Shipping

We always try to get our clients their shipment as quickly as we possibly can. When you check out please ensure your shipping address is correct for Canada Post. We cannot be responsible if your order does not get to you because you have provided the incorrect address.

We ship with Canada Post, and shipping charges are based on dimensions and weight; however, often flat items (such as labels, geocoins and trackable tags) can be shipped in a more economical way.  To see if your order qualifies, check the restrictions here:

 

Economical Shipping within CANADA:

CANADA Flat Item / Flat Rate Shipping Restriction: Order must fit in a small padded envelope and be

  • less than 2cm (3/4") thick
  • less than 30cm long in either length or width
  • less than 500grams including the padded envelope

See below for examples.  Items shipped with this method will not include tracking or insurance.  If your package does not arrive in a timely manner, there is nothing we can do to check on the status of the parcel as there is no tracking number.  We cannot prevent or detect delays due to Canada Post, USPS or your local postal office; however, we have never had a parcel not arrive at the intended destination.
