COVID-19 Preventions and Updates

Updated November 22nd, 2021.

During these unusual circumstances, we are doing our best to continue to provide premium winter photography gloves to photographers all around the world. While our operations at Vallerret continue as normal, we do rely on our fulfillment centers for shipping and will update this information as the ongoing COVID-19 situation evolves. 

The health of our employees and the employees of our fulfillment center is our primary concern.

Our warehouses practice regularly sanitation and are providing proper training for the employees about the virus including best methods of prevention.

As our shipping centers have been deemed as an "essential service", they remain open and operating with full staff.

We know it isn't ideal, but due to the current situation we often see that packages are backed up in the queue to enter the country of the destination. In some extreme cases delivery, even for short distances can be delayed up to several weeks.  

North America Shipping Center Update:

Our US shipping center is receiving high order volumes and with the additional sanitation and handling measures they are taking to protect their staff and customers, they are experiencing processing delays of 1-4 working days. 
  • Your order will be shipped 1-4 working days from order date.
The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has announced delays for Priority Mail and First-Class Package Service.
  • First Class Package Service with 2-day and 3-day service commitments will extend to 3 and 4 days, respectively.

This may affect estimated delivery time of your order and we thank you for your patience.
