All Sinvention brand items are handmade in our studios here in Stratford, Ontario Canada. We are a busy, highly specialized studio that custom crafts all of our Sinvention brand leather products. We aim to ship wholesale orders out within 2-4 weeks from the date of order for orders that include basic standard items such as cuffs, collars, connectors etc. The premium labour intensive items do take longer to handcraft and are clearly marked in the product description, lead times on these items are upto 6 weeks. If you would like us to split your shipment up and send the premium peices seperately rather than waiting for your complete order please make a note upon check out.
Sinvention ships very discretely in a plain box, always. The parcel will be non-descript and it will be sent from WLC or Ware Leather Corporation. We do our best to offer economical shipping options and only charge actual shipping dues with no handling fees. We use Canada Post, UPS and DHL for Shipping and you may read a general overview of the shipping methods here:
We will use Canada Post Expedited Parcel or Xpresspost. These parcels are fully insured up to $1000 CAD and include a tracking number. The tracking number will be sent to the email address attached to your Church of Sinvention account directly from Canada Post upon parcel dispatch. Sinvention and/or Canada Post/alternate couriers have no control over delays due to Customs and clearing.
For orders within Canada that are above $1000 CAD value we will ship via UPS Ground
For International and USA orders you can also choose DHL Couriers. We have very competitive shipping rates thru DHL and they are generally a 2 business day service in the USA and 2-4 business day service internationally. With DHL there is a brokerage fee due on delivery that is based on the declared value of the contents. It is billed at a rate of $10 flat fee or 2.5% of value of goods, which ever is greater.
Please note shipping dues will be billed at the time of parcel dispatch, we wait until the box is packed and weighed so that we can acurately bill your shipping rate.
We export to the USA and Internationally regularly. To ensure the end users' privacy we always use the most generic export delcarations possible. For instance on our Sinvention Leather products we ship under the Harmonized Tax code for "Custom Leather Accessory - Other" and that is how leather items will be itemized and declared. Other products are declared are on an individual basis. If you have specific concerns regarding the customs declarartions and it's wording please contact us directly using the contact form.
Any shipment delays due to Importing Customs of the destination country are not the responsibility of Sinvention or Canada Post/ alternate couriers, these are beyond our control. Please note that delays are more frequent during high volume seasons such as Christmas. If your order is time sensitive please note that a Customs delay is possible and you should allow a few extra days travel time to avoid any disappointment.
All importing taxes, fees, and duties are the responsibility of the addressee of the item (importer of record)
Any other customs issues will be the responsibility of the addressee of the item (importer of record). If you have questions regarding importing into your country - please direct them to your local Customs office. Each country is different.
Tracking numbers are emailed directly to you from the shipper (Canada Post, UPS, or DHL) to the email address associated with your Sinvention account.
