International Shipping

Haiku Designs can ship products almost anywhere in the world. We ship UPS Air Express, U.S. Post Office Express or Fed Ex Great Rates, whichever is available and more economical. We charge exact shipping charges and do not add any extra handling or packing fees. International shipping charges are often significantly more expensive than domestic charges.

For international or Canada shipping prices, place an order for the products you want over our secure server. We will calculate the most economical shipping charges and notify you by e-mail. If you approve, we will then process your order and ship. All custom fees, import duties, taxes if any, will be extra and will be the responsibility of the buyer. International shipping times range from 5-10 business days for UPS up to 2 weeks and more for U.S. Postal Service.
