Wild Gasmasks prides ourselves on the art of making the creative thoughts of our customers into a tangible item. It is our hope that this page will serve as a guide about what you can expect from us. There are many accessories and options available for each of the mask models we offer.
Please don’t send us your design idea unless you have committed to commissioning us. Unsolicited design Ideas will be rejected. At any given time we have ideas in the works and we do not wish to get into a “you stole my idea!” debate anytime in the future.
Before ordering, we ask that you view our product information for all safety and legal advisement.
The complexity of your order will determine how long you can expect to wait. Standard Masks take seven to ten weeks to produce, with our custom fit (hooded) products taking about ten to twelve weeks. The complexity of the paint design can also factor into these turn-around times. Orders essentially begin when the order queue status changes from “QUEUED” to “MANUFACTURING”.
While we love our work, Wild Gasmasks is not our full time income, so we give the above time periods with as much “wiggle room” as possible for any unforeseen circumstances which might take our time away from the lab. If your mask is part of a special event, we ask that you place your order with ample time to prepare your costume debut. If you need to gauge an upcoming event or deadline, by all means, contact us first.
Our primary point of sale is through our Paypal account. However, those without a Paypal account can use a or Visa or MasterCard to purchase our goods, through Paypal’s verified merchant system. Standard masks do not require a deposit, save for a possible “paint deposit” depending on how specialized (not to mention personal) your paint design is. (Essentially, if one cancels an order on a mask we have already painted to someone’s specific character or IP, we would not be able to re-sell the mask to anyone else.) If you so choose, we can initiate the request to your email address using a Paypal invoice, which will give you a formal and itemized detail of your entire order.
Be sure to let us know if the email address on your Paypal differs from the one you used to contact us. Wild Gasmasks understand the importance of Paypal receiving a portion of money every time we do business. Please send this payment with “Add Purchase Protection on eligible purchases” checked on. This ensures that your purchase is protected by Paypal, as well as allowing Paypal to collect their transaction fees. After receiving email notification of your order’s completion, payment must be received within two weeks or your order may be canceled.
Domestic orders will be sent by insured USPS Priority mail. International orders are also shipped via USPS but we cannot offer insurance, due to the item being picked up by the respective country’s courier service. International insurance can be purchased outside of USPS’ insurance, if one requires it. We happily accept orders from Europe, Oceana, Australia, and the Americas (If you think you do not see your area listed here, please inquire.)
Your mask will be shipped in a cloth bag of its own and carefully shipped. Due to the time that your mask may spend in transit, we only do a light spot cleaning. While we do clean our creatures before shipment, its recommended that you still clean the mask upon receiving it. Use a cloth with soapy water to clean your mask and then allow it to dry. Finish with your favorite latex dressing for a shiny look.
For overseas orders, please check your country for items falling under Tariff Code #9505900000, as this will help you determine your local VAT. Wild Gasmasks will never ship your item overseas, designated as a “gift”. While we do our best to help ease shipping costs, you will be responsible for all customs and duties upon pick up. While we can ensure that your order is put in the mail in a timely manner, international shipment times will vary from country to country.
