The only time we charge tax is to customers who are located in California. If you are in any other state you will not be charged tax. If you are in California and hold a resale license or are tax exempt please contact us and we will set up an account so when your order on-line our cart will waive the tax. All we need from you is a copy of your resale license or tax-exempt cert. That can be emailed, faxed or mailed in. Here is a link to our Contact Page.
We have a shipping page that shows a UPS map with transit times. Here is a link to that page: SHIPPING If you select a USPS Priority Mail service then it takes 1-3 days to anywhere in the USA.
We have a very comprehensive shipping page. It should cover just about any question you have about SHIPPING.

If you receive an e-mail copy of your order right after placing it then your order went through. If you do not receive one within minutes then chances are that it did not go through properly or your confirmation got caught in your SPAM filter.

We send shipment confirmations with tracking numbers each afternoon/evening. However, many of our customers have SPAM filters and sometimes those e-mail messages get filtered. If you placed an order and got an order confirmation but did not receive a tracking number be sure to check your SPAM filter and if it is not there contact us via e-mail and we will help you locate your box. [email protected]
Further note- if you did not get an order confirmation it is possible that the order was never placed or checkout was not completed. Be sure to visit the site to make sure your cart is empty.
The tracking number can be typed into the Track Your Package window on the main page of the UPS.comweb site. You can then see the progress that your box is making as it travels from us to you. It can also give you an expected delivery date so you can make sure you are home to receive it.

This is a really hard question to answer easily. Sometimes you want a very light dusting of glitter to give an effect and sometimes you want it heavily covered with no background showing through.
From our test of Regular Chunky Flake (0.040) glitter, 1oz will completely cover 1 square foot.
Painting the background of what you are covering first really helps. For example, if you are covering a floor with silver glitter you can paint your set a light gray. That way if your glitter does not cover every square inch it will not be noticed. See GlitterUniversity.com for more information. Craft Coverage and Poly Coverage.
We do accept some purchase orders from schools, universities and government agencies. We must have a copy of the actual PO in hand before we will ship the order. We will not accept a PO under $50.00 (product total). Please contact us using the Get Help tab at the bottom of the screen.
We do not care if your billing and shipping address do not match. However, if you are a Paypal user you may find that Paypal does care (it depends on how you have your PP account set up).
