SHIPPING & RETURNS
We try to ship out orders as soon as we can. Currently, Thimblepress ships with USPS or UPS for domestic and international orders. Our shipping window for customer order processing is 1-3 business days. That is the time it takes for us to prepare a customer order, not the time it takes to ship and get to the customer. If you have a specific deadline for your order, we advise you to contact Thimblepress at firstname.lastname@example.org before placing the order to inquire and request a specific ship date. There is always the option to choose a faster shipping time at checkout. These shipping times vary from customer order fulfillment and shipping times.
Please note: orders often ship in multiple packages, and sometimes on different days because of our different manufacturing partners.
Shipping to a PO Box? Items that cannot fold up (blankets, apparel, towels) and have final sizes below 24" x 30" are approved to be shipped to a United States PO Box. Unfortunately, larger sizes require a physical address. We are unable to ship to Canadian P.O. Boxes.
For wholesale order shipping and terms please visit our wholesale page.
We offer free shipping on domestic orders of $75 or more. Thimblepress shipping rates are based on the location we are shipping to in combination with order weight and the level of shipping you choose. An email confirmation will be sent to you after your product has shipped. Rates are determined by UPS or USPS (we have no control over rates). You can visit USPS.com or UPS.com for more details.
In addition, the items you purchase are hand-packed (with love!) by someone on our Thimblepress team. One or more people are involved in the multi-step process of packaging, boxing, weighing, checking, double-checking, and shipping your Thimblepress goods to you! Several materials are involved including boxes, tape, bubble bag mailers, stay flats, cello sleeves, cardboard backing, packaging materials, shipping labels, etc! Please know that we try to use the least expensive shipping method to keep costs to a minimum. And throughout the year, we offer FREE Shipping coupon codes (USA only) to let you know how much we appreciate you!
Yes! We ship all international orders via USPS First Class International or USPS Sure Post. Unfortunately, tracking is not available often for international orders, and we cannot guarantee a delivery date due to the post office in your area and customs clearing. Please note, all orders are marked as merchandise and we are not responsible for any customs fees or duties incurred on international shipments. The fees are not in our control. If your package is returned to Thimblepress with unpaid customs fees, the buyer will be given the option to repay shipping and resend the package or select to receive a refund minus the shipping fees. These fees or duties are the responsibility of the purchaser. Please check with your local customs office about rules and regulations that may apply to your order. Unfortunately, Insurance is not available for lost, unclaimed or undeliverable packages, so we cannot make a refund for them.
We ship all of our orders to the address that was entered in by each customer upon checkout. If the address is incorrect or undeliverable the product will be returned to Thimblepress. Upon us receiving the package back to our studio we will reach out via email about this happening. The customer will have the option to pay for it to be shipped again and redelivered with the correct address. The customer can also receive a refund for the product minus the original shipping costs.

Letterpress items are handled case by case and may vary due to the nature of letterpress being a handmade process. Ink impression and color on the pieces may differ slightly from the picture you see in the store due to computer monitors and photography. We will accept returns if there is a smudge or if the piece has been damaged in some way.
To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.

We are thrilled to offer our customers products that are made to order through a curated selection of quality, USA-based production partners. We love creating products this way because there is no waste in unused products; we can offer you more options more often, and we can often customize orders for you via this method.
With our made to order products, we don't keep a warehouse to store these products. Each made to order product is shipped directly from our carefully selected production partners. That means there are manufacturers all across the United States printing and making your Thimblepress orders. Often, that means your order may ship from different places and in multiple boxes, and may not have our cute Thimblepress stickers adorning them. We really wish they did! Doing it this way ensures you get the best products that are shipped safely to you!
Currently, we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, PayPal, Apple Pay, Amazon Pay, Sezzle Installment Payments, Klarna Installment Payments, Shop Pay Installment Financing, and Thimblepress gift cards. We cannot divide your order on multiple credit cards at this time, and please note your credit card or debit card will be charged as soon as you place your order.

We sell our orignal confetti mix in 3 oz. & 7 oz. We also sell our colossal confetti, which comes in a large sized bag!
Kristen Ley, owner and designer, uses a 1925 10 x 15 Chandler + Price Letterpress that she hauled from from Lexington, KY. Every item she prints is hand-fed one-by-one into the Letterpress. She also has a Heidleberg Windmill Letterpress.
We intentionally designed the gender reveal Push-Pops this way! The gold confetti in the lid has both pink and blue mixed into it. But inside, the push pop is stuffed with either pink or blue confetti depending on which gender you ordered. Please note, we ship all Gender Reveal Push-Pops in clear bags that have a “BOY” or “GIRL” sticker clearly marked on the outside to indicate if blue or pink confetti is in the push-pop. So whomever is opening the package will know immediately if it’s a girl or boy push-pop.
Currently, we do not offer Washington D.C. as part of our state flower collection. But keep checking back as we may add it in the future!
Yes! Our owner and founder, Kristen Ley, creates all of our artwork and she would love to discuss creating a custom illustration or piece for you. Please contact us for more information on pricing.

Yes, however, we only take a limited number of custom letterpress orders each year, so please contact as soon as possible by filling out the custom design form here.
Letterpress is such a beautiful technique, but it has several time consuming steps from start to finish including 1. creating custom designs 2. Ordering custom plates of design is made. (The plate usually costs over $50 and takes a week to produce). 3. Mixing the ink color(s) 4. Checking the press and all pre-press steps 5. Printing the image 6. Cleaning up the plate, press, and work area 7. Trimming any necessary paper, packaging product, and shipping. With all that time it takes to set-up and clean-up, we print a minimum of 100 designs at a time. Please keep in mind that the only letterpress work that we print is artwork that we have created in-house. We do not do commercial printing.
