NOTE: Australia Post may experience delays from time to time. Once the package is handed to Australia Post, it is out of our control.

Processing Orders

I pack orders on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. I ship on Tuesdays, Wednesday and Fridays.

Shipping times may vary during peak times including Public & other holiday periods, or busy periods, such as after sales.


I use Australia Post packaging boxes or satchels where possible. If the package is a non-standard size, I use purpose sourced containers or recycled boxes, and environmentally friendly or re-cycled packaging material where I can.  Orders are wrapped in honeycomb paper or bio-degradable bubble-wrap, and I use Eco peanuts as void fill. These will break down in water, and are anti-static.

Every effort is made to pack the items safely, and into the smallest possible package. Please contact me should you experience any breakages (Send me a photo – that can help us improve our packaging methods).

Local Collection (Free)

I am happy to have you collect your order directly from me in Calwell, ACT.  I will advise via text or email when your order is ready for collection. Please contact me to arrange a collection time.

I have limited space to store parcels, and would appreciate collection within 1 week of completion of the order.  Thanks for your understanding.

Postage within Australia

Please ensure you select the appropriately sized Parcel Post option. Express Post can be selected on the checkout page, using the checkbox provided.

Correct postal addressing is your responsibility. Complete your shipping details clearly and correctly.  If goods are sent back due to incorrect addressing, a re-ship charge may apply.

I use Australia Post shipping:

  • Australia Post offer standard rates for parcels under 5 kg.
  • Shipping costs for any parcel over 5kg may vary depending on the size of the parcel AND your postcode.
  • Shipping costs cover packaging, postage and handling.

Should postage vary from what you have paid, I will either refund any extra payments, or contact you to discuss any additional charges.  I have updated the web-site so that it calculates shipping rates as best I can, but some ‘combined’ order calculations may be a little out.

Express Post
  • An additional $5 above Parcel Post for standard Australia Post boxes under 5kg.
  • Cost may vary for larger or heavier packages.
Postal Tracking
  • All packages are tracked, and a tracking number provided.
  • Track your parcel  here. (Link is also available on the Home page, or from within your Account Page).
  • Please check your email (including your junk mail folder) for tracking updates from Australia Post.
  • I also check on the delivery status of our packages regularly.
Transit Insurance
  • Australia Post insurance against damage or loss up to the value of $100 is included in postage costs.
  • Any orders with a value of more than $100 will incur an Insurance fee (payable to Australia Post) of $2.50 for every additional $100 or part thereof.
  • Post COVID, delivery timeframes with Australia Post still can be uncertain. I recommend selecting Express Post for quicker delivery as these parcels DO get priority).

Free Shipping (when advertised):

  • Domestic (Australian) orders only
  • Minimum spend or other conditions may apply (as advertised)
  • Unless otherwise specifed:
    • up to 5kgs only
    • Single parcel per order

International Shipping

Due to demand, I have re-commenced international shipping. The web-site does not provide automatic pricing for international shipping.
I am not in a position to enter into commercial arrangements with international shippers. As such, international shipping can be quite expensive. Please consider carefully. If you are purchasing from overseas:

  • select Direct Bank transfer or Credit Card as your payment method
  • Select International Shipping (By Arrangement)
  • When I receive your quotation request, I develop a quote based on your address and the parcel weight and dimensions (including packaging). This will be added to your cart.
  • You will receive an email saying your quote is ready.  Due to time differences, please be aware that this may take a few days.
  • Your cart will have been updated to include the shipping quotation I have prepared.
  • If the quote is acceptable, finalise the order as normal. If not, do nothing, and the cart will be abandoned.
  • Your order will be processed once payment is received
  • Whilst all care is taken when packing your order, some breakages can occur.
  • I do not ship these products internationally:
    • Glass sheets – Glass is too fragile to ship internationally without purpose-built packaging, which I do not do
    • Grout Due to weight, cost of shipping is prohibitive
    • Thermasheet & Acrylic Sheet – Local alternatives are available in most countries. The product may snap unless special packing is used. My packing is fine domestically, but not intended for international use.

All prices and quotes are in $AUD. Make sure you check your conversion rates before agreeing to proceed.
