There has been a large surge of delivery/lost mail issues within the postal system. We have received many emails from customers stating either their packages have not been delivered (they appear to stop moving within the postal system) or packages have been marked as delivered when, in fact, customers did not receive their packages (most likely delivered to the wrong address.). Please know that there is nothing that we can do on our end to rectify postal delivery issues. Once we turn over packages to the postal service, packages become their responsibility. All shipments departing our shop have tracking labels with tracking numbers. Once your package ships, you will always receive a shipping notification if you furnished your email address under your account, which is highly recommended. Until things settle down during the ongoing COVID-19 issue, we highly recommend obtaining Route+ insurance to protect your purchases. The cost if extremely affordable and the coverage is unbeatable. We receive no compensation for this service. All First Class USPS packages are not insured by the postal service. For heavier shipments sent via Priority Mail, only the first $100 is covered by through the postal service. We can't stress enough to be wise and select the optional Route+ insurance during checkout. We cannot add this once your order has been finalized.
If you choose to opt out of Route+ insurance coverage, please know that we cannot be responsible for lost, damaged or stolen packages. We advise that you contact your local post office for assistance.

If you have a discount or voucher code that is valid on a current sale or applicable to a valid order amount (does not apply on expired sales or purchases made prior to a sale), send us an email at email@example.com or text us at 859-576-4677 (please include your full name so we'll know who we're chatting with), and we'll gladly issue you a refund for the appropriate discount amount.
What are Lavinia Stamps?
These craft stamps are exclusive to Lavinia Stamps Ltd. located in Ruthin, Wales, and designed by Artist Tracey Lavinia Dutton.
The clear polymer resin used to manufacture these stamps enables them to cling onto an acrylic block (not included in this listing) without the need for adhesive. All designs are supplied flat on a sheet of protective acetate and easily peel off ready for use. Once you have completed your project, simply peel your stamps off the acrylic block. After a quick wash, they are ready to be popped back onto the protective acetate sheet for easy storage. It is advisable to store your stamps in a dry, cool, dark place. Any type of indoor light or sunlight may, in time, effect the polymer. Do not use any solvent-based inks or cleaners as this could damage the quality of your stamps. To clean your polymer stamps, we suggest alcohol-free baby wipes.
Tracey Lavinia Dutton has asserted her right to be identified as the Artist of this work in accordance with the Copy Designs and Patents Act 1988.
Does Lavinia Stamps Ltd. have an Angel Policy?
Yes. The Angel Policy allows the use of stamps to create handcrafted items for sale, providing that the images are hand-stamped and not mechanically produced.
What are your shipping policies?
We pride ourselves with our quick processing of orders. Our goal is to dispatch orders within 1-2 business days. We ship via the USPS and charge shipping based on the weight of a package. Customers are charged exactly what it costs us to ship a package based on the USPS rates. We do not inflate shipping costs. In the event you are overcharged for shipping costs, we gladly issue refunds immediately for shipping overages should they occur. We monitor this practice on every order during the creation of shipping labels.
For heavier items, such as multi-packs of cardstock, our system is designed to switch to a more cost-effective shipping method for you which is Priority Flat Rate 2 Day Shipping once the weight of a package contents exceeds 16 ounces. This rate will be reflected in your cart. Our goal is to keep shipping costs to a bare minimum with you in mind.
Do you offer free shipping?
Yes. Effective October 19th, 2020, we currently offer free domestic shipping in the USA on orders over $50.00.
What is your return policy?
We happily accept returns as long as the product is unopened, unused and in brand new condition, including the original packaging. A full refund, not including shipping, will be issued and item(s) must be returned within 7 days of receipt. Return shipping is the buyer's responsibility and will not be reimbursed. It is highly advisable to purchase tracking information as we cannot be responsible for lost or undelivered returned items.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, we ship worldwide. Each country's customs department reserves the right to inspect parcels and an inspection could delay the transit time of your order. In addition, we cannot guarantee that tracking information will be updated regularly on the USPS website for international packages. There may be some items not allowed to be imported by your country. We advise you to make yourself familiar with these items. We are not responsible for packages not permitted through customs in your country. First Class International Mail typically takes 14-21 business days to arrive but could be delayed due to COVID.
Why hasn't my order shipped?
Your order may be held up by a reserve or a pre-order item. If you ordered a reserve or a pre-ordered item, the entire order will be held until that item is in stock. We attempt to make this very clear in the reserve or pre-ordered listing details. Keep in mind that most reserve or pre-ordered items are that of the newly released Lavinia Stamps as they become available to retailers from time to time. With this being said, we place our orders with Lavinia Stamps Ltd. located in the United Kingdom just as soon as the new designs are released. These specific orders can take quite some time to be fulfilled by Lavinia Stamps Ltd., depending on their workload and where our order comes into place in line. Typically, we have the new releases in-hand in 3 to 4 weeks from placing our order. In the event you do not wish to wait for your entire order containing in-stock items to ship, please place two separate orders; one order for in-stock items and a separate order for reserve or pre-ordered items.
