SHIPPING CHARGES

Custom Feathers realizes that shipping charges are high. We want you to be happy with our shipping charges, because a happy customer is one that returns to buy again. Calculating shipping charges is not an exact science, but we try to get it as close as we possibly can, we don't want you to pay any more than you have to. So here is our iron clad guarantee: We will refund ANY and ALL shipping overcharges that are reported. We realize that errors in shipping charges happen, some beyond our control. There are legitimate reasons for postage overages to happen. When a customer orders several unlike items as add to cart items, the accumulated orders will be charged for each individual shipping carton. In this case, you could be charged more that you should be, just let us know. If you feel that our shipping charges are in excess, for fastest service, immediately after placing an order, please text: David: please review my shipping charges for the order that I placed with Custom Feathers (please supply you name). His cell phone number is 660-247-2738. You may also email him at feathers@greenhills.net. Please do so before 2 PM so that you order can be processed the same day. We will review and text you the results. You may accept the review and verify the order and we will refund any overages or you may refuse the review and cancel your entire order, no questions asked. If you do not respond to the review by 2 PM, the order will be held till the next day.

FIRST CLASS SHIPPING

There are a few items that we will be able to ship by first class. First class shipping will be limited to one product only but can be multiple quantities of one product if it will remain within the weight limits. The first class option will be listed in our product catalog just below the add to cart button as a buy now button.
 


****BALLOON FEES****

Ballon fees rarely happen at Custom Feathers unless you have an unusually large order, but..... when they do, this is what they are:
Balloon fees are fees assessed by shippers when the size of the container exceeds 1 cubic foot in zones 5 and above, and can not be determined until the items are packaged and the container is measured. These are fees that are beyond our control and this is our attempt to insure that you will pay no more in shipping fees than is required. Please place your order. We will temporarily pack your container and determine what the balloon fees are and send you a paypal payment request. You can either send the balloon payment or decline the extra charges by texting for fastest service to David at 660-247-2738 or by responding to feathers@greenhills.net. You have our guaranteed assurance that the transaction will be cancelled and all your funds will be returned to you immediately if you do not wish to complete the transaction. We are very sorry for this inconvenience.

PRODUCT PROCESSING TECHNIQUES
When you purchase CUSTOM FEATHERS products, you may see a white powder on the products or in the packaging. This is normal and it is used in processing wild turkey parts. As parts are removed from the wild turkey carcus (wings, tails, beards, feet etc.) as much flesh and fat is physically removed as possible. Immediately after fleshing, boarax, a white powder is applied to the fleshed area. This serves as a very effecient drying agent and also protects from pests invading the fleshed area. Borax is a harmeless powder found in most laundry sections of your local grocery store. It is one of the main ingredients found in laundry powder. You may shake, brush with a fine bristled brush or lightly vacuum to remove this powder.
