Little Paper Planes is not responsible for any International orders once it has been shipped. Please be aware of your countries postal service and keep in mind packages at customs takes anywhere from a week to 3 months to go through, so we cannot give any sort of real guarantee. However with that said we have had very few problems with shipping out of the US and most international customers receive their orders within 2 weeks after it has been shipped out. Please be aware your country may charge tax and duties, Little Paper Planes is not responsible for the taxes that your country charges you. We are not responsible for damages that may occur during shipment.

In early 2013, the Post Office raised prices for international shipping. We wanted to keep them as low as possible, but unfortunately the new rates are very high.

$90-and up-----------------$45.00

International Customers: Be aware you may be charged a tax on all goods shipped. We have no control nor is it our responsibility over any taxes you may be charged when picking your package up from customs. We run a business so we try to be legit in all our business practices which includes marking "merchandise" and listing all items inside the package that is sent to you. For more information, please contact your local Post Office.


If there is a need for an exchange or return for any reason, we MUST be notified within 5 days of you receiving the package otherwise we will not be able to process the request. We do NOT accept returns sent to us without a prior email. This is due to the nature of how we pay our artists and printing our pieces. Also please email us with any questions in regards to prints. Most prints are extremely delicate and cannot handle back and forth shipping, so refunds and exchanges are handled on a case by case situation. Once we agree to the return, it is the customers responsibility to package it so it will not get damaged. If we receive a damaged return, we can NOT refund the customer. A lot of items on the site are one of a kinds, so anything of that nature is non-refundable. We do not accept returns for art print editions or sale items.

Shipping costs are non-refundable.

It is also not our responsibility if you do not pick up your order from the Post Office and it gets returned to us. We do not refund those orders.


By completing your purchase you agree to the terms above.

Most of all the packaging supplies used for shipping for Little Paper Planes orders are made of at least 80% recycled materials.
