Shipping Information

Order Processing

All orders for items in stock are processed within 1-2 business days (excluding weekends and holidays) after receiving your order confirmation email. When your order ships, you will receive another automatic email confirming the shipment of the order.

Domestic Economy Shipping Rates

Orders $50 or more: Free

Orders under $50: $2.99 flat rate

Economy shipments are ground shipments and generally arrive within 1 week.

Generally, economy shipments are delivered by USPS First Class Mail, USPS Media Mail, FedEx Ground, or UPS Ground service, depending on the destination and size of the order.

Domestic Expedited Shipping Rates

Orders under $100: $7.99 flat rate

Orders over $100: Calculated based on the size of the order and destination. During the check-out process, after entering your address, you’ll have an opportunity to review expedited shipping options and costs before paying and completing check-out.

Expedited shipping provides 2-4 business day delivery from the date of shipment.

Generally, expedited shipments are delivered via USPS Priority Mail, FedEx Express, FedEx Express Saver, or UPS 3-Day service, depending on the destination and size of the order.

While it is rare for an expedited parcel to not arrive on time, 2-4 business day service is not guaranteed.

Canadian Shipping Rates

All orders: $49.95 flat rate.

Due to the high cost of shipping and relatively slow delivery time from the US to Canada, we recommend that our Canadian customers order directly from a Canadian retailer such as Sunrise Marian Distribution. However, we understand that many items we carry are hard to find and welcome Canadian orders!

Other International Shipping

Shipping is only available to addresses in the United States and Canada. We are not able to ship to other international destinations at this time.

We accept returns for any reason within 30 days of delivery, for a full refund of the price of the product (or, if you’d prefer, a credit toward the purchase of a different product).

Please note that we cannot provide pre-paid return labels or refund shipping charges for discretionary returns.
