Made in Ecuador: How Our Products Arrive at Your Door

We put a lot of time and effort into making sure our shipping times are fast, and our shipping costs are reasonable. This is quite a feat for a small company shipping out of Ecuador to all over the world! As Ecuador is a developing country, this can prove a little more difficult than shipping locally within the United States. Affordable, reliable options here in Ecuador are limited.

Regarding delivery time

We have found that using a two-part system to get your package to you works the best. Packages are weighed and measured, and we can print out USPS postage online right here in Quito, Ecuador. Once the batch is ready, we ship it in a large box to a distribution center in Miami. By the time your order arrives in Miami, about one week has passed. Once in Miami, our associates take the packages to a USPS outlet for final delivery to your doorstep. This is why you may have seen “2-day shipping” and “USPS” on your package. You may not even have realized that it was actually processed in Ecuador, where your order was handcrafted before starting it’s long journey to you.

Regarding shipping costs

When we figure out the shipping costs that you need to pay we need to take into account not only the shipping cost from USPS but also the cost to get your order to the USA with a courier such as DHL or UPS. We have used Ecuador Post in the past and found the shipping times to be 3 times as long, the costs more than double, and the tracking method not as reliable. Obviously, we ruled this out as an option.

Please enjoy this little video to see how it all comes together!

  6. Bonjour,
    Super votre site internet, j'aime beaucoup les articles que vous proposez. J'attends avec impatience la livraison de ma première commande. Pour la France les frais de port sont assez importants mais je ne doute pas que les couvertures de Bible feront un superbe cadeau.
    Merci beaucoup.

  8. It's been 18 days since I placed my order and I just now got a shipping confirmation. Why does it take so long to get an order of bookmarks in the mail?

  14. received an email from USPS to day but did not open it as it appeared to be scam. It said my product cannot be delivered. I assume that is not true from here in Canada! Order#24840739
