Am I paying now or after for Pre-Sale items?
Payment will be taken up front for all orders including the pre-sale items. If an item is backordered or more books need to be printed, we will keep you posted on the arrival time.
Do I pay shipping?
Yes, you choose your shipping
preference. Speak Life Badges has
negotiated really great shipping rates with Canada Post and will pass the
savings on to you.
Can books be shipped internationally?
We foresee most of our market being in
the US and Canada. However, we will make
the shipping option to international destinations available. Our main concern is how the VAT and duty will
affect you once it enters your home country.
Please note that the buyer is responsible for all duty and taxes.
If I am local to Speak Life Badges, may I pick up my book(s)?
Unfortunately, we do not have a location for pickup of regular orders at this time. If you are buying several books or have a large orders and would like to make pickup arrangements, please contact us before purchase.
Do I pay taxes?
Taxes are applicable on all items
shipped to Canadian addresses. Books are
taxed at 5% (GST), all other items have 13% HST. If you are shipping outside of Canada, there are
no taxes applied on the items; however, you may be required to pay duties and
taxes for crossing the border.
We hope to have a shipping location from within the USA soon, but we cannot guarantee this prior to the Launch. Watch for announcements.
Can I buy Speak Life Badges on Amazon?
Speak Life Badges is available for purchase

My child is five. Which Speak Life Badges book should I buy?
I Am Special would
be perfect for your five year old.
I have a four year old and a nine year old. Which Speak Life Badges book should I buy?
I Am Special would be just right for your four year old and I Am Priceless would
benefit your nine year old. However, you
do not have to buy both books. We
suggest you purchase I Am Priceless and modify the words to the
understanding of your four year old.
Both will love receiving the badges and will soak up your special words
What do I do when I have used up all of the sticker badges?
Speak Life Badges provides badge refill
packs for each of the three books, I Am Special; I Am Priceless; and I Am Smart. Visit www.speaklifebadges.com to
purchase a refill pack for the script book you have already purchased. Badge refill packs cannot be purchased
without having previously purchased the corresponding script book. Script books must accompany all sticker
badges for achieving the greatest impact towards speaking life.

Can I use these badges and scripts for adults?
While Speak Life Badges are geared towards children ages 3-13, we shout a
great big, “Yes!” It feels great to be recognized and even adults can have fun
and enjoy a good laugh as they proudly wear their Speak Life sticker on their
shirt. And remember, the greatest impact
are your sincere words spoken to encourage, motivate and edify. So use any or all of the script to bless a
friend. The scripts are words of truth
no matter what age you are.
