🚚 Priority & Express Delivery
Orders over $100 receive a free upgrade to USPS Priority Mail and will arrive in branded USPS Priority Packaging.
Upgrading your shipping speed does not expedite the order processing of an order. We are unable to expedite this process and generally takes 1-3 business days for production.
Seasonal Note: (October - December & February - July) There are times during the year where there is seasonal increase in volume or weather and USPS logistical delays during COVID-19, reduced staffing due to social distancing mandates, may cause unforeseen delays in processing and therefore exact delivery times can only be an estimate. This generally ads about 2-3 business days to the standard delivery timeframe in effected USPS hubs.
Every order received goes through a process of verification, preparation, production, packaging, shipping and transfer to the mail carrier. Packages are shipped with USPS first class mail with tracking included as a part of our dedication to order transparency.
Please allow adequate time for preparation of delivery. If you have questions about a package or tracking number which has been received and are concerned about it's progress, please read our in-depth experience we've shared in regards to USPS and what we have experienced during COVID-19 here.
