How long does it take to process my order?

We aim to ship out most orders within 3-4 business days from the date of purchase. However, on rare occasions, we do fall behind when we receiving larger volumes of order than what our small team can handle. In such cases, it may take up to 7 business days before orders can be packaged for shipment. Rest assured, all orders are fulfilled in chronological order of receipt. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

Please note that some items such as special orders or customization orders may require additional time for fulfillment.

I made an error with my shipping address. What can I do?

Please contact us as soon as possible if you notice an error with the shipping address in the order confirmation email. We can only amend shipping address prior to an order going out. Once your package is handed over to Canada Post, we have limited ability to redirect the package. The customer will be responsible for any necessary re-shipping fees should there be an error with the shipping address submitted for the error.

Do you ship out bottled inks during Winter?

To avoid breakages and damage, we will only ship out orders containing ink products on Mondays between the months of December to March. Some brands of inks may also be excluded from shipping entirely during this time due to the fragile nature of their bottles. However, all items will still be available for in-store pick-up for local customers.

Returns & Exchanges

I've changed my mind about a purchase. Can I make a return? What about an exchange?

All purchases are final sale and we do not offer refunds on purchases. If you have an issue with your order or would like to make an exchange, please contact us to discuss details. The customer may be responsible for all shipping costs relating to any exchange requests.

Please note that we cannot offer exchange on pens once they have been inked.
