With my shop re-opening soon (I'm shooting for Friday, August 12th), I've been in the process of re-thinking everything. One thing that always seems to shoot me in the foot is shipping costs. With the price of shipping continuing to rise, it seems crazy to continue only offering USPS First Class with tracking on most of my items.
I decided to test out sending stickers + cards USPS Standard. This means I put a cute stamp on your envelope and you don't get a tracking number. I have used this method in the past for my Sticker of the Month Club, and never had any issues. This is cheaper for me and for you, since the items I sell don't weight much.
This is great news for international customers, because I can use a global stamp. A global stamp cuts the cost from an average $6+USD to $1.10 (or a couple dollars depending on the weight).
I know some people need to have a tracking number for their own piece of mind. I am making the option available with an add on listing or in special cases a custom listing. I will be using tracking on prints + fabric sales, since I can not easily replace those items.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns with these changes. And as always everything will be packaged with care + love! xo
