Thank you for stopping by CraftyTrain.com, open online 24/7. First time customer? Here's the short version of who we are and what you need to know before placing an order:

  • All items are ready to ship from Texas.
  • We accept debit/credit cards, and offer Sezzle payments.
  • We do not accept returns/exchanges. This means every item you purchase is NEW. It has never been in anyone else's home, craft area, or smelly gym bag (you never know).
  • We run our business a certain way to keep our prices low. The number one question we receive is "why is there a $5.95 handling fee?" This is because we do not include processing/labor/order fulfillment costs into our product prices. Instead, we charge a $5.95 handling fee on every order. Spend $20 or $200, the handling fee will not change. 
  • Orders $30+ ship free. Orders under $30 ship for $6.95 flat rate. 
  • Orders $200+ are shipped with Delivery Signature. Orders under $200 have the option to add/purchase Delivery Signature at checkout. 
  • We know you're excited to receive your order, which is why we ship all orders in the order they were received, as quickly as possible. The current processing time will always be posted in the upper left hand corner of your screen. Full details of our policies are listed below. We sure do appreciate you supporting American owned and operated business. "It's A Great Day To Buy Craft Supplies!"

Can I add on to my order?

Yes, but only if your original order has not shipped.

We only need to know your name, address, and order number.  For example, "Please hold order #12345 for Jane Doe mailing address 6789 Main Street Anytown, USA." We will reply to your e-mail during business hours only to let you know if your original order can be added onto. Please note, this is a courtesy that creates extra work for us at no additional fee to you. Please follow the instructions listed above.


"Where is my order?" "When can I expect my order?" "I am having delivery issues." "I entered an old or incorrect mailing address."

  • The processing time (amount of time it should take us to package up your order for shipment) is listed on your receipt. Processing time does not include Transit Time (the amount of time your package will take in transit to be delivered). Once your order has shipped, your tracking number will be e-mailed (or text if you select SMS text notifications) to you.
  • Once your order has been shipped, it should arrive in 3-7 business days for addresses within the Continental US, and 13-30 business days for Military Packages.
  • If you are having an issue with the shipping company, such as a tracking number showing a delay or your package being marked as "Delivered" but you cannot locate it, you must contact the shipping company directly. USPS and UPS both have the ability to check the GPS coordinates of where your package was delivered. Once a package has been marked "Delivered", it is out of our hands. We will not refund or resend orders marked as "Delivered".
  • We automatically include Delivery Signature Required on all orders $200+. We also offer the option for you to add Delivery Signature Required to your order at time of checkout on orders less than $200. Delivery Signature Required means that the shipping company will hand deliver your package and obtain your signature. You must be available to sign for your package on the day of delivery, or you will need to make other arrangements, such as having your package held at the post office or UPS center for you to pick up, or reschedule delivery.
  • If you have entered an old or incorrect mailing address, we can only assist if your package has not shipped. If you have not received shipping confirmation from us, send an e-mail to orders@craftytrain.com with the subject "CHANGE MAILING ADDRESS". Shipping notification e-mails are sometimes delayed, and does not indicate your order has not already shipped. If your order has already shipped, it will be your responsibility to contact the shipping company. We are not responsible for delivery issues if you provide us with an old or incorrect address. If your item is returned to us, you can either pay $6.95 to have your order re-shipped, or you can request a refund minus original shipping and handling & 20% restocking fee.
