USPS Media Mail is only available to be used for books and magazines, if you choose this ship method for any other items, we will choose the next cheapest ship method available and charge accordingly.

**All shipping charges are for shipping and handling only, and do not include any duties, fees or taxes levied by the carrier. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the U.S. may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country ("Import Fees"). The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such Import Fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
***Smart Post is a joint venture by FedEx and the USPS, FedEx picks up packages in bulk and delivers to your local USPS hub, at which point the USPS delivers the package to you. For this reason tracking numbers will take a few days to register and you might not see any information during the transit time between FedEx and USPS.
Note:The Maker Shed is not liable for packages damaged or lost in transit. No refunds or replacements given for non-trackable shipments. We strongly recommend choosing a shipping method that offers tracking. Your order leaves our warehouse carefully packed, if you receive a package that is damaged, please file a loss claim with the carrier, not Maker Shed. We will be happy to support your claim in any way we can. Once your item is delivered by the carrier, it's safety is your responsibility. Maker Shed is in no way liable for theft or misplaced packages once delivered. If you are unable to be at home to take possession, please make arrangements with carrier, family, friends or neighbors. Your completed purchase is your acceptance of these terms.
