Your parcel will be sent by either courier or Tracked New Zealand Post. International shipping charges will be calculated and advised by email before we ship.  We will not ship any product internationally without first obtaining emailed approval from you (except for edible image orders)

We have a fixed courier charge of $8 for non rural and $12 for rural addresses, regardless of how big your order is.  We have a fixed price for international orders for edible images only of $8, for a NZ Post/Overseas Postal service.  This has no tracking and has an expected delivery time of between 5 and 21 business days (as quoted on the NZ Post website)

We aim to send your parcel out within 3 business days of receiving payment.  If you have not received your parcel within 5 business days please email us and we will track your parcel with the courier or New Zealand Post (please allow an additional 2 business days for a rural delivery)

Edible images will be printed and shipped within 2 business days of receipt of order.  An email will be sent, letting you know your image is available for pick up (if applicable) For shipping, please read above for timeframes.

If, upon receipt, any of your items are damaged, please contact us straight away. All our products are checked to ensure they are perfect prior to packaging, therefore we would need to lodge a claim with the freight company. Please retain all packaging so we can see how it was damaged in transit.

If you have received an incorrect product to that ordered, please contact us immediately and we will exchange it at our cost.

If you have ordered the wrong product, we are happy to exchange items that are returned to us at your cost, in perfect condition and within 7 days of receipt. However this does not include edible images or other food products purchased. The original shipping costs will be deducted from your refund. We recommend that you either courier your return to us as we cannot be responsible for items that are not delivered to us or are damaged during return transit
