Orders are generally processed and shipped the same day that they are received.
All orders are shipped by USPS First Class Mail unless otherwise requested. Your package should arrive in 3 to 5 business days, depending on your location. If Priority mail is requested, delivery can be expected within 2-3 business days. These time frames are not guaranteed and may change depending on the speed of the US Postal Service. If you want a guaranteed delivery time, we suggest that you request FedEx Next Day, or FedEx 2 Day.
Standard shipping by USPS First Class Mail does NOT include insurance. If insurance is desired you must select from the other "insured" options. USPS Priority Mail includes insurance for values of $50 or less. FedEx shipments are insured for the stated value of the package contents.
