Shipping Info:

Shipping Time: Packages usually arrive to our customers within 5-12 days depending on where you are located. If you need your package sooner, options are available. We can either apply a Rush Handling Fee or ship via UPS Next day, 2nd day or 3rd day. Call 206-525-0670 to change your shipping option or to apply the Rush Handling Fee.

Priority orders (requested to ship Next, 2nd or 3rd day) placed after 2:00pm PST will be shipped the following business day.

General Shipping Info

We ship UPS. UPS cannot deliver to P.O. boxes. If shipping to a U.S. Post Office is necessary, these packages are sent each Thursday and are subject to an additional handling charge. Please allow one extra week for these shipments.

Most orders arrive quickly. However, since we do not have control of shipping once the package has left our premises, please allow 2 weeks before tracking an order. If you include your email address with the order, we will be able to email you a UPS tracking number.

We accept Visa or Master Card. We do not ship any C.O.D. orders.

All shipping charges are extra and regular shipping charges apply to back orders. Please note that shipping charges added during checkout process are estimated shipping charges only. We charge $4.00 handling then exact UPS costs. Shipping charges will be adjusted as necessary when your package is shipped. UPS charges a $5.00 service fee for packages that are 54" or longer. If you prefer your fabric to be rolled, instead of folded, and it is 54" or wider, please note that shipping costs may be higher than quoted. Please note during checkout if you have a preference. If quantity is more than 10 yards, fabrics may be rolled even if the fold option was checked. Some fabrics may be damaged by folding, if you select the fold option on these fabrics, shipping department will use their discretion. Shipping charges for heavy, bulky or multiple packages may be higher. Please note that if you request us to roll fabric and you have ordered notions, notions will be shipped in a separate box which will add to the estimated shipping charges.

If your order is under $10.00 subtotal, and you would prefer us to ship via Regular US Mail instead of UPS, during check out you will need to select the button that says "waived insurance". This means that we will ship it out via regular US Mail which does not have any insurance or tracking information. If the package is lost or damage, Seattle Fabrics will NOT be held responsible. If you prefer your package to be insured, it will be shipped out via UPS. If you request regular mail during check out, you will still need to authorize UPS shipping charges. The website does not charge credit cards. It merely serves as a secured method of transmitting your billing information. We will correct the shipping charges to reflect the lower cost shipping method. We charge $4.00 handling plus EXACT US postage for regular first class mail.

If your order is over $10.00 and you prefer it to be shipped via US Priority Mail, please request this service in the customer comments. All packages will be insured. Insurance fees for packages worth under $100 is $1.35. This generally makes shipping and handling equivalent to UPS ($5.75-7.50 or more postage plus $1.30 insurance fee plus $4.00 handling). All UPS shipping costs estimated by the website include both insurance fees and handling fees. We prefer shipping via UPS because of their superior tracking service. When packages become bulkier/heavier, UPS Ground is generally less expensive then US Priority Mail because Priority mail is similar to UPS 2nd and 3rd day services, however US Priority mail does not guarantee their shipping time while UPS does (UPS will typically issue credits when asked unless the reason for delay was not man made, i.e. snowstorm, fog, hurricane, etc). Priority mail does not have any tracking information. If you request priority mail during check out, you will still need to authorize UPS shipping charges. The website does not charge credit cards. It merely serves as a secured method of transmitting your billing information. We will correct the shipping charges to reflect the lower cost shipping method. We charge $4.00 handling plus EXACT US postage for priority mail.

Please let us know in the customer comments if your address will only accept UPS or US Mail.

Please note that UPS and USPS have regulations regarding shipping liquids. We cannot ship liquids via US Priority Mail, UPS Next day, 2nd day or 3rd day. The ONLY method we can use for liquids is UPS ground. This means we are unable to supply Alaska, Hawaii or international locations with any liquid product.

Shipping Info for International Orders

Unfortunately our website is limited and does not currently allow Priority Mail International as a shipping option for international orders, however this shipping option is available. In general we ship all orders to International Countries via the U. S. Post Office because the UPS option is TOO expensive.  We charge EXACT Global Express or Priority Mail International charges + $5.00 for handling.

When placing an order you will have to accept the UPS charges but will not be charged that shipping rate.  All orders are processed and entered into our system by hand and are not charged to your account until we ship your order out.

It is very important that the address given is a mailing address.  If you want your package to go UPS please state that in the customer comments section when ordering. 

You can estimate your shipping charges using this international mail postage calculator: http://ircalc.usps.gov (our shopping cart will estimate shipping weight when prompted for shipping options. If you would like this estimate before placing an order, fill out a dummy credit card in the order check out form, i.e. "1234". The next page will give you the estimated weight. You can then press the back button to correct your credit card information.). We will ship the package via Priority Mail International.

If you have any questions or need clarification e-mail us at seattlefabrics@msn.com

Shipping Info for APO Orders

The website is a little goofy when dealing with addresses outside of the United States. Although APO's are classified as a US address, you need to select a different country then the United States during check out. Please just select the first country in the list (Albania), and we will correct the address when we receive your order. When placing an order you will have to accept UPS shipping charges, however we ship all orders to APO's via the United States Priority Mail. Your invoice will reflect the difference in shipping costs.

We charge EXACT Priority Mail charges + $5.00 for handling. You can estimate your shipping charges using this mail postage calculator: http://postcalc.usps.gov (our shopping cart will estimate shipping weight when prompted for shipping options)

If you have any questions or need clarification e-mail us at seattlefabrics@msn.com

Shipping Info for Alaska and Hawaii

Currently the web site does not offer United States Post Office as an option.  In general we ship all orders to Alaska and Hawaii via the U. S.  Post Office because the UPS option is TOO expensive.  We charge EXACT Priority Mail charges + $4.00 for handling. 

When placing an order you will have to accept the UPS charges but will not be charged that shipping rate.  All orders are processed and entered into our system by hand and are not charged to your account until we ship your order out.

It is very important to include a P.O. Box if you have one since the Post Office will often not deliver to a physical address if you have a P.O. Box.  If you want your package to go UPS please state that in the customer comments section when ordering. 

You can estimate your shipping charges using this mail postage calculator: http://postcalc.usps.gov (our shopping cart will estimate shipping weight when prompted for shipping options)

Shipping Info for Catalog and Sample Orders

Samples are shipped out USPS for orders under $20.00 worth of samples. Any sample orders above $20.00 will be shipped via UPS Ground.  If you need samples shipped Next Day, 2nd Day, Third Day UPS or Priority Mail, please verify this by typing your shipping preference in the customer comments. These shipping costs will be applied to the order.  Thank you.

Please note, your sample order may show shipping and handling, however no handling will be charged on any sample order. Only sample orders over $20.00 or orders being shipped via UPS Next Day, 2nd Day, 3rd Day or Priority Mail are charged shipping charges. All other sample orders will be shipped via US Regular Mail and will be charged the sample price only.

Sample/Catalog Orders being mailed to an International address will have air parcel post charges applied.

UPS Shipping Times/Cost Calculator

UPS has a shipping calculator that will estimate when a package will be delivered and how much it will cost. During these busy holidays, please note the UPS Observed Holidays List below. Also note that expedited services (UPS Next Day, 2nd Day and 3rd Day) will be shipped out within one business day. If your expedited order is placed before 2:00 pm PST on a business day, we will try to ship it on that business day. If not, we will ship the following business day. Seattle Fabrics takes 3-5 business days to ship Ground packages (so please add this time allowance to the dates UPS quotes).

Please note that Seattle Fabrics charges a $4.00 handling fee on top of UPS shipping charges. All shipping estimates are estimates only. Shipping may cost the shipping estimated on either the UPS calculator or the Shopping Cart calculator plus or minus $5.
