HERE ARE SOME TIPS, SUGGESTIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR SHIPPING YOUR RETURN!
YOU WILL NEED:
A RIGID CARDBOARD BOX of some sort - is truly best for safe packing!
please enclose items in plastics to protect from damage
if you're paying priority mail many types of boxes are easily available for free at the postoffice!!
You can also ship online at www.usps.com and get a cheaper rate!!
You cannot ship within the United States online first class mail
You can do this from within paypal, however if you have received a payment from the person you're maiing
OR you can access their multi-order shipping application allowing to create any label.
So, if you use www.usps.com
you can pre print your label
you can pick up the box if needed - at the post office
Box should be sealed carefully with tapes!
If you print a label be prepared to apply it to package with tape
They sell tape if needed - post offices do not provide tape for free.
You may wish to hand write your address to / from information directly on the box in case there is loss of mailing label
Please include information about the return
If an item is to be remade - PLEASE include a line drawing sketch of what is desired.
Please include a telephone number for discussion!
Some post offices have machines that will weigh and print a label - and also have boxes
So bring your tape!!
Please do not use the plastic soft side TYVEK bags or a BUBBLE MAILER
UNLESS you have put the silk into rigid cardboard inside these above containers.
This may impact your credit applied for your return !!!
If you wish to receive credit and not have the goods arrived as damaged
It is very important to follow proper packaging guidelines.
If you need help, just ask.
A mailing label can be emailed if needed. If it is meant to be paid for by you (for example you decide you don't like it and want to exchange, the mailing return cost would be yours) A mailing label simply emailed as .pdf to open and print.
put in a 'variable rate' plain box of your own or one from the usps (simply this IS not a flat rate box) and then you can pack in whatever box is convenient.
It will be under the pound rate - with the box -- if just a small items or even 1 pair of fans.
This is important if you are shipping online to preprint your label if you do not have a scale.
If you wish to estimate postage for some popular products:
