Taxes are charged for all orders delivered within the state of Texas. Texas is an origin-based collection state. That means that state, county, and municipal taxes are based on our location in Salado, Texas. We are required to collect taxes based on those in Salado from all Texas residents, regardless of whether the customer resides in our district. The state of Texas also requires that we collect taxes on shipping charges. More information on taxes required by the State of Texas can be found here.

Delivery time varies by destination.
Estimated delivery time is 7 to 21 business days, but that timeline is not guaranteed, and is based on average performance to major markets. Delivery to some destinations can take 3 months. Once your package has departed the United States, usually through a sort facility in Chicago or San Francisco, please contact your postal service or customs office for details on your package. If you believe your package is lost, we can file a claim with the U.S. Postal service after 60 days. They will investigate by contacting your postal service to find a matching claim.
Customs & Taxes
When you order from PenGems, we do not collect international duties or taxes.

We are not responsible for customs fees charged to you, and cannot estimate what they may be (if any).
We accept Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover, JCB, Diner's Club, and PayPal. For PayPal e-Check payments, we will ship your order as soon as your payment has cleared.
