WHAT ABOUT SHIPPING?

  • I ship all items (except ones listed with the patience needed icon ) via first class mail with United States Postal Service from California.
  • Once shipped, first class mail generally takes 3-5 business days for domestic orders. 
  • Please allow for longer delivery to addresses outside America, you can expect 1-3 weeks for international orders.
  • All patience needed items generally take 4-6 weeks, see this blog post for a detailed explanation. 
  • We are not responsible for delayed shipping to international locations.
  • Sometimes tracking has not been updated, even when a package is sitting at the post office.
  • You can be sure your order has been dropped off because I personally hand deliver all my packages to USPS myself. Please be patient as the post office doesn't always scan all items the second they receive them.
  • COVID UPDATE: Currently, as you are aware, packages are taking a little bit more time to reach their destinations as COVID-19 has affected USPS workers across the United States. I ask that we give the post office some grace as they are constantly working their buns off to get your package to you.
  • Christmas Mail:  All first class mail within the contiguous United States must be ordered by December 10th to arrive before the 25th of December. View our Holiday shipping guide post here
  • Please also note some packages do not get scanned in even when they are dropped off. If this is your case, please wait 5-7 days and if you have not received your item, you can contact me via email: ratboneskinny@gmail.com. 

WHAT ABOUT RETURNS TO RATBONE SKINNY OR THE ODDBALL CLUB?

  • All sales are final with few exceptions, see below. 
  • Most items cannot be returned including The Oddball Club subscription boxes, items on sale, print-per-order greeting cards, custom products (such as special orders from 3rd parties or personalized items), and beauty products due to the nature of these goods.
  • Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted.

  • Please get in touch if you have questions or concerns about your specific item or any return questions via ratboneskinny@gmail.com

WHAT DOES THIS ICON MEAN ON A RATBONE SKINNY PAGE?

  • Glad you asked! This icon means your item takes a bit more time for us to process and ship.
  • As noted in the picture, it usually takes 1-2 days for processing and an additional 4-6 weeks for shipping.
  • These items will ship separately from a partner and won't impact any enamel pin or greeting card arrival times.
