Frequently Asked Questions



• Wrap each blade/shear individually. We've found wrapping them in newspaper, paper towels or plastic shopping bags is a sturdy and light-weight alternative to purchasing bubble wrap.

• If there is empty space in the box, stuff it with paper, plastic shopping bags, etc.

• Don’t ship your blades/scissors in a simple letter envelope. They will break through the envelope and get lost in the Post Office system for a week or two. (Trust us on this one.)

• Stop by the Post Office to pick up a FREE mailing box. Add postage and insurance if desired. Bubble-mailers are another great shipper. These envelopes are sturdier and have bubble wrap inside for additional protection. Whichever one you chose, be sure to seal off the weak spots with tape!

Include a note in your package that includes following info:
