    Q: What if my order does not arrive or there is a problem with delivery?
    What if my order doesn't arrive or there is problem with delivery?

    A: DTC ships orders via US Postal Service and all items are either hand delilvered to the post office or picked up during our daily postal service.

    DTC will do everything possible to ensure that your order is processed and delivered to an official mailing location. Each item processed at DTC is logged and confirmation of delivery to the post office is kept.

    Unfortunatly, once the order has been delivered or picked up - DTC no longer has contol of the item and is not responsible for the final delivery.

    We are happy to provide you with email confirmations on the creation of your shipping label and the tracking number. It is the responsibility of the customer to research any "lost" package or to submit any request for tracking.

    DTC will not refund for items lost in the mail.

    Q: What is the process once I place an order with DTC?
    What happens once I place an order with DTC?

    A: There are 2 sections to a DTC order 1) Mold Creation and 2) Shipping.

    Orders are processed on a daily basis, unless noted by a store message (vacation, out of office, etc). All of our molds are custom made to order, DTC does not carry inventory. Each mold will be poured, cured and inspected -- this process takes 5 to 7 days. Once the mold is ready to ship, you will be notified via email of shipping. Please see the FAQ on Shipping for ship times.

    Once you receive your purchased items: All silicone molds, cutters and bling ribbon should be washed with a soft cloth in a mild detergent and be allowed to dry prior to use. Use a soft cloth to dry cutters so that they do not sit with water on them which can cause rusting over time.

    Q: Are the molds FDA compliant?
    Are the molds, lace presses and veiners safe to use on edible items?

    A: Yes. All the molds/presses/veiners are always used with food items. Any use of these products with a non-food item (clay, wax, etc) negates the food grade charastics of the mold.

    DTC uses a Food Grade Silicone for all molds, presses and veiners. Below is the information from the FDA Compliance that makes this silicone food compliant.

    Indirect Food Additive Regulations

    CFR 21 parts 174-178 are “Indirect Food Additive Regulations”, of which CFR 177.2600 is part of. CFR 177.2600 covers “rubber articles intended for repeated use”. These are the guidelines that the FG catalyst conforms with. The specific use definition from CFR 21 177.2600 is as follows:

    “Rubber articles intended for repeated use may be safely used in producing, manufacturing, packing, processing, preparing, treating, packaging, transporting, or holding food, subject to the provisions of this section”. This section being 21CFR 177.2600.

    Further, these materials are not intended to have any technical effect in the food.

    QM Cat FG has been tested with QM 107 , 113 , 122 , 128 (10% catalyst) per the guidelines of CFR 177.2600 and the material has been found to be compliant.

    Q: Are the molds oven safe?
    Are the molds oven safe?

    A: Yes. And freezer safe too!

    All of our molds, presses or veiners are oven safe to 350 degrees. Some of the larger molds (sea shells, etc) can double as mini cake pans. They are also safe for melting hard candy in the oven.

    Alternate uses include using the molds for ice.

    Q: How flexible and durable are these molds?
    How flexible and durable is the silicone used to make these molds?

    A: All molds, presses and veiners are made with a Professional Grade FDA Compliant Moldmaking Silicone which provides the highest quality, details and flexibility that general purpose silicone products can not provide.

    Q: How should I store and care for my silicone molds?
    How should I store and care for my silicone molds?

    A: Prior to initial use of your molds make sure to gently wash the molds with a mild detergent and warm water. Allow the molds to fully air dry prior to use.

    When storing silicone molds it is best to keep them in a plastic bag or in a storage box, this will help keep them clean and help protect them between uses. Ensure the molds are laying flat, not folded on themselves, as they may conform to this new shape distorting the mold cavity. Storing the molds away from a constant heat source or direct sunlight will also ensure a prolonged production life of your new molds.
