Once the tracking number has been created your order will ship within one business day. We do not ship over weekends (Saturday & Sunday) and we also do not ship on federal holidays.

Orders placed before 12pm PST will typically (~90% of the time) ship the same day. Otherwise they will ship out the following business day. Unanticipated delays are possible so please allow 1-2 business days for your order to ship. We do not ship on Sundays, Saturdays or federal holidays. Large and special orders may require an additional 1-3 days for processing.

Packages typically take 1-3 business days to reach the courier. However this can sometime take an additional business day.

Yes, only if the order has not been shipped yet. If you want to cancel any order or have a dispute please contact support.
What should I do if Shipping Label Created is still shown next to my order?
Please be aware that the postal service must pick up the box from our warehouse after your package has been made and wrapped. Before the package is picked up by the courier, it may take 1-3 business days, depending on the time and day.
Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your tracking number and any further inquiries you may have about the shipment.
Given the volume of orders we get each day, it occasionally occurs that a package may be lost in transit. Therefore, if your tracking has not changed after three days, please email us, and we would be happy to help you get the package to you as soon as possible.
What should I do if customs hold my package?
When you order something from a foreign country, we cannot guarantee that it will reach you because we regrettably have no control over customs.
My tracking indicates that my order was delivered, but I never got it.
Oh no, it appears that the incorrect address was again input. We do occasionally go through this, believe it or not. If you can give us the right address in this situation, we will reship your order at no additional cost.
You will only ever have one chance, and you won’t be as fortunate the second time.
Why is my order on USPS not updating?
Our friendship with USPS dates back many years, yet even they make mistakes occasionally. if, after shipping, your order has been more than two weeks (14 days) without a USPS update.
You still only have one chance, but we will send you a fresh order absolutely FREE.
How long does it typically take for USPS to track your shipment?
Our goal is to provide you with a tracking number within 24 hours. Please get in touch with the support if, after 24 hours, you have not received a tracking number.

Why are UPS and FedEx so expensive? Because of Surcharge fees.
We welcome orders from anywhere in the world and do our best to guarantee delivery. However, if you are using a mail forwarding service we cannot guarantee successful delivery to the forwarded mail address, as this is not something we control.
There may be shipping restrictions on some products, and some products may not be shipped to some destinations. We post USA shipping restrictions on product listings.
Will a Signature Be Required?
Orders over $200 or those shipped by DHL, UPS & FedEx will require a signature for delivery, we cannot waive the signature. This is to protect your order from being lost or stolen. Orders $200 or less do not require a signature but this can be requested by writing an order note at checkout. USPS international shipping cannot require a signature, in that case signature will not be required.
If you would like to arrange a better delivery or pickup time we will provide contact details for the courier once the package ships. If you miss the first delivery attempt the courier will make additional attempts as well as leave a delivery slip to pickup the package from the local post office.
If you would like to hold the package until a later date please contact us and we can arrange this as long as the order has not shipped out.
How Can I Cancel My Order?
All orders are held for 1 hour to allow for modification or cancellation. After this time we cannot guarantee we will intercept an order for cancellation.
If you are a registered user please find your order on the Order History page and then select the “Cancel” or “Request Cancel” button. If this is not possible please contact us immediately. We will do our best to accommodate you.
My Package is Late!
Packages are late over 25% of the time, there is nothing we can do about this and we will not refund the cost of a shipping.
My Package Tracking is Not Updating!
Couriers can lose track of packages but that does not mean they are lost for good. It may turn up if we give it enough time.
Domestic (USA): If a domestic package does not update for over 7 days please contact the courier.
Courier contact information is provided in our tracking update emails. If the courier does not know where the package is please contact us. If sufficient time has elapsed, we will deem the package lost and issue a free reship.
My Package wasn’t Delivered!
If the courier claims your package was delivered but you have not received it, it is possible a neighbor or front desk receptionist has it. Please contact the courier’s local office and speak to the postmaster. They will have GPS coordinates on each tracking update and can confirm where it was delivered, when and to whom. If the postmaster claims the package was delivered correctly, please wait at least 1 week for the package to turn up. If it does not turn up please contact us.
