Orders and Shipping FAQ
Is Blenko glass dishwasher or microwave safe?
No. Dishwashers use high temperature, high pressure, and slightly corrosive particles to clean your “dishes.” Most dishwashers warn in print against placing fine china or glass in them. It is never a good practice to place in a dishwasher anything you value or anything susceptible to the pitting, surface film or other strong treatment that makes a dishwasher work, Blenko glass is not borosilicate based, like Corelle or Pyrex and other heat-resistant glasses are. Blenko strongly advises hand washing your quality handmade glassware to ensure the longest possible life and brilliance of our fine product.
Additionally, extreme hot and cold temperatures can cause breakage. We do not recommend you use our glass in dishwashers or microwaves.
How will you package my order?
We take extra caution in shipping to ensure safe delivery of your Blenko glass. Each order is selected by hand and packed in heavy duty corrugated shipping box. Pieces are then secured using special foam spray or individually wrapped in thick paper and/ or bubble wrap. Our goal is to make the best decisions to insure you glass arrives safely.
This individual consideration allows us to combine multiple items into the same box, saving you shipping costs and extra hassle.
Each order is guaranteed to arrive safely. When the improbable event occurs and your glass arrives damaged or broken we will gladly replace the items damaged during transit completely free.

What shipping methods do you provide?
Currently we offer only UPS or the option for you to pick up items from our factory in MIlton WV. You can find the currently available shipping methods on the Checkout page after adding items to your cart.
How do you calculate the cost of shipping?
You only pay one flat rate to have all of your items delivered safely to your door. To determine your order’s shipping cost, just check your cart!
Flat Rate (UPS Ground, 3-5 Business Days):
We use flat rate shipping based on order weight and dimensions. There are 5 shipping classes:
You will only be charged one fee based on the highest class that applies to your order.
Example 1: You buy one 384 Water Bottle (Shipping Class: Small) and one 6402P Owl Paperweight (Shipping Class: Extra-Small). The Water Bottle is the largest item in the order, and is in the Small shipping category. As such, you will only pay one $15 fee for UPS ground shipping with tracking for both items to be delivered.
Example 2: You buy one Snowflake Votive Set (Shipping Class: Small) and Two Molly Moocher Hurricanes (Shipping Class: Large). Because the Molly Moocher Hurricanes have the bigger class, you’ll only pay one $25 shipping and handling fee to ship all of your items.
How do I know what shipping class my item is?
You can view the item’s shipping class by viewing the “Additional Information” section on the item’s detail page located beneath the product image.
Will my item be exactly like in the picture online?
Our glass is Imperfectly Perfect. Handcrafted items, like Blenko glass, will vary in appearance. While our glass artisans strive to make every piece similar, the final product depends on many variables that add slight variations and character. We take pride in these hallmarks of handmade, individually executed glass.
Do you include a pricing list in the order?
Each order will include a packing list that includes the items in your shipment with no pricing shown.
What happens if my item arrives broken or damaged?
We guarantee the safe delivery of your order. While it is rare for a piece to arrive damaged, we understand that sometimes accidents happen. We will replace any item that arrives damaged completely free with the same product.
When will my order be delivered?
Typically orders leave our warehouse within 48 hours of placing your order. There are exceptions due to availability.
The shipping method selected during checkout will ultimately determine the arrival date of your order.
