Shipping & Returns

Shipping Policy:

Note about order shipment times: Currently, we have a 2-4 business day processing time for most orders. All orders with express shipping methods selected are processed with priority.

Due to situations beyond our control--COVID-19 staffing shortages, wildfire conditions, and extreme weather--we are seeing delays in carriers delivering shipments. These delays are on both standard and express shipping methods. If the delay is due to one of these situations, we cannot reimburse shipping fees for packages that fail to arrive within the expected timeframe. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

We are not responsible for inaccurate shipping information,  we print exactly what is on your account to guarantee 100% accuracy in shipping addresses.  Also, unless you specify to us at the time of check out that you wish to have insurance placed on your items we are shipping to you, after we deliver to the post office we are no longer responsible for your order.  ALL of the orders come with a tracking number to confirm proper and timely delivery of your package. Please note that any orders placed with expedited shipping service such as USPS Priority Mail Express, UPS 2nd Day Air, UPS Next Day Air, FedEx 2 Day or FedEx Overnight after 2 pm PST will ship the next business day.
