ANSWER: You can view an estimate of shipping costs by viewing your cart and proceeding to checkout. Final shipping costs will be displayed on the invoice you see BEFORE confirming your order. Coupon codes for shipping promotions MUST be entered on the final checkout page.
QUESTION: Do you ship internationally?
ANSWER: Yes, we do ship internationally. Standard mail takes approximately 2-5 weeks. Our Priority mail upgrade takes approximately 6-10 business days (excluding weekends). We also offer 3-6 business day express mail service at an additional extra cost. We protect your privacy by writing generic descriptions of the package contents on the customs form. For example, if you order a Gay Pride Flag, we will only write: "3x5 flag" or "cloth flag" on the import/export documents.
QUESTION: My item was marked as "delivered" on the web, but I did NOT yet receive my shipment. What do I do?
ANSWER: This is a pretty common occurrence with USPS and other carriers. Many times during an "attempt at delivery", the post office marks as package as "delivered." Sometimes they forget to leave a note inside your mailbox informing you that they have attempted to deliver the package, and the mail carrier brings it back to the post office. Please visit your local post office and give them your package's tracking number. More than likely, they will have it in the back storage area. Also be advised, that sometimes it takes 48-72 hours after an initial attempt for the to post office to attempt a second delivery. If you believe a package has been stolen, then we will require you to visit USPS.com and file a mail theft complaint. This is a legal affidavit which is submitted to the postal inspector. Once you follow the steps below you must send us your claim number so we can verify the claim. Then we will reship or refund the order.

QUESTION: My coupon code did NOT work.
ANSWER: Some promotional coupon codes have a one time use limit, for these promotions, you MUST register or login to use the coupon. If that still does not work, the coupon may be expired. Please note that most coupon codes cannot be combined. If you attempt to enter more than one code at a time, the previously entered code may be set to inactive. Contact us if you have concerns. Please be advised that we DO NOT offer cash or refunds for unused or invalid coupon codes.
QUESTION: How do you package and ship items?
ANSWER: We protect your privacy by writing basic generic descriptions on all postal documents. For example, if you're an international customer and you order a "Gay Pride Rainbow Flag", we will only write: "3x5 cloth flag." We won't write any specific content descriptions. We NEVER write Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, etc. Due to a high volume of gift shipments, we never show any prices on our invoices (we only show product SKU numbers and descriptions). So, feel free to ship a gift to a friend. Please note: For some international orders we may be required to put a minimum value on the export documents over $50.00 USD.
