Our standard processing time is approximately 10 to 12 business days (approximately 2 weeks). Business days are Monday – Friday and do not include weekends or any holidays. Processing time is the time is takes us to produce and package your order and does not include the time it takes the for the Postal Service to delivery your items. Orders are made, by hand, in the order in which they were received and to be fair to everyone, we do not allow customers to jump the queue. If you require a faster production time, please purchase our Expedite My Order service with the rest of your items. This will moves the production of your items to the next business day. This is the only way to expedite the processing of your order. Please note that we aim to get your orders out quicker than the standard processing time and our ability to do so fluctuates due to order volume and season so please refer to the banner at the top of each page of the site for the most current and up-to-date information regarding processing times.
Please also understand that if while personalizing an item you include items that we either do not carry or are not included in the price of that item, we will need to place your order on hold while we attempt to contact you to clarify or while we invoice/wait for payment on any price difference. This causes unnecessary and inconvenient delays and worst case scenario, should we not be able to get in touch with you, your order may be cancelled. The best way to avoid this, is to be sure to read all the item information, as well as the accordion menus as we describe exactly what is included for each item, all bead sizes, materials used, etc... Should you have questions, we’re happy to help, just send us an email at email@example.com
or fill out the contact form on the site.
Once your order is made and packaged, it is shipped via the method you selected at checkout. Free USPS Standard Domestic Shipping is available on all orders over $50 USD. Should you qualify for free shipping, you may still upgrade to another method at an additional cost. In addition to USPS First Class Package Service, several upgraded methods are available. Selecting one of these upgraded options will expedite your shipping time, not the production time. Orders are shipped to the address you provide at checkout so please be sure that the shipping information is correct before submitting your order. If there is an issue with the shipping address, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can attempt to make the appropriate changes. If your package has already been mailed to the incorrect address you may do the following:
- Re-order with the correct address (please note, you will be unable to return or exchange the original order should you receive it, or should it be returned to us. All orders are final sale).
- Wait to see if the package is returned to Harpers Handmade Co, and then you may pay for the additional shipping to have it resent to you at the correct address.
Once your item has been handed over to the USPS for shipping, we lose visibility to its whereabouts and rely on the same tracking information available to you. If your order is late, missing or marked as delivered when it has not yet been, please do the following:
- Review the detailed tracking information for your order. Many times, packages are not scanned in in real time and it is in fact in transit, even when it doesn’t appear to be at first glass.
- Contact your local post office or mail carrier for more information.
- Check with your neighbors or around your house and any side doors in case it was delivered to a side entrance or to a neighbor next door or even across the street.
Harpers Handmade Co., LLC is not responsible for missing, stolen or damaged packages. Should you have any of the above issues with your package, please file a claim with the USPS directly. If you’ve upgraded your shipping to USPS Priority or above, you will have a certain amount of insurance on your package. Please Click HERE for more information about filing a claim with the USPS.

Every item in your order is placed on ONE (1) instruction card, and packaged in a clear cello bag with a business card, packing slip and Thank you card/Loyalty Rewards Card. If you are purchasing separate items for separate recipients, please let us know the detailed packaging instructions in the 'Notes to Seller' section at checkout. If we do not receive any instructions, we will package them in our standard manner, all together. Small gift boxes with the ability to contain 4 bracelets are available for purchase at checkout for an additional $4 USD per box. A personalized gift message is included with your gift box purchase.

While producing your orders, we replicated the exact information you included/selected while personalizing your orders. This means all spelling, and spaces (using your base bead selection) are duplicated.

If you’d like, you may email customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you’ve re-ordered an item you previously made a mistake on and we will do our best to expedite the production of your correct item so that you don’t have to wait the standard processing time a second time. Please include your new order number, previous order number, full name and contact information should we have any questions. Please understand that this is a courtesy and we cannot guarantee our ability to do this as order volume at any given time may make it impossible.
Sizing & Resizing
Please be sure to select the correct wrist size at checkout. The most accurate way to determine your correct wrist size is to use a tape measure and measure around your wrist diameter. We find that counting beads on another similar style bracelet is not an accurate method as many of our beads and gemstones are natural and from the earth and may vary slightly from bead to bead. We are unable to offer sizing smaller then 5 inches. If you require a size larger then 8”, please contact us before placing your order as an additional charge may apply. Please use your discretion when purchasing these items for children. Buyer assumes all risks and responsibilities. If you received your item and feel you selected the wrong size, you may qualify for a resize. Please visit our Resize page HERE for more information and to see if you qualify.
As a small, handmade, business we are unable to offer free samples or provide free product for review. If you are interested in working with us, please contact us for more information about other ways you can work with Harpers Handmade Co. (We’d love to have you!)
Many of our products are available for wholesale purchase! They make the perfect addition to any retail store or as team gifts for network marketing or corporate gifts. Please contact us with your ideas and we’ll be happy to bring them to life!
