Policies ShippingSHIPPING:
I ship worldwide! So wherever you live, you can get your very own Pretzl goodies :)

All boxes are shipped with tracking (starting from august 22, 2018). Items that fit in an envelope are shipped without tracking. Simply because tracking is not possible on enveloppes.

I ship most of my items via PostNL postal service in the Netherlands.

Within the Netherlands, a package will be delivered one or two days after shipping.
Shipping time within Europe mostly takes 1 or 2 weeks.
Overseas shipping mostly takes between 2 and 5 weeks.

If you order something, please allow 2 weeks for the production of your items. I have a tight schedule and I can't always start right away with your items. I want to spend time and care for each item I make. I hope you can understand!

If you need it quicker, be sure to add the 'rush order upgrade' to your cart. Then I will rush the order and finish it in 1 week instead of 2. You can find this listing here:
