Shipping/Policies

 

SHIPPING

Shipments go out at least twice a week - most consistently on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Domestic shipping - You are given a choice between USPS First Class, USPS Priority, or FedEx Ground. You will receive a shipping confirmation with a tracking number once your order ships. 

Orders shipped via USPS First Class will typically take 1-5 business days, depending on your location, while orders shipped via USPS Priority typically take 1-3, depending on location. UPS/Fedex Ground will take up to 5 business days but is the most reliable and is our recommended choice. Insurance is not included by default.

International Shipping - You are given a choice between USPS First Class (up to 3.75 lbs), USPS Priority, or FedEx International Economy. First Class International transit times differ from country to country but typically run around 10-14 business days. USPS Priority International is anywhere from 6-10. FedEx International Economy will be 4-6 business days.

Please note that tracking for First Class International shipments stop when the package leaves the US. Once it leaves the country, it is essentially in the hands of the destination country's custom/postal service. Teranishi Studio cannot be held responsible for packages held in customs and it will be the customer's responsibility to claim and recover packages from customs.

We very strongly recommend FedEx for international shipments as it is by far the most reliable service. We understand the price is quite high so we offer USPS International only as a courtesy to our customers. Customer assumes responsibility for custom fees incurred from imported products—Teranishi Studio is not responsible for any extra fees. 

Teranishi Studio is not responsible for packages lost or damaged in transit. The customer assumes responsibility for shipments. Please choose your shipping service accordingly. 

Shipping fees are non-refundable.
