If you need something rushed, contact me and we can almost always work it out.


Default shipping: First Class Domestic and First Class International

This usually means a couple days or less to the west coast, 4-7 days to the east coast, and 5-14+ days to the rest of the world.

FYI: Tracking is not always updated reliably with First Class Mail. Also, tracking is NOT UPDATED reliably, if at all for First Class International mail once it leaves the USA. Don't hate me, I'm just the messenger. 

I do not ship via UPS or FedEx. Sorry/not sorry. 


Priority Mail - The biggest advantage to Priority Mail is that it includes insurance up to $100. Often this is worth the few extra bucks. It is very rare that a package gets damaged or lost, but it does happen.

Priority Mail may speed deliver over regular First Class Mail by a day or two, especially effective to the east coast.

Usually delivered in 1-3 days. Signature Confirmation available upon request. You can add this option at checkout.
