Ship Options and Delivery Times
Shipping methods, time, and cost
When deadlines are involved we HIGHLY recommend placing your order with a faster shipping method, such as USPS Priority Mail for domestic orders. We cannot guarantee changes to an order after it is sent for production, including the shipping method, though we do our best!
CUSTOMS NOTE: Duties or taxes levied for packages arriving from outside the destination country are determined by local Customs and Immigration agencies and ARE the responsibility of the recipient. We cannot be held responsible for any Duties or Customs Taxes.

SuperSaver Shipping Methods
Our SuperSaver Shipping methods offer a great compromise between cost and shipping times! For international shipping, if your order total is over $30.00 we offer a flat rate ship cost of $15.99. Keep in mind that this is a very slow ship method (4-8 weeks) so don't use it if you are on a deadline. If time is not an issue this is a great option! For domestic shipping, if your order total is over $20.00 we offer a $5.99 flat rate for domestic shipments - this shipping method generally delivers within 2-3 business days once production is complete. Feel free to check with us on what ship method would be best for you based on your deadline via Live Chat or email, we're happy to help!

What is the expected delivery time to (insert destination here)?Typically, delivery within the US takes a week and it can take anywhere from 1 - 8 weeks for International, depending on the shipping method.
Please note: these are estimates since delivery time completely depends on the ship to address, package weight, and shipping method selected.
- FedEx business days are Monday through Friday. Tracking numbers are available for all Fedex orders. Fedex does not deliver to Post Office (PO) Boxes.
- USPS business days are Monday through Saturday. USPS customers receive a Delivery Confirmation number for each package. All orders addressed to an APO or FPO (military mail) or Post Office Box must be shipped via USPS.
- International packages are delivered via the postal service of the destination country. We cannot ship to international PO Boxes.
- These times are estimates and may be affected by factors over which we have no control. These factors include incorrect delivery address, customs delays, and Post Office delivery restrictions. Orders which are affected by these factors tend to arrive in 5-6 weeks, and we will take no action on these orders during that time.
