Shipping Confirmation, Insurance, Lost or Stolen Shipments

  • Orders weighing over 13 oz. (.368kg) are sent USPS Priority Post, UPS, or FedEx. A shipping confirmation will be automatically emailed to you from the shipping carrier. Orders weighing less than 13 oz. may be sent USPS First Class Post with no shipping confirmation. Orders sent UPS or FEDEX automatically include $100 insurance of product value. Orders lost in the mail, refused at the destination or not delivered by the postal service can be replaced at an additional cost upon customer's request. Shipping insurance can be purchased at a very nominal cost. Please contact us or leave a note at checkout to add insurance.

Attention Customers with P.O. Boxes (must be sent via USPS)

  • Most shipments are sent using the United Stated Postal Service for Priority (includes delivery confirmation) (orders over 13 oz.) or First Class Mail (does not include delivery confirmation) (orders under 13 oz.). If you prefer to have your order sent to a PO BOX, please indicate this when you check out in the space for notes or comments. Please indicate exactly where you want your order sent to. This information will insure faster delivery time and safe delivery of your order to you.

  • Incorrect shipping addresses and/or postal codes: Please be careful to list your correct shipping address and/or postal code at check-out. If an incorrect address and/or postal code is given at time of order and shipment is either lost in the mail or not received, a replacement order will be the responsibility of the customer.
