updated 03/03/12


You can trust that your order will be quickly processed and safely delivered. When completing your order, you will be asked to check a box stating that you understand that there is a 3–5-day processing time. We try to get orders processed the day it comes in. But due to the COVID virus. Things like supply and delivery issues has slowed things down some. Things are getting better. But we have had the USPS tell us that late deliveries could be out as much as 30 days. We have found UPS is the most reliable and on time with less damaged to shipments. But we ship with UPS and USPS. This choice is left to your customer.

Please understand that the days shown for order processing is only an estimate. (3–5-day processing time) Not including weekends or holidays.

So, if we are shipping your 2 Day Air on a Friday. You should receive it on the next Tuesday. They do not count weekends or holidays. So, if it shipped on Friday. The Monday is counted as day 1 and Tuesday is day 2 the delivery day.

If we are shipping 1-Next Day Air on a Friday, then you would receive it on the next Monday.

Remember with all orders the 3–5-day processing time may be added to the ship time you choose. We will try to get this type of shipping out as fast as we can.
