I’m so sorry for the lack of blog updates lately. Between my traveling and mountains of dirty laundry, I’ve gotten a bit behind. However, I am on Facebook and Twitter daily and I’ve been reading the growing complaints about our International Shipping rates. I’ve been very honest by letting everyone know that I am just as frustrated as you are about our rates. We use FedEx for all of our shipping and we charge our customers exactly what FedEx charges. I would like to set the record straight and let you know that we do not make any profits on our shipping. Unfortunately FedEx’s International rates are very high. Many of you have asked me why we don’t mark the customs form as a gift? We know that would significantly decrease the shipping charges and many companies do that. However, if we did that and we got caught, we would get in trouble. I have always been the type to do things by the book, the right way. Unfortunately, in this case, that leaves us with high shipping rates to other countries, even to the US states Alaska and Hawaii because they are not on the mainland.
I want to assure all of our fans that we are working on adding more options for shipping on all orders, Domestic and International. However, in the meantime, I would like to point out that several of our items are available via our retail partners at Think Geek and Hot Topic and they DO ship to several different countries. It is my goal that Fangirls all over the World will eventually be able to buy our products on our website, until then Think Geek and Hot Topic has you covered! Like this brand new Star Wars shirt that’s exclusive to Think Geek. This is a super soft, retro logo tee. It’s not burned out like our other logo tee and it’s on a really pretty purple, heather t-shirt. Just a designer tip, this shirt does run small. I would suggest going up one size.
These other items are also available at Think Geek.
These items are available at Hot Topic
Thank you so much for your continued support and patience! I’ll keep you posted on any and all updates, but in the meantime, I hope you’ll continue to support us at Think Geek and Hot Topic!
All my best,
