SHIPPING / RETURNS / FAQs
WHERE DOES VIOLET GREY SHIP?
VIOLET GREY ships to addresses in the fifty United States, excluding P.O. boxes. We do not yet ship internationally. However, you are welcome to use a freight-forwarding company but you do so at your own risk. We do not support international returns and you are responsible for all duties and custom fees. All orders shipped to a freight-forwarding company are final sale.
HOW DO I TRACK MY ORDER?
When your order ships, you will receive an email with your tracking number including a link to track your package online.
HOW QUICKLY WILL MY ORDER ARRIVE?
VIOLET GREY currently offers standard Economy and Express shipping options. The shipping time frame begins after your order is processed and leaves our warehouse. We strive to process and ship your order within 24 hours of order receipt, and within 48–72 hours during promotions or other high order volume periods. Orders received before 1:00 PM (Pacific Time) Monday-Friday will normally be processed the same day. Orders received over the weekend and on major holidays will be processed the following business day. We currently do not deliver orders on weekends or holidays.
Please check the shipment tracking link in your shipping confirmation email for the latest shipping status. For additional help, contact Client Services at email@example.com for order status information. Please include your order number in your correspondence.

WHAT IS A HAZMAT PRODUCT AND WHY CAN I ONLY SHIP IT GROUND?
A hazmat product is one that contains a flammable liquid considered a hazardous material by the U.S. Department of Transportation (e.g., pressurized spray cans, fragrance, nail polish) and can only be shipped via Ground shipping due to air transport regulations. Restricted items may not be shipped to Alaska or Hawaii.
WHAT IS THE RETURN POLICY?
Our top priority is ensuring our customers are confident in their purchases. If you are not happy with your purchase for any reason, subject to our regular refund policy, we accept returns of unused or gently used items within 28 days of order delivery unless otherwise noted on the product detail page. We offer no refunds on any items designated as Final Sale. Items must be returned with their original product packaging. The original shipping charge, if any, is not refundable.
If you are unable to complete your return request or are receiving an error message, it may be because the item you are attempting to return is hazmat and must be shipped with special conditions. Hazmat items may include: perfumes, aerosols, items containing a lithium ion battery (most rechargeable items), most nail polishes, and nail polish removers. If the item is, indeed, hazmat, it will likely feature a small symbol of a flame in a diamond shape on the outer packaging, near other symbols. To return a hazmat item, please reach out to our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org with your order number and the item you would like to return, and they will be more than happy to assist you.
