On Thursday, December 13, 2012 several major South American news sources picked up a story about the rising popularity of pet memorials in the USA.

One of the two services specifically mentioned in the article was Psyche Cremation Jewelry.

Since the article was released, this website has seen some incredible traffic spikes from Argentina, Brazil, Columbia and a few other South American countries.

In addition to the web traffic, I’ve been receiving lots of questions about whether I accept international orders.

It’s always my priority and pleasure to help anyone who wants to memorialize their pet or loved one. However, since I’ve found myself repeating a lot of the same information in emails, I thought it would help both my visitors and myself to clarify a few details about international orders in one post.

 

International Shipping

International orders are always welcome. However, because of the recent 500%+ increase in USPS shipping rates I can no longer offer free shipping to addresses outside the USA.

I now offer two options for international orders:

1. You may send me ashes in your own small container or ziplock bag. After you place your order, you will receive a confirmation email with the address you can send your container of ashes to. This option will only cost an additional $10 for shipping of your completed piece(s), your ashes, and any photos you include.

2. For an additional $10 ($20 total), I will send you the ash collection kit. Airmail post to international addresses can take 1-3 weeks depending on the location and speed of your local customs so this option will take a little longer.

 

International Payment

I use Paypal to process payments and Paypal can easily accept your international major credit card and take care of currency conversion. It’s just as easy to place an order internationally as it is in the USA.

 

How To Get Started

To commission your own cremation memorial, just select the piece(s) you want and select your shipping option (either $10 or $20 additional). Then checkout as usual using any credit card. It’s that easy.

 

Thank you so much for your interest. I look forward to creating many beautiful glass memorials for my South American friends in the new year.
