Shipping & returns


After placing an order and completing the payment, you will receive an automated order confirmation by email. It is possible that this e-mail ends up in your spam folder, so keep an eye on that as well.

  • If all items are in stock, your package will be packed the same day and shipped the next opportunity, which is a maximum of two working days after placing your order.
  • If you have ordered one or more of our 3D prints that are not in stock, they must be produced. The processing time of a print is usually 5 to 7 working days, this is in addition to the delivery time.

After the order has been delivered to DHL or PostNL, the delivery time within the Netherlands is 1 to 2 working days. For deliveries outside the Netherlands, different delivery times apply, these differ per country.

If an order is only partially in stock, shipping will be delayed until the order is complete. We do not do partial deliveries.

Exceptional delivery times
In busy periods the delivery time can temporarily increase to 2 weeks, you will always be informed about this. Empire of Minis cannot guarantee any delivery time.

Pick up order
In some cases it is possible to pick up your order. Pick-up is only possible if there has been contact about this in advance and the pick-up appointment has been confirmed (Valkenswaard, North-Brabant).

If shipping costs are included in the price, the price remains the same. If separate shipping costs would be charged, these will be refunded.

Delivery services
We work with PostNL and DHL and choose the most suitable delivery service depending on the package. Parcel post is always sent with a track and trace code.

If an order includes 'free shipping', Empire of Minis will choose the shipping method and delivery service.

Packing material
All items are carefully packed to minimize the risk of damage. Models are always sent via parcel post to prevent damage. Other items, such as a set of dice, will be sent by letterbox package in a bubble envelope whenever possible. Letterbox packages are only available when shipping within the Netherlands.

For our packages we reuse boxes and filling material that we have at our disposal, most of it are materials that we have received from packages sent to us by our suppliers. We will always choose for the most eco product, like packing tape of recycled plastic. We do this to do our part to reduce the burden on the environment.
