Our Policies 


Our shop is currently open for business and accepting online orders. Due to school closures and nation-wide lock downs, we are experiencing a surge in orders. This may result in reduced inventory and slower processing times. Currently, our turnaround time 1-2 days, with shipments delivered within 3-5 days. I will continue to keep customers updated about any changes/delays.

As a family business, we are practicing all government issued health and safety guidelines.. Our family is currently self-isolating, including no contact with our shipping carriers or suppliers. We use gloves and masks when making/handling/packaging our products. Our inventory is stored in a closed area and work spaces are sanitized before and after each use. 

We are so grateful for all of the orders coming in. Your support makes a difference to our family, and we hope we are bringing some joy to yours.

With love and gratitude,



The Purple Fern is dedicated to caring for our earth and providing our customers with products that ensure a safe, enjoyable experience. We only use and sell products that are 100% natural with no harmful chemicals or toxins. Our products are also all 100% vegan (no animal products). Sustainability is very important to us, and we will always strive to source the most earth-conscious products and shipping options. Our paper products are made from 100% post consumer waste, and all of our shipping materials are recycled/ reused.



Our goal is to ship orders with as little waste as possible. We encourage you to recycle or reuse/re-purpose our boxes and packing materials to minimize our contribution to landfill. 

We ship anywhere in the US. Shipping rates are calculated during Checkout. Shipping rates are based on USPS First Class and Priority rates, as well as the sub total of purchased items.. All orders are shipped out within 1-2 business days via US Postal Service. Shipping and tracking information will be sent to you via email once your items have been mailed. 

We offer free delivery If you reside in Portland, Oregon. Be sure to select the option 'Local Delivery' at checkout and we will be in contact via email to arrange a suitable delivery day and time. The Purple Fern is not responsible for orders that are shipped to and/or delivered to an incorrect address due to customer error during the checkout process.

Photography and artwork play a large role in how we communicate our story and mission with others.
