Dec. 2020 update: Current order processing times are averaging a few business days.
A: Orders placed by Noon EST normally ship the same day, Monday-Friday and some Saturdays (not including holidays). There may be a delay in processing your order if the billing address does not match what the credit card company has on file or when shipping to a different address.
A: Note: Delivery dates are not guaranteed, shipping charges will not be refunded for packages ariving later than expected. Shipping days only include business days and are from the date your order ships, not the date it's placed. USPS delivery business days do not include Sunday or holidays. UPS delivery business days do not include Saturday, Sunday, or holidays. If you need an order by a certain date contact us and we'll gladly help you choose the shipping option with the best chance of making it in time.
USPS First Class Mail can take up to 1-2 weeks to arrive, USPS Priority is usually 1-4 days to most of the US. USPS Express Mail is usually 1-2 days. UPS Ground can take up to 5 days, depending on your location.
Example: An order placed at 5pm Eastern on a Thursday (after our noon cutoff time) will ship Friday at the earliest, selecting UPS Next Day will have the order arrive on Monday (if not a holiday), it will not arrive on Saturday.
A: The tracking info given on USPS.com and UPS.com is often inaccurate, USPS First Class can take several more days longer than the estimated delivery date to arrive. USPS.com will sometimes show Sunday/Holiday delivery dates for Express Mail that are "Guaranteed", this only applies with extra services that are not included in the standard Express Mail service that we use (USPS hides this in their fine print). As noted in the previous question delivery dates are not guaranteed, shipping charges will not be refunded for packages ariving later than expected.
A: We offer USPS (First Class, Priority, and Express mail) and UPS (Ground, Next Day, Second Day, 3 Day Select).
