Shipping Policies

Updated March 4, 2013

SHIPPING RATES FOR US: All screenprinted posters are sent USPS FIRST CLASS with DELIVERY CONFIRMATION and shipped in super-awesome sturdy Yazoo Mills tubes. All TIMBERRR! prints are shipped in flat mailers. All comics, stickers, etc are sent USPS FIRST CLASS in flat mailers. The shipping rates for the PayPal shopping cart break down like this:

0-$3.99 — $1.50
$4-$17.99 — $3.00
$18.00-$19.99 — $6.00
$20-$59.99 — $6.00
$60+ — $10.00

SHIPPING TURNAROUND TIME: I try to ship stuff within 3-5 business days of receiving the order. Please be patient. I’m a one-man operation and I’ve got illustrations ‘n’ graphic design stuff to do, too!

DOMESTIC: I ship all prints & posters w/ USPS delivery confirmation. I ship using USPS First Class.

CANADA: $11 International Economy

INTERNATIONAL: International buyers will pay $16… that usually covers the costs. All items are shipped by US Mail. International customers are responsible for any duties, taxes, or fees imposed beyond the US postage that I pay when shipping. It is the buyer’s responsibility to research and understand his or her own country’s rules and regulations regarding fees, duties, taxes, and what can be shipped into the country. DO NOT ASK ME TO CHECK “GIFT” ON THE CUSTOMS FORM. That’s illegal, and makes you look like a jerk for asking. And I know you’re not a jerk. You’re a good person.

CHECKS/MONEY ORDERS: If you would like to pay by check or money order, please email me first so I can hold aside your stuff for you. Orders paid by check will not be shipped until the check has cleared. Please make checks out to “Tom Pappalardo”. Send checks etc to PO BOX 880 Northampton, MA 01061-880

eCHECKS: If you pay via PayPal eCheck, that’s cool with me. But I will not ship until the eCheck clears, which is usually 3-5 business days.

ETSY: If you order something from me through my ETSY store, I will send you a confirmation email that includes the delivery confirmation number (if applicable). I prefer email communication over ETSY’s messaging service. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

POLICIES & COMMENTS: While I of course want to give you the finest art print possible (since you’re not only giving me money, but I also want you to like me), I want to remind y’all that my screen prints are hand-pulled and cut, so slight flaws or blemishes may occur, as well as slight variations in color. That’s what makes ’em cool. I double check all prints for pristine-ness before shipping. The CDs, digital prints, and comic books, on the other hand, are created by soulless robotic duplicating machines, and are therefore subject to greater scrutiny by the consumer.
