The shipping guidelines under the Shipping Method and Packaging sections apply only to orders shipped directly from my studio. If you are ordering an item fulfilled by Printful, please see the Printful Shipping section further down on this page.

Shipping Method

All orders shipped from my studio are sent out via USPS. During checkout you will have a choice between First-Class or Priority Mail.

First-Class is an economic option, good for most orders. This option includes tracking but is not insured. Delivery time varies based on destination.

Priority usually arrives within three business days of being shipped. The USPS website has a map to estimate Priority shipping times to your area. All non-Printful items ship from my studio in Western Washington (zip code 98260).

Packages shipped via Priority include shipping and are insured. All miniature and jewelry orders over $70 are shipped via Priority. 

While non-custom orders frequently ship the next business day, please allow at least two business days for shipping, especially during the holidays.

US Shipping Costs

Order Price Type of Shipping Shipping Rate
Up to $20.99 USPS First-Class $5.50
USPS Priority $8.74
$21.00 to $49.99 USPS First-Class $3.50
$21.00 to $69.99 USPS Priority $6.00
$50.00 to $69.99 USPS First-Class Free
$70.00 and Up USPS Priority Free

International orders are always welcome. The choice between First-Class Mail and Priority also applies to international orders (with longer shipping times, of course). You are responsible for paying any tariffs, taxes, or fees imposed by your country.

Priority is strongly recommended if you live in an area with unreliable delivery service. First-Class Mail orders are not insured and ship at the buyer's own risk. Only orders shipped via Priority can be replaced if lost or damaged during shipping.



All items are packaged in cushioned boxes (or natural burlap bags, in the case of full-size malas) protected within a shipping box. Invoices and any other written material are printed on 100% recycled paper. All packing material is recyclable, compostable, and/or reusable.

Gift wrapping is available and can be selected at checkout. You can include a personal message, and the invoice will not include prices. Gift wrapped orders are wrapped in recycled, recycable wrapping paper printed with soy-based ink in Washington State.   

Printful Shipping

Printiful orders include most art prints, printed clothing, and printed personal accessories (printed bags, phone cases, etc.). If an item is fulfilled by Printiful, it will say so in the product description.


Dream Raven Designs is located in Washington State and collects sales taxes for orders (item price only, excluding shipping) shipped within the state. The exact percentage varies based on your county.

Sales tax is also charged for Printiful products shipped to either California (item price only before shipping) or North Carolina (item price+shipping*). Sales tax is not collected for any other items shipped to California or North Carolina, even if they are ordered along with Printiful products.

Most European Printiful orders are shipped out of Latvia and are exempt from customs duties when shipped within the European Union. All other Dream Raven Designs orders are subject to the customs and duties charged by your country.

*If your order is shipping to North Carolina, you will receive an invoice that includes the full tax amount for the item and shipping, but this site is set up to only charge taxes for the item price (the tax on shipping is covered in the product cost).
