Shipping policy

Shipping and Processing

Order Processing can take Carys Cuttlefish Inc anywhere from 7-14 days for non-preorder items or up to 1-4 months for select pre-orders. Most of our wares are made by hand and therefore require we take our time in making the best product possible. Delays are to be expected during our high volume times . Inquiries about order timelines can be made to info@caryscuttlefish.com.

Due to the nature of some of our products such as prints, patches and stickers; these items will be subject to letter mail for the free shipping option and and will be exempted from receiving a tracking number. This is not disputable with Carys Cuttlefish Inc or Canada Post.

Shipping Rates

There will be charged shipping for all area's outside of Canada up to $125 CAD which orders that reach that threshold will be exempt from the shipping fee. However, we do purposefully charge shipping on large single items weighing 200 grams and upwards. Within Canada, orders will be shipped letter mail (unless they meet the 200 gram threshold for charged shipping) to keep our shipping rates free for customers within Canada. Shipping rates will also vary between provinces, states and countries as there is no standard shipping rate when shipping worldwide. Shipping charges are not disputable with Carys Cuttlefish Inc or Canada Post.
