Carriage and Shipping

International retail/stockist shipping fees are calculated using Fed Ex software which compares location, size and weight. International distributors/wholesalers will have shipping charges applied after their order is packed due to higher volume orders, we will email an updated invoice with shipping fees when the items are ready for despatch, until this stage in the process shipping charges will show as zero on the invoice.

For credit accounts we aim to despatch all orders within 5 days however we may have exceptions at busier periods, proforma orders will be shipped after cleared payment has been received.

Shipping timescales will vary depending on location, we currently use Fed Ex who list their approximate timescales on their website, alternatively please contact us with your location and we can check for you. If you would prefer to instruct alternative couriers please contact us after placing your order and we can cancel out any shipping charges.

Any order which cannot be shipped in full and requires part shipment (follow up) dispatches to be made due to our stock levels will not incur further shipping costs and will be covered within the agreed shipping price on your invoice.

Upon despatch, tracking numbers are emailed automatically on all shipments once logged on FedEx, however, please contact us should you not receive a tracking reference and we can check for you.

Customs and Importation Charges

Our shipping prices cover collection and transit of the items, any additional importation charges and tax will be the responsibility of the importing company, please check customs and excise charges for your location before placing an order if you are unsure.

Distributors must sell to retailers and not directly to customers only, we may request a full list of stockists supplied to at outset or during any future reviews.

We will not support any Stockists or Distributors offering pre-orders or announcing product releases straight from the Create & Craft launch before they are officially released on the trade website. The exception to this is the Tattered Lace magazine which is released usually within a week of the official launch on Create and Craft and we understand pre-order subscriptions are often used between stockists and their customers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before you get started here are a couple of frequently asked questions:

  • Any new Tattered Lace product ranges we release usually hold a 28 day exclusivity period with Create & Craft/Ideal World so these items may not appear on the website until that period ends.
  • Any Hobbycraft exclusive dies are not available to other stockists.
  • Any items you may have seen elsewhere but are not available online will be either exclusive, discontinued or awaiting release, please contact us if you have any queries regarding these items.
