Shipping Costs

All shipping costs are calculated based upon the current national standards used by USPS Priority Mail and United Parcel Service based upon the weight and zone of your completed order.  The final figure is then added to your purchase prior to checkout.  It is at this time that you will be given the opportunity to add shipping insurance for a nominal fee.  Again, it is strongly suggested that you consider this to make your shopping with Creative Handz a pleasant experience.
