By purchasing from Mint & Birch, you agree to terms and conditions. This page will show any other pertinent information regarding your order and any details regarding your piece will be communicated beforehand, and/or on the site. It is the customer's responsibility to read product listings and policies prior to purchasing. If you have any questions, please contact me.
I generally get orders out within about 10 or so business days depending on order date and volume. However, due to the nature of handmade and the many processes that it involves, turnaround time for orders is anywhere from 5-25 business days from order date to the date that it is being shipped! Each piece goes through several handmade processes before it can be ready to ship! Mint & Birch is owned and run by a mama of 5! Every single piece is cut by me (Jessica!) out of sheets of precious metals, filed, polished, drilled myself! I don't buy blanks. Instead, every single piece is cut by myself in my studio out of sheets of precious metals! I personally polish each piece at each every single step of the wait - it's a personalized process and your necklace is made with so much love and care by me! I promise they are worth the wait! It is a truly personalized experience and I am so honoured to be making these special pieces with my hands! It may not be instant gratification, but when you feel a Mint & Birch piece in your hands, it will all have been worth the wait!
When your order is ready to ship, you will be emailed with tracking information.
This may increase during our busier seasons, such as Christmas and Mother's Day or if I run events. See here
for Christmas & Mother's Day deadlines and turnaround information around holidays.
Please note that I do not have control over the postal system or how long it takes for them to physically deliver your package. Within the turnaround time, I handcraft your necklace to order. I ship from Langley and Surrey, BC. If you have a special date you need your order for, please ensure that you give yourself enough time to account for transit time by the postal office. Please contact me if you have any questions.

TRACK YOUR PACKAGE
I will email you as soon as your order is ready to ship! Canadian packages ship through Canada Post. Please give me some time to physically get your package to the postal office. When I print a label, you will be emailed with the confirmation. However, I need time to physically get your packages to the post office. Once it is scanned in, your tracking number will register in Canada Post's system.
Tracked packages ship with insurance. If anything happens during delivery, I will open an insurance claim with Canada Post and we will communicate together to resolve the matter. Please note that I do not have control over how the postal service processes claims but I will do my best to work with you and Canada Post to find a solution.
If you have selected an UNTRACKED method at checkout, your package cannot be tracked, meaning there is no way to locate, track down or find your package. There is no insurance on any untracked packages.
