Within the continental U.S.: Orders are shipped UPS Ground (USPS for P.O. boxes), are fully insured, and boxed together (if possible) to save resources. A tracking number will be emailed to you. Rates are based on standard UPS ground charges.
Alaska and Hawaii: Shipping costs are determined by weight, size, destination, and the shipping method you choose when you place your order. Our primary method of shipping is UPS ground, with all items fully insured, but shipping via USPS is often the less expensive option for items going to Alaska and Hawaii. If you have any questions, please email or call us at (360) 379-4714.
International: USPS is used for small overseas orders; shipping costs vary and and will be confirmed via email. A shipping company will be arranged for large overseas orders.
Do you ship to P.O. boxes?
Yes. If you supply a P.O. box as your address, your order will be shipped via the US Postal Service, as UPS (our primary method of shipping) does not deliver to P.O. boxes.

How long will it take to receive my purchase?
We usually ship orders within 3 weeks, though many orders go out within 1–2 weeks from the date of purchase. Actual shipping time depends on the destination and the method you chose when you placed your order. Please allow extra time during the holiday season.

If I need an item faster than 3 weeks, can I get it sooner?

How do you calculate shipping costs?
Shipping costs are determined by weight, size, destination, and the shipping method you choose when you place your order. Our primary method of shipping is UPS ground, with all items fully insured.
Items shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, and international destinations will most likely be shipped via USPS (unless otherwise specified at checkout), as it is often the less expensive and preferred option for customers. If you have any questions, please email or call us at (360) 379-4714.

How do I care for my Kata Golda item?
Your Kata Golda item is best stored out of direct sunlight, to prevent fading and aging.
