We ship to all U.S. territories, APO/AFO addresses, and many international countries. Please visit the International section for more information.

Military APO/AFO Addresses:  Orders shipped to APO/AFO addresses are shipped via USPS. Shipments to APO/AFO addresses may be subject to longer transit times due to military processing. Once the package has been delivered to the APO/AFO point, Black Water Siren Studio is not responsible for the possible delays or lost shipments.

U.S. Territories:  Orders shipped to U.S. territories are shipped via USPS. Please allow additional time for delivery.

International Shipping

International Customers: Please include a phone number. This helps the package move faster through Customs. Per U.S. and international Customs regulations, we must declare the actual value of purchases made (we cannot mark them as “gifts”). If any extra duty is assessed at your border, you, the Buyer, will be responsible for any and all customs charges. This is completely out of our control.

International Priority Shipping: The US Postal Service has increased its rates dramatically for international shipping. We have had to raise the Priority International shipping rate to $45.00 to cover the most expensive postage to a country overseas, although if the postage to your country is less than that we will refund you the difference in price.

We can ship to most countries. Items shipped to international addresses must pass through customs; please allow extra time for deliveries to international addresses. The approximate time frame is 7 – 21 business days. Business days are Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

Duties and taxes are determined by the customs agency within the destination country. Although charges are not always incurred, assessment of duties and taxes will be based on the value of the order and the tax-free threshold, if it exists, for goods imported into the destination country. Payment of any duties and taxes is the responsibility of the recipient, and these fees are collected at the time of delivery. More information can be obtained by contacting your local customs office.
