Shipping and Delivery

Does TLCB ship to my country?

At TLCB, we proudly offer worldwide shipping to ensure our products reach customers around the globe. 

Please note that all international shipping rates are determined by the carriers we partner with, and these costs are beyond our control. Nevertheless, as part of our ongoing commitment to customer satisfaction, we are actively exploring opportunities to minimize shipping expenses for both our domestic and international customers. 

Additionally, we want to inform our international customers that they are responsible for covering any duty, tax, and customs collection fees that may be incurred upon delivery. Please note that these charges are not included in the order and shipping total.

We truly value your understanding as we diligently work to find cost-effective solutions for shipping, and we are grateful for your support of our small business.

Do I need to cover any customs charges?

Yes, all international orders are subject to duty, tax, and customs collection fees determined by the importing country. These charges are the responsibility of the customer and are not included in the order and shipping total. Customs policies vary by country and are based on the product value, so we recommend checking with your local customs office for more detailed information.

When will my order ship?

The timeline for processing and shipping your order depends on several factors, including:

  1. Pre-Order Details: Every pre-order includes an approximate shipping timeframe. For more details regarding your order, you can check the estimated shipping timeframe provided in the product listing or visit our Shipping Updates page on our website.
  2. Shipping Method: The timeline of your delivery can be influenced by your choice of shipping method. Different shipping options come with varying delivery speeds and associated processing times. We recommend reviewing the available shipping methods during the checkout process to select the one that aligns best with your preferences.
  3. Order Volume: During periods of high demand, there might be a slight extension in processing times as we strive to fulfill orders efficiently while maintaining our commitment to quality.
  4. Weather Conditions: Unexpected weather conditions can sometimes affect the processing and delivery of orders. Even though we try our best to avoid any issues, it's worth knowing that, since we're in Canada and it's mostly winter here, certain weather events might slow things down a bit.
  5. Holidays and Weekends: Order processing and shipping may be influenced by holidays and weekends as our operations are closed during these times. Additionally, shipping carriers may operate with reduced hours on these days. We appreciate your understanding during these periods, and rest assured, we are dedicated to ensuring a smooth and efficient process as soon as regular operations resume.

Generally, once we've received all supplies from our printers, order processing takes approximately 5-10 business days. A confirmation email with tracking details will be sent to you once your package has been shipped.

When will my order arrive?

The delivery time depends on your location and the shipping method you selected. For Canada, standard shipping usually takes 3-7 business days, while international shipping can vary and may take up to 21 days.

Where can I find shipping updates?

You can find all of our shipping updates here.

Can I combine my box and shop orders for shipment together?

Unfortunately, special edition boxes cannot be combined with other shop orders. Your shop orders will always be shipped separately from your special edition boxes. To ensure a smooth process, please purchase the boxes and shop products separately; combining them may result in order cancellation.

What happens if my package is returned to sender?

If your order is returned to us, it may be due to an invalid shipping address or your package has not been collected from your designated locker or carrier office. Unfortunately, refunds cannot be provided for orders falling under these circumstances; however, we do offer the option of reshipment upon receipt of the returned package, subject to an additional fee. 

To avoid such issues, we kindly ask you to double-check and confirm the accuracy of your shipping address before dispatch, as modifications are not possible once shipped. If you need to update your address post-shipment, please contact the carrier directly; however, be aware that they may charge a fee for this service.

Your understanding and cooperation in ensuring a seamless delivery process are deeply appreciated. Thank you for your attention to these details, and should you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Missing Box or Items

What should I do if my package is lost or stolen?

If your package is marked as delivered but you can't locate it, kindly double check your mailbox or front porch. Consider reaching out to your nearby neighbors, as there's a possibility it might have been mistakenly left in one of these locations.

In the event that you do not receive your package, please reach out to us as soon as possible. Make sure to include your order number and tracking information, and we'll be more than happy to help you out!

Please note that we require a payment to cover the re-shipping fee; however, the cost of the products will be covered by us.

What should I do if there is a missing item in my box?

We are so sorry for the inconvenience! If something's missing from your box, please contact us within 7 days of receiving it, and we'll get that missing item sent your way.

Returns and Refunds

Can I return or exchange my order?

Can I get a refund for my order?

As outlined in our Return and Refund policy, we generally do not offer refunds, and all sales are considered final.

If you believe your case falls into one of these exceptions, please contact us and we will assess your situation on a case-by-case basis.

What criteria must be met for replacing my book?

To qualify for a replacement of your book, it must meet certain criteria related to damage upon delivery. Here are the qualifying conditions:

  1. Torn or Missing Pages: If your special edition book arrives with torn or missing pages, you may qualify for a replacement.
  2. Significant Cover Damage: If the cover of your special edition book arrives with significant cover damage, including scratches, marks, or residue, making it unsuitable for display or reading.
  3. Dented or Crushed Corners: Significant dents or crushing of the book's corners that hinder its aesthetic or structural integrity qualify as damaged. Note that minor dents will not be accepted; the damage must be significant.
  4. Off-Center Edges with Design Cut-Off: If the edges of the printed design are off-center to the extent that part of the intended design is cut off, it qualifies as damaged.

It's important to contact our customer service within 3 days of receiving your order if you believe your special edition book meets any of these criteria. They will guide you through the process of obtaining a replacement or refund.
