The Organic Bloom prides itself on using the highest quality materials, exceptional customer support and of course, our packaging. All frame orders are packed with precise thought and care to ensure they are protected during shipping and delivered without issue. We never want to compromise our high standards - we look forward to continuing to provide you & your clients with excellent customer support and beautifully framed portraits.
At the beginning of this year, Fed Ex, UPS and USPS announced rate increases of around 3-5% for most standard shipping services. Larger boxes, heavier shipments and residential delivery rates also increased. Our rate increases are only occurring due to the increases set by the shipping carrier industry.
Since 2015 all orders shipped within the US have had a $10 or $15 flat rate shipping fee based on order total. Starting today, June 18, 2018, all orders shipping within the Contiguous US will have a $15 shipping fee (for orders under $100) and a $20 shipping fee (for orders over $100).
Shipping to Hawaii and Alaska will have a $25 shipping fee (for orders under $100) and $45 shipping fee (for orders over $100). Most frames larger than 24x36 (Single) or 20x30 (Twin/Double) have to ship via Fed Ex due to box size, as USPS will not accept boxes over 108" combined length and girth. We will be adding a 3rd tier of shipping costs with Fed Ex for large frames later this month.
Because of the size of our frames and the size & weight of our larger shipping boxes, the dimensional price increase has affected The Organic Bloom directly. We have been working with Fed Ex to reduce any costs where possible, which has allowed us to increase our shipping costs by only $5/tier. This price increase is minimal, and something we must do in order to continue to provide you with the quality and support you've had from us over the past several years.
Our monthly Repeat Bloomie discount & Reward Point program were implemented around the same time we previously increased prices (whether shipping or product), so now seems like the perfect time to start planning new discounts and incentives that will help to offset these shipping costs for all Bloomies. We hope to share these details soon!
