Your order may only include a lighter weight item or pattern. If this is the case we reserve the right to mail the domestic USA order via USPS First Class to save a few dollars in shipping costs. Refunds are always given if we ship First class, and we ship with a tracking number for reference. If you'd rather we ship the Priority Mail method as paid, please let us know right away.
Sometimes the quantity of items in an order makes for a heavy package. For international orders (including Canada) they may be shipped first class instead of priority mail due to weight. If over 4 pounds all orders are shipped Priority Mail as required by the USPS. As above, any overpaid shipping charges (plus handling) will be refunded.
