HOW DO I OBTAIN A SHIPPING ESTIMATE WITHOUT PLACING AN ORDER?
Simply add the items that you would like to your Shopping Cart, visit the "View Shopping Cart" page by clicking on the link at the top of all website pages, enter your ZIP Code into the "Get a Shipping Estimate" box and click the "Get Estimate" button.
In-stock products will ship within 1 business day. If an item is in stock, this processing timeframe will be indicated in the product description. Some of our items will ship to you directly from our suppliers, at no additional cost to you, so you may receive multiple packages. Your special order or custom items will also ship separately, and may take longer to process.
Calculating shipping charges is more complicated today than it has ever been, and based on weight and dimensions of the products ordered, in addition to the delivery address. We offer you a choice of several shipping methods.
Domestic Only: We offer USPS First Class shipping (3-5 days), to give you a lower-cost alternative for items under 13oz. USPS Priority Mail (2-3 days), Fedex Ground (1-7 days), and USPS Express Mail (overnight to some locations, otherwise 2 days). Please check www.usps.com for further information on shipping timeframes to your delivery zip code.
Occasionally, we may choose to upgrade your shipping method at our discretion, at no additional cost to you.
See Fedex ground delivery timeframe map here.
Fedex 2-day and Fedex overnight delivery are an available option. We cannot provide quotes in the shopping cart for these methods, as package dimensions as well as weight become a factor in calculating cost. If you would like to consider these two delivery methods, please contact us for a quote.
For your convenience, and to keep your costs lower, items are shipped without requiring a signature for delivery. In such cases, for larger items, your carrier may leave the package outside your home. If we ship an item to the correct address, and we get a confirmation of delivery from the carrier, then we are not responsible for packages that go missing after delivery. If your circumstances are such that you do not want packages left without a signature, please communicate that to us prior to your order shipping. Please note than an additional fee will apply for signature delivery.
CAN I CHOOSE MY SHIPPING METHOD IF I AM GETTING FREE SHIPPING?
The US Postal Service will deliver to P O Boxes. Fedex will not. Please do not enter a P O Box address if you plan to select Fedex as the shipping method. Our system will generate shipping labels automatically based on the address you enter. We cannot manually check each address and nor can the carriers. The carrier will receive your package and at some point, will redirect it back to us as undeliverable, which will require you to pay for re-shipment.
Yes, we ship outside of the United States, with the exception of certain products as regulated by U.S. Export Control regulations. Review our full International Order Policy.
Yes. We will ship using US Postal Service. However, we must comply with U.S. Export Control Laws and Regulations. Restrictions are applicable to some products. These will be noted on the product detail information. You will be contacted we cannot legally fulfill your order, and you will have the option to provide us with a U.S address for shipping.
You will receive email updates when your order ships. Check the status of your shipment by logging in to your account, if you created that account BEFORE or while placing your order.
Please understand that we cannot control third-party tracking updates. The US postal service is not required to scan or track first-class or priority mail. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. It will always be scanned at delivery, but not necessarily en route.
If you order items that require a longer processing time because they are made to order, your entire order will be held to ship together. However, on occasion, some items in your order may ship separately at no additional cost to you. In that case, your order status will change to "partially shipped". If your ordered item is in process, your status will read "pending" or "awaiting shipment". As soon as your package ships, the status will change to "shipped" and you will receive an email with tracking info. If you did not create a customer account at checkout, you will not be able to access order status information.
Many of our items ship from our warehouse in New York. However, depending on your location and the items you are ordering, we may ship some items directly to you from the manufacturer. In order to expedite your order, items may ship in multiple packages at no additional cost to you.
HOW DO YOU HANDLE WEEKEND ORDERS?
Any items ordered on a Saturday or Sunday, or on a holiday, will be processed the next business day.
PERSONALIZED/CUSTOMIZED & MADE TO ORDER ITEMS
Any items for which you have made graphics selections, or any other personalized or customized product selections, may ship directly from our suppliers to you. We cannot guarantee the method by which these items will ship, which may be different to the method that you select for any other items in your order. You will never be charged any more than the original amount you paid for shipping when you checked out, no matter how many packages you receive.
We are doing our best to keep inventory levels and availability updated. If we know that an item is out of stock, our website will indicate that it is on backorder, and you will be unable to place an order for that item until we receive it back in stock. Or, you may be able to pre-order the item, and it will ship when it is available. However, due to the limited nature of certain products we sell, and especially for orders placed over weekends, there may be occasions when we don't realize until after you place your order that our stock has been depleted. The item may not have been available when you ordered it originally (We couldn't update the website fast enough), or another customer's order placed ahead of yours may have depleted the available inventory. In this case, you will receive an e-mail or phone call notifying you of the circumstances. Many backordered items are restocked within 7-14 days. With that in mind, we can keep your order open and do our best to ship the item you ordered. If you would like to cancel your order, you may do so at any time prior to your order being processed, by contacting us.
