International orders and shipping

Elegant Insights Braille Creations has shipped products all over the world, and we want to ship your beautiful braille jewelry and accessories as quickly and as inexpensively as possible. We can ship your items one of three ways: Postal ground mail with no tracking, international mail with tracking from one postal outlet to another, or via international courier services, such as FedEx, that will track your package door-to-door. Each of these options is costly, as most choices with tracking start at about $30.00 USD. If you want guaranteed delivery service, it is quite possible you may expect to pay over $100.00 for 2 or 3 day delivery from a courier such as Federal Express. this does not take into consideration expenses such as insurance or VAT taxes. We cannot be held responsible for orders that are lost, damaged, or mishandled in transit. Choosing any option other than guaranteed door-to-door delivery means that it can be difficult to estimate how long your package may take to arrive, because the US Postal Service will only track your package to the border, and after that, they make no promises. Placing an international order means you are responsible for all costs associated with shipping, including any customs fees or penalties. If you have any questions about international orders, please choose the link to the contact form on the Elegant Insights home page, and select the option “To place an international order.”

Examples of countries and corresponding pricing:

To keep things as simple as possible, we have taken an average cost for the countries to which we ship. USPS International Priority Mail to the UK, Germany, and other European countries is $33.00 USD. The delivery time is 6-10 business days, with no guaranteed delivery date. On the other hand, Federal Express International delivery to the UK is around $125.00 with a guaranteed 2-3 day delivery.

If you are not particular about how, or when, your package is delivered internationally, you may wish to opt for the least expensive choice, which is USPS International Ground Mail. The price of this option is determined by the individual package weight and destination address. To choose this shipping method, contact us directly via the contact form on the home page, and select “to place an international order.” We will determine the mailing costs and send you an invoice for the total amount due when your package is ready to ship. If you would like to calculate the cost of shipping ground mail to your address, go to the United States Postal Service web site, and use the international shipping calculator:
