Depending on the size of the item, I ship Priority USPS Mail or UPS in the States. I will also ship internationally but will need the destination country to calculate the shipping charges.
All items will be insured for cost of purchase given their uniqueness .
For international shipments, I use Priority International or First Class Mail. Priority International has a tracking number, but not all countries scan packages. You may prefer regular First Class International mail, which is just as secure.
All International Customers receive sharp, clear photos of their paid customs form, declaration and postal receipts.
All items will be packaged using the best methods available to prevent any damage while in transit. When appropriate I provide, tracking information, dates, and or address information needed.
