Shipping to Canada
Stained Glass Express is pleased to offer duty-free shopping and shipping to residents in all Canadian Provinces and Territories!
The Free Trade Agreement between the United States and Canada allows us to offer duty-free status to certain items that we carry in our online store.
What qualifies as duty-free?
Items that are made in the USA qualify for duty-free status to Canada. Items in our online store marked with a red Duty-Free flag, including most of the art glass and many of our most popular products fall into this category. While we will do our very best to make sure that the products we ship “duty free” do qualify, we cannot guarantee that Canadian Customs will agree. (If you receive something that you expected to be duty free and it was not, please let us know so that we can research what happened and clarify things with customs or remove our duty free icon from the product.) Note: Generally, items of Canadian origin qualify as duty-free.
What does not qualify as duty-free?
Items that are not made in USA do not qualify for duty-free status. Any items in our online store that do not have a Duty-Free sticker are not of US origin, and will be subject to a tariff which will be calculated into your postage.
What can I purchase?
Canadian customers are able to purchase anything from our online store. Any items with a Canadian flag on it can be shipped duty free. (This does not exclude Canadian taxes or shipping fees. You will still be responsible for those.) Note that prices shown are USD.
How will my items be shipped?
Your items will be shipped to your Canadian address via United States Postal Service (USPS), the most reliable and affordable option we have found. If you are a Canadian resident but wish to have your package sent to a US address for pickup, we will choose between USPS and UPS for the most affordable option.
We will aim to contain all of the items in your shipment in one box. It is fine for both duty-free and non-duty free items to be shipped in the same box.
How much will my shipping cost?
Your shipping cost will be calculated and vary according to the weight of the items that you purchase. Based on an average customer order (ex. 5 sq. feet of glass, two lbs. of solder, one bottle of flux, several rolls of copper tape), we can estimate that a 15 lb. package with dimensions of 16x16x12 will cost approximately $60 to ship. Your total cost of shipping will also include any taxes or tariffs due.
We aim to provide a simple and streamlined process for shipping to our Canadian customers. If situations arise in your shopping OR shipping experience that you feel would be helpful for us to know, or have overlooked information that would be useful on this page, please let us know!
