I use USPS dates and guidelines. Please visit online to calculate specific dates or deadlines for your region. Packages will ship from 55371. (More detail and links below)

Choose Priority shipping for insured delivery - FAST! (7)Selecting priority mail will provide insurance and is the fastest way to get your order with detailed tracking updates!

Below are the recommended shipping deadlines – PLEASE ADD 5 days for any made to order items.

About the Artist ~

  • Remember – I am the only artist here.
  • You are making a high-quality purchase from a working studio artist based in Northern Minnesota.
  • I do travel to various events and will occasionally be out of the studio. Updates will be noted on this page or in “Recent Posts” in the sidebar of this site. This is also a good time to find me and shop locally, in person!
  • Priority mail will not “move you up in line” at my torchmade to order pieces are made in the order they are received no matter what shipping option is chosen.
  • **NOTE that priority mail in an OPTION offered to provide insurance for your order. It also offers slightly shortened delivery period but I am not responsible for estimated times given by USPS.
