Shipping Speeds

When do you ship?

We mostly ship on Monday's and Tuesdays, but try to ship all orders within 24-48 business hours, but there are occasions where things can be delayed up to 3-5 business days.  You will receive a tracking e-mail once your order has shipped.  All orders are dropped off within 24 hours of that e-mail, if not before.  We DO NOT guarantee ANY specific shipping times, as that is completely out of our control.

Payment Plans may take an extra day or two due to the fact that the final payment may fall on a strange day, or the system may not notify us immediately.  See the Payment Plan page for details.

Please try to remember I am just one person with some help from my amazing parents.  This is a small small business, and I can't keep up with Amazon's shipping speeds or prices.

How long does shipping take?

90% of our shipments are sent via USPS.  First class packages will take approximately 5-8 business days, Priority takes approximately 3-5 business days.  Larger orders and ones with free ground shipping typically take 5-8 business days through UPS.

These are simply ESTIMATED times and not guaranteed.  Once they are dropped off with the shipping companies, I have zero control of how fast they move.  I have no contacts with these companies to even get additional updates for them.  Again, please remember I'm a tiny fish in the shipping sea and they do not give me the same access as larger companies.
