging and will gladly refund any unused shipping fees.
Because of this item's size I can only combine shipping with 8x10 or 9x12 prints. The giant squid completely fills a 12x12x12 box, which is the maximum size box for the lower shipping rates. For most items it would be cheaper to ship separately. So please let me know if you plan to order additional items and your zip code so I can adjust the listing. Depending on your location adjustment might not be needed. Plus the closer you live to the west coast, the cheaper the shipping charge as I will refund extra shipping. Also let me know if you would prefer parcel post which may take longer but would save you a couple dollars.
