HOLIDAY 2020 DELIVERY DETAILS
Throughout the holiday season we continuously expedite ALL orders for prompt delivery. This year that is more true than ever, as we are also working to navigate COVID safety in our studio and possible delays with shipping carriers.
All orders placed by Wednesday, December 16, 2020 at 11:59pm ET will be expedited for delivery by Christmas Eve with our FREE standard shipping within the US per postal service calendar guidelines.*
After this date, contact us to confirm product availability and to arrange a rush prior to placing your order. All other orders will be scheduled to arrive in January.
We also offer Gift Certificates delivered by email- a great last minute option that arrives instantly!
*Due to unprecedented delays, we have been advised that many parcels are not being scanned when accepted by the postal service or as the parcel travels from location to location. Tracking may only be updated upon delivery. Your package leaves our studio when you receive your tracking number via email. We can not be responsible for shipping delays once your parcel has been handed off to USPS.
We know how special keepsakes and gifts are-- especially at this time of year. We are diligently at work in our studio, around the clock, giving extra love and care to every item we create and processing orders as quickly as possible.
We know that the folks at the post office are doing their part, too, with fewer employees and greater demand than ever before.
We appreciate your patience and understanding, and we thank you for making Paloma's Nest a part of your holiday traditions!
Please note that Custom House Portraits must be ordered by November 20 for delivery by Christmas Eve.
NEED TO CONTACT US?
You can reach us by email at mail @ palomasnest.com and we will respond promptly. Chat is also available by clicking on the pale blue chat icon at the lower left hand corner of your screen.
Every item description in our shop lists the "timing” for that specific design. This is the time it takes for your order to be crafted or prepared for shipment. “Crafting Time” does not include shipping to your location.
Expedited Crafting means we will craft your order in 10 business days or less and is available for some items.
If you need an item in a hurry, or want to be sure it will reach you by a certain date, please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will do our best to answer any questions and accommodate your request. Additional fees may apply for expedited crafting and/or express shipping.
We ship worldwide! Our FREE Standard Shipping within the US is via First Class Mail. Upgrades to Priority Mail or Express Shipping are also available during the checkout process. Delivery confirmation is included for all US shipments.
Please note that shipping times DO NOT include the in-studio Crafting Time required for your order to be created. The Crafting Time for your item can be found in the item description page of each design. If you are unsure of when your item will arrive, please contact us for assistance.
We are not able to refund for or replace lost packages that have been confirmed as "accepted," “in transit” or "delivered" by the carrier, or for orders that arrive late due to a postal service error or system-wide delay.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING DETAILS
Orders to international addresses with Standard Shipping are sent via First Class Mail with the US Postal Service. (Express upgrades are also available). First Class Mail service does not offer tracking, and can not be guaranteed for a specific delivery date due to unavoidable delays in customs or within your local postal service. Average transit time to most countries is 2-3 weeks; however many locations take longer. There is no insurance on this shipping method, and we do not refund for lost/unclaimed/undeliverable packages, or for orders that do not arrive by a specific date due to a delay in customs. Taxes and duty fees are the sole responsibility of the recipient.
GIFT WRAPPING & NOTES
Every Paloma’s Nest piece is designed to be cherished, and every detail is lovingly addressed. Each item that leaves our studio is hand wrapped in our Signature Gift Packaging, ready to give as a gift or to pack away as an heirloom when the time comes. We can add a gift note to any order for you, or can ship a gift directly to the recipient. Just be sure to leave us the message during the checkout process.
Occasionally we offer promo codes or other discounts valid in our shop for a limited time. If you have a promo code to use, it must be entered at the time of your order. We can not apply the discount to orders that have already been placed. Discounts can not be combined with other offers.
RETURNS and ORDER CHANGES
All orders are considered to be a Final Sale. An exception to this is an error made on our part that deviates from your original order (such as incorrect spelling of a name or date). If you receive an item with an error made on our part, please contact us within 3 business days to arrange a return and/or replacement at our discretion.
Due to the highly customized, labor intensive nature of our designs, if we have already begun crafting a personalized item for you, we are not able to change or cancel the pending order. If you need to modify your order, please contact us within 12 hours.
Please note that every item is handcrafted, one at a time, in our studio, by real hands. Real artisans. There may inevitably be variations in text layout, spacing, and arrangement of letters. There are no machines, lasers or computers used in creating your Paloma’s Nest item. Please do not expect, for example, your item to be perfectly round in shape, or for the stamping to be as straight as a ruler. We consider this to be the charm of the handcrafted piece. We do not ship any product that does not meet or exceed our standards.
Here at Paloma's Nest we specialize in custom designs that are perfect for corporate gift-giving and as client gifts for professionals in many industries. We offer special pricing on orders of ten items or more, and additional discounts to businesses and vendors looking to give a gift of thanks to their colleagues and clients that reflects their brand. Please contact Caroline at email@example.com to start the process of designing or selecting the perfect gifts to represent your business!
