Stock items will leave the warehouse next day (excluding weekends and holidays). Please allow 60 days for international delivery of all handcrafted items. International shipments will require more complicated shipping procedures (i.e., customs, transit stations, etc) so it will take additional time for shipments to be processed through each stage. ORDER EARLY. Allow plenty of time.
CUSTOMS / DUTY FEES
International buyers are responsible for all customs/duty fees. Custom/duty fees are not included in the shipping costs. You will need to contact your local post office to inquire about custom and duty fees. It is recommended that you research these costs BEFORE you place your order so there are no surprises.

DMW cannot offer delivery guarantees. The delivery schedule is only an estimate of time based on information provided from USPS, and the actual shipping address. Once DMW submits your order to the shipper, DMW has no control over the timing, customs, and actual delivery of the shipment. DWM cannot be held responsible for delays as a result of postal or airline strikes, inclement weather causing flight delays, or any other reasons for non-service.
If you do not want your delivery left on your doorstep in your absence, then you must request a Signature Receipt. You can request a Signature Receipt in the Order Notes during the checkout process. Without a signature receipt, DMW will not specify a signature is required, and DMW is not responsible for missing or stolen deliveries if left on a porch or doorstep.
SHIPPING TO A NON-RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS
You must notify DMW if you are shipping your order to a non-residential (commercial) building so we can specify that a signature receipt is required. You can request a Signature Receipt in the Order Notes during the checkout process. Without a signature receipt, the shipper MAY drop the item just inside the door, and DMW cannot be held responsible for missing or stolen deliveries.

Additional shipping costs may be required for oversized orders. Actual shipping costs for very large orders will be calculated at the time of shipment, and each large order is handled individually. We will contact you to discuss additional fees if there additional costs when heavy, over-sized, and multiple boxes must be used to ship your entire order.
If you placed a very large order, you can expect to receive multiple boxes, not necessarily all on the same day. Sometimes the boxes get separated during transit. If you don't receive all boxes in the same delivery, give it a couple days for the remaining boxes to catch up. Re: Crystal Cake Orders To protect from shifting and damage during transit, each tier will be packaged and shipped to you in its own box.
