Shipping and General Information
How long will it take to get my beading supplies package?
Orders are shipped using Canada Post. Orders are processed within 1 to 3 business days. Larger orders over $250 may take longer. Earring orders take 2-5 business days to create, Medallions approx. 7 days. All products will ship within 3 days. (Some exceptions are holidays or large orders). Please plan ahead for custom orders.
Tracked package/order is assigned a tracking number from Canada Post, which will be emailed to your inbox. For delivery to some international countries, it may not be possible to track your parcel past the point of exit of Canada, as the postal provider in your country may not provide this service.
For your peace of mind, Carie McBain Creations & Supplies has removed any non-tracked shipping. Your package will be shipped using tracked shipping of your choice. We are please to announce that all orders over $200 before taxes will receive "FREE" shipping.
How much is standard shipping?
Shopify takes care of all this. Shipping costs for all orders are calculated automatically at checkout based on weight and location. Tracked mail within Canada and USA is automatically calculated based on weight of packages. For those remote area's in Canada that have expensive shipping rates we have added a flat box rate anywhere in Canada. This guarantee's that your shipping will not exceed $22.00 if selected.
Every Country has different shipping times and delivery methods. USA order can take up to 2-6 weeks. Please allow yourself enough time if shipping Internationally. We can work with you to facilitate the fastest turnaround possible.
What materials are used for beadwork orders?
All earring findings are nickel free and hypoallergenic. You can choose gold upon request. I use pellon beading felt or goodfelt. It’s lightweight and very durable. You can choose from different leather (Deer or Moose) or pretty sparkly backing. All of my creations are handmade by myself and will be posted on my social media for showcase.
How long will it take to get my beadwork shipped?
Please allow time for my creation process, customized beadwork orders of earrings will take 3-5 business days to create for each set. This depends on how busy I get with orders. Your item will be shipped within 1-3 business days of creation.
How do I get a customized Carie McBain Creations & Supplies beadwork order?
Please use my custom order link and let me know the style/type/colour choice (or a Carie McBain Creations & Supplies picture from instagram) that you would like to be recreated. If you have an item you wish to match please send a photo of this item. It will help my creation process. An estimate quote will be created based on time and supplies. All beadwork orders must be paid in full once the quote is agreed upon, and an invoice will be sent to your Carie McBain Creations & Supplies account email. Once paid, it will take 3-5 Business days per item ordered or an agreed upon time. A general idea for cost is $20 an hour plus supplies, for example an earring can take three hours to complete from start to finish, plus $5 in supplies will equal to $65.00 plus shipping costs.
When does my package get shipped?
Orders are shipped weekly on Monday to Friday with the exception of public holidays. Canada Post is NOT open locally on the weekends.
**NOTE** We do NOT ship on weekends. If you choose Priority Post your package will be mailed out on the next business day. EG: If you order Friday night your package will be shipped on Monday morning.
