Who qualifies for your free shipping offer?
Retail orders with a shipping address in the United States qualify for free shipping.
Please make sure to enter the discount code FREESHIPPING when you check out. Once an order has been placed, we are unable to refund the shipping charge.
Wholesale orders and international orders do not qualify for free shipping.
When will my order ship?
Most orders ship within 5 business days.
There are some products that are printed and sewn as they are ordered (headbands, totes, pouches, shower curtains for example). Those items typically ship within 7 business days. Please allow us a little extra time during busy seasons or while we are having a promotion.
To find out about the production timeframe for a specific product, please check the "production time" link in the product description.
Can I change my shipping address, modify my order, or combine my orders?
Unfortunately, we are unable to modify your order once it has been placed. When an order hits our system, it is routed to our production team or to different fulfillment centers, for that reason we are unable to make any changes to the items or to the delivery address.
Do you offer in store pick up?
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer in store pick up at this time.
How can I track my order?
Once your order is packed, we will send you an email confirmation with your invoice and tracking number. That information can also be found in your account section at octopusink.com
Do you make custom orders?
Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to customize your order or draw a design specifically for you, but thank you for checking.
My tracking shows that my package was delivered, but I didn’t receive it.
Sometimes USPS will mark packages as delivered before they actually arrive. Your package will most likely be delivered within a few days, but it’s great to check with your neighbors, apartment office, and/or post office for more information in the meantime! If you do not receive your order in a couple days, please contact us.
My package arrived, but not everything was in it.
Not to worry! We are fulfilling orders from a few different locations and missing items are likely coming in a separate package. You can find more information about your order in your account details.
If you feel that the item was forgotten during our packing process, please contact us and we will look into it for you!
My package arrived, but the wrong item was in it.
Well, shoot! Sorry for the mix up! We do our best to make sure you get what you ordered, but mistakes happen sometimes. Please visit our return portal to initiate an exchange.
My package arrived, but the product was damaged.
Please contact us within 14 days to let us know about any defective items.
Visit our return portal to initiate a replacement order.
Please note- once the item has been washed and/or worn, we are not responsible for any damage to the item.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes, we ship worldwide. If you don't see a shipping option for your location, please contact us.
Will my international order be charged customs and duty fees?
All international orders are subject to customs and duty fees as defined by the country of import based on the product value. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide information on whether you may or may not be charged customs and duty fees.
My international tracking is not updating.
We're so sorry for the delay with your package! Please note that, once your package has been shipped, international orders typically take 10 to 21 full business days to be delivered. Business days do not include weekends, or holidays.
We do our best to ship orders to you as quickly as possible. Depending on your location, your order may take longer than 21 days for delivery due to courier delays beyond Octopus Ink’s control. For the most up-to-date information regarding potential delays in your location, please reach out directly to your local Customs Bureau and Postal Institutions.
In the meantime here are some things that might help you locate your package:
If tracking indicates that your package is in your destination country, please use your local courier's online tracking, as it may have more accurate tracking information. Alternatively, we recommend directly contacting your local post/customs office. The best way to do this is by simply locating your nearest post/customs office and visiting them in person. We recommend you physically visit the office to locate your package as your courier's online tracking may not recognize your USPS generated tracking number.
If tracking indicates that your package is still in the US, or is currently in transit, please be patient! Typically international orders do get delivered within 21 business days, however your package may be delayed by customs, or may simply be missing a scan.
Whatever the case may be, we recommend full communication with your customs office as this is the most likely place for packages to go missing.
If you have waited the full 21 business days and still have not received your order, please contact us.
Exchanges and Returns
What is your return/exchange policy.
Merchandise must be in original condition. We will not accept items that have been worn, washed, used, or altered in any way.
WITHIN 30 DAYS- Merchandise can be exchanged within 30 days from the date of delivery for a similarly priced item or exchanged for store credit in the form of a gift card.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL- on discontinued items that were purchased at a sale price and on all gift cards.
The cost of return shipping is at the customer’s expense and is non-refundable. We recommend returning items through traceable mail, as any returned items that are not received by Octopus Ink will not be issued an exchange.
DAMAGED OR WRONG ITEMS SHIPPED
Please let us know within 7 days of delivery if you have received a damaged item or an incorrect item. Once the item has been washed, worn or altered, we do not accept the item back as a damage. Please inspect your item upon delivery.
WHERE TO MAKE AN EXCHANGE
ONLINE- Please contact us at email@example.com to initiate your exchange.
410 G STREET, ANCHORAGE, AK- Our physical store is on a different system than our website and does not have access to your online order. Please bring a copy of your order, if you would like to exchange an item in the store.
*Please note, our physical store does not stock all of the options that are available online. If there is a specific item that you are hoping to see in person, contact us and we can check its availability.
ALL OTHER LOCATIONS- We do not accept any returns or exchanges from third party vendors who sell our products. Please return those items to the location where they were purchased.
Payments and Gift Cards
What type of payments do you accept?
We accept all major credit cards.
Do you sell gift cards?
Our gift cards are tied to the location where they were purchased.
If you have a physical card from our Anchorage store and would prefer to redeem it remotely, please contact us. We are happy to process your order manually.
If your gift card number was issued electronically, it must be redeemed through the website.
Let us know if you need any assistance.
I've tried to use my gift card, but it doesn't seem to be working.
Contact us with the gift card number and the name of the purchaser so we can assist you. It’s possible that we just need to process your code manually. Let us look into it for you!
It looks like my card was charged twice for my order.
If your credit card was declined when you first tried to place your order, you’ll see a pending transaction in your account. Don’t fret! We do not capture funds for declined transactions, and this charge will automatically drop off your statement within a few business days.
