Payment, Shipping and Returns


Merchandise at the Philosophy Talk Shop is printed or embroidered just for you after you place your order. Due to continued sheltering-in-place, our fulfillment house is experiencing longer than normal fulfillment and shipping times, which is consistent with the rest of the industry. They're doing the best that they can to print and ship your item(s) to you, while taking additional safety measures.

Here are the fulfillment times you can expect:

The Philosophy Talk Shop accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. In addition to the cost of the merchandise, the purchaser is responsible for shipping costs as well as any applicable sales taxes, including any duty and import taxes for items shipped outside of the United States.



It's very important to us that you get what you ordered as quickly as possible. Because your order is created especially for you, it can take 2-5 business days to fulfill before it's shipped (though the majority are sent within 3 days of ordering). Shipping times should be added on top of that.
