Order arrival schedule

All orders arrive after the order is processed by the Maker, and then shipped by the Maker with the postage that you purchased. Example:
On Nov 1st a customer orders a DIY Kit from Grow and Make with Standard Shipping. In the shipping tab of the Grow and Make product page it is listed that it takes 1-2 days to process an order. Two days later, on Nov 3rd the package is shipped and will arrive within 3-5 business days (based on the chart above).

Other costs

All perishable items incur an additional charge of $5 to guarantee perfect arrival. This might include specially insulated shippers and ice-gel packs to keep items cool until arrival. We cannot ship perishable items outside the contiguous 48 states.

Where products ship from

We use a method called drop-shipping, which means that instead of having a warehouse where we hold our inventory, our artisans keep their own inventory and send products directly to you when you order them. This eliminates an extra shipping stage and also allows the artisans to retain more profit.

Shipping carriers

Products will be shipped directly from the artisan to you via UPS, USPS, & Fedex.
