Frequently Asked Questions
Is my information secure when I shop at MESA Supplies?
Yes, your information is secure. Here's how:
- Your credit card information is never stored with your account, so even if someone manages to steal your password and log in to your account, they would not have access to any financial information.
- All credit card transactions are processed through Authorize.net, a highly trusted name in credit card processing. Click on the Verified Merchant seal on the left side of this page to confirm that this site is registered with and uses Authorize.net.
- During checkout, your transaction is protected with 128-bit encryption provided by GeoTrust, another highly trusted name in shopping cart security. Encryption means that even if someone were able to intercept the transaction they would not be able to read it, so your credit card information is fully protected. You can easily confirm whether you are protected with encryption by looking for "https" in the address bar of your browser and the lock symbol in the bottom right of the browser window. You should always see both of these on any webpage that is asking for credit card information. Please click the GeoTrust SiteSafe logo on the left side of this page for more information.

When can I expect my order?
Orders are typically shipped no later than the next business day, often the same day. When your order is shipped, you will receive an email with your tracking number. You can also access this information in the
My Account page. The delivery time for your order will vary depending on the shipping options you choose during checkout.
Why is my thread color not the same as on the website?
Colors can vary greatly on different computer screens. Also, we have tried to photograph the colors as accurately as possible, but the high sheen of our thread makes the thread appear to be lighter or darker depending on the light source and your point of view. For the best color match, please request a thread chart (free when you order $25 or more in thread - limit one free chart per customer).
What is MESA's return policy?
MESA Supplies will accept returns for exchange only if product packaging has not been opened. Please contact Customer Service at 800-330-3867 Option 3 for an RMA. Please retain all packaging, and have your order number ready when you call.
How can I get the sales tax charges removed from my order?
Sales tax is only charged for customers living in Texas. If you own a business in Texas and wish to purchase supplies without paying sales tax, you will need to fax the following documents to
- Texas Sales and Use Tax Resale Certificate Download here
- Texas Sales and Use Tax Exemption Certification Download here
- A copy of your Texas Sales and Use Tax Permit
Be sure to include your name and the email address that you used to register your account so we can find you in our system and change your status to non-taxable. You will receive an email letting you know when this has been completed.
