UNTRACKED SHIPPING VS. TRACKED SHIPPING

We now offer untracked shipping outside of Canada. If you choose untracked shipping, Mindmelt Studio is absolved of all liability of damage during shipping, or lost or stolen items. IF you choose choose UNTRACKED shipping, if ANYTHING goes wrong with your order AFTER it leaves our studio, we will NOT issue refunds or replace your order. 

The Tracked Shipping option is the safest option for your order. Tracked shipping provides insurance on your order and a tracking number so you can stalk your package online (every few minutes if needed). If it is damaged in transit, lost, or stolen from your porch, we will be able to replace your order or offer a refund.
