Shipping: All orders ship from New York City. We strive to ship every order within 24 hours of receipt; if you need your order to ship out same-day, please make a note on the checkout page or contact us via email.

International Shipping: We ship internationally from the United State using UPS. If you prefer to use a different carrier, please contact us at sales@thecostumesource.com PRIOR to placing an order. The Costume Source is not responsible for payment of local customs and duties, and if additional duties are required, these will be billed separately. If you are placing an international order, please ensure that someone is available to sign for your package at the delivery location- TCS accepts no responsibility for delivery once packages have been tendered to the shipper.

Pickups: Pickup times are generally between 9AM and 6PM Eastern at our location in the Garment District. You should receive an email confirmation when your pickup order is ready.

Tax Exempt: If you are shopping for a tax exempt organization, please create an account, and then email us your exemption paperwork at tcs@thecostumesource.com. We can then set you up as a tax exempt customer. If you are using your personal email address- jdoe@gmail.com, rather than jdoe@taxexempttheatre.org- or are shopping for more than one exempt organization, please indicate on each order for which tax exempt organization you're purchasing.

Returns: We hope you love your purchase, but just in case, we'll gladly accept returns within 30 days from date of purchase on all goods except cut yardage, intimate apparel, and special orders. We are happy to provide you with a return label upon request, which will be deducted from the value of your return. Returns may be subject to a restocking fee. If you receive a damaged or defective product, please contact us immediately at tcs@thecostumesource.com.

Magnetic Tapes: On Magnetic Snap Tape, the magnets are aligned in the center of the tape, so when closed, the two sides of the tape are stacked right on top of each other. It should be stitched down on both edges of the tape. In the Magnetic Zipper Tape, the magnets are aligned on the edge of the tapes, so when closed, the tape extends beyond the closure on either side. It can be sewn in in the same way as a zipper, with stitching on only one side. Different magnet intervals and strengths are available by special order.
