Shipping Update: USPS Holiday Rate Increase For 2020
Hello all, we wanted to update y'all with something regarding USPS that has come to our attention this morning.
As a small business relying on almost exclusively online sales this year we rely on the USPS to move our packages all over the world to you all. Due to the ongoing struggles of the USPS they will be implementing a Temporary Holiday Rate Increase in shipping prices starting just before Samhain.
OCTOBER 18TH–DECEMBER 27TH USPS TEMPORARY RATE INCREASE:
- First Class Package: 25 cents/package
- Priority Mail (including Flat Rate, Regional Rate, and Cubic): 40 cents/package
- Parcel Select Ground: 40 cents/package
- Priority Mail Express: $1.50/package
We have not heard word on whether these increases will be the same or different for international postage but will update you if we learn more.
Please understand that we will have to raise our own shipping prices to meet these temporarily. We have always tried our best to keep prices as low as possible for you all. All our postage is calculated based on the weight of your package.
Please note that this also means we are going to be raising our prices for ALL ITEMS on Etsy for the holiday season as they require us to include shipping into the prices of all our items already.
Thank you, as always, for shopping with our small business. We love and appreciate you all. Let's make this holiday season the best one yet!!
