How do I place an order at Period Fabrics?
Can I get fabric samples?
Yes, we will be happy to mail you samples for $0.50 each plus $2 shipping and handling. We will usually be able to get your samples out within a few days and they will be sent via First Class mail. It is very important that you send the sample back to us when placing an order to ensure you get the right fabric. Doing so also allows us to give you a credit toward your purchase in the amount of your sample cost.
What is the width of your fabric?
The fabric widths vary from one fabric to another and even from one roll to another, but they generally range between 30 inches and 60 inches. The fabric widths are included with each fabric description. All our fabrics are priced by the linear yard, and takes into account the fabric width.
What shipping company and method do you use?
Generally, we will use UPS ground, unless the customer specifies another preference. The customer is always responsible for the shipping costs and we will do our best to save you money there, too!
