Shipping

If you're within 100km of our store you'll be given the option of free local pickup in store. Pick up during opening hours only, please wait until you've been notified that your order is ready for pickup.

We have live 4D calculated shipping rates you’re able to see before you check out.  We also have local pickup in BC and FREE SHIPPING over $99! 

With Canada Post, anything thicker than a standard envelope (like a single straw, or mason jar lid) is automatically considered a package, and package rates start at around $10 for same city delivery. That is the bad news. The good news is that Canadian Shipping doesn't go up very quickly from that starting point, so a large heavy box of items isn't crazy expensive.

We aim to ship within one to three business days from the day you order. However, due to the handmade nature of some of our products we can take up to 10 days to ship any order. We ship Canada Post Regular Parcel level or faster. We usually have the option of Expedited Shipping at checkout if you're in a rush please choose that and let us know in the notes section at checkout.

We ship all orders from Surrey or Langley, BC.

We do! However, we currently only ship internationally from our US website www.masonjarmerchant.com.

Product Care

Two easy ways: 

1. Any food oil like coconut oil or olive oil will break down adhesive residue. Make a paste of oil and baking soda, let sit on the adhesive for a few minutes and then rub with a washcloth until the adhesive is gone. Finish with a quick wash with dish soap. 

2. Rubbing alcohol and a rag - with caution! The rubbing alcohol will dissolve sticky residue but can also break down the ink on our printed vinyl decals that you'd find on our Mason Jar Tumblers. Do not soak the jar in rubbing alcohol. Using a washcloth or paper towel, pour a small amount of rubbing alcohol on the cloth and rub over the adhesive until gone. Make sure not to get any on the printed decal.

For lid care, please see next tab.

For older style tumblers made with small pieces of solid color vinyl (or multiple solid colors) follow these instructions: We recommend hand-washing your jar using only a soft dish brush and gentle dish soap on the decals.   You may also wash the jar with a cloth inside and rinsing with water without scrubbing the exterior decals.   Small decals or sharp corners may snag on a dishcloth, this is not recommended.   With larger designs without small pieces you may try washing your jar in the top rack of your dishwasher with the design facing the exterior wall of the dishwasher, but try this at your own risk.  We have had jars go through hundreds of times with no ill effects, and other jars that were destroyed in one washing.  It is our guess that even the detergent used can make the difference (anything containing essential oils seems to break down the adhesive).   Small pieces (which make the design super cool) are more vulnerable to wear than larger pieces.   If you have a design failure please let us know! 


For the current style tumbler, printed vinyl decals on clear or white premium vinyl: These premium custom printed labels are permanent and rated for outdoor use up to 5 years and they are dishwasher safe! The ink used is a solvent based ink which means it is can break down if exposed to rubbing alcohol or other solvents. If you know that your tumbler is going to be in frequent contact with solvents please let us know so that we can laminate your decal for protection.

Canning lids will rust if left in water, and previously we recommended that they be hand washed only. We have since discovered that lids will do great in the dishwasher if you follow these simple steps.

1. Take the lid and band off your jar.

2. Push grommet out of the lid from the top down and place in a secure basket or over a peg in your dishwasher.

3. Place lid on a peg or in a slot where it is close to vertical.

4. Place ring with top side up in as flat a position as possible usually over a peg or two to ensure it can’t move.

5. Make sure your dishwasher is set to a dry cycle, or take your lid and ring out to dry asap.

6. Wait until all pieces, especially the grommet, are completely dry before popping the grommet back in the lid from the top down. 

BONUS QUESTION:Why do I need to remove and replace the grommet from the top down?  

We hand drill all our lids, and sometimes we are left with a slightly bent metal edge that could cut the silicone. Removing and installing the grommet from the top ensures that you’re only working with the smooth side of the metal.

These should be hand washed. The paint is very durable but dishwashers can effect the adhesion of the paint to the lid or jar. If you're dealing with a straw lid, always remove grommet prior to washing and make sure all parts are completely dry before reassembling them. Make sure to remove and replace the grommet from the top of the lid down. 

BONUS QUESTION:Why do I need to remove and replace the grommet from the top down?  

We hand drill all our lids, and sometimes we are left with a slightly bent metal edge that could cut the silicone. Removing and installing the grommet from the top ensures that you’re only working with the smooth side of the metal.

If rust does occur, you can gently scrub the rusty portions with baking soda and oil. Be careful not to broadly scrub the top or decaled portion of your lid, even baking soda can leave scratch marks on your lid, or vinyl decal. 

Once rust is removed you can slow down the formation of future rust with olive oil, coconut oil, or food safe wax like beeswax to protect from further rusting.

Removable silicone grommets are dishwasher safe, if they accumulate rust, they can be scrubbed with any food safe oil mixed into a paste with baking soda or any other food safe abrasive.

All decorative metal lids are likely subject to rust.  Hand-wash recommended.

Zinc and aluminum will corrode in the dishwasher so these are hand wash only.

If you have a rusty or corroded jar ring you can scrub with an S.O.S Pad.  Heavy rust can be removed by soaking the affected area in white vinegar for 2 hours at a time, followed by scrubbing with a stainless steel scrub pad, aluminum foil or an S.O.S. Pad.  

Prolonged exposure to vinegar can completely dissolve the metal, so make sure and do this step when you won't get distracted and set a timer.

Check the individual product listing/directions but to our knowlege all are top rack dishwasher safe.

Metal bands are hand wash only. 

Plastic pieces are top rack dishwasher safe. 

Silicone tops are dishwasher safe and sanitizable. 

Fluffy Cozies:

These are quite thick and insulating.  All of our fluffy cozies are made with 'Super-wash Wool' (a blend of wool and synthetic fibres) and are machine washable. 

We recommend washing them inside out to reduce pilling and laying flat to dry. 

Thin Intricate Cozies:

These cozies are thin, more detailed and more expensive.  They are made with 100% Merino Wool and WILL SHRINK IN HOT WATER. They should be washed inside out on COLD / DELICATE and laid flat to dry. 

Any other cozy / sleeve:

Please follow the manufacturers directions.

Modern Jars (Without Wire Bail):

Plain jars are dishwasher safe though jars may gradually become etched over time with harsh dishwasher detergents.  

If you have a valuable older jar, you may want to hand wash it if you are washing it often, to prolong its pristine surface.

Vintage Wire Bail Jars:

Some jars with a wire bail are completely removable, older jars have a zinc wire holding the lower part of the bail in place.  If the entire bail can be removed, the jar itself is dishwasher safe.  If the lower bail can not be removed the entire jar should be hand washed only.  

Zinc and aluminum will corrode in the dishwasher.  

If you have a rusty or corroded wire bail you can scrub with an S.O.S Pad.  Heavy rust can be removed by soaking the affected area in white vinegar for 2 hours at a time followed by scrubbing with a stainless steel scrub pad, aluminum foil or an S.O.S. Pad.  

Prolonged exposure to vinegar can completely dissolve the metal, so make sure and do this step when you won't get distracted.

Chalkboard Labels:

If applied carefully and without bubbles or edges damaged, chalkboard labels can be run through the dishwasher (in our personal experience!) multiple times without any wear.  Every dishwasher is different, so we suggest washing one before you try the whole batch. 

Printed premium vinyl labels (like spice labels and waterproof stickers):
These premium custom printed labels are permanent and rated for outdoor use up to 5 years and they are dishwasher safe! The ink used is a solvent based ink which means it is can break down if exposed to rubbing alcohol or other solvents, avoid solvents!

BPA Free Reusable Plastic Straws, Stainless Steel Straws, Silicone Straws, Glass Straws and all straw cleaners are all dishwasher safe. *High five!*
