I didn't receive my order
Please email us: Hello@Handcraftedorder.com, quoting your order number from the confirmation email/SMS message. We'll help track down your order.
Can I pay extra to get my item quicker?
All items take between 1 and 3 business days to make, as we make everything to order. You can select Express shipping to have your item shipped via USPS Priority Mail within the USA. This will shorten the time it takes to receive your item once made.
What about customs fees/taxes?
We do our best to help ensure your item arrives as smoothly and quickly as possible, including labelling the package with all relevant information for customs authorities.
Changes to EU customs regulations means you may be charged sales tax (VAT) upon delivery of your order. Refer to your country tax authority for guidance on what fees are due on items shipped from the USA.
If fees are charged by customs, they are payable by the recipient.
Shipping insurance is offered at checkout. It's provided by ShineOn and covers you in case the item is lost, stolen, or damaged in transit. To make a claim, contact our support team.
Please note - shipping insurance is non-refundable once your order has shipped.

My item looks different to the online listing
This is a very rare occurrance. We make every effort to accurately represent all designs and products, though some listings make use of life-like renderings instead of photos to show how the item will look. This allows our sellers to create many different products with their artwork, without needing to make & photograph thousands of products a day.
It's possible you may have an item that is showing a defect, please take a few photos and send them to our support team for review, along with your order ID.
