Shipping: Once shipped, Grae Matter is not responsible for any lost, damaged, or stolen packages. If you would like to add insurance to protect against these instances, please notify me before placing your order. If an issue arises, please be sure to contact your local USPS officefor information on your parcel. Tracking will be emailed if you have provided an email address at checkout and through Paypal. Unfortunately, we cannot email tracking information if not presented at the time of checkout. No exceptions. Typically, shipping labels are printed in batches, so your label may show a delay in shipment details. Receiving a shipment notification does not mean your order has been shipped, but that the label has been created. Please contact your local post office regarding any issues after the order has been shipped. Any lost or damaged packages are up to the buyer/customer to file a claim with USPS.
International Shipping: We are currently only shipping to customers in the United States. We hope to later to expand!

If for some reason your shipping information is inaccurate, all changes must be emailed to email@example.com within 30 minutes of purchase with the email subject "Shipping Address Change (Order Name + Number)".
Order Changes: Please make sure to verify all items being purchased before checkout. Once your order is placed, all sales are final and no changes can be made. To be fair to all customers, no exceptions.
Discounts + Store Credits: Any discount codes must be presented at checkout to be valid. Discount codes are not valid on previous purchases. Only one discount may be used per transaction. Store credits cannot be combined with discounts.
