Thinking outside the box!
Shipping costs are continually changing, and shippers are slower than they used to be.
We ship all in-stock items within 2 business days, and sometimes the same day!
This excludes back-ordered glass because we need to make it first, but we keep you informed on the ETA in every case.
We ship our glass via USPS, and occasionally UPS Ground. Tracking is provided with either shipping method.
Packaged with Care:
We prefer to recycle boxes if they are still in sturdy condition, and we recycle package fill as well.
This is not only mindful of the planet, but sometimes our glass is an odd shape, size, or weight and the flat rate boxes from the post office just won’t work.
We use USPS 2020 flat rate prices. We have held these prices as long as possible, but we may need to consider an increase in 2023.
Here are the different shipping classes:
Jewelry = $4.20 for the first piece + $1.00 per each jewelry piece thereafter. So, it would cost $5.20 to ship 2 necklaces.
Small Flat Rate Box = $8.30 for the first piece + $2.00 per each piece thereafter.
Medium Flat Rate Box = $15.05 for the first piece + $2.00 per each piece thereafter.
Large Flat Rate Box = $21.10 for the first piece + $5.00 per each piece thereafter.
Examples of how our shipping prices are calculated when mixing glass types and sizes:
One necklace (jewelry rate of $4.20) + one candle holder (small flat rate box rate of $8.30) = $12.50
Oops, you forgot those earrings for Aunt Betsy! No problem, let’s look…
One necklace (jewelry rate of $4.20) + one candle holder (small flat rate box rate of $8.30) = $12.50 + $1.00 for Aunt Betsy’s earrings = $13.50 shipping total.
Thinking OUTside the Box:
How do YOU benefit from our combined 60 years of experience in glass shipping?
Here’s how we work to bring you fair pricing while maintaining safe glass packaging standards.
Getting Creative, we choose the tightest fitting box for the glass itself, and ignore the fact that bubble wrap/packaging materials can add up to 4″ to the box size.
This means shipping prices are as low as possible on our website.
If a glass piece is an inch too big for the typical flat rate boxes from the post office, and when bubble wrap adds up to 4″ to the box size, suddenly you are paying a lot more for shipping when the weight is virtually the same!
This is when our box and packaging recycling program comes into play. Yes, we purchase boxes and packaging materials, but it is worth it to get your glass to you safely. We maintain lower shipping prices by charging for the tightest fitting, less expensive box and we recycle boxes and packaging whenever we can.
Our Standards are High because:
We want you to have a pleasant “Customer Happiness” experience with us!
We love glass and truly care that your glass arrives safely to its forever home.
If you are local to Loon Lake, WA., and interested in keeping bubble wrap out of the landfill, please send us a note!
