All in stock items are shipped via ground USPS. Orders placed on Fridays will not begin processing until the following Monday (or business day incase of a Monday holiday). Average ground shipping time is 7-14 business days. This is not a guarantee and the mail can run slowly occasionally. We do not guarantee delivery dates. You may not cancel any order before 30 business days.

When selecting a shipping method you are paying for the method by which an item is shipped not the number of days for an item to be delivered. Priority mail is the 2-3 day delivery method. We do not offer shipping refunds for items not arriving in 2-3 days. The shipping method selected does not affect processing time. We do not offer refunds or returns on express orders. If you order the express method with a wear date that is close to processing time and delivery time you are assuming the risk that your order may not arrive on time.

*In some cases processing time may be faster by shipping directly from the manufactuer. Manufacturer may use a different shipping company. This method is chosen when your order can be processed more quickly.

Should you not receive your item due to a postal issue we will attempt to reship your order. (For example: Your tracking number shows an item is scanned at a sorting facility and then there is no further information for several days. This happens rarely, but has happened and you can be assured we will reship your items) We can not be responsible for the delivery time in cases of slow post, but contact us if your tracking number seems slow. We will help in finding information and getting your order completed to you.

All items must be shipped to the billing address on the credit card. Absolutely no exceptions! Separate shipping addresses may be used for repeat customers only with prior approval. If you are a return customer and wish to use a separate shipping address please also note it in the comments box.
