Do you have a store I can visit?
At the moment, we are an online based store only. As we continue to grow, this will change. You can, however, visit us at numerous tattoo conventions across Canada. Keep an eye out for where you’ll find us next!
Do I have to make an account?
No. An account is not required to shop with Source Tattoo Supply, however having an account will come in handy when you make repeat purchases as it saves your shipping information.
Help! I’m a local Calgary Artist and I need supplies today!
Not a problem. Once an order is placed, you are able to make a note on your order to have it rushed. Once your order is submitted to the warehouse, we will contact you to confirm if we are able to fulfill your order in the time you’ve requested (please DO NOT come to pick up your order before you receive a 'pick up times' email)
Will you save my credit card information?
No. Even though we use a secure method of payment, we do no save any credit card information. You are required to re-enter your credit card information with each transaction.
How do I get free shipping?
It’s easy! Once you spend $200.00 (before shipping and taxes), you are eligible for free ground shipping**. Enter ‘ freeshipping ‘ in the NOTES section of your order and we will remove shipping charges (up to $25*) for ground shipping from your order.
**Please keep in mind, this offer is for Ground Shipping Only. You will be charged normal shipping prices for Priority Shipments. If your order includes products that are marked as 'excluded from free shipping* we will add a surcharge of $10 per excluded item up to the original shipping cost.
*If your shipping charges exceed $25, the difference will be charged to your order.
What are the shipping cut off times?
Orders placed before 11am MST will be processed and shipped/ ready for pick up that day (pick up orders are not available Sunday). Orders placed after 11am will be prepared our next business day.
If you are in a rush and need your order as soon as possible, please make a note on the order, or call and we will do our best to try to accommodate your request.
How long will my shipment take to arrive once I’ve placed my order?
Alberta orders usually arrive within 2-3 business days for ground delivery. Outside of Alberta, orders can be expected to arrive within 5-7 business days for ground delivery.
My Billing address wont work?!
Upon completing your payment process, make sure that you are using the correct billing address. The billing address is the address that the credit card is registered to, which is not always the same as the shipping location.
If you continue to have troubles with your billing address, please contact your credit card company to verify the correct address.
*Prepaid credit cards activation and registration varies. Please contact your credit card company if you are experiencing difficulties.
