Processing time is typically 1-5 business days for most orders. Please keep in mind that since everything is handmade order processing time is also dependent on order size. Very large and/or complicated orders can take longer and may have a 2-4 week processing time. For large orders a good gauge for processing time is adding up the lower end of the processing time for each splint. For example if you order two thumb combination splints with a 3-5 days processing time and 5 swan neck splints with a 1-3 day processing time you would count 6 days for the thumb splints and 5 days for the swan neck splints, giving you a total of 11 days. It is also important to keep in mind that titanium has extended processing time regardless of order size as it requires additional steps in production. Now, obviously that can add up pretty quick and most orders won't actually take that long, but an order wouldn't be considered late until outside that timeframe. Orders for titanium will also have an extended processing time due to the additional steps required to smooth and polish the metal.

Orders placed during sale events often have a longer processing time due to order volume.

I do my best to provide updates on any delays and current processing times in the "News and Updates" section as they occur.

Shipping times below do not include processing time.


Domestic orders are shipped Monday, Wednesday, and Friday via USPS. Transit time is generally 3-5 business days for First Class and Priority and 1-3 business days for Priority Express. Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to update through USPS.

Priority and Priority Express options include $50-$100 insurance respectively, however currently USPS is unable to guarantee delivery times, therefore I do not issue refunds for shipments that have been delayed in transit.

Insurance is included for all domestic orders and is based on the total cost of the order. Due to a recent substantial increase in lost orders that have been marked delivered, effective 2/23/2024 all orders over $200 also require a signature for delivery.

Any search requests or claims must be filed with USPS within 60 days. After 60 days USPS will not be able to process a claim on the insurance and any items lost or damaged in transit will not be able to be replaced. In some special circumstances store credit may be issued, this credit cannot be used towards the purchase of items on sale.

International orders are transported by a USPS shipping partner Global Post. Transit time is generally 1-2 weeks for First Class, but some locations and more outlying areas can take up to 6. International orders typically will have arrived by the 4th week, even to remote locations. Please keep in mind that these timeframes can be a bit longer and are also affected by how long customs in the destination country takes to process the shipment. All standard international and and Priority shipments have $100 insurance added automatically while Priority Express has $200 insurance automatically included. Orders $400 and up require a Priority option to be used.

Please note that some countries charge a customs fee/import tax. This charge is not a shipping charge, it is a tax imposed by the government of the destination country. As these charges vary for every country and often fluctuate I am not aware of how much they will be, it is the buyers responsibility to be aware of any applicable fees for their individual country.

Please ensure your address is correct before placing your order. To protect both buyer and seller, and to prevent fraud, addresses cannot be changed after an order is placed. Any shipments returned to me for missing or incomplete address or in the case of international shipments where they were never picked up from customs will not be eligible for a refund, but I will of course be happy

to send them back out to you for the cost of the reshipment.


If you receive your order and there is something wrong, please let me know within a week of delivery. Please keep in mind that as all splints are  handmade so there may be slight variations from pictured (no two swirls come out exactly the same, no two hammered finishes are exactly alike). 




Because all items are custom made to order, I cannot accept returns or exchanges.
If you receive your splints and they do not fit they may be sent back for resizing.  Buyer must contact for approval prior to shipping a splint back for resizing. All approved resizes must be mailed back to the address provided within 30 days. Fees for resizing vary depending on the splint type, metal type, and if additional supplies are required. Buyer is responsible for shipping.

Different companies use different sizing methods and in some cases even have their own proprietary sizes, so please use the tools and instructions available on my sizing page to ensure accuracy and prevent the need for resizing. Orders placed using sizing for another company will not be eligible for the free/low cost resizing policy due to the increased likelihood of inaccurate sizing. 

Orders are immediately sent for processing when they are placed, therefore orders cannot be changed or canceled once they are placed, so please double check measurements to ensure they are accurate and ask any questions prior to placing an order. While larger orders take a bit longer, small orders that are just one or two simple splints often go out next day, sometimes even same day if the order is placed early enough, so there is generally not enough after an order is placed to cancel before work on it has begun. You will receive an email from Zebra Splints when the order has been shipped. Please allow 24-48 hours for USPS to update tracking.

Should you receive your order and have an issue with it, please contact me immediately. Above all, I want every one of my customers to be happy. If there is something wrong with your order, I will be happy to fix it, ESPECIALLY if it is my mistake!
