Important Disclaimer About Shipping Times
While most in-stock orders will ship within 1 business day, it's important to know that the shipping time is based on actual transit time once an order has shipped, but does not include order processing time. For example, if you choose a next day method, it does not necessarily mean you will get your order the next day. It will arrive next business day once it has been shipped. If you need something by a specific date, please contact us prior to ordering so we can confirm when your order can actually ship.
We reserve the right to use an equivalent shipping method.

Explanation of Shipping Methods (USA)
Flat Rate/Free Shipping
If you opt for the flat-rate or free shipping service, your order will be shipped the most cost-effective way. Normally that will be a USPS or UPS service. Your order will still be trackable, and your tracking number will be e-mailed once shipped. Most orders sent by this method will arrive in a week or less once shipped.
United States Postal Service (USPS)
What We Like About USPS
We chose to use USPS because orders typically cost less to ship, which saves you some money, they deliver on Saturday, and domestic transit time in most cases is within 2-3 business days. It also gives us the ability to ship to PO Boxes, APO/FPO and states like Alaska and Hawaii at a reasonable price. There is full tracking from time of pickup to delivery. For a better understanding of the USPS shipping methods, please read below in the shipping method explanation.
This is not a guaranteed shipping method, but 95% of orders will arrive within an estimated 2-3 business days anywhere in the US once they are shipped.
What We Like About UPS
Some people feel more comfortable with UPS, and that's ok. UPS deals with exact delivery time frames, unless there are delays, we should know exactly when a package will arrive. Here's a list of the UPS shipping methods we offer when checking out:
This is the standard ground method that generally takes 1-5 business days to arrive depending on your location once an order is shipped.
