Shipping & Returns

Holiday Shipping

Please note that due to delays with our shipping partners UPS, USPS, and FedEx there might be delays in receiving your holiday orders. We ask that you place your holiday orders in advance so you have a better chance of getting your purchases in time for the holidays.

Additionally, while media mail through USPS is a less expensive way to ship it is also the slowest. If you are using this option please place your holiday orders at least a month in advance to account for the delays.
