Was I charged twice?

We know what a scary feeling that is! Luckily, your card should only be charged once when your order is submitted.

If you just placed your order, what you are seeing on your bank account is an authorization. This is a common bank practice handling debit/credit card transactions to ensure sufficient funds and account authenticity. This authorization will clear (depending on your bank, usually within 48 - 72 hours.) If you need help speeding up the process, you can contact the issuing bank of your debit/credit card.

To make sure your card doesn’t accidentally get run twice, please only click the "Place Order" button once!

I get an error message when I enter my shipping and billing addresses. What’s going on?

Error messages are so pesky, aren’t they? If you are receiving one, there may be a problem with your credit card information, billing or shipping address. The billing address has to match exactly what your bank has on file. Double check all of your information closely and look for any typos. Sometimes re-formatting the names and addresses in your billing information does the trick!

My order won't go through. What should I do?

You’re so close to having your dream items headed to you, and then the order won’t submit! It’s the worst feeling. If you’re still receiving an error message after checking over your credit card information, billing and shipping address, make sure you’re using the latest version of your web browser. Whatever you do, only click the "Place Order" button once… we would hate for your card to be authorized more than once by mistake!

If you continue to receive error messages, please contact us by phone at (334) 246-3901 Monday - Friday 8:00pm - 4:30pm CST or send an email to help@shopthemint.com.

California's Proposition 65 allows for all consumers who reside in the state of California to be provided with warnings for products that contain any chemicals that, when exposed to people above a certain level, are known to cause cancer and birth defects or any other reproductive harm.

WARNING: The materials used in this product contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

In posting this warning, our goal is to inform you that one or more of the chemicals listed in Prop 65 may be present in our products.

Monogramming

Only certain items can be monogrammed. To see a list of all products that offer monogramming, click here.

Can I purchase an item without a monogram?

All products that offer monogram can be purchased as blanks. Simply skip the monogram information step and proceed as a standard order!

How much does adding a monogram cost?

Monogram costs may vary. The additional cost to monogram a product will be listed on its product detail page.

How will my initials display on my monogrammed product?

The standard personalization style we suggest is a 3-letter monogram with the middle letter representing the last name and being larger in size. The space to the left of the last name initial holds the initial for the first name, the space to the right holds the initial for the middle name.

Do you offer other personalization styles outside of the three-letter monogram?

Currently, we only offer three-letter monogramming.
