Shipping & Policies

Please carefully read through Happy Cactus Designs' shipping and policies outlined below prior to placing your order. By placing an order with us, you are agreeing to these terms.

At this time, we offer shipping to destinations within the United States and Canada. Orders typically ship within 2 - 3 business days of order placement and you will receive an email notification with a tracking number once your order has shipped. No signature is required for delivery. Tracking updates normally take 24 hours for domestic orders, and up to 48 hours for international orders. Orders ship from Durango, Colorado, a small town in Southwest Colorado.

DOMESTIC SHIPPING: USPS Priority Mail typically takes 2-4 business days. USPS First-Class Package Service typically takes 4-6 business days and may take up to 14+ business days. The USPS recently combined services and First Class packages are now called "Ground Advantage." UPS Ground residential delivery typically takes 2 - 7 business days, but may take longer depending on distance to the destination.

Thanks for your patience and please remember that once a package leaves our hands, we do not have control over delivery times.

All orders over $100.00 ship for free. No code is needed at checkout.

Domestic shipping rates are as follows:
$0.01 - $99.99 = $5.95 (USPS First Class) or $9.95 (USPS Priority)
$100.00+ = Free

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: At this time, we offer shipping to Canada, Australia, and Japan.

Canada: Orders under $25 are $17.00, orders $25+ are $24.00

Australia: $38.00

Japan: $31.00

Orders are shipped via First Class International Mail. No tracking number is provided. Once the package leaves the USA, it is no longer trackable. Orders typically arrive within 10 - 30 days of placement, but transit time may take as long as 6 weeks. First Class International may vary in transit time and reliability depending on your own country's postal system. 

Please contact hello{at} before or immediately after making your purchase if you would like to upgrade your order to USPS Priority Mail International with tracking for an additional fee. 

Some packages may incur custom fees/duties which are the responsibility of the customer. Happy Cactus Designs is not responsible for any customs fees or duties incurred on international shipments as these are the responsibility of the purchaser. Please note, packages will be marked as merchandise with the value of your packaged noted. 

Regarding Shipping Addresses, Damaged Packages, or Lost Packages

Happy Cactus Designs is not responsible for packages shipped to the wrong address if the buyer supplied it. Items are shipped to the shipping address provided upon checkout. In the event that a package is returned because a customer provided an incorrect address at checkout, that customer is responsible for repaying shipping costs to ship the package out a second time. Refunds are not provided on orders of mis-shipped items due to customer errors.  

A tracking number (for USPS and UPS within the United States) is provided via email notification once your package has shipped. You can use this number to track your package. In the unlikely event that your package does not arrive and appears to be lost, it is your responsibility to contact your local Post Office or UPS Customer Service. Happy Cactus Designs is not responsible for lost packages after they have been shipped. Items lost in the mail will not be reshipped or refunded. If your package appears to be damaged upon arrival, I recommend refusing the delivery or filing a formal damaged package claim with the delivery service.


All sales are final. Due to the nature of the merchandise, Happy Cactus Designs is unable to accept returns with the exception of defective merchandise. Items are inspected and packages are prepared and shipped with utmost care, but should any merchandise arrive defective, please contact hello{at} with images and a detailed description of the issue within 2 days of receiving your order. However, as mentioned above, damages incurred during transit as a result of mishandling by the shipping service are excluded here, as a damaged package claim should be filed by you with the shipping service. Additionally, color variation is not an acceptable description for a ‘defective or damaged’ refund. Despite taking great effort to accurately portray the color of items, colors in person may differ slightly from photos due to your own computer monitor settings.

Embroidered art pieces, items of clothing, and objects are all one-of-a-kind, so replacement is not an option; only credit back to the original form of payment will be given. Defective items must be shipped to and received by Happy Cactus Designs no more than 10 days after the original delivery date in order to be eligible for a refund. Refunds are given once the item is received and reviewed by Happy Cactus Designs. All merchandise should be in its original condition with the original packaging.
