Shipping & Handling
Standard deliveries within the continental U.S. are sent via UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail from Los Angeles, California. Delivery time varies depending on location and product availability but generally takes from 3-10 business days. You will be advised of a delay on shipping that exceeds 30 days.
Standard shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam and APO (or other military address) will be charged an additional $3 fee, and is generally sent via USPS Priority Mail.

For quicker delivery, we offer a RUSH service. RUSH orders are generally shipped via UPS 2-Day and take 2 business days for delivery. Orders using the RUSH delivery option that are received by noon PST, Tuesday-Friday will be shipped the same day. Orders received after 12:00pm will be shipped on the next business weekday. If gift wrapping has been selected for any item, shipping may be delayed by up to one day. Please note that we are closed on Mondays. RUSH delivery is available within the 50 United States, but it is not available to PO Boxes and military addresses. Shipping and handling for RUSH delivery to Hawaii or Alaska may be charged an additional $3.

For orders that are to be shipped outside the United States, you will be sent an email that includes your shipping options and costs. Your order will not be shipped until we receive your reply to this email accepting one of the offered shipping options. Shipments to international addresses generally take about 1-2 weeks for Express Mail delivery and 2-4 weeks for Priority Mail.
OUT OF STOCK ITEMS
If we expect an out of stock item is going to take more than two weeks to be re-stocked, we will notify you by phone or email. If other items on your order are in stock, we will automatically ship them ahead and send the backorder when it becomes available. You will not be charged for your backordered item until it is shipped. You will not be charged extra shipping fees.
