What are my shipping costs?
If shipping on your order exceeds the minimum shipping rate, costs are based on the weight of the items in your order. For example, if you order $150 in Transfers (lightweight) you will pay less in shipping than for an order of $150 in paste (heavier weight).
Larger orders make sense and save you money! Weight-based shipping naturally gets cheaper per ounce the more you order, so you’ll save on larger orders. Order your Transfers, pastes, inks, and surfaces together for your lowest per-ounce shipping costs.
What is the typical delivery time?
Orders typically leave fulfillment within 3 to 5 business days of submission. During a product launch, fulfillment will typically be 7 to 10 business days. Depending on the time of year and your distance from our fulfillment center, shipping may take an additional 7 business days after leaving Chalk Central to addresses in the US and 10 business days to addresses in Canada.
Note: Expedited shipping during new product launches does not include warehouse fulfillment time; please expect to wait an additional 7 to 10 business days.
What are the shipping methods?
Depending on your package size and weight, the fulfillment center selects either USPS, UPS, or FedEx, whichever is most advantageous for that shipment for US orders, and FedEx Ground for Canada orders.
Chalk Couture™ offers three shipping options for the US when placing an order in your Designer Office or on your Chalk Site: (1) ground, (2) express (2 to 3 business days), or (3) overnight.
Starting August 1, 2023, orders from Canada will be shipped with a Canadian aggregator.
Express and overnight options are subject to availability based on your location. Express shipping options are only available in the US.
When I choose an express shipping option, will it ship the same day?
Usually, express shipping orders placed by 10 am MT will be guaranteed to ship by the next business day. Express shipping during product launches does not include warehouse fulfillment time (add 7 to 10 business days).
Can I choose which carrier my package will be shipped with?
Unfortunately, no. The carrier is determined by the fulfillment center when your order is shipped.
Am I allowed to charge my customer shipping in order to recoup my shipping costs?
Yes, and we recommend that you do so! Whether you are at a workshop, an expo, etc., use the adjustments or shipping line on your Customer Order Form/Invoice to add these charges to their total and recoup your cost for shipping.
How is shipping charged to customers when they buy on my Chalk Site?
Customers shopping on your Chalk Site will have the ease, convenience, and huge savings of FLAT-RATE shipping, no matter how much or how little is in their order. Easy to calculate, easy to communicate!
Club Couture™ subscribers save even more. Let your Club members know that when they’re logged in, they’ll get a reduced flat-rate shipping for their first order of any month.
US Chalk Site orders—$8.99 USD flat rate
US Chalk Site orders for Club Couture customers—$5.99 USD flat rate on the first order each month
CAN Chalk Site orders—$13.99 CAD flat rate
CAN Chalk Site orders for Club Couture customers—$11.99 CAD flat rate on the first order each month
What is the shipping cost for Designers?
Shipping for a Designer Office order is a weight-based calculation. Because every order weight is different, the shipping costs will vary.
Minimum shipping charge on US Designer orders is $8.99 USD.
Minimum shipping charge on CA Designer orders is $16.00 CAD.
Will tracking information be sent to me?
Yes. When an order is shipped, the recipient receives an email with tracking information. This is true for both Designer orders placed in Designer Office and retail orders placed by customers on your Chalk Site.
Your order may ship in multiple shipments with different tracking numbers. You’ll receive an email for each shipment.
What if my order is late or damaged?
We understand that occasionally packages are lost, damaged, or delayed in transit. When this occurs after a product has left the Chalk Couture™ warehouse in good condition and damage is the fault of the carrier (not a product defect), contact the carrier to file a claim. If you need additional help, please file your claim with the carrier and then contact Designer Services with that claim number.
What do I do if a product is defective?
If a customer identifies a defect in a product, ask them to work with you directly and you can work with Chalk Central on an appropriate solution. If you have the same item on hand, we encourage you to replace the defective product for your customer and then complete the Defective Product Form (located in the Fix-It-Fast FAQ). If you do not have that particular item in your inventory, then complete the form on your customer’s behalf and we will send a replacement product to either you or your customer. No shipping is charged on replacements for defective product(s).
Can I exchange product(s)?
No, product exchanges are not available, only qualified returns.
What is the customer return policy?
Chalk Couture offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee to all customers. Customers should contact you, their Designer, with questions or concerns about their product, including shipping and returns eligibility. Returns are only accepted if product is still in its original packaging, unused, in salable condition, and within 30 days from the date the original order was placed. Shipping charges will not be refunded. C.O.D. returns will not be accepted. Customers also have a 3-day right to cancel (information on this policy is printed on the Customer Order Form/Invoice in your Designer Office), during which they may return/cancel any order for a full refund.
How does a customer or Designer return a product?
To return products that a customer ordered on your Chalk Site, ask them to contact Chalk Couture at firstname.lastname@example.org. Product must be returned in a suitable shipping container, in salable condition, and in the original packaging with a copy of the original packing slip.
Return the merchandise, shipping prepaid by customer, to one of the following addresses:
389 W. 12800 S. Ste. 510
Draper, UT 84020

What is the Designer return policy?
As a Designer, you are under the same return guidelines for any product you purchase at the Designer price, including the 30-day limit. The 30-day window begins when you order the product, not when you resell it to a customer. Returns are subject to a 10% restocking fee based on the retail price of the item, not price paid. Refunds on returned product are made after the product is received and processed by our returns team, and will be calculated based on the value minus the restocking fee, commissions, bonuses, or other incentive offers based on the original order. Please see the Chalk Couture™ Policies (specifically Policy 6.7 - Refund Policy) for additional details.
